"angry primary school director"
I'm not sure that the tone of angry primary school director is suitable for this forum. Explaining me that I'm non mature ArchiCAD user... Sorry, man, I'm using ArchiCAD since version 5, and probably know this system better then you.
This is typical explanation about "responsibility" of engineers and "law" of people, who don't really have a clue what is BIM or Virtual Building and in which direction progress in this field is moving. The reason why I started to share my thoughts on ArchiTalk (that I know by ages, by the way) - is to share my experience and make a message that ArchiCAD today is incomplete, when, by another hand it has strong potential to take bigger market.
And also pretty brilliant.
I'm not going to touch that one, especially since we've been told to keep personal attacks out of this, but I will confess that that did make me laugh.
Your gave your opinion on various things, I gave my own opinions in response back, as well in general about the topic at hand and I stand by everything I said since I didn't personally attack you.
I don't believe architects should be delving in areas of construction that are not their remit as designers of the project. That's an opinion and a belief that's borne of my own personal experience as well as the general sense of how it works in the areas and regions I've worked in. I did concede that it could be different where you come from or where other people come from.
Just visit the thread asking for user feedback on the Structural Analysis model in version 24 if you don't know what I'm referring to. Also,...anyone remember VICO Constructor suite? Yes, it wasn't strictly Graphisoft behind that, but it should show just about how well it would go if you tried converting ArchiCAD into something it's not, with the intention of using it in a field and area, where they don't traditionally work this way, and are slow to adapt to new ways of working.
I appreciate what they are trying to do and what sort of customers they're trying to appeal to with this (possible) 'Swiss Army Knife' approach, but if that comes at the cost of everyone else's needs and addressing long-standing core issues in ArchiCAD, then it's a pursuit not worth taking.
If you can't handle people giving their opinions on your own opinions, or pushing back on the things you're putting forth without getting personal, then perhaps that's something you need to look at and consider for yourself.
But I am keeping, 'Angry Primary School Director'
as a possible potential future garage-band (or even better,...Solo act, for when I break away to do my own thing) name.
I love it!
(it's a bit of a mouthful though. We might need to workshop it a bit more. Maybe some focus groups and some market research too with customer feedback)
Back on course and on topic :-
Roadmap very good.
ArchiCAD for Architects, please!!
