University Life Science Building
Vinci’s Virtual Construction Montage™ service is a great way to get convincing construction visualization efficiently and economically. Digital modeling is limited to the subject building; context is conveyed by an oblique aerial image. Vinci VCM™ works best when your team is sure of its message and when the project is simple enough to take in most important construction activity from one direction. The montage technique is used also in the production of Vinci Vignettes™. If you’re facing a more complex, multiphase project or need to show your very best effort, try Vinci’s Digital Worksite™ service.
Soon after the establishment of Vinci LLC in 2004, Vinci’s foremost client pursued a university life sciences building expansion. This steel frame structure was pondered during jury duty. It was built in AutoCad LT 2004, then ported to AtLastSoftware’s SketchUp 4, then a relatively unstable application. Output was generated from SketchUp 4, meticulously stacked and loaded onto a basis image. The oblique aerial image required some adjustments to “paint out” conditions that wouldn’t exist at the time of construction. Foreground objects were masked. Nearly twice the time spent amending and grooming the Photoshop output was spent on defining the digital model. This project consisted merely of this general 4d overview, and was produced with 2¾ levels of work. See this 2010 example for an example of a similar but more current Vinci Digital Worksite™ project.
