What is New in Autodesk Building Design Suite Premium 2014

What is New in Autodesk Building Design Suite Premium 2014

A webinar on October 31st, 2013 from 12:00-1:00PM

Many of the BUGI members have been asking for a presentation on what is new in Autodesk’s 2014 Revit.  This webcast will give attendees an overview of Revit 2014.  However we decided to expand the presentation just a bit and touch on Building Design Suite Premium as a whole.  Why?  Because it is really at the heart of the “What’s new in 2014” question.  BDSP is the most common building design tool in use today.  The ever increasing interoperability that Autodesk is including between the various products puts BDSP at the heart of “what’s new”.  We will spend a good amount of time on the new Revit tools specifically – from both the Architecture, a little structure and the MEP side as well.

Presented by Brian Juge RA, AIA and Tony Crawford ME

BUGI Webinar – Autodesk Infraworks for BIM to GIS and Planning and Development

Autodesk Infraworks for BIM to GIS and Planning and Development

A webinar on August 27th, 2013 from 12:00-1:00PM

The lines between traditional design disciplines are blurring more and more as the technology to really examine every aspect of projects becomes more available. Autodesk Infraworks and the implications it has on really changing the way Architects, Planners and Engineers look at the total project picture is one of the most exciting of these technologies. In this session attendees will have the opportunity to get a perspective on how Infraworks can be used in the planning and development fields, site development, project geo-location and many other aspects of the wholeistic approach to project planning.

Join us to learn how Autodesk Infraworks can be used to improve your coordination workflow.
