One night Leonardo has another invention.. the most umportant of all
NOT a real thing but...An Abstraction!
He invented not as having figures of data on a grid but to have a description in a cell.
Before If I need to have 3d Cubes
I had to repeat the description 3 times.
Now I can have only Once! as a description
ann then to call the Description!
Cube as individual entitiy
Cube as Named Description / description
Five Cube as Instances fo the Description Object
i can add
A. Point of insertion in x y z space
B. Scaling in the x, y z axes
C. Rotation in the x, y z axes
Leonardo These time made a trip To spread the word:
and he stopped at Carnegie-mellon University in the second halh of Sixties
Chuck start to evangelize a first group of pupils
And Collegue Bill Mitchell
Who created other pupils among which
and Nino Saggio
who Spread the word...
the idea was to create a 3d database
A instatiated description of a word that contains at the same time
Geometrical 3d information but also
Filed of quantitive data (such as in a spread sheets
or descriptive fields such as in a data base.
the Great thing is that conceptual is a MODEL
allows such as in a Spreadsheet a WHAT IF organization
Because it is Nested
dita mano avambraccio Braccio
Fingers Hand Forearm Arm
It Moves and it is organized Hierarchically
Moving a branch will move the other related branchesw in the upper part.
a modification of a descriptio of the original objected (or to any other part of the trees will PASS ON to all the other connected branches!
And In time was clear that I can add many other field beisde the gemetrical description .. So trat I will start to have aì what I call A BIM a Buolding Information system
Chapter "Model" in the book
Create a simple Hierarchical Model conceptually appked to aniene Flows if possible
