Word is out about Autodesk Project Vasari. If you haven’t read about it yet, David Light has a great post on Vasari over at his blog that I encourage you to go and read.
You can go ahead and give it a try for yourself and Download Project Vasari via Autodesk Labs.
Project Vasari is a design tool with analysis capabilities available via the cloud. Vasari gives you the power of Revit parametric change engine with conceptual modeling and adaptive components. There isn’t even anything to install!
You can simply download the EXE from labs, double click on it, and get started. Throw it on a thumb drive if you want and give it to those designers.
It looks a lot like Revit, so if you know Revit, you will know Vasari. If your new to Revit, it does includes a number of great videos to get you started.
Project Vasari includes the conceptual Energy Analysis tools that were part of the Autodesk Revit 2011 Subscription Advantage Pack, but Vasari also includes a solar radiation tool as well. Pretty cool stuff.
Oh – Vasari files are compatible with Revit 2011. You can open your Vasari file in Revit 2011 and open a Revit 2011 file in Vasari.
