You maby think that already there are computer programs that handle projecting as you would expect computers to perform. But realy most of cutting-edge high-tech, is just the old methods written into computer code. Check what architectural applications offer, and you will se part lib. and ready drawn blocks as when you put Lego-Blocks together. You will se fancy mesh structures like Bilbao ,but no one tell you, that 20 years ago primitive computer meshes, leaving only a thin shell forming the outlines of the structure with no floors or wall's , was what architects thought to represent the fantastic options with high-tech and architecture.
Leaving a hell of trouble for the poor engineers or in last end the skilled craftmen, who have nothing but a primitive mesh model ; the vorse thing to work from, when you know the real trouble with these entities.
Oposed the method used for this project, the 3D-Honeycomb method, where you place Solids in a CAD program, do the actural building by adding and subtracting Solids, untill walls and floors, stairway's and auxileries are there in a real model ------- then you press the button, and an assembly framework is generated. One that oposed the lame mesh structures will hold the measures , produce the structure acturly projected, but mainly as a framework with no hangers or knees , in brief you by a press of a button, get the intire structural framework, and it's not ugly.
--------- This is the first True direct link building method, where the architect don't just hand a few sketches to an engineer, but where the designer form and model the intire structure, and get each building element in full scale, to be cut in plain cheap sheet materials. Not 20 different steel profiles or fiddeling by skilled craftmen, but an accurat reliable method that work .
Difficult to explain though as it is so different from all others, that it is said to be 20 years ahead it's time, but by a press of a button, you produce a framework for any shape, with square rooms and curved outher walls, with floors and walls that grow as by magic when the assembly is put together, ------ and then it cost a third and is four times as strong and is already pointed to, by F.A.A. as a "very attractive building method for small aeroplanes".
Still I wonder why architects seem not to like the fantastic options, or maby it is an industrie that rather want to stay with the old methods and make progress into the old methods, just written into computer code, ---- that I can not ansver, but a 3D model can't cheat, only a 2D picture can and that's why I documented hundreds of different 3D models, created with this method.
