                    [post_content] => HSBCAD showcased augmented reality software for the HoloLens—Microsoft’s VR headset—at Autodesk University this year, which lets architects expand and walk through actual 3D models.

Although the software is not for sale, HSBCAD is hoping to eventually find value and sell it in the market, HSBCAD Owner Karel Vinckier said.

“Every chance that we have to try out new technologies we grab it with both hands,” he said.

The HoloLens has only been available to developers for a few months, but already HSBCAD has working software for the newest trend in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry.

As the AEC industry gradually marches towards augmented and virtual reality, the software demo shows the robust capability of HSBCAD, said Bryce Finnerty, CEO and Founder of HingePoint.

“I personally think HSBCAD is one of the greatest innovators in the CAD to CAM space and defiantly the leader in wood timber for CAD to CAM,” Finnerty said. “They are so advanced technologically, they just tinker with the augmented reality and HoloLens and they just do it for fun.”

HSBCAD is a leader in migrating companies from Computer Aided Design to Computer aided Manufacturing. They are an AutoCAD and Revit provider of applications for the offsite construction industry.

They translate architectural drawings to files that machines can read to cut and drill beams, cut sheeting, and then assemble all the elements automatically.

The Belgium based company just released a cloud application called hsbShare.

“hsbShare allows collaboration by focusing on all the metadata that is not in the drawing,” said Kris Riemslagh, Co Founder and Software Architect HSBCAD.

This includes information like schedules, delivery dates, and tracking issues. This is information that is created during the building process, and hsbShare manages that information and makes it available to all stakeholders.

“You can upload your model to the cloud and you can enhance it with all sorts of metadata and make the link between the metadata and the 3D object,” Vinckier said.

HingePoint covered the conference and saw tech for everything from making supermodels (not just BIM models) to automatic tagging technology for Revit and new 3D printing technology.

As we move into 2017 it is going to bring more and more of this technology, from virtual reality to generative design.

This is a huge departure from their roots as the most successful desktop computing software for CAD. In years past, Autodesk acquired and developed mobile apps at such speed it was tough to track them all in the Apple or Android store. At DevDays in 2013, Autodesk admitted they didn’t even know how many mobile apps they had.   Today, you can find a clean and tidy summary of all the Autodesk Mobile Apps right here!   Apps range from the educational, to enterprise awesomeness like BIM360 Glue. We encourage you to download and try them for yourself. We overviewed some of our favorites from the app store.  

 Autodesk360-iconA360

The new mainstream cloud storage, collaboration and 3D viewer from Autodesk. You can view, mark up, edit, comment, and version nearly any CAD, Revit, Navis, PDF or other compatible file. This is the future of Autodesk file storage and project collaboration.  All you need is an Autodesk ID. It is cheap, easy to use, and a “no brainer”. Don’t think about it, just sign up. Your clients will love seeing their projects on their phone! Amazing! Sure beats FedEx’ing around drawing sets.  

Autodesk360-iconA360 Drive

With A360 comes a tool A360 Drive that allows you to save files and work offline and synch them across apps. With many limitations, this tool still shows a lot of promise and we firmly believe that in the near future these generational kinks will be worked out and online mobile collaboration will be the dream we always dreamed in years past.  

autodesk-bim360-iconBIM360 Glue

You haven’t seen anything yet! If you liked A360, you’ll be blown away by BIM360 Glue. It’s HingePoint’s favorite app of this generation of software. It is fully featured and the functionality seems to be almost bottomless.  

autodesk-bim360-iconBIM360 Field

A great app for field reviews, commenting, and getting mobile construction documents on the job site and out of the trailer. Ideal for construction inspections, project management and team work. But oddly enough, the first generation of Field didn’t integrate with BIM360 Glue. But we can expect Autodesk to integrate these products in the future.  

autodesk-bim360-iconBIM360 Plan

BIM360 Plan is a project management tool in mobile format. Calendar views, charts and issues management all included in one mobile tool. For serious PMs, this tool may not impress but it has a lot of benefits and we love where this tool is heading. We need enterprise construction management tools in the field and this is a great place to start for your team. Check it out.

The world’s largest CAD file storage platform, known as Autodesk Buzzsaw, now has a mobile app. Access your Buzzsaw files from phones and tablets. What else can we say? It’s awesome. It is certainly better than the clunky desktop install of Buzzsaw… and the web-based Buzzsaw never really had the features we liked about the desktop version. Now you can relax and access your Buzzsaw files on the go.

Although the software is not for sale, HSBCAD is hoping to eventually find value and sell it in the market, HSBCAD Owner Karel Vinckier said. “Every chance that we have to try out new technologies we grab it with both hands,” he said. The HoloLens has only been available to developers for a few months, but already HSBCAD has working software for the newest trend in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. As the AEC industry gradually marches towards augmented and virtual reality, the software demo shows the robust capability of HSBCAD, said Bryce Finnerty, CEO and Founder of HingePoint. “I personally think HSBCAD is one of the greatest innovators in the CAD to CAM space and defiantly the leader in wood timber for CAD to CAM,” Finnerty said. “They are so advanced technologically, they just tinker with the augmented reality and HoloLens and they just do it for fun.” HSBCAD is a leader in migrating companies from Computer Aided Design to Computer aided Manufacturing. They are an AutoCAD and Revit provider of applications for the offsite construction industry. They translate architectural drawings to files that machines can read to cut and drill beams, cut sheeting, and then assemble all the elements automatically. The Belgium based company just released a cloud application called hsbShare. “hsbShare allows collaboration by focusing on all the metadata that is not in the drawing,” said Kris Riemslagh, Co Founder and Software Architect HSBCAD. This includes information like schedules, delivery dates, and tracking issues. This is information that is created during the building process, and hsbShare manages that information and makes it available to all stakeholders. “You can upload your model to the cloud and you can enhance it with all sorts of metadata and make the link between the metadata and the 3D object,” Vinckier said. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzJ_HFG-2BU&list=PLJOB2Ahoqzp8aERA29rro_jSkBmawKKA_   HingePoint Byline: HingePoint 2300 McDermott Road STE 200-235, Plano, TX 75025 (214) 301-0000 www.hingepoint.com HingePoint provides AutoDesk, BIM and Revit consulting & services for the AEC industry with development & integration of AutoDesk products with enterprise systems.
