11.1 What are Design Options

11.1.1 Design Options

Design options provide a way to develop alternative designs in a project, whether to adapt to changes in project scope, to review other designs, or to show different options to a client.

11.1.2 Option Concept
11.1.2.1 Master Project for Options
  • Commercial
  • Shell and Core
11.1.2.2 Levels
  • Lobbies
  • Floor layout
  • Rentable Area Layouts
11.1.3 Residential / Track Homes
11.1.3.1 Overarching
  • Floor Plan Layouts
  • bed 1 bath
  • bed 1 ½ bath
11.1.3.2 Specific
  • Garages
11.1.3.3 Level Layouts
  • Kitchen Design
  • Bathroom Layouts
11.1.4 Views / Schedules

Under the VG and VP dialogs you can select the option that is seen in the view.

Oh, and this is also true for Schedules!

11.1.5 The key points here
  • Always leave your Sheet Views to “Automatic”
  • Automatic will display whichever option is “Primary”
  • Don’t be confused – if a Option is “Primary” and you set that Option to be displayed in a view, that view will always display the Option you selected!
  • Always Name your Views appropriately
11.1.6 Naming Convention - Why

11.2 Design Options

Naming Convention is important; however, not critical like most things having to with CAD/BIM. Design Options are stored and seen only in projects. There is just one dialog box that you use to create/edit Design Options. Naming becomes an issue when “Pushing” Objects to specific Design Options. Naming is also seen in the VP & VG dialog boxes.

11.2.1 Views and Schedules

Any View that is Option “Specific” should be named with that in mind. Think about, your view names will only matter when they are printed on sheet. The only views on a CD Set will be the views set to primary.

11.3 During PD/ DD Phase

  • where you are still deciding what option to go with….
  • You will create Multiple Views, one for each option or combination of option
  • You will print Multiple Options on one sheet for side by side comparison
  • Your view name will then have the specific option information on the sheet

11.4 Forward thinking

Many Companies already use their first project as their template for future projects. Same with Design Options, once you have Design Options, Keep them!

  • Never, Never, Never “Accept Primary”
  • Unless you are “Archiving” or sending Project out
  • You cannot “Transfer Design Options”
11.4.1 Archiving
11.4.1.1 File Save As – “reason for archive”
  • Save project under sub folder
  • Accept all Primary Options
  • Purge all unused Data
  • = no confusion

11.5 Project work

  • Always work in the Project with all design options available.
  • Our clients Never change their minds right!
  • Easier to clean out data at the archive than to recreate tomorrow
