ADOBE PDF FOR AEC
The plan suggests detached and semidetached
houses. The construction materials chosen are
local and traditional materials used in a modern architectural style. The urban plans also
contain playgrounds, garages, and parking
space, as well as roads and pedestrian access.
VB Architekten used MicroStation, TriForma,
and its own landscaping and texturing tools to
model those conditions and to create rendered images. MicroStation supports the concept of a maximum conformity between 2D
drawings and 3D models. There are no compatibility problems in data formats regarding
CAD data and 3D data.
The renderings were not only used to visualize
the development, but also to add life and a
pleasing atmosphere to the plan. The desired
effect was maximum realism, because the
images were to be presented to the client, satisfy local authorities, and attract potential buyers.
The new 3D PDF capability in MicroStation

files or see animations in the easy-to-use
