Web3D at AEC Hackathon
Don Brutzman from the Web3D Consortium attended the AEC Hackathon from 8-10 November on the campus of Facebook. He gave a quick survey of capabilities and opportunities for this community when content is exported to X3D. His slides are available on the X3D Graphics site.
Quote from keynote: "This is a $10 trillion industry, very slow to change... but when it changes, a LOT happens."
Note: AEC stands for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction. It is closely associated with Building Information Model (BIM).
