Android has a very big problem... the fragmetation... there is android cells for 50 bucks.... and for 500.. a lot of resolutions, with and without phisical buttons... its a little nightmare.
Hi Jose Gomez, I understand your frustration. The only excuse I can think of for GS is that they are up against the Autodesk and therefore play it very secret...
I have a Galaxy Note and was just about to ask you if you had advanced with your app for viewing 3d models on adroid? I would be very interested in something like this.
As I understand it BIMx only works on Iphones, is this correct?
Don't take it the wrong way. Based on the videos your tool does not necessarily compete with the Morph tool. Sometimes it is a good thing to have more than one way to model something.I agree. What I saw from your videos is that your tool does patterns which is not available with the Morph Tool. So I think your Tools are in a niche by themselves.
Maybe once AC16 is released you could see what its deficiencies are and you could improve on them.

Now i send the tool for all the people that mail me and i'm publishing the others tools i have made for free in my web but i stop to develop the others (i had started a lot of: a free coons surface, a tube, a infinite 3d polyline, a loft tool... )
To be fair, you can not compare GS with ADSK...
I have made an add-on in the past, to export the ArchiCAD 3D scene into Radiance compatible format. But abandoned it, as it was not feasible for me to maintain between the too-current new releases of ArchiCAD (was created in AC8 initially, IIRC, and updated to 9, 10 and 11). A few months ago, I had a hard time to getting it running in AC15... not only because of updates, but also as the Development environment for AC15 is dated (VC 2005 on Windows and XCode 3 on OSX).
In contrast with this, I had an example Revit add-on (and AutoCAD in the past) running and going perfectly well just right after installing the SDK. If there is one area in which ADSK has tons of experience, it is in API and SDK.
That said, don't give up yet. Your tools were showing something that is not like anything that is inside ArchiCAD. The only thing that comes near is the Curtain Wall tool, which at the time was showing a promise of a new underlying architecture for such complex, hierarchic assemblies. But as it stands, no other tool followed this approach (although I was hoping for the roof tool).
