Autodesk is going to introduce some latest BIM based technologies useful for AEC and construction sectors
Autodesk, Inc. is going to introduce a wide array of products as well as technologies with desktop, cloud and mobile portfolio for Building Information modeling to develop the value of BIM in the building and infrastructure sectors for AEC industries.
Autodesk offered a crucial update for computational design catering to building designers with the amalgamation of Autodesk Dynamo and Autodesk DesignScript.
Autodesk unveiled the release of Autodesk FormIt, a BIM-supported conceptual design tool, involving a web-based function that performs on selected browsers compatible with Windows and Mac (under beta stage). Autodesk FormIt contains some user-friendly tools which facilitates architects and designers to generate, collaborate and allocate early-stage design ideas on all platforms along with iPad and Android and upgrade the BIM progression by providing models straight into Autodesk Revit. Later on Autodesk is planning to include an exclusive feature in the FormIt family of applications with real-time collaboration, that facilitates newbie designers to synchronously access and work together on design models applying their FormIt application of choice.
Autodesk lately introduced Autodesk Structural Bridge Design after acquiring technology assets from UK-based Bestech Systems. It is useful for bridge designers and engineers.
Autodesk also acquired technology assets from UK-based Azalient Ltd. The acquisition results in developing BIM-based design workflows between traffic engineers and transportation planners performing on roads, highways and railway projects.
Based on Autodesk's current alliance with Topcon, the two companies are joining hands to promote the incorporation of BIM workflows and field layout facilitating better predictability, productivity and profitability.
Autodesk is planning to introduce a new BIM 360 mobile app for iPad for a smooth progression of accurately finding out the BIM coordinates on a construction site. This application caters to general contractors and MEP trades. The application manages a robotic total station along with the latest LN-100 3D positioning system from Topcon to precisely position control and layout points on the construction site. As-built data can be feed back into the design model through BIM 360 for getting a superior result.
