ARCH/inese, ARK/orean etc

It´s all about the money - so to say, the 'CO' part of AECO -
-
When CAD meant only 'AE' phase, we just needed an app or two (AutoCAD & MicroStation) to get by. But now that we are going fast to 'CO' part, I think it´s just a matter of time for some new BIM apps to appear to take some piece of cake. Or getting it all. -
-
Now the real BIM one is the one that starts with 'R'. Revit is young, it comes from 2002 -the other three come from 'ancient' times (they start with 'A', don´t they?). They have the experience, they have the wrinkles. Revit has got the main part of the market in just a decade; even more, it was only 3 or 4 years before that it became real. Now we can handle a full building in a portable computer. -
-
A unique app that gets all the AECO money? Now that IFC is mandatory? -
-
For me, it is just a question of time for an ARCH/inese or ARK/orean BIM app to appear. Complete, flexible, easy and fast. In full IFC and COBie compliancy. Perhaps too general, perhaps not easy to customize or not localized, maybe lacking any support. But enough solid to be used without a problem in most situations. -

Some time ago, not a lot, mobile phones were Siemens, Nokia, and Blackberry. Now we are looking for a Samsung S* or something similar, always designed and built at the East side. If we look for something cheaper, we have ZTE, Huawei or that blue Kingzone that looks like a perfect S*. They have full Android and whatever you look for. And they appeared when the money starts to be on that little machines we have in our pocket, side by side with our wallet. -
