Anyone had a play with this :?:
apparently a free download to tempt people away from sketchup for conceptiual design? :shock:
Links seamlessly with Revit but also uses the 'cloud' to generate environmental data... :P
Saw it demo'od at a Seminar on Tuesday.

Yes, I've had a play with this myself. It seemed really good, but I was trying to run it on hardware that wasn't up to the job :roll:

SO I'll stick with Revit CDE for now.

I think it was an "autodesk Subscription Advantage Pack"- which was a bolt-on to 2011. You need Autodesk Subscription account details to be able to log in through Reivt, and access the service. It's pretty basic, to be honest- but then, it's free!
