LAS VEGAS — From BIM to virtual reality, the construction industry was out front at Autodesk University 2017.

With the slogan “The future of building things,” Autodesk promoted its many software products for architectural, engineering and construction industries during its Nov. 14-16, 2017, conference at the Venetian resort on the Las Vegas Strip.

It held an AEC-themed keynote Nov. 16, 2017, from vice presidents Nicolas Mangon and Jim Lynch, and Sarah Hodges, an Autodesk director. They used the address to promote the latest enhancements to BIM 360, the cloud-based program designed to connect all phases of construction projects, including HVAC and duct fabrication.

“Autodesk continues to build a common data platform across A, E and C,” Mangon said during his speech. “Beginning with construction and extending upstream to design collaboration and downstream into operations and maintenance. That platform is BIM 360.”
