You say you dont know how it can cause issues when someone has to model it like its built, well the answer to that is simple: They ARENT all modeling it like its built, because:

    They dont know how its built. And so much energy is spent (these days) on learning tools and methods, that they arent learning the details and the construction.
    I never realized it was happening like that. That makes me even more appreciative of my first boss who went out of his way to make sure everybody knew how things went together. He even encouraged us to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity to gain some practical field experience. Turns out I bend more nails than drive them.

    My first three Shopping Malls, i had two great mentors in ARCHITECTURE. Dennis (principal in charge), and Neel (Project Manager). We didnt always get along, and things were tense on those jobs. But every time Dennis pulled a chair over with Trace Paper, i knew i was about to get smarter. And when he started drawing by hand on top of what i was modeling in Revit.... I knew i didnt know a damn thing about how buildings went together.

    Its been thirteen years since the first mall, but when i look around offices that i visit now, im sad. I dont see it happening.

    Some firms are bewildered when i explain to them that my *Revit Training* is going to be five entire days. Then i ask them how many people they have taught the firms Partition Types to, prior to me coming in for Revit Training. "Well we gave them a partition type sheet," is the response i typically get. Like, if you arent teaching them what the stuff means, how are you expecting them to do something meaningful with the information you give them?

    Its funny, to me, that people want to blame Millennials, as a generation (which i dont believe in, at all, because i hate generalizations). If i did, though, and i wanted to blame a generation: Id blame the ones that should be mentoring.
