Autodesk has asked me to be part of the Autodesk AEC Blogger Council. We had our Kick-off webinar on July 6th, and let me tell you I’m excited. Autodesk has committed to us “quarterly webinars exclusive to the bloggers, advanced news before it’s made public, NFRs of products so we can play –yea, and access to internal teams.”
This first kick-off we had gave us a peak at some new items, but the one that got my ears perked was the new Autodesk Stingray coming soon. Bobby del Rosario showed us some updates to Infraworks 360, even though I don’t use the software it’s pretty cool. The ability to adjust and design roads using existing mapping looks pretty cool to me. Not really my field – but still cool.
Autodesk is also diving into a new platform, Autodesk Building Ops. This looks like a pretty good start, getting to the piece we all struggle with the owners on, Hanover and lifecycle costs. It’s a Mobile-first maintenance management solution.
I’m pretty excited to be on the council, I love learning about new technology on the horizon, helps keep this old lady from falling behind.
