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?

  • Which stakeholders require 2D views, and why?

Foreman, Construction personnel who are on site, PM's who are on site. (at least currently) These stakeholders often use 2D views because on-site, computers or devices aren't readily available to quickly look over plan views. Furthermore, there is still a learning curve that needs to be overcome for people in the industry regarding familiarity with 3-d modeling tools.

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?

  • How does the level of detail in the rendering and its presentation affect the perception of stakeholders reviewing your design?

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?

It would be an effective tool in the process of trying to reduce costs. When having to make those decisions, with the model, a group could easily remove a number of particular components and see directly how design could be affected.
