But when you have the choice, know that this is the options ,know what this will mean in reduction of cost and proberly the most important, that you are offered a new form language promising much more flexibility as with just one material and a method you acturly can trust much better than the ones in use, --- it will be a temptation.
Now if you just know how much it mean, when somone just say, that proberly in the future this sill be one of the methods you will expect being an alternative in many applications, you proberly se why I find it worth continuing to point to the multible possible applications, where the choice of a material that form in an assembly framework is evident. But the more I get to know about the tradisional methods and their applications, the more disapointed I get about these. As I told I have a background with crafts and hands on experience, and I am frightened how conservatism maneage to cut out true progress even Gaudi's craftmen proberly didn't need any math. to figure out how much brickwork could form the decor before things got to heavy, and any student can start 3Ds to "se" what will happen under cirtain condisions or a given weight pr. cubic ; these tools are there for anyone who can start a computer and who know how to add a script.
Anyway thank's for the nice words, I se that it do pay off to be ignorant and that you se "where" orr limitations are, still with the graphics, no framework are yet generated as first there must be an idear to it, and often you need more than one idear to form a vision.
