I am undertaking a project to sketch some interior design alternatives for a large space. I want to be able to easily show different design alternatives. Each alternative may have different interior wall configurations, furniture, textures, fixtures, etc. Some elements (like bathrooms) will be common in all the alternatives. Eventually I need to be able to do a walk through of each alternative.
Once I have modeled the exterior (fixed) walls and common elements, what the is the best way to model the different alternative designs? Should all the features (groups/components) of an alternative just be on a layer to easily toggle visibility? I need to be sure geometry of the alternatives never interact, but layers do not prevent that. Or should I use a group to gather all the elements of an alternative together? Or is there another way?
Thanks for pros/cons of any approaches…
