Best practices (technical) for room modelling from floor plan?

Hi Everyone,
I’m putting together my MFA art exhibition at University, and would like to build a model of the venue to visualize various possible layouts / arrangements of artworks.

If anyone has any tips on the best practices, or things they’ve learned from experience I’d love to hear them.

  • better to model in another program and important geometry? Better to model right in the engine?

  • important to set scale from start?

It’s going to be a big job, so I’d like to invest in the best practices early on.


p.s. only have access to low resolution floor plan (see attached)
