September News!

Ethan - born 27/9/11

It has certainly been a busy week here.  Last Tuesday (27th September) saw the arrival of the newest member of the "team".

While it's early days, I'm sure that our new "Junior Executive" will have a great deal of influence on everything that happens here!

Completed Reports
Work-wise, things are remaining steady.  September included three new volumetric analysis projects, with another one currently ongoing, as well as a number of CAD projects.  Our involvement in the avoidance and identification of buried public utilities continues to be a key business area, and we have also submitted tenders to provide CAD services for windfarm projects.

BIM continues to be a key area of interest here too.  Revit has been getting well explored, with a recent proposed project (domestic building conversion) being modelled in Revit, and video fly through simulation created.

Google "badges" awarded

In addition to this, we now have ten building models uploaded to Google's 3D Warehouse, and six buildings modelled in 3D and accepted into Google Earth and included in the publicly accessible buildings view.

Sticking with 3D models, the latest thing we've been trying out is Photofly... the first test project is now complete and is uploaded to YouTube - take a look here.  This was created by using a series of normal photographs, taken of a vase of roses, to produce the 3D version and video.

2011 certainly has been a big year for us so far... looking forward to finding out what's next!
