Site plans

We believe that if there is any drawing type that 3D artists struggle with understanding more than any other, it would have to be the site drawing.

This is primarily because site drawings are convoluted with far more information than a 3D artist would ever care to see or know about and while the information is important and necessary to the contractor building the project, the majority of information found on most site plans only makes understanding the linework more difficult.

Architectural drawings reiterate a great deal of information presented by the subcontractors. In the case of a site drawing, architects will usually always include their own watered down version of a site plan that contains a fraction of information provided by civil engineer who creates the master site plan. The primary reason for this is so that the building department and the other subcontractors involved in the project can see and understand the overall site concept without needing a degree in civil engineering. If an architect presented the more convoluted site plan to the building department, some of the members deciding whether or not to approve the project might have no clue as to what they were looking at. So the architect's job is to take the civil engineer's drawing and modify important features that are critical for winning approval by the building department and critical to helping the other subcontractors to design their respective areas of the project.

Civil engineers use a different scale than architects and because of this, the drawings that you receive from an architect may need to be scaled properly before they can be superimposed with the drawings used to create the buildings in your project. Civil engineers use decimal units with 1 unit equally 1 foot. Architects, on the other hand, use architectural units with 1 unit equally 1 inch.
