It's one thing to draw a model of a building and is another to have a model ready for 2d documentation and quantity estimating. For the last 8 years I've been creating a plugin that allows automation of scenes set up with styles for Layout and at the same time producing a full bill if materials. We built a US imperial version and a metric version. You can create your own wall types and roof types and it's easy to use and parametric. If you'd like to find out more go to www.plusspec.com
Design and construction had never been so intuitive. Id like to hear your thoughts
Revit technology conference in Australia asked me to present and it was very well received
I struggled with Revit, I've not tried Archicad yet designing with parametric modeling programs was very restrictive. 8 years ago i employed 3 developers to create a parametric plugin for sketchup that allowed me 2 design whilst doing the structural grunt work behind the scenes. No more sticky geometry. It's made a huge difference to the quality of work and the amount of calls from trades people asking me to explain design intent or constructability issues.
More work in less time with less questions has allowed me to spend more time refining designs and become better at what i do.. I now employ 5 full time designers and still can't keep up.
Anyone else done anything similar?
