US: Autodesk has unveiled several exciting new technologies for Building Information Modeling (BIM) at its annual user conference. Autodesk continues to extend BIM value across the full lifecycle of the built environment for Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) professionals in the building and infrastructure industries. Autodesk revealed that the BIM-based conceptual design tool, Autodesk FormIt, now includes a Web-based application that runs on a choice of browsers for Windows and Mac.
“We are expanding the reach of BIM on multiple fronts- into conceptual design on one end of the spectrum and into construction on the other. Our advancements are empowering professionals to move from designing objects and simply representing their ideas in 2D and 3D to designing in context while optimizing and better predicting the performance of their designs. Autodesk is helping to drive higher levels of productivity into the building design, infrastructure and construction industries both in the office as well as in the field with our expanding desktop, cloud and mobile portfolio,” said Amar Hanspal, Autodesk senior VP of Information Modeling and Platform Products.
