Basically I’m doing the right thing…
For this project my engineers will probably only be doing 2D overlays over 2D extractions of my work Thats not a problem. I have a .dwg viewer and can load into SketchUp so I can look at but they should get before I send it. The consultants are just starting with Revit so I want to establish protocols for future more complicated projects. I would like them to be comfortable working in 3D with me when that’s appropriate. The majority of the architects they work with use either Revit or Archicad.
I’ve just gone out on my own again after leading the local arch team for a large multi dip international. The team would take my Sketchup files and do what they needed to without complaining to me. I refuse to use Revit (that companies arch and building design standard) as I believe it is (or was) the least intuitive CAD program available BUT the US side of the multi national won out over Archicad (not so bad but not SketchUp either).
Cheers and Thanks from the socially & culturally isolated NW of Tas.
