The YuZu Business Case on Autodesk University 2012

At Picard Innovations, we develop software applications to improve the use of precision tools in construction development. Our breakthrough application is called YuZu; smart software that captures existing measurement conditions into the AutoCAD and Revit environment. Instantly and easy, using Bluetooth. It allows you to draw while you measure. And YuZu is not just more accurate, but also 50% more time effective. It’s the new measure in drawing.

Please watch the explanation of our business case on Autodesk University 2012

The complete virtual class is online at the Autodesk University website.

ADN + AU in Las Vegas & city trip to San Francisco

Last week I first spent a long day at the Autodesk Developer Network Conference, which predominantly focused on new API functionality in the upcoming products. A strong emphasis was laid upon the applications in the Cloud. We’ll see whether I can apply this in a project.
Then it was time for Autodesk University; main sessions, workshops, networking, exhibit hall, beer bust etcetera.

After the hustle of Las Vegas we had time to enjoy San Francisco for a few days. What a wonderful beautiful city it is. We were able to see a lot using the hop-on-hop-off bus. The sun came out just at the right moment for a nice picture of the Golden Gate bridge.

AU Virtual 2012: Speaker Confirmation

Congratulations! The following class proposal(s) for AU Virtual 2012 have been accepted:

Class ID: CP5915-V
Class Title: Take your Building Surveying to the Next Level by Capturing Measurements On-Site Directly into Autodesk® Revit® Architecture
Class Type: Virtual

Class Description:
Real estate owners need to have accurate building measurements to calculate lease-holder partitioning of costs. Building project managers have the need to take control measurements before the prefab concrete beams or windows arrive at the building site. In both and many other cases, the building surveyor comes to the rescue, using a measuring tape and paper drawings. What if he could capture the measurements on-site using an infrared measuring device and transfer them directly into Autodesk® Revit® on a tablet PC? This class gives you background information about the business case and shows a solution that uses a building surveyor application in Revit Architecture. The application also available in AutoCAD®.

I’m going to present a virtual class at Autodesk University. After presenting in Las Vegas in 2004 and 2007, I’m going virtual this year.
