More low-cost CAD options

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Last week I wrote about Low Cost CAD Options for AEC professionals. This week we add to this list with the following products:

Bricsys BricsCAD

BricsCAD is a company that does not put out press materials, but instead offers BricsCAD release notes. These are for those hardy engineers who want to tools at a low price to really build their own open platform CAD solution. Bricsys provides a DWG engineering design software “BricsCAD,” which is said by the company to be an “industrial strength CAD software platform with industry leading support for the AEC, GIS, civil engineering, process and power, and mechanical CAD markets.” The company is a founding member of the Open Design Alliance, founded in 2002.

New installsets for BricsCAD (Windows) version 14.2.06-1 en_US are available for download. You can also subscribe to the BricsCAD Releases RSS feed. (more…)

Low cost CAD options

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

For many years now, low-cost CAD options have taken up the slack for an industry of potential users just getting into CAD, and those who may not need a full-fledged higher priced CAD program such as AutoCAD or Bentley MicroStation. All of these CAD options have mobile capabilities for tablet or smartphone users, either on both Android and iOS or on one of them.

Google Glass for site evaluation to be combined with IMSI/Design’s TurboSite for field reporting.

The combination of Google Glass for site evaluation and TurboSite, a field reporting app, will be a great one. Users will be able to do site inspections without having to carry building plans, digital camera, laptop and other accoutrements.

Beyond the desktop with IMSI/Design’s TurboSite and free TurboSite Reader for iPad

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

IMSI/Design announced TurboSite and free TurboSite Reader for iPad in November. I spoke to Bob Mayer about this release at Autodesk University.

TurboSite is a field and site survey mobile app that facilitates drawing in the field and geolocation using a GPS on an iPad. It also has an indoor sensor based positioning system which tracks your position indoors.

Royal Farros, CEO of IMSI/Design, said: “TurboSite is the first true mobile AEC app… a professional building app that can’t be done on a desktop or laptop computer.”

This product eliminates the need for laptops, full sets of building plans, table and chairs and digital cameras that were all a part of the site visit process in the past. The information gathering is also simplified by having this app on the iPad where all building plans can be electronically viewed and navigated with the touch screen.

According to the press release, GeoWalk tracks location within a structure, while GeoNudge pinpoints exact location. When documentation is required, a photo or video is taken using iPad’s built-in camera and is automatically positioned correctly in a separate layer over the electronic file. Text notes and audio annotations can also be added. Even your orientation when taking notes and photos is denoted by TurboSite’s unique GeoMarks. GeoMarks offers a collection of rich data that are geolocated, according to Mayer. This can includes audio, notes, photos, dictation, and many other data types.
