BrisBIM End of Year Gathering Wrap-up

The BrisBIM End of Year Gathering took place last week at QUT’s ‘The Cube’ – a very fitting location that features one of the world’s largest digital interactive learning and display spaces – part science lab, part digital engagement.

Mitchell Brandtman’s 5D team went along and joined a host of 12 presenters talking for only 2 minutes about projects they had successfully completed. Perhaps “SpeedBIM” should have been theme of the evening?

Besides from the great results achieved on projects all around Australia a highlight came from Tom de Plater of Peddle Thorp Architects who talked about Autodesk’s ‘123D Catch’ software which is a free App that allows you to generate models from pictures using your phone or tablet.

If you’re wondering what’s going on in the pictures below that’s Associate & 5D Quantity Surveyor Matt Hemming checking this new software out – on himself!

Now to test it on something with cleaner geometry!

We hope to see you at the next BrisBIM event on the 19th Feb 2014 – Put that date in your diary. See you there!
