Please share your comments on 3 of the following Points to Ponder questions. (Choose 3 of the questions below.)

What types of building information are best portrayed in 3D views?

  • I think the way a room feels is best shown in 3D, the flow and relation between furniture and dimensions of the space are more visible. These are probably the best views to show clients. People like contractors or anyone in construction would prefer simpler 2D views that provide more information on structural elements.

Should your design ideas always be conveyed through photorealistic renders?

  • Photorealistic renders present a more finished looking project. This can be really good for creating a convincing appeal or attractive mockup, but also may make it seem like the project is beyond the suggestions phase/doesn't have much flexibility.

Name some applications where viewing the building and model information in virtual reality or augmented reality would be most beneficial?

I think grand spaces/high ceilings/etc. (especially those that are hard to view in a single plane) could be really amplified by the use of virtual reality. I also think that outdoor environments would be enhanced by VR too.
