50-60% is making sheets

Recommended Posts

I'm getting one of those feelings that 50-60% of the time for a project is making sheets...


Also seeing this big time in the mechanical CAD world...easy to make a model but then to break it all out into part/assembly drawings then combining into a pdf booklet complete with bookmarks is a big operation...


If I could just export a model (Architectural or Mechanical) then have everyone build off that then...wow! That would be lightning fast...

Also, the sheets (stored on Bluebeam Revu) are always outdated by a few weeks...so when we have a meeting I'm showing the model as everyone wants the latest information...Updating all these sheets every week generates a fair amount of time...

Brownian motion


"the erratic random movement of microscopic particles in a fluid, as a result of continuous bombardment from molecules of the surrounding medium."


As we add more and more detail to the model (for BOMs, Energy audits, etc) then any updates to the "microscopic particles" causes the "surface" (sheets) to always be vibrating with new data (updates)
