    Abstract

    Collaboration in architectural design can be enhanced by using a virtual environment (VE). The visual aspects in a VE facilitates shared understanding across interdisciplinary groups, further enhanced 3D models, provide visualization support, and allows for the generation of alternative designs. The design team can collaboratively design, visualize, review, redesign and solve design problems and errors that may arise before actual construction commences on site. A Collaborative Design Tool for a Virtual Environment (CDT-VE) enhances the collaborative ability for designers. Designers can work on the same design within the same space, without interfering with one another, in a higher level of interaction. This paper describes the development process of a CDT-VE. The CDT-VE uses the Torque 3D Game Engine (TGE).
