Susan Smith of AEC Cafe gets the Value of Interactive 3D

As Susan just wrote in her article, Interactive 3D Environments Replace CAD Drawings the value of reusing CAD data is made greatest when you move from viewing to interactive. 

For instance a service person wants to understand how to service a product or during the product development process they want to define/design the service procedures for the product.  Value is created for the service person by seeing the product with respect to / in context to, the service procedures.  Viewing the raw CAD data, while important, it is not what creates the value.  Value is created by authoring context and/or interacting with the authored context.
