The rapid advancement of technology has revolutionized the way we live and work, and the built environment is no exception. (Learn more about the smart building tech.)
The video podcast show, Let’s Talk Cabling!, recently invited an ESD expert to discuss the benefits of 3D modeling for designing cable installation projects.
ESD Senior Information & Communications Technology Consultant Mike Edgar says Autodesk Revit software has steadily grown in popularity over the past ten years as a tool to plan network cable installations more precisely. Edgar says the building information modeling (BIM) software makes changes to design plans fast and easy (“Revit” got its name from a contraction of the phrase “revise-instantly”). During his interview with host Chuck Bowser, Edgar said the three-dimensional visualization makes it easier to avoid potential conflicts with input from other designers.

This article was subsequently posted by leading industry publication Consulting-Specifying Engineer (CSE) magazine.
Mike Edgar brings over 20 years of experience as an information and communications technology consultant to his role at ESD and its mission to improve society through the built environment.
