Real-Time is more than photo-realism. It's about effective communication. For one audience this means beautiful imagery. But another audience requires effective and even life-saving coordination. This session is a multi-discipline panel presenting innovative and real-world best practices for architects, engineers and builders using Enscape.

When it comes to real-time exploration, one size doesn't fit all. While the architect may want beautiful visualization of lighting, materials and graphics the engineer needs to satisfy health, safety and welfare issues in complex mechanical plant and process projects. At the same time the builder needs to discover coordination and fit / finish issues that waste time and money if only discovered in the field during construction. This is far more subtle than mere 'clash detection' and clash reporting. Many problems do not clash in many clashes are not problems. Exploring real-time environments at full-scale is also limiting on large and complex projects. This is because exploring the design at real-world scale can impose long travel times and distances which cause project meetings to go over time. Not to mention the inability to see large patterns and design issues. In these cases, exploring the virtual environment at scale is far more efficient. How do we quickly and easily satisfy the requirements of multiple stakeholders without over complicating workflow? These real world best practices will present elegant and time-saving solutions from an architect, engineer and builder that use Enscape to quickly and easily communicate design problems based on the differing needs of the audience reviewing the project.
