Autodesk and Bentley team up on AEC Interoperability
Ok, now I've seen it all (almost) as today, Autodesk and Bentley held a joint PR conference announcing their efforts to team up and bolster their collective efforts for interoperability... wow! From the PR... Through supporting the reciprocal use of their available APIs, Autodesk and Bentley will enable AEC project teams to combine products from both providers within integrated workflows. For instance, a design team could use a mixture of Autodesk and Bentley software, such as Autodesk’s Revit platform and Bentley’s STAAD and RAM structural products, and simulate and analyze their designs or manage project information using Autodesk NavisWorks software or Bentley’s ProjectWise.
