This panel will feature the perspectives of three top innovators in the 3D content space, gathered to discuss the creation, optimization and utilization of standardized 3D assets across a wide range of applications. With the ever growing need to have 3D content flowing seamlessly across multiple experiences and platforms, it’s never been more important to establish workflow standards for homogeneous 3D assets. By standardizing assets, automation pipelines can be better utilized to convert and conform an individual asset for multiple use cases. Our panelists will discuss the latest advances in USD, Material-X, MDL, and glTF, that are helping pave the way for more versatile content, and explore the value of storing and managing metadata for 3D assets in a time when rich content is more important than ever.
As designers, we tend to focus on what is in front of us when it comes to developing our models and preparing construction drawings for delivery. If we take a step back and think about this more holistically, we can formulate ideas as to how this type of property set data can be leveraged in our daily workflows as well as later down the road. We are currently experiencing a major digital transformation where our Civil 3D models are becoming part of the actual digital deliverable. This will ultimately provide our design teams, clients, and contractors with meaningful data that can be leveraged for interdisciplinary coordination, construction, and asset management purposes. In this session, I'll share tips and tricks on how to leverage metadata and property set data throughout the design development phase to prepare our design models for future integrations into construction and asset management solutions.
