SDS/2 Code Clash winners:

Framing and Finishing

Bruce Vaughan of BV Detailing & Design, Inc., was named the winner of the Framing and Finishing category. This category focuses on parametrics whose main purpose is to add members or material to an SDS/2 model.

Beyond The Bolts

Nicolas Deschenes of Steltec won the Beyond the Bolts category. This category focuses on parametrics that do not add anything directly to an SDS/2 model, but instead do some type of auxiliary work, such as generating reports or some other kind of output that could be used with other software outside of SDS/2.
