Communicating information—both the visual and verbal varieties—in an accurate, timely fashion comprises the heart of any construction project. There are myriad programs and apps on the market that offer to streamline design problems, decision making, and materials selection. Here are some new tech tools that we think really make a difference.
Overcoming the barriers of corporate firewalls and physical location, A360 Collaboration for Revit enables true centralized access to Revit models by team members in all disciplines from multiple firms or sites. It also replaces work-arounds for sharing models such as use of FTP sites, sharing software, or inefficient use of email with PDF attachments. As a cloud-based service, the software does not require costly or complex IT setup and maintenance.
On Tuesday Autodesk launched the global Autodesk Foundation. The initiative looks to invest and support non-profit organizations using design to tackle pressing world issues like climate change, access to water, and healthcare. “We want to support and accelerate the design-led revolution currently underway, by investing in design-driven entities that are pursuing scalable solutions with measurable impact,” said foundation CEO and Autodesk Senior Director of Sustainability, Lynelle Cameron.
Take advantage of a valuable course at the inaugural DesignX, hosted by the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, and learn about Autodesk 360. Discover how the program takes software capabilities beyond the desktop and allows users to access information anywhere, anytime, and on several platforms. The comprehensive cloud-based design structure offers tools and services that simplify work and has the ability to scale up or down to meet business requirements. Anyone interested in learning about cloud-based design tools and services are encouraged to participate in the workshop on Monday, May 20 from 2:30 to 3:30 PM. Reserve your space here and check out other workshops online. This course offers 1 AIA CEU and is taught by Roger Liucci.
