How to define LOD?

We recently had a meeting in which everybody agreed that LOD 300 is the Design Model with Precise Geometry.

But that was the only agreement:)

I am not even talking about Level of Detail. Engineers from the same organization could not agree on if certain element is counted as architectural or structural.

Sounds funny but everybody has their point of view and they all makes sense to them.

In these situations, a generic LOD definition is the invitation for trouble. Every single person in the room will have a different expectation from the model.

What is the solution?

Make an inclusion list!

You can use AIA E202 document.



AIA E202


  • List the elements that will be modeled.
  • Define to what detail it will be modeled.

Sometimes, we even simplify it.

Element name and remark describing the data assigned to it.

It will save you from a lot of problems in the future.

Life is this simple!

Enjoy your day!
