Does anyone have a CAD file of the entire world, showing all the cities and all the building footprints? Ideally 3-D with all the buildings fully detailed and scale figures of all the real people and animals? Make sure that all cities towns and villages are fully detailed? I need it today because my thesis advisor is about to fail me and I'm not sure if I should go to sci arc or UT Austin anyways, do you guys think I will be able to get a job with $150,000 in student loan debt? My grades aren't very good but I think I saw a portfolio once so if I took the GRE will I get in? Please the CAD file must be in micro station v 26:6dh,6 format ONLY and not too big my email account is already maxed out with funny cat videos. Do you think I should take REVIT or LEED classes? Which one do employers think is more important?
You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
My CAD file of the world even includes all the clouds that float by overhead--it's a simple script that came to me one day in the shower (boy that Tigerman chapter in Irony or, the Self-Critical Opacity of Postmodern Architecture is weird [my database also has all the prehistoric cave paintings, even the ones not yet discovered*] it's like "How to make yourself important when you probably really aren't") because it's important to take showers.
*don't ask--that includes the price[less]
Here's the section of a house I'm designing...
...for the land I bought in Greenland 20 years ago.
I usually put all the really big CAD files in my computer's black hole folder.
As much of a joke that this is, it makes me wonder - is there a way to extract 3D info from Google Earth? Because, well, that would be awesome.
Jorge Luis Borges should be able to help you out.

I actually *do* have a CAD file of the whole world. But I can only get it to print at full scale.
does it work with makerbot donna? i bet you could 3d-print the world over the existing world.
I have one of the entire known universe. The problem is finding anything in it ... you keep zooming forever and it takes a really long time to refresh.
Yeah, so when I print a 24x36 sheet that's what I get - a blank 24x36 sheet. Very accurate.
Miles when I tried doing "zoom extents" on your drawing it just kept going infinitely. I'm still waiting, but according to the new top quark calculations I should only have to wait about 10 billion more years.
What type of laptop should I get to open this file? I've heard that Macs are the best for architecture, especially autocad.
Thanks in Advance!
