New Products

Project Mosaic is a free technology preview that is an online peer-to-peer resource for
Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD Civil 3Dusers that provides an aggregate perspective into the existing set of Autodesk User Communities.

Eemax, Inc. announced the launch of its Building Information Modeling "BIM" product models that are built in native Autodesk Revit format to leverage the software's intelligent functionality. Based on information-rich, model-based designs, BIM has become quite popular for designers, architects, and contractors because it helps work out any issues during the design phase so they do not occur during the actual construction phase.

Tetra 4D is pleased to announce the upcoming PRE-RELEASE of 3D PDF Converter for Revit.  Running as an integrated plug-in to Revit, 3D PDF Converter for Revit will enable users to directly publish interactive, 3D PDF files directly from Revit 3D models, which can then be distributed to and viewed by anyone who has the free Adobe® Reader®.  This pre-release will be made available to a limited number of participants willing to participate in evaluation of the software and feedback on the product to our product development team.  After the free trial period, all participants will be entitled to purchase the software at
a discounted price! Terms will be made available to participants upon selection notification.
