The Week in Summary: Monsters, Superheroes & Burning Man, Oh My!

We made it to Friday again! Let's take a look back at some of the things we talked about this week.

There are monsters in the closet! We compared how the use of digital data models in building design is similar to the process Pixar Animation Studios used to animate Sully's fur in Monsters, Inc. The Lotte Super Tower in South Korea presented a special kind of challenge with its twisted exterior, much like the movement of Sully's hair presented a special kind of challenge for Pixar's animation team. Digital data models are being embraced by many industries to help solve complex computational tasks, and we're interested to see how this trend will reshape the way we think about design in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry.

The Value of Generative Design of Electrical Systems in Revit - Aubrey Frederick of iCAD Solutions

I want to relay to you how much of a game changer GenMEP by BuildingSP is for electrical subcontractors who practice building information modeling (BIM) and perform installation. I've been a consultant for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) firms for more than 15 years now, and the electrical trade is consistently at a disadvantage for BIM. GenMEP levels that playing field.
