AEC CAD data exchange / GDL


Sean Flaherty and Robert Anderson from NNA talk about AEC CAD data exchange at:http://www.cadalyst.com/features/1201aecinterop/nemet.htm


Concentrating on two-way and round-trip translation of the entire drawing should not be the main focus. Although this goal may be an intermediate target, it may never reach the levels that it promises. I liken it to asking someone to translate a poem to another language and make sure it still rhymes. Instead, the focus should be on smaller, more achievable goals?for example, the exchange of prebuilt objects from building component manufacturers.

Then, how about GDL? Are there any plans of including GDL support?(GDL objects now can be shown and developed directly in a web browser: http://www.GDLalliance.com/Tools/3nf.html)

Excellent Idea!

With Archicad and Autocad using GDL Objects and pushing them as new industry standard Vectorworks would need to support GDL sooner or later.

Join them, if you cant beat them. (by making Vectorscript an industry standard )
