Many years ago when I was an intern at Gensler in Houston, one of my jobs was transferring redlines on shop drawings. The lead architect marked up the original and then I made 5 copies by hand.
Some shop drawings came across my desk today and I had a thought. At SALA, I’ve set up pen #20 to always print red (more on that later). What if I dropped a PDF of the shop drawings into a blank layout and then marked up the drawings with pen #20. I’d have a digital original and could easily e-mail the mark ups. I could print as many copies as necessary and all my notes would be legible. I could use search functions within ArchiCAD and start to merge the shop drawings into the BIM workflow. Not the endgame I’m looking for, but an incremental step on the Endless Path of Improvement.
