Building the Future - SmartGeometry 2012 Conference

Today’s guest blog comes from Lachmi Khemlani, Ph.D., founder and editor of AECbytes.

Towards the end of last month, I had the opportunity to attend this year's SmartGeometry conference, which was held at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, NY. The conference is typically focused on innovative architectural and structural design tools, technologies, and methods, and the theme of the conference this year was "Material Intensities." The conference is organized by the SmartGeometry Group, with Bentley Systems as the main sponsor since its GenerativeComponents software has been traditionally used by many of the leading firms that are part of the SmartGeometry Group.

This article provides an overview of the conference and compares it with the 2009 SmartGeometry conference that I last attended to see the direction in which the conference is heading, as well as analyze the relationship between academia and the industry.

  1. All I hear is "3D Printing". It's a great service for rapid prototyping but it's just not at the reasonable price point for everyone yet. The tech is getting more and more refined and more and more materials are available to 'print' with. I would say within 5 years it could be the standard but the old manufacturing methods still hold true.
