The moves pull closer into the Autodesk orbit technologies and services that support the conversion of the ideas defined by Autodesk’s design products—the company’s traditional core offerings—into the processes and outcome of construction.
Tridify, a software technology firm developing automation products for AEC, announced on Dec. 11 a partnership with the virtual reality platform vendor Unity Technologies to leverage a new cloud service, Tridify Convert, that lets developers rapidly import BIM and 3D CAD files into Unity with its Industry Foundation Class-formatted BIM data intact.
Integrating design document creation and project execution into a unified platform is the strategic goal of Autodesk's $875 million acquisition of a tech startup that set out to replace blueprints with digital workflows delivered by mobile devices on jobsites, seven years ago.
The UK's National Infrastructure Commission chairman, Sir John Armitt, and Bentley Systems' CEO, Greg Bentley, sit down for a discussion about improving infrastructure through public policy, data, and digital twins.
In preparation for the launch of its next-generation truck and SUV lines, General Motors embarked on an aggressive program involving renovations and upgrades across their North American production facilities. During this webinar, we will discuss how the team improved collaboration and accountability, and completed designs quickly with fewer errors.
BuildIT Construction, with 3D laser scanning, is the first consolidated software and hardware solution that enables users to perform immediate, real-time build and verify analysis through the entire project and facilitates a new level of cost management and operational efficiency. During this webinar, our expert speaker will discuss this new software.
The civil infrastructure world has always been a step behind its structural counterpart in implementing BIM technologies, but it is starting to catch up. This webinar will explore how transportation practitioners can understand key elements of BIM, how to implement it and how it can benefit their projects.
As more technology tools hit the market, it can be overwhelming to cut through the clutter and invest in a solution that adds value without adding unnecessary technical complexity or burden. How can contractors identify and implement solutions that work across different project sites? Attendees will learn the top solutions, strategies and best practices for maximizing construction’s digital transformation.
Software is now available to automatically assess work status by applying image recognition technology to video from reality capture tools like 360º cameras that go along for the ride on supervisors’ jobwalks. Our panelists are experimenting with such tools on jobsites now and will share what they know about how this technology is playing out, and what it looks to be best suited for in the future.
Bundling building technology systems for owners and developers will reduce the total cost of ownership, strengthen net operating income (NOI) and asset valuation over the lifetime of your project. From costs and performance, to tenant satisfaction and net zero sustainable solutions, this webinar will provide insight into what building owners and investors should be thinking about when planning new construction.
Mobile technology and cloud services are improving productivity on job sites by sharpening the tools managers use to understand the financial impacts of decisions and changes. Join us for this webinar to hear from project managers in the field who will tell us how they are using cloud services and mobile technologies today to reach better outcomes, control costs and stay on—or even ahead—of schedule.
Today’s leading design project managers, engineering managers, and BIM managers are leveraging a wide array of new digital strategies to more easily deliver projects on time, in budget, and according to specifications. A panel of practicing experts will discuss key digital strategies that helped them stay on schedule, avoid risk and rework, and drive better project outcomes.
The process of modeling even simple bridges can become tedious and error prone after engineers complete several design and analysis iterations. Engineers and drafters are faced with analysis coordination, complex diaphragm placements, reinforcement detailing, and clash detection. Join our webinar to learn how 3D modeling of common bridges can help you unlock greater project design efficiencies on your next project.
Winner Vicki L. O’Leary visits construction sites such as the Gerald Desmond Bridge replacement in Long Beach, Calif., spreading the gospel of preventing harassment and making jobsites receptive to a more diverse workforce.
