    thru this, but to be honest, my end product was never the result of an LOD requirement, it's the result of the needs of my customer. Frankly, I never thought much about LOD levels. It's just "this is what's required to give my customer what they need to order, fabricate, and install this projects products". I think my point was, that most people who shove LOD levels down subcontractor's throats don't know WTF they are requesting or why. And, I don't care anymore, I'm retired

    Of course, but what if your client does not use your model for the information he needs to order stuff? Going back to the door with the hinges, what if he just counts the doors on the PDF and orders the hinges according to that count, without ever getting info from the model, should you still add the number of hinges to the door? That's shy I want to sit down and talk to them to see what they need. If for some reason they want the number of hinges to be added to the door at LOD 300, let me know and I can do that, but not because the LOD says so, but because the clients NEEDS that info in an early stage.

    And I must say that I never have gone over LOD 300, so the thing with the hinges is never an issue for me, but it is an easy to understand example
