This is a roundtable to discuss the future of digital design collaboration tools between design professionals and clients. Tools like Revit software, 3ds Max software, and Navisworks software have been designed to facilitate collaboration with our peers, consultants, and internal teams. As projects increase in complexity and clients become more integrated into the design process, these current tools don't lend themselves well for enabling client interaction with Building Information Modeling (BIM) models and 3D visualization building models. Through experience and expertise we can generate a vision for how these tools could be augmented to help in this collaboration. Perhaps it's a new tool that helps bridge the gap and provides easy access to the complex 3D data that design professionals create. How do we address this need today? What challenges must be overcome and how can BIM models become more accessible to serve our clients? Through our discussion we'll help craft a vision for the next generation of digital collaboration tools.
- Discover existing collaboration of BIM and 3D visualization models between design professionals and clients
- Learn how to define needs and wants to facilitate ease of access to building models beyond current digital tools limitations
- Explore new methods for sharing Revit, 3ds Max, Navisworks, and other 3D models with clients
- Learn from peers about how to overcome existing limitations of BIM collaboration with clients and discuss new methods needed
