Autodesk acquires BIM based softwares for enhancing the bridge and road workflows

Autodesk, Inc. recently acquired 3d model oriented design and analysis software from two individual British firms. This acquisition will facilitate the development of road and bridge workflows.

Autodesk acquired Sam from Bestech Systems Ltd. It is a pack of software modules designed for the load analysis in the design of small to medium span bridges. Sam can be very effective to minimize the design deviation of bridge analysis and bridge deck design.

Autodesk procures AutoTrack from Savoy Computing Services Ltd, an Autodesk Industry Partner and a member of the Autodesk Developer Network. AutoTrack is a package of software modules intended for road, light rail, airport, parking and intersection analysis. Architects, designers and engineers can utilize it in infrastructure planning design.

AutoTrack evaluates the operations of steered vehicles, light rail vehicles and aircraft (alias vehicle swept path analysis), and offers design tools for parking areas and circumlocutions at the time of drafting in AutoCAD-based environments.

The two platforms widespread its Building Information Modeling (BIM) for infrastructure software portfolio and will assist in enhancing the acceptability of BIM for transportation design.

SDS/2 Connect 2014, an add in for Revit Structure

Design Data, a key provider of state-of-the-art BIM and 3D detailing software for the steel based engineering, detailing and fabrication sectors, just released SDS/2 Connect 2014. It is an add-in for Autodesk® Revit® Structure 2014 software and designs code-compliant connections and generate reports within the Revit surroundings. The structural engineers as well as fabricators now will be capable of designing, performing code check analysis and developing steelwork designs to fabrication inside a BIM workflow by integrating Revit structure with SDS/2 connect.

SDS/2 Connect can transmit constructible "as built" connections inside Revit Structure by bonding and reducing the gap between design and fabrication which will result in lessening design time as well as project timelines and costs. 

By setting up SDS/2 Connect, Revit Structure users can mechanically design steelwork connections and print out all the related design calculations conveniently and instantly. 

Besides, the software can convey design models for manufacturing.

Download a free version, by visiting the website at In order to include the SDS/2 connect add-in to Revit structure, the users have to pay $1,500 for each license.

AAMA 912-13 BIM specification has been just launched

American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) introduced AAMA 912-13. It is an autonomous specification useful for Nonresidential Fenestration Building Information Modeling. AAMA 912-13 describes and creates a framework with least possible prerequisites for two extensively applied model types ranging from design intent models and project execution and coordination models. It can also be utilized as reference in other industry standards, contract documents, proposals and marketing materials.

As per the explanation of AAMA 912-13, DI models are fenestration BIM models relating to “catalog” products of acceptable size and configuration that can be accessed through manufacturers’ websites or industry warehouses/library sites. PEC models are considered as a project-specific fenestration BIM models originated in pre-defined milestones in the project completion phase to be included in the complete project BIM model.

In order to fulfill the requirement for windows, curtain wall, storefront & skylights maintaining uniformity and quality assurance in product models, the commercial construction industry starts to establish and optimize consolidated workflow. 

To cope up the situation AAMA’s BIM Task Group introduced AAMA 912-13 to make the BIM application more streamlined for the fenestration sector. 

Purchase AAMA 912-13 from AAMA’s publication store.
