Mark Wilson Talks

Transitioning to 3D CAD – Systems & Solutions

Mark Wilson, QARC Partner, gave a talk to a Lean-in session for the Australian Institute of Architects.  As an Architect with 40 years experience he shared his 30 year journey transitioning from the drawing board to full 3D Building Information Modelling. He discusses the potential difficulties, and looks at the opportunities and the importance of BIM systems in the future.

Watch it and see if you can transition to full 3D BIM too, by using the power of QARC4Revit in your practice.  There is a fascinating Q+A at the end.

Transitioning to 3D CAD – Practical Demonstration

Mark Wilson, Peter Latemore & Kaylene Richardson, gave a live presentation of how good BIM systems work in practice for the Australian Institute of Architects.  There are lots of Q+A at the end.

This was a follow-up to Mark Wilson’s sharing his transitioning from the drawing board to 3D Building Information Modelling. Many of the attendees wanted to see a live demonstration. This live session demonstrates how to quickly model and document using QARC systems: plug-in for Revit; 350 sheets template; 11,000 families; on sheet instructions. Every stage of the design and documentation process is demonstrated: Pre-Design; Sketch Design; Developed Design; Working Drawings.
