RE: Steel Detailing Charges

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

:Bill,
:The solid modeling software is not CADD as known in the design world.
:Although they can produce similar (paper) products and may use similar
:techniques, they are not the same.  One would have a much easier time
:detailing in CADD than producing design drawings with a detailing
:package.

:My personal struggle with these issues has led me to attempt to change
:the way we produce shop drawings.  To date, the existing inertia has
:been too great to overcome, but some ground has been made.
