I think this is potentially very important. Autodesk Labs just announced Project Spark – a simplified 3D BIM solution intended for light commercial and residential projects. In the announcement they make comparisons to AutoCAD LT and Inventor LT – I guess Revit LT is too old school.
The announcement says, “Architects who work in small firms can create designs with real-world architectural objects, produce more reliable, coordinated documentation faster, and improve collaboration with consultants who use Revit or AutoCAD-based products”. Sounds great, but can it support point clouds?
I am pleased to see that it is 3D – I suppose that was not really even a question. Please let me know what you think.
