Viewing design visuals (2)

Having looked at collaboration for viewing marketing collateral, etc, I have just read a fascinating AECbyte by Lachmi Khemlani. In Exploring Second Life and its Potential in Real Life AEC, she describes her (or her avatar’s) first steps into Second Life – the online virtual reality “alternate” world. She describes how one US architectural firm, …

Collaborative BIM – wow! or what?!

After my ‘extranet’ predictions post earlier this week, I had a think about  Asite‘s Collaborative BIM product, and whether the industry is yet ready for such a thing. Regular readers may recall (see my 10 October 2006 post) that Asite first announced its ‘forthcoming’ collaborative BIM product at a London conference on 4 October. Just over a fortnight …

‘Extranet Evolution’ 2007 predictions

Autodesk University – little collaboration buzz

Amid the stream of blog articles discussing Autodesk University 2006, there has been very little about construction collaboration technologies. I had hoped that this major US event, which attracted 7,500 people this year, might have been the platform for Autodesk to make some major announcement, perhaps regarding its Constructware product (following the acquisition earlier this …

BIM, BIMs or SBIM?

After last week’s Construction Computing Show (see previous post), I have finally got round to reading the show edition of Construction Computing magazine (November/December 2006), which incorporates CAD User. In the latter, there is an article (not yet on the CAD User website) from Mervyn Richards, which I think gives a good, if ultimately somewhat …

Asite’s “major new developments”

Asite’s website has revealed the “major new development” announced at last week’s half-day conference (see previous post). It was two ‘new’ products: Asite Workspace and Asite Building Information Model (BIM). Asite Workspace is described in Asite’s press release as: “an entry level collaboration tool, addressing the concerns of the industry highlighted by the 2006 NCCTP …
