Weekly Roundup – 2014.08


The week that was in the world of BIM and other Techie fun stuff, for the week of Sept. 7th – Sept. 13th

I will start this week’s Roundup with the big news from Trimble this week, as they buy Gehry Technologies. Over the last couple of years Trimble has been slowly creeping into Autodesk’s world. First with the purchase of Teckla, then buying Sketchup from Google, and now Gehry Technologies. What’s that Autodesk did you hear something……is that footsteps? Below are a couple of links to stories from different blogs about this.
