You are quite right ,but why is the engineer supposed to solve all the trouble making the architects visions possible, with today's software you write down informations in a database and get a representation on the screen, ------- the difference with the method I promote is, that it generate the actural building frames not a drawing that the engineer must maneage to make in the real world.
This is why I focus on the structure rather than the architecture, the form language rather than the tradisional documentation as when you "draw" a wall from a standard lib. to show it on the screen and write it in the database that now all in all you got to buy 12 000 bricks ; this is very different than generating the actural N.C. codes to produce the actural frames, that with this system will assemble what you can se on the screen , ------- in _real_ 3D.
Thanks for the links, Il'l check them out.
