Constructing the future: A better way of teaching the trades

Pipetrades instructor Fred Bretzke and his colleagues believe the future of teaching construction is digital.

Incorporating 3D modeling and AR software into the learning experience enables students to produce to-scale miniature and virtual models of residential and commercial properties before they do the real thing.

With 3D modeling, classes can see how the plumbing for a whole house comes together using G.I. Joe-sized fittings made from the correct materials. Creating an AR holographic overlay using special glasses brings the model to life in an interactive way.
