using two-dimensional drawings, there are many conventions on how plans, sections and elevations are interpreted. Your project revolves around translating the 2D drawing to 3D construction using studs, insulation and other materials. There can be misinterpretations of these drawings, which gives rise to
confusion about how building elements go together. Especially if the drawings show something that the contractor might not be familiar with. Or if the contractor is busy and hasn’t had the time to really look at certain parts of the drawings, critical elements of the details can be overlooked. A designer

associated with it.Your drawing set is essentially extracted from the model by viewing it from different vantage points (a plan view, section or elevation). The real power is evidenced when you make changes. For example, when you move a window in the model, any of the drawing sheets (views) you’ve created
automatically. So too will the plans and sections, which can reduce your coordination and drawing time significantly. There’s a fundamental difference between modeling the building and creating static 2D drawings to represent it.
By contrast, with BIM, you’re drawing the actual walls, roofs, columns and other building components that contribute to the creation of a model and a true three-dimensional representation
