Not a floor plan, but I have done foundation setout plans this way, additional to the traditionally dimensioned foundation plan.
Dimensioned this way as shown is very good for the builder setting out profiles on site, as he doesn't have to add up dimensions as he goes along the profile.
it looks good from the presentation perspective but doesn't give full information for site guys.
They need more dimension to avoid various calcuations.
Thanks parveen, I'm thinking about something like this as
a new approach for me building a pre-construction model.
Once the model goes to the construction drafters and
engineers they change the dimension styles and datums
anyway. There are so many different approaches to
beginning a model. Like using reference planes, grids,
two walls, lock everything, lock nothing, walls and floors
by face etc.etc.
I would like to know about some of the different approaches
others use to start a model. Whether they have an AutoCAD
floorplan to start from or not.
since the industry has not adopted the full life cycle of BIM and most of the designers start with AutoCAD first.
one can say that the CAD drawings are available to start revit modeling process.
