Web-based AutoCAD

Autodesk Labs has recently introduced Project Butterfly - a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model of AutoCAD. This seems to be modeled in a similar way to their Freewheel service for Design Web Format (DWF) collaboration.  Users can upload DWG files and invite others to view and edit your designs - with or without a Project Butterfly account.

The Third & The Seventh

Is it live...or is it BIM? A fellow Autodesk forum member posted a link to the following short film by Alex Roman featuring Louis Kahn's Exeter Library.  Watch the video, then be amazed at how it was created by viewing the Compositing Breakdown video that follows.  Fantastic technology, art and architecture.
