CADsoft Consulting is launching an exclusive event on Progressive Building and Design Technology

SolutionsCADsoft Consulting Inc, a recognized leader in executing design and construction technologies, officially launched CADsoft University in Tempe, Arizona, a convention where architecture, engineering, and construction professionals will meet and exchange new practices for employing design solutions.

The CADsoft’s award-winning technical team will conduct the event. The event will commence from January 13, 2016 in Phoenix and from February 18, 2016 in Albuquerque.

This exclusive event will focus on two sections which involve Infrastructure & Design and Building & Construction, with the elementary theme of “this is what the future will be, but you can do this now.” The technical team will analyze the three stages of a civil engineering project which include planning and collection, design, and output—all through the Infrastructure & Design portion of the day through presentations on Autodesk products like Autodesk Infraworks 360, Autodesk ReCap, and Autodesk 3ds Max.

The Building & Construction portion will teach generative design, virtual reality for design review, handheld laser scanning for as-built design and building energy observance for facilities management.

CADsoft’s technical team also demonstrate mapping 3D models and snapping photos via drones, together with the “Living City Project,” a concept that will facilitate specialists to familiar with AutoCAD software’s sound capability to visualize realistic demonstrations of whole cities.

Autodesk gospeller Lynn Allen will conduct a lunch session to focus on the “Future of Making Things,” an epoch of technological movements and ruptures in building design and construction that advance rapidly.

In order to get more information on this event go through the following link www.cadsoft-consult.com. AEC industry specialists who want to participate with the event can register here for Phoenix (cadsoft.wufoo.com/forms) and here for Albuquerque (cadsoft.wufoo.com/forms/cadsoft-university-registration-albuquerque).

How to model a house with BricsCAD BIM

This CAD video is based on the new features of BricsCAD BIM and these are implemented for creating the model of a fitness building containing lofted roofs.

The source files can be downloaded from http:/www.bricsys.tv/attach/230/2start.z¬ip.

BricsCAD® is the robust CAD software platform that integrates the customary feature set of native dwg through sophisticated 2D tools and intelligent 3D direct modeling on Windows and Linux. BricsCAD BIM is the first BIM system for Linux users, and the first .dwg-based BIM system for Mac users.

GRAITEC launched Ball Post Railing Designer add-on for Autodesk Advance Steel 2016

GRAITEC, the leading French BIM and CAD software vendor, just released the Ball Post Railing Designer add-on. It is a free downloadable extension for Autodesk Advance Steel 2016.

With this newly released add-on, the users can get rid of the laborious & monotonous process for designing generic components of BIM models.

By applying this add-on, the users will be able to generate ball post railing systems in their building information modeling (BIM) designs with the help of a manufacturer’s pre-built system or designing a custom system.

There are options with custom systems that involve various features of the following design process :-

  • Possibility for creating design with curved elements.
  • Revision of kickrails.
  • Post length and ball size definition.
  • Top and middle handrail modification.
  • Capability of denoting the number and distance of posts.

Increasing quick availability of BIM Elements: The Ball Post Railing Designer app saves significant times for users in their modeling process as well as enhance the productivity. It develops the scopes for generating pre-defined designs in BIM and facilitates the architects and engineers not to produce generic parts over and over again.

The Ball Post Railing Designer is specifically designed for steel detailing, construction and structural engineering.

To get more updates on the various features of Ball Post Railing Designer add-on for Advance Steel, visit the GRAITEC website (http://www.graitec.com/en/ball_post_railing_designer.asp)

Trimble introduces Sketchup 3d warehouse for Revit

Now Revit users can access Trimble’s SketchUp 3D Warehouse, a wide-ranging respiratory hub, to download models and use them to any Revit project by applying 3D Warehouse for Revit. It is a new plugin for Revit that integraes BIM tool with 3d warehouse.

This plugin makes a two-way communication system among Revit live session & 3d warehouse to obtain models from and transfer them to Revit session and making proper modification, export them back to the warehouse for future use.

This exclusive plugin facilitates the users to explore sketchup’s 3d warehouse as well as apply them in any Revit project and upload revit families to the identical site.

3D Warehouse for Revit is complete free for users and they can easily generate a 2D or 3D model and upload it for everybody else to use at free of cost.
