Yes, -- there are a danger with 1977 technology, that it do not fit with relevant production, and that if architects think this as "the" technology, --- that they will be blind to se that there is not just "one" technology.
One danger is, that all the bad experiences with a 25 year old technology will be counted to cover "any" new technology, another danger is while architects seem to be blind about what early mesh entities acturly is , how can you then expect architects to experience technologies develobed, to compensate the foults of these early zero thickness mesh entities.
Still if architects think they will profit from stiffen a fish-net over a collection of geometrics, and still don't se, that all this bring is _no_ structure, _no_ floors and walls but _only_ surface, it is not the technology but the architects that shuld ask themself, if there shuld be no progress since 25 years of doubtfull zero mesh entities with no true connection to production ,asking an army of craftmen, where you othervise shuld think, that the more technology, the less manual work.

Sorry to point to this again, but where these mesh entities form the surfaces, technikes like 3D-H form the structure ; these are two very different technologies.

Reality ; ---- press a button, and the framework forming the structure are generated.
