Goal: 3D Control and Planning

Status of Use Document: Early Draft

Phase(s): Construction


[ _ ] Decrease layout error by producing control directly from the 3D Construction Model
[ _ ] Increase communication between office and field personal
[ _ ] Decrease/Eliminate language barriers


3D Control and Planning utilizes a model to layout the building assemblies and produce lift drawings. Lift drawings are 2D/3D component drawings used by foremen during on site construction.
