Dr Jonathan Ingram, who designed and wrote the first BIM systems, will speak at the design technology event on March 28

Dr Jonathan Ingram, the man behind Sonata, Reflex and the foundations of Revit, will be presenting at DEVELOP3D LIVE on March 28 at Warwick University.

In his talk, ‘The story of BIM: Fact, fantasy and the future’, Ingram will feature case studies illustrating the first use of BIM in engineering, architecture, building services and others in the 1980s and 1990s and demonstrate direct links with today’s software from Graphisoft, Revit, Reflex, Sonata and others.

Last year Ingram was awarded the Royal Academy of Engineering Prince Philip Medal to recognise his work developing the systems that heralded the revolution in BIM.

DEVELOP3D LIVE 2017 showcases the very latest in design, engineering, visualisation, VR and 3D printing technology. The event features a four-track conference and over 70 exhibitors. Tickets are free. Register here.

One of the big focuses for this year’s event is a dedicated conference stream for design visualisation, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR).

There will be rendering experts on hand from Chaos Group (maker of V-Ray), Lightworks (Iray+) and AMD (Radeon ProRender), plus AR and VR technologies presented by Microsoft (HoloLens) and HTC (Vive). There will also be a dedicated VR Zone on the exhibition show floor where delegates can try out the very latest VR technologies for design and engineering.
