Autodesk - New Versions - New Websites - New Info - Who Knew?

Just for the heck of it, you may want to take a quick look at www.autodesk.com. They've updated their website for the 2010 product lines.

Of course, you'll want to go to www.autodesk.com/revit first, unless of course you want to see all of the great new productivity features of AutoCAD 2010. Yeah, I didn't think so.

Next up, http://www.autodesk.com/bim - The BIM Advantage page

Followed by http://www.autodesk.com/green - Everything you wanted to know about taking the LEED. (Personal note: Just because you're LEED accredited, do you really know the workflow and process to use technology to design a Green Building? No? We have classes for just that. Learn how to use Revit with analysis tools such as Green Building Studio)

Civil & Structural Engineering - Don't forget your friends, the engineers. You're really not a BIM Manager unless you're working with Revit Structure and Civil 3D engineers. http://www.autodesk.com/civil-structural-engineering

If you're going to be a LEED architectural firm, you're going to have to insist that your MEP engineers get on board too: Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing Systems - http://www.autodesk.com/mep

...and my personal favorite http://www.autodesk.com/construction. If you thought you were an advanced user of BIM for Architecture, welcome to the world of 4D, 5D and 6D. It's a whole other world once you hand the blueprints to the contractor. Welcome to my world of "Design to Build" starring our friends, BIM, LEED and IPD.

Now that you're done with all that, take a look at my www.BIMCycle.com page for all of the other software pieces that tie into all of the above products. Yeah, I know, we're in a recession and you're not spending any money. That doesn't mean you can't look, research, play with trials, contact me for pricing and start planning now to adopt all of these new technologies, learn the workflow and process and be prepared for the future. Contact me for any questions, comments or how we can help you.
