Rand Worldwide announced that its IMAGINiT Technologies division is partnering with Pix4D, leading developers of 2D and 3D mapping and modeling software. This collaboration will help architectural, civil and manufacturing design engineers extract imagery taken from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and convert it into usable 2D and 3D models.
New features and enhancements AutoCAD Plant 3D plant design software and P&ID arriving with the new 2016 release of Autodesk products include replicating the plant database to distributed teams to make it faster and able to manipulate data. The main focus of Plant is to take something and process it into something else. The industries served include pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, and food and beverage, all who require special material needs such as stainless steel that must be cleaned daily.
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Convention held in Atlanta two weeks ago, was the setting for a number of AEC vendors to announce new products and services.
Last week media trekked to Autodesk’s new Innovation and Design Building in the heart of Boston for the Autodesk AEC Media Summit.

For all those traveling to the American Institute of Architects (AIA) event in Atlanta, AECCafe will be there and interested in talking to attendees and vendors.
Some of my questions for attendees:
1) What is your interest in attending the conference?
2) What kinds of technologies/standards/trends are you interested in finding out about?
3) What is your role in the world of architecture today?
4) What steps, if any, are being taken in your firm towards sustainable infrastructure?
Environmental Systems Design is a consulting engineering firm that addresses the AEC industry. According to vice president ESD Global, the company does all the engineering in the building that you can’t see “but you really notice unless it doesn’t work, such as, heating, cooling, electrical, lighting, low voltage work, computer networking and data centers.”
Chris Scotton, president and CEO of ClearEdge, talked with AECCafe Voice about the latest release of EdgeWise, EdgeWise 5.0. In this release, the ClearEdge team has updated the core automated feature extraction algorithms. The EdgeWise 5.0 release is for the BIM Suite and the Plant Suite.
The newly available AutoCAD 2016 release includes many new features that accelerate the 2D and 3D design, documentation and collaboration process plus new graphics hardware for better and faster visualization. In addition, users can share their work with others using TrustedDWG™ technology, for the storage and exchange design data.
