Autodesk Launches New Solutions for Building Information Modeling...!!!

Hello everybody... Good News!!!... Today Autodesk did a World Press Day event, where they announced updates to its comprehensive software solutions for building information modeling (BIM) including Revit Architecture, Revit Structure, Revit MEP, AutoCAD Civil 3D, and Autodesk NavisWorks. BIM is an integrated workflow built on coordinated, reliable information about a project from design through construction and into operations. By adopting BIM, architects, engineers, contractors and owners can easily create coordinated, digital design information and documentation; use that information to accurately predict performance, appearance and cost; and reliably deliver the project faster, more economically and with reduced environmental impact.
Autodesk is continually working to provide our customers with technology that guide them to achieve the competitive advantage and design innovation. Autodesk’s 3D modeling technologies are helping customers understand and improve the performance and operation of their designs before they are built

AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009

AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009 enables the benefits of BIM for civil engineering, from surveying and design through to documentation submittal and the delivery of 3D models for GPS machine control during construction. Important new functions in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009 include:
• A comprehensive stormwater hydraulics and hydrology solution for storm sewer design, watershed analysis, detention pond modeling, and culvert analysis.
• Complete survey functionality that allows users to directly import raw data; edit survey observations; and create points, figures, and surfaces that are directly integrated into the model to support the design process.
• Criteria-based road design that ensures local design requirements such as stopping and passing sight and headlight distances are being met.
• Easy to implement solution for sharing model data across project teams using standard AutoCAD xrefs and intelligent Civil 3D data shortcuts (without requiring Autodesk Vault).
... We are looking forward to see what this amazing solution can do for us now...
