For architects who may be wondering what a building model would look like once it’s on the map, there’s an app for that. CADtoEarth v2.3, created by AMC Bridge, is a free third-party plug-in designed to create a bridge between computer-aided design (CAD) and building information modeling (BIM) software and mapping technologies Google Maps and Google Earth. http://www.engineering.com/BIM/ArticleID/10851/Putting-Building-Models-on-the-Map.aspx?e_src=relart
New Version of Revizto version 3.5 are launched. The first version of the software only viewed and navigated Revit models, hence the name. But now it handles AutoCAD, FBX, IFC, Navisworks and SketchUp files. It converts those files into its own lightweight format for viewing on Windows, OS X, iOS, Android devices, and Web browsers.
Bentley Systems, Inc., well known for its 2D and 3D MicroStation CAD program, has announced that it has launched the Structural Navigator app for iPad and iPhone. This new app can be used to view and navigate structural models sent as i-models between any Integrated Structural Modeling (ISM)-enabled application, including Bentley’s RAM, STAAD and ProStructures.
