Autodesk Infrastructure customers need to distribute knowledge and data to their project teams and stakeholders. That's why our customers have geodatabases, CAD repositories, BIM repositories, and mounds of spreadsheets that are all shared around their organizations in web interfaces and through file attachments in email. Our customers also are often confounded by the complexity of combining data in those different sources and then getting that combined result out to other project team members in a reusable format.
You may have seen this week's announcements about our new product, Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler 2012. Infrastructure Modeler, a desktop tool for conceptual design at the scale of infrastructure, is great for merging CAD, GIS, and 3D model data into one project. Users also need to collaborate, share, and distribute that merged information to others on a team.
We invite you to try out a new Autodesk Labs project that combines the ability to take models with merged GIS, CAD, and BIM data from Infrastructure Modeler with the ability to collaboratively edit and distribute those models on the Autodesk Cloud!
Project Galileo Online allows users of Autodesk® Infrastructure Modeler software to collaboratively edit and manage models. Using Project Galileo Online, users can publish models to the Autodesk cloud, invite others to access, download, and commit changes to shared models. Project Galileo Online takes advantage of Project Bluestreak to give team members an instant messaging interface that is tied into notifications from the service. Project Galileo Online extends the sketching and model aggregation power of Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler to team scenarios in which multiple team members on planning and engineering projects from remote offices can work together to create and review multiple project proposals using the same data.
To get started with Project Galileo Online:
- Ensure that you have installed Autodesk® Infrastructure Modeler 2012 and that your system meets the requirements
- Download the installer from the Labs site
- Check out the Labs site for the help and FAQ
