I am trying to answer some of the questions of my team regarding information take-off, specially all that is related to walls and façade.
Regarding inside walls and partitions it all comes down to the fidelity to the real construction, meaning using or not exaustively all the different composites needed.
To model all the different pieces needed sounds really slow and incovenient. It means asking the team to cut walls everywhere and change composite strucutre. The best I can imagine is to use the most commum composite and then cut and replace just by changing the composite on the drop down list, but i still find this not "draftsmen friendly".
Another question I often ask myself is if we should model wall ceramic tiles completely separeted.
Obviously this has implications on the quality of the model for a BIM collaboration.
I would appreciate your thoughts and also any resources you would recomend to study.
(on a side note: really unhappy to find out I missed the migration period of my account. It should have been done by defaut.)
The surface method would just require to cut the walls and paint the surfaces we want to measure. I suppose that's what you are mentioning?
At the end of the day I guess there is no real easy work-around but to model correctly, which is expected. Sometimes is just hard to push people, especially coming from 2D cad packages to manage all the different walls and their proper connections.
If there is any other resource about modeling techniques/workfloes, that you find exceptional please let me know. I would appreciate it.
