Three models, one file...

Postby tomsdesk » Mon Nov 26, 2007 2:25 pm

Hey All,

Posting this in the Newbie Forum 'cause in many ways "I are one" but mainly because, though this is a bright new light bulb for me, I'm sure this is old hat to most of the old pros.

This is the second bank model I've done (you know economy is bad for the middle class when the banks start spending money :`) with a major fascade redo plus a couple of addition concepts. It finally dawned on me to do it all in the same file.

I set up all the "view" pages sans layers changes, and added three (I'm only posting two of them) "concept" pages changing only the layers. This way at any view the concept alternates can be flipped thru and compaired, or a single concept can be taken thru the views...all without changing files.

Anybody share additional presentation enhancements along these lines?

Anyway, the presentation to the bank board is today...fingers crossed!
Best, Tom.

I've done it with Roman ruins (they might pay less than banks though): First there was the ruin and second there was the reconstruction. Though I left the ruin there and just "added" the reconstruction "on top" so that it was clear what goes where.

Also one time I did this with two alternat(iv)e reconstructions on the same ruins. The very thing you should remember in these presentations not to update (thus uncheck) camera position.
