3D CAD & Training
In 2015 PCC Event Services was contracted by the Arts Centre Melbourne, Victorias most iconic performance space to upgrade the technical drawings of its main theatres, Hamer Hall, State Theatre and Playhouse Theatre. Though existing digital drafts existed for some of these venues the arts centre wanted to bring them up to date with the latest technology into full 3D drawings.
Over several months PCC worked tirelessly to update and in many cases re-draw components into 3D to give the Arts Centre the most realistic digital representation of their primary performance spaces. Using the latest features of Vectorworks PCC was able to enhance the ability of the drawings to assist both creative and technical staff valuable information on how performances look from any seat in the house.
The re-vamping of these old drawings with the inclusion of textures allows for the rendering of beautiful 3D images that promote the Arts Centre Melbourne as a venue a head of the rest giving an edge that helps attract interest from designers and creatives on a national and international level.
To add to the delivery of the advanced drafting PCC has also delivered a specialised training course to the Arts Centre staff which teaches them how to maximise the power of their 3D documents and develop skills that allow the drawings to increase efficiency and effectiveness of their day to day tasks.
It was a great privilege to be approached by Arts Centre Melbourne and as an icon of our home city PCC was thrilled to be involved in the project.
