I’d really appreciate some advice here. I’m working with someone on converting a vacated building into a community center.
Here’s a photo of the building:
I’m trying to help him do it as cheaply as possible, so I negotiated a pretty substantial price reduction w the architect in exchange for creating the floor plans myself.
He specifically requested the following:
• 1st Floor
- Reflected ceiling plan
- Building section
- Building elevations
I was planning on creating a 3D model of the building anyways, so I used a laser measuring tape and built a 3D model. It’s almost perfect in most places, but there are a couple spots that I feel like are up to a couple inches off.
As I was doing this, I came across the original blueprints. Wish I knew they existed before I started lol. I scanned them all using a pretty fancy scanner and uploaded them to google drive.
My issue now is that I need to create the items he requested in 2D dwg format and I can’t tell if I should be trying to do this from my existing 3D model via Layout or something, or should I hand trace/ scale the PDFs scratch?
Here’s a link to the SU file and the Blueprint PDFs.
I’ve spent like 30+ hours on this so far and I’m feeling pretty fatigued and am past my original deadline, so I’m hoping to figure out what the best strategy here would be.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
IDK if it matters, but I’ll be working w the model in TwinMotion for rendering. Here’s some of the stuff I’ve been doing w it so far
