Just agreed to help a friend do some floor plans and though i’m competent/comfortable with Rhino for 3d modeling I have never had to make floor plans and documentation before. The floorplans and elevations will be for a reno, not for construction or anything major so it shouldn’t be too big a task.
I’m not a architect but i’m experienced with Rhino and 3Ds for modeling and don’t think I should have any problems with the actual drafting/modeling. If anything i’m concerned that I don’t know all the conventions and standards expected of architectural documents, but ill have examples to learn from.
***My real question is, should I be doing a series of individual 2D drawings, or should I model the whole house and take cross sections with cutting planes and make 2d ??? Ill need an elevation of all 4 sides and some overheads, perhaps just modeling it would be faster?
Anyhow would appreciate any advice from people who have experience with this.
Okay, thanks guys.
