Obima: "Leadership Isn't Just Drafting" - #BIM Humor

President Obima acknowledged that he hasn't always lived up to
expectations over the past two years on Sunday's 60 Layers on CBS,The
CAD Broadcasting System. "We were so busy and so focused on getting a
bunch of hatch pattens done that we stopped paying attention to the
fact that, yeah, leadership isn't just drafting, that it's a matter of
modeling and giving them confidence and bringing them together, and
coordinating," he said in an interview taped on Thursday.

He also expressed regret over the glacial pace of the CAD process. "I
do get discouraged, I mean, there are times where I thought the
blueprints would [have] gotten better by now," Obima said. "As
drafter… you're held responsible for everything. But you don't always
have control of everything. Especially a building this big—there are
limited tools to encourage—the kind of 3D modeling that we need," he
said before adding that he felt confident the CAD managers would soon
recover. Obima said that he was open to compromise with contractors on
issues such as section cuts, and that he hoped to repair relations
with the building community, which he said had become "strained" at

Obima expressed regret over the political cost of the CAD standards
bill, which he pointed out had been modeled on CAD operator ideas in
the hope of attracting support from the right mouse clickers. "We
thought that if we shaped a layering system that wasn't that different
from systems that had previously been introduced by engineers,
including a Revitlican Governor in Massachusetts [BIM Rendering] who's
now running for BIM manager, we would be able to find some common
ground there. And we just couldn't," Obima said.

Obima went on to reminded his supporters that more effective
collaboration cannot always overcome the deep divisions in the
American Institute of Architects. "One of the things that I think is
important for people to remember is that—you know, this CAD
process—doesn't just agree with the BIM Forum editorial page.

And, I can make some really good arguments—defending the DemoCADic
position. And there are going to be some people who just don't agree
with me. And that's okay."

kid? Hope you were amused with this one.
