The use of Architectural Desktop allowed the end user to see the difference between a basement jail and a second floor massing variation as shown here.

Typical Residenc 3D view (developed).

The use of Architectural Desktop also allowed the designers to make decisions about adding a front porch for a market type setting along the urban street. This addition while not completely done on the fly is a great visual addition to schematic design over standard lines archs and circles.
