Level of Detail and Model Progression Specification
Three-dimensional modeling is becoming more common in today’s construction processes. While models are easy to create, the question which should be asked is; what is the 3D model good for? Is it just a pretty picture or can it actually be fabricated and constructed? Level of Detail (LOD) is what we will explore for this article and how it has helped answer these questions.
Have you noticed in the AEC industry that a lot of interest has been generated around laser scanning? The reason for this is that scanning provides a fast and accurate way to collect large amounts of measurement data to be used in both the design and construction process.
