We are excited to announce a significant update to Autodesk Project Galileo Online that will be available today. Project Galileo Online is a free technology preview, released on Autodesk Labs, that extends the desktop workflow of Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler 2012 Service Pack 1 into the Autodesk Cloud. This update improves upon the collaboration capability of Project Galileo Online that was released back in August to add Cloud-based web and mobile scenario viewing capabililty.
So, YES! You can now publish your really cool infrastructure models to the Cloud so that your coworkers and stakeholders can see them in web browsers or on iPad 2 tablets!
To access the preview, check the Project Galileo Online site later today and follow the instructions to get started.
The general workflow for using the technology preview after getting set up is:
- Create a model in Infrastructure Modeler 2012 Service Pack 1
- Use the Scenario creator to select a part of a model that will be packaged into a Scenario
- Publish the Scenario locally to disk or publish it to the Autodesk Cloud
The mobile app works on Apple iPad 2 machines and users can either retrieve scenarios off the cloud, or load them on their local iPad 2 using iTunes.
Here are a couple of slides that show the general workflows possible with Project Galileo Online for Web and Mobile:
