In the wake of the current coronavirus pandemic, this article highlights the impact of the crisis on the AEC industry so far, the response to it from AEC technology, and how it might change the nature of our industry in terms of what gets built and how.
This article discusses the main AEC-specific technology updates that were shared at the recent Autodesk University and also provides a brief overview of some of the third-party products that were exhibited at the event, including IdeateApps, ElumTools, The Wild, and Newforma.
A summary of the key technology updates that Bentley shared at its recent Year in Infrastructure conference, with a deeper dive into the Digital Twins and Digital Cities concepts that Bentley has introduced and is championing.
Earlier this summer, Solibri, the leading model-checking application, dramatically extended its scope and reach by introducing four different versions of its product, bringing its powerful model-checking, quality control, and quality assurance capabilities to different types of users across the AEC spectrum.
