This time, it’s nothing less than the most visited capital in the world, the City of Lights, also know as Paris. “Paris 3D Saga” is an educative and entertaining journey in the history of Paris beginning 20 centuries ago. Today, we’re releasing three ways to experience the Paris 3D Saga: a live event (if you have the chance to be in Paris tonight), an online 3D experience, as well as an iPad app. Please have a look at the video previews below!
At a first glance, Paris 3D might just look as a video game. It’s not. Each step of the reconstitution was verified and validated with history experts. An history committee under the supervision of Didier Busson, history expert and archaeologist of Paris city, ensured that the project was scientifically and architecturally accurate. Because in the end, whether it’s for our customers from any industry or for an historical reconstitution, our technology and approach serve the same intent: it’s not about building virtual universes for the sake of virtuality ; it’s about building virtual universes that are the closest to the real world, for the sake or reality. Or, in a single word, 3DEXPERIENCE. Read full article »
AutoCAD users may be comfortable with their old habits, but more and more AEC-related firms are turning to Autodesk Revit for a new way to model buildings from start to finish. According to the Global Fraternity of Architects (GFA), Revit is the future—especially for projects that demand greater precision and efficiency. Read full article »
In recent years, two powerful software tools have revolutionized the way workers within and beyond the manufacturing and architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industries collaborate.
One tool, Autodesk Vault data management software, was designed to help design, engineering and construction workgroups organize, manage and track design data. Autodesk Vault integrates with over twenty different Autodesk Digital Prototyping and Building Information Modeling (BIM) applications, from AutoCAD to Civil 3D. Read full article »
I’ll admit that my design expectations for park benches, bus stops and public trash cans were pretty low before I saw the products developed by a company called Landscape Forms. The Kalamazoo, Michigan-based company has been producing stylish site furniture and accessories for more than 40 years, but it wasn’t until 2002 that the company took a huge leap forward into 3D by switching to SolidWorks.
