This is an incredibly cool project with a lot of future potential. Download a map from google maps and then automatically build a Dam. Even though the model is conceptual it still generates a lot of information in regards to how much material (dirt, rocks etc.) needs to be removed and what an initial cost could land on.  There is a lot of potential value for being able to effectively generate infrastructure such as dams, roads and bridges in this fashion.


10th place design automation project

It was really hard to pick out only 10 projects this year. We struggled a long time and removed 5 really good ones and in the end we still ended up with 11 projects. So this year it’s a tie in top 10. Similar for both projects is that repetitive CAD is automated and many features are automatically put in right context. Good job!
