BIM: Is this a reality or still a vision?

What do you think?
Is this happening (not saying mainstream) now or still a vision?

My opinion is this is happening NOW! and looking forward to see something along this line at AU2013 next week.


  1. I agree with you - to a point.

    Two things, the 3D Geometry needn't be separated from the data in your cloud. We can manage perfectly large GIS databases which are simultaneously data and geometry. The distinction is one that continues to be made between the 3D of BIM and the data which for some reinforces the notion BIM is a bolt-on to traditional process. I know you don't think that but just sayin'.

    Secondly, seeing as you have copyrighted the diagram will it become as widely (mis)used as the wedge or the resourcing graphs? And can we get it on a T-Shirt?

    Enjoy AU.

  2. Thanks Jonathon for your comments.

    I hope the diagram ends up being used as widely as the wedge! :-)

    Feel free to print it on a T-shirt as long as you keep copyright info as it appears above. And, I would be even happier if you send me one of those T-shirts! :-)
