Weekly Roundup – 2018.47

The BIMsider’s favourite posts from the world of BIM –  for the week of Nov. 18th – Nov. 24th, 2018.


I’m going to start this week’s Roundup off with the big news from last week that everyone was talking about…Autodesk buying (or at least agreeing to buy) PlanGrid.

3) Maybe overshadowed by the PlanGrid news was the announcement for the new BIM 360 Family member coming in 2019 at AU last week. (Extranet Evolution)
