Technology Product Highlights from AIA 2012 Expo: Part 1

Last week, I attended the AIA 2012 Convention and Expo that was held in Washington DC, and devoted all my time at the Convention to exploring the technology products on display at the Expo,  which are covered in a two-part article. In the current article, we will explore a new pedestrian simulation software integrated into Vectorworks that seemed to be nicely representative of using computational power for more advanced and intelligent tasks, the enhancements in Bluebeam’s new release, Revu 10, for PDF generation, review, and collaboration, and the many enhancements in ArchiCAD 16 that is being released by Graphisoft later this month. We will also look at the several new iPad apps that were on display this year, suggesting that this new medium is taking off in AEC.
