Problem is rather the multible uses, the various technologies the ider support, --------- by pointing to a true 3D solid model carrying walls and floors or frames to hold auxileries ,and as bt magic generate an accurate assembly framework. Try it with instant prototyping or make the CAD drawing steer the N.C. router ,everything work ; but the architects drawing will now not carry dimensions .
What today is seen as top techbilogy, is very often just the old methods written into computer code, and architects rather draw on a flat sheet, than in 3D. Even the 3D will route the manufactoring and offer brand new tools, fact even with very prestigous structures is, that when CAD is used, it is used in a reverse-engineering process asking ten fold the trouble, while sticking to the methods architects used _before_ the computer ---------- and when the computer was there, the claim was not somthing new and refreshing but the old methods, written into code on as flat a screen as the piece of paper.
True direct link production can not depand on reverse-engineering, but with 20 years of experience about architects, I must say that arts is about having skilled craftmen ; is that high-tech ?
