    Since Microsoft blew the opportunity to acquire SketchUp for peanuts but still has a close partnership with Autodesk these types of models I've referred to as "The next era of CAD" implemented in Silverlight will go nowhere unless Microsoft can pursuade Autodesk to allow their products to export XAML.

    As it is now I've been told by one of their architects that Autodesk embeds XAML in their Design Web Format eXchange format (DWFx) but it takes COM to get it out as they require the use of their DWFx SDK. With my hands and head full enough with C#, Silverlight and WP7 I won't even try to touch that with a ten foot ++.

    Johhny, why not spread this around thye campus and maybe somebody will take it up to suck that XAML out of DWFx files.
