Different processes and methods in 3D modelling, 3D visualisation and 2D documentation are introduced and explored to produce the outcomes of digital communication.   The advantages of 3D CAD over 2D applications is discussed and critiques.  The theory of Building Information Modelling (BIM) is introduced as a design documentation development tool, with its impact on the documentation process analysed in relationship to current industry practice.
