More details about the Revit Advantage Packs

I must admit I was furiously typing away while watching the pre-release webcast of the new subscription advantage pack features and I was in such a rush to get it out there, that I was too drained from viewing, blogging, tweeting, chatting and uploading that I left it the way it was on the post.

On the other hand, Alan James Wooldridge of "http://cadalot-revitlearningcurve.blogspot.com" fame did such a fantastic job of summarizing the event, that I thought you could read his version here as well. After having a nice chat today with David Harrington from Walter P Moore "http://caddhelp.blogspot.com", I've come to realize that engineers have the nicest, structurally sound blogs.

This is the beginning of the new Autodesk approach of continued product features released throughout the year. Finally, a true benefit for subscription customers and a great reason to stay on subscription. All of these features are real time savers.

Over on the Civil 3D side, Autodesk added Point Cloud support. That will be a huge benefit and create a more compelling reason to partner Revit firms with Civil 3D firms. You can see Civil 3D features here.
