Can somebody check my math, I did this on a break. Thanks!
I have been busy drawing up a concrete building in Sketchup and detailing some of the beams. I think it would do a designer good to actually draw the steel reinforcement, they designed, to scale. Then you could see how things actually fit together.
I remember checking a senior engineer’s design and seeing that steel often occupied the same space. The general feeling was, “oh they will kick into place in the field and make it work”. Not my idea of a good design assumption. 3D is coming and it can be useful for conflict resolution and what-if scenarios.
Take a look, does the steel fit? (not my design.)
I embed these videos using youtube’s code but I cannot get it to default to 720p. Anybody out there no how to do this?
Go to YouTube for higher quality, sigh
I received an email from a instructor at a Canadian university, saying he is going to use my book (as recommended reading) in his economics course!
Thanks, made my day!
