BIM – the irreversible trend of CAD

In our Geo-engineering context, is no longer novel the BIM (Building Information Modeling) term, which allows that different real life objects can be modeled, not only in its graphical representation but in their different life cycle stages. This means that a road, a bridge, a valve, a channel, a building, from its conception can have […]

Build a drone, my son’s science project

It doesn’t seem that this is the same creature that a few years ago surprised me with its great methane gas stove. Time passes faster than it seems. At least it can be seen in my gray hair and the evolution of his questions: Instead of asking for a new mobile phone game, he asked […]

The great year of Google Chrome

The case of Google Chrome is a striking example of what was said four years ago: “The browser that aims to be an OS” I remember in September 2008, I wrote about how Google launched its own browser, when the expectation for dethrone Internet Explorer would seem a madness as thinking now that the iOS […]

What brings back GEO5 in its version 15?

A few years ago I did a review of this software, which I think is the best for soil mechanics. This week has left us quite concerned the release of the GEO5 new version, which we believe will have an acceptance by users of this tool, which incidentally excels in the geo-engineering field without strong […]

Understanding the BIM concept from the Bentley Systems perspective

In simplified words, BIM (Building Information Modeling) is the evolution of traditional concept called CAD (Computer Aided Design) and while there are entire books written about it after the term was popularized by Jerry Laiserin, for educational purposes we’ll try to be as simplistic look possible: Before, when designing a building, the architect after a […]

Linux has a new tool for native CAD

Unlike the geospatial area where Open Source applications outweigh the custodial, very little free software we have seen for CAD apart from the LibreCAD initiative which still has far to go. While Blender is a fairly robust tool, its orientation is to the animation and not to the CAD applied to engineering, Architecture and Construction. […]

Pointools, Bentley Descartes steroids

Descartes is the Bentley’s product equivalent (in part) to what Raster Design makes from AutoDesk. Usually the most utility that until now has been promoted is the images’ treatment, even though it has much more to offer; I remember just having spoken a couple of times about the creation of vector from flat scanned data […]
