Here's some more information on another Autodesk cloud tool. What's amazing is that between high speed internet and the speed and low cost of high end servers, the ability to use these tools will totally change the way we design and build buildings.
Before the post below, here's a little amusing joke for you.
Q:What does an AutoCAD user consider cloud computing?
A:...making more revision clouds on their dwg files....
(do they use silver colored lineweights?)
You may have seen around that two new technology previews have been released around BIM. Project Spark is now available to try out. For a great overview of Spark, look no further than David Light's post on his blog, Project Spark - quick overview. He hits the nail right on the head. Spark is a great way to get into Building information modeling.
Also, if you want to learn more about Project Spark at the up coming AU, I will be teaching a class on Spark at the conference. I'll also be joined by the product manager for the technology preview.
There is another technology preview on labs that almost slipped by me, but it is also totally worth checking out. Project Storm is a technology preview that provides cloud-based structural analysis to structural engineers using Revit Structure. Check out the post over on Its Alive in the Lab for all the great details and check out the video below:
Some very cool stuff happening on Labs for BIM and Revit.
