During the course of today (and throughout the week) you’ll likely hear us at Autodesk talking about the latest deployment of Autodesk 360 and Autodesk BIM 360. If you’re familiar with the notion of cloud based services, then Autodesk 360 will be a natural way to extend your designs beyond your local desktop. The power of Autodesk 360 starts to compound when you consider that mobile access means that I could collaborate on this new tower concept design while I was making new friends in Kenya.
Lest we forget the cloud gives (virtually) limitless compute power aka infinite computing which makes it great for computationally intensive processes like rendering, visualization, and simulation. On your desktop workstation you do not have the ability to scale almost infinitely by adding more and more cores hosted on remote servers to complete the project fast. It makes that new 8-core workstation such a wimpy tool for design and engineering!
One way to get and stay connected with the Autodesk 360 team is to click over to the recently updated Facebook page. Don’t forget to head over to 360.autodesk.com, login, and try out this innovative cloud based technology and the advantages and benefits it provides.
