Conceptual Design and Modeling - White Paper

While approach and attitude about design may differ from designer to designer, most designers agree that optimal design solutions exist - they just need to be found. The question is, how does a designer find the right solution for any given project? How can design criteria be used more efficiently to evaluate possible design solutions? And how can technology help make this exploration and discovery process more informative and more efficient?

Autodesk has a variety of tools that can be used for conceptual design, allowing schematic project information to flow among disciplines and project phases, and to inform early design decision making. These toolsets enable designers to generate, visualize and then develop forms into architectural design elements.

Conceptual Design and Modeling - White Paper
This white paper details how Autodesk tools such as Autodesk Maya, Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk Impression and Revit Architecture support conceptual design and the building information modeling process.

Merging Towers Concept Model at Customer Site

Well we all know it is really painful to work on a holiday particularly if it is weekend :(, however sometimes things turn out to be absolutely opposite. Anyway, today I happened to visit two of our prestigious customers (long due meeting) and believe me I was amazed to look at the kind of work they had been doing on Revit Architecture. Looking at the "Construction Documentation" was like unbelievable. My colleague Nikhil is trying to put together a success story from their projects, stay tuned to know more.
Oh, it almost slipped out of my mind due to excitement that above concept was a result of our discussion at one of those sites, I thought of sharing with you all, in case you find something HIDDEN in it :)

Do let me know if you find anything...


Impression will no longer be sold as a stand-alone application

Impression R2 Announced at World Press Day
It was announced that Autodesk Impression 2 (to be released this Spring) will be available to Subscription customers of AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD Civil 3D, AutoCAD Map 3D, AutoCAD MEP, and AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite. Impression will no longer be sold as a stand-alone application.Customer feedback for Impression has been overwhelmingly positive. By offering Impression as a benefit of Subscription, Autodesk is able to greatly expand distribution of Impression by making it available as a download to Subscription customers worldwide.Second, Autodesk is committed to making the Autodesk Subscription program the best way to stay current with the latest design technology. A few years back Autodesk started releasing AutoCAD on a yearly basis to offer greater value for Subscription customers. With the release of the 2009 family of products, Autodesk is adding Impression to the mix of subscription benefits so that subscription customers gain not only the benefits of simplified software management but access to exclusive technology offerings.
