BIM Advances – Annual Conference Summary

The Building Information Modeling (BIM) standardization progress has been the transversal theme of the Annual Conference on Infrastructures, held in Singapore in October. Although my Twitter account was practically hijacked with the #YII2017 hashtag in those days, here is a summary. The journey This time I had to travel from Nicaragua, a country where I


En más de una ocasión nos hemos preguntado, qué servicio de mail marketing elegir. No importa si se requiere para una lista de 500 suscriptores o un listado que supere los 5,000; elegir un buen proveedor para enviar correos masivos siempre será una decisión que se debe estudiar con cuidado, si consideramos los retos implícitos

BIM – the irreversible trend of CAD

bim levels

In our Geo-engineering context, is no longer novel the BIM (Building Information Modeling) term, which allows that different real life objects can be modeled, not only in its graphical representation but in their different life cycle stages. This means that a road, a bridge, a valve, a channel, a building, from its conception can have

Build a drone, my son’s science project

It doesn’t seem that this is the same creature that a few years ago surprised me with its great methane gas stove. Time passes faster than it seems. At least it can be seen in my gray hair and the evolution of his questions: Instead of asking for a new mobile phone game, he asked

The great year of Google Chrome

The case of Google Chrome is a striking example of what was said four years ago: “The browser that aims to be an OS” I remember in September 2008, I wrote about how Google launched its own browser, when the expectation for dethrone Internet Explorer would seem a madness as thinking now that the iOS

What brings back GEO5 in its version 15?

A few years ago I did a review of this software, which I think is the best for soil mechanics. This week has left us quite concerned the release of the GEO5 new version, which we believe will have an acceptance by users of this tool, which incidentally excels in the geo-engineering field without strong

5 Important things of the Be Inspired 2012

Those who follow on Twitter @geofumadas account may have noticed two full days devoted to the #BeIn2012 hashtag. To update concentrated content excess in just three days, here is a summary of the 5 things that protrude from the Be Inspired: 1. the most interesting project From 57 finalists’ projects, has caught my attention the

Bentley has announced about 60 finalists’ projects for the 2012 Be Inspired Awards, which will be held for the third time in Holland 5 to November 7 further comprising the symposium and annual conference. Unlike last year, we see a decrease in the Latin American projects which previously excelled with the theme of plants and

Linux has a new tool for native CAD

Unlike the geospatial area where Open Source applications outweigh the custodial, very little free software we have seen for CAD apart from the LibreCAD initiative which still has far to go. While Blender is a fairly robust tool, its orientation is to the animation and not to the CAD applied to engineering, Architecture and Construction.

Pointools, Bentley Descartes steroids

Descartes is the Bentley’s product equivalent (in part) to what Raster Design makes from AutoDesk. Usually the most utility that until now has been promoted is the images’ treatment, even though it has much more to offer; I remember just having spoken a couple of times about the creation of vector from flat scanned data
