Big News For AEC – AutoCAD 2015 and AutoCAD LT 2015 for Mac Released

 
October 14th, 2014 by Jeff Rowe

Coming about six months after its major Windows releases, Autodesk, Inc. announced today the releases of AutoCAD 2015 for Mac and AutoCAD LT 2015 for Mac.

Although Autodesk estimates that only 1-3% of all Macs run CAD software, this is still a significant milestone for AutoCAD for the Mac platform, now in its fifth release. Significant because in the five years since the first release of AutoCAD for Mac, the Mac platform base and presence has expanded from about 15 million to today’s approximately 80+ million. A nice increase in potential market.

InsectCity and BuzzBuilding make Stockholm Self-sufficient

 
June 9th, 2014 by Sanjay Gangal

Stockholm, June 9, 2014 – Belatchew Arkitekter’s studio Belatchew Labs presents InsectCity and the insect farm BuzzBuilding, with the aim of making Stockholm self-sufficient in protein.

In the year 2050 it is estimated that the Earth will be populated by 9 billion people and a question that is raised is how a sustainable food-production that produces enough for everyone, without posing additional stress on the environment can be designed. A solution is to find an alternative to meat production, and one such protein source is insects. There are approximately 1900 edible species of insects, and 2 billion of the world’s population already eat insects today. Protein production from insects is much more efficient than meat production, for example, 10 kg fodder is needed to produce 1 kg of beef, but the same amount of fodder can produce 9 kg of insects.

ArchiCAD 18 New Features — Rendering

 
May 12th, 2014 by Sanjay Gangal

The integration of CineRender, MAXON’s world-class CINEMA 4D rendering engine into ArchiCAD 18, brings high quality, photo-realistic rendering images closer to a much wider range of designers. ArchiCAD 18 is the only BIM application that provides not only high-end, professional image quality thanks to the Cinema 4D rendering engine, but a very smooth workflow and an excellent user experience as well.

One-button “photo-shot” rendering can lead to the same high-quality results with the same ease as with tweaking numerous sliders and parameters, allowing novice users to create professional renderings. Professional users can use all the advanced rendering settings of ArchiCAD, or continue the project visualization in MAXON Cinema 4D.

ArchiCAD 18 provides a wide range of professional surface material catalogs right out of the box. Users with an active subscription license may download additional surface materials free of charge from the BIMcomponents.com portal. The entire surface material set of MAXON’s Cinema 4D is also available. ArchiCAD 18 provides brand new lamp objects enhanced with new light settings: parallel light, area light and window light sources can be applied.

The standard, IES Light format can also be assigned to ArchiCAD’s lamp objects, ensuring manufacturer-specific photometric distribution for lighting. ArchiCAD’s live rendering preview and background processor support make the rendering workflow a smooth, uninterrupted process.

This 14-part playlist introduces many of the new rendering features available in ArchiCAD 18:

The Dell Precision M2800 Mobile Workstation is Available to Help Inspire Innovation for Design Professionals and Students

 
May 2nd, 2014 by Andy Rhodes

The evolution of digital content creation has unleashed the productivity of engineers, designers, creative professionals and students everywhere, but it has also set corresponding expectations incredibly high for that productivity as well, making it crucial for those individuals to use the proper tools to help their visions to come to life. Professional and aspiring engineers and designers cannot do their job these days without specialized applications for 3D modeling, digital content creation, and computer aided engineering and design such as Adobe Creative Cloud and AutoCAD. The problem is, for some, they’re being forced to run these applications on notebooks or desktops that don’t have enough power to generate the performance they need because they can’t afford a traditional workstation.
