What types of building information are best portrayed in 3D views?
- Which stakeholders require 2D views, and why?
Give examples of how the building information for a specific location in the project needs to be filtered for different audiences and purposes?
Should your design ideas always be conveyed through photorealistic renders?
- Step-wise approach to rendering allows the client and the planner to focus on essential elements of the design and to gradually build complexity on those. A photorealistic render may cause distraction from the discussion and clarification of essential elements such as spatial functionality, relational proximity between objects, use cases for surface materials, etc.
Name some applications where viewing the building and model information in virtual reality or augmented reality would be most beneficial?
- Are there advantages to using a C.A.V.E as a virtual environment versus VR headsets?
Within the area of equipment maintenance and safety, health and environment there are regular on-site audits needed but not accessible (equipment is physically difficult to observe) or advisable, and in this case CAVE offers a safe and comprehensive view of the assets and their context. VR offers more single pointed look with regard to where the observer draws his attention to.
How can schedule views be used to assist with procurement and model-based estimating?
Schedules provide comprehensive listing of the full bill of materials for the model: building structure and inner equipment and furnishing. The schedules offer detailed description in terms of manufacturer, serial number, model, color, size, shape, etc (can be user defined) in order to ensure that the exact asset demands of the client are correctly detailed and priced. Schedules provide the basis for both capex and opex offers by turn-key suppliers or individual providers.
