Project Vasari – Autodesks Answer to Sketchup as a Revit Frontend App.

December 1, 2010

This program looks to be Autodesk’s answer to those Architects that have a death grip on Sketchup.  The program appears to have integrated some Ecotect features as well and apparently is being designed to seamlessly integrate with Revit 2011.  Not sure why AD chose to develop this application separately.  Could be to avoid the code overhead and integration problems trying to work it into the Revit application or possibly to generate a new revenue stream or as a pilot program for Cloud Computing, Revit integration seamed pointless.  It does seam to utilize much of Revit’s in place capabilities.
