Abstract: The process of drawing is changing exponentially. With the advent of computer aided drafting, commercial, industrial and government entities are calling for shared data and interoperability in the transfer of information from cradle to grave. Building Information Models are becoming the norm for the production of construction documents. This month’s presentation on 3D BIM will be presented by NASA Architect, Thomas Hinshaw. He will present on the transformation of drafting from 2D to 3D, the advent of OmniClass, and scanning tools now being used for documenting existing equipment. This presentation will give you a glimpse of emerging technologies and the future.
