Autodesk conducted a virtual press conference on Friday, February 6, 2009 and announced new versions of its software products for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industries. If you weren't able to attend the webcast, here's some info they shared on Revit Architecture 2010...
NOTE: Under the terms of the non-disclosure agreement, the features that are about to be shown cannot be explained or discussed any further. As soon as the confidentially agreement is lifted, I will explain some of the new features further!
Product availability will vary by country. Details and purchasing options will be accessible starting March 24, 2009.
Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010 Software (BIM for architects and designers) enables customers to more accurately capture early design concepts with improved design functionality via:
- An intuitive conceptual design workspace to create complex geometry more easily.
- A new user interface (UI) that works the way designers think, providing a smoother and more continuous design workflow.
- Improved interoperability with programs such as AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 software, Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2010 software and Autodesk Inventor software.
New conceptual design features allow you to sketch freely, create 3D models quickly, and take your design from concept to construction documentation all in one environment.
The new conceptual design features also help you to prepare models for fabrication and construction with built-in tools for dividing, patterning and panelizing complex forms.
