Hire the guy from OzCad

Question

Hire the guy from OzCad

I've been testing the WinDoor demo from OzCad and this guy has a gift of making easy to use user interface. Although the BIM features of VW are easier than most programs, this guys manages to take things to a whole new level. I doubt anybody would choose to use the built in window or door tools after trying this plug-in. Again, I'm not bashing VW in any way, just praising the WinDoor plug-in.

So my adwise to Nemetschek is: Hire the guy from OzCad, buy his WinDoor plug-in and integrate it into VW and then have him direct a team of programmers to improve all the parametric tools such as the stair tool, roof tool, wall tool and so on.

everyone should have the windoor object, nna should get it instead of investing any my resources into their own door or window object

the Australian title block is way cool, it makes a document transmittal form as well...

Careful, Julian may just take up the stair challenge. He also brought us the Animationworks tools.

Bring him on!

Amen to this!!!!

Simple, uncomplicated, speedy, precise. Aren't these wonderful words?

NNA, please take note!

I think it's evident that something is wrong with the NNA business model when a single guy produces better core tools than the mothership.

(When I used WinDoor I did find the interface a little clunky; I'd like to see it become a bit more graphically streamlined. Or maybe it already has? Been a while since I used it.)

Is this purchasable Jonathan? Or are we able to take a look at it somewhere?

Hire the guy from OzCad.....

... or buy his plug-in and integrate it into the next release...

The window/door tools should be much more flexible.

Have we mentioned the Heliodon tool!?

Sorry to say it to those outside the Great South Land, but from what I can tell Vectorworks Architect Australia and New Zealand is the best version on the planet, due to all of the great plug-ins Julian and his family have created!

Also if I email him tech questions he gets back to me within a day without fail. I have no idea where he gets the time to program?!

Julian Carr - VW guru and all round good guy!

I think this shows that it's not only about having big resources but rather making the right decisions. It seems people with a real talent for programming can do incredible things. Look what julian carr has done on his own. Then look at how crappy Autocad is with hundreds of programmers and huge funds. Vectorworks is miles better than Autocad, but I truly think Julian Carr could make it shine if they put him in charge.

Been looking at the other local austalian stuff he has, and he is actually making plug-ins that are useful for making modern international architecture. (which Nemetschek is not really focusing on)
