OK, so have you ever been to one of these Virtual events? If not then you really should check this one out. Imagine going to a tradeshow, but instead of physically being there, you can attend it online. The user interface is very cool in that it looks just like a real trade show. You can go and visit the different booths and interact with people at those booths. See below a screen shot of what it will look like. Live people will be online and will interact with you. Of course my preference is that if you go to this event, and check out the Structural Industry booth and Session.
Here are the details on it. The event takes place on June 3, 2008 at 10:00 AM EDT. Register for this event at www.autodesk.com/aecvirtualevent
The Autodesk Experience Virtual Event will include:
- Autodesk Solutions for Structural Engineering sessions with live Q&A (see details below)
- An exhibit hall where you can stop by our booths to chat with Autodesk representatives and receive more information about our new line of software solutions
- Networking opportunities
- Chance to win a 16GB iPod touch!
Structural Industry Sessions include:
11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. EDT - Autodesk Solutions for Structural Engineering session:
Find out how Revit® Structure 2009, the building information modeling (BIM) software integrates physical and analytical modeling for efficient, accurate, and flexible analysis, design, and documentation. In this session you'll be introduced to a multimaterial physical model integrated with an independently editable analytical model allowing you to deliver more efficient, accurate, and flexible analysis, design, and documentation. You'll also learn about improved coordination by leveraging information from architectural files, and about effective change management with structural analysis and parametric change management technologies.
3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. EDT - Building Information Modeling for Architects, Civil Engineers and Building Engineers:
This session will cover the principles of building information modeling (BIM), the innovative approach to coordinated and consistent communication between architects and engineers. Learn how BIM can help you efficiently create and exchange information among all your project stakeholders. You'll get an overview of how Revit, our premier BIM design software, instantly updates design changes and reflects them throughout all design views, making coordination easy and efficient, and how Civil, MEP, and Structural Engineers can work more efficiently with less errors and omissions. We'll outline ways to utilize your existing AutoCAD data while migrating to BIM and discuss in-process design visualization tools that let you leverage BIM quickly and effectively.
I hope you can make this event and attend the Structural sessions!
All the best,
