With all change in organizations, there are headaches, hiccups and some hairpulling, but definitely it is best to keep those activities to a minimum.

Those I spoke to at SPAR3D 2016 last week were amazed at the progress the 3D laser scanning/reality capture products had made over just one year. Many people attended in order to find out if the technology would be right for their organization and what it would entail in terms of a learning curve, and of course, how much it would cost.
Typically, Autodesk announces the latest version of its software in the spring of each year, and this year is no exception.
The four morning keynotes kicking off SPAR3D 2016 in The Woodlands, Texas, Tuesday morning included Eddie Paddock, Engineering/VR Technical Discipline lead, NASA Johnson Space Center, Greg Bentley, CEO Bentley Systems, Inc., David Smith, CTO, Wearality, and Curtis Chan, technical evangelist, Autodesk.
Buildings are now generating vast amounts of data, cities need to be sustainable, flexible and producers of resources. AEC professionals must also have their eye on environmental impact and diminishing greenhouse gas emissions in design and construction as well as operations. As owner/operators get more involved in the entire lifecycle of the project, there is a greater need for convergence and collaboration of AEC teams.
New Releases of TurboCAD Pro 2016 and TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Architectural and Mechanical UsersThursday, March 10th, 2016
IMSI/Design recently announced the release of both TurboCAD Pro 2016 and TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016.
Two topics coming up for February timeframe on AECCafe Voice:
Collaboration platforms and the Cloud
Recently Graphisoft hosted a webinar outlining an historical project where they used laser scanning point clouds and ARCHICAD 19 to produce as-built drawings of the Arizona State Fairgrounds Grandstand Building.
Trends that are shaping the built world are powered by the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, institute BIM mandates across the globe, the need for convergence or collaboration of AEC teams, the need for the “smart city,” emergence of the owner/operator extending the lifecycle of a project into operations and maintenance, and provision of tools that are right for the job. These trends are linked, as one will benefit and nourish the other.
The first week of January AECCafe Voice will publish a Trends/Predictions article, looking forward toward what might be the big trends for the new year, as well as the next five years.
