Module 4 - Points to Ponder
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?

  • Contracters, designers, and builders. Anyone that needs information on how to design the building shell and interiors.

Give examples of how the building information for a specific location in the project needs to be filtered for different audiences and purposes?

Contractors will need to know measurements of all building walls, floors, ceilings, roofs, windows, doors, and stairs. This information will help physically build the building. Contractors will be less interested in information on interior design. On the other hand MEPs will require information on electric equipment, lighting fixtures, and plumping fixtures.

The residents / owner is likely more interested in the final design and renderings.

Should your design ideas always be conveyed through photorealistic renders?

  • Photorealistic renderings will help “sell” our project and should be created to convince the stake holders of the final project vision. While contractors may not need photorealistic renderings these designs can certainly help convey the vision.

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?

How can schedule views be used to assist with procurement and model-based estimating?
