    The Future of BIM?

    I was just pondering a software that could automatically generate notated details based on wall, roof, floor, and ceiling elements and then place them on sheets. Maybe the live detail has the ability to explode so you can clearly see vapor and weather barriers along with sealant, as well. Do you suppose Revit is heading that direction?

    I've often imagined a future where the BIM Draftsman can just focus on the Model and the Information, and then the trades apply their own "lenses" to that model and run an auto-tag/auto-dimension as needed according to how they wish to interpret it. The key there however, would be the 100% adoption by all parties engaging with the BIM to interface with and extract from in a similar manor. One can dream.

    While tech is constantly evolving and people are pushing...we are 17 years into Revit and people still can't agree that "these" door families work for "everyone". Maybe it's my age, maybe it's 17 years of pushing uphill... Maybe it's the notion that "we" all work as a coherent industry with mutual goals and expectations. One look around me tells me that's not real...

    Woof, I need more coffee...that was dark.

    Not dark at all Steve.. Unfortunately its the truth. I work as a BIM co-ordinator for a subtrade, and it is very frustrating when you know that the only way forward is together but trades thing of themselves as individual entities unfortunately. Like the entirety of the world. Until we can find a way to work together and collaborate and co-ordinate correctly, we are only as strong as the weakest link.. or the ones most unwilling to change.

    Autodesk, can you give us a hint of what's to come in the next 17 years?

    In 2000 Revit showed up on their doorstep asking for their AutoCAD and ADT users... and in response they bought Revit. I'm not convinced they know...

    As technological capabilities advance exponentially, the life span of design tools and processes WILL decrease.

    Pencil/Paper ≈ 200 years
    CAD ≈ 50 years
    BIM ≈ 20 years
    VR/AR ≈ 5 years
    Generative Design and Automation
    ≈ 3 years
    Robotics/A.I. ???

    The push will come from automation in construction. No more sheets and ****. You only prepare model and send it over internet to contractors.

    A 3d printer mounted on a 40' flat pulls up to a job site and starts printing the building. It is already being developed.
