Midwest University

This article captures an overview of the sessions, classes, and exhibits at the recently concluded Midwest University, an AEC-focused technology conference organized by CTC, an Autodesk reseller and partner, to provide learning and networking opportunities for those located in the Midwestern region of the US. Highlights include identification of key technology future trends by CTC and Autodesk, an exploration of gaming technologies for design coordination and review in construction, and the use of drones for aerial capture and the subsequent process to take that data to a design and modeling application. The conference also provided the opportunity to learn about new and updated AEC technology products and services including the suite of Civil Information Modeling tools from CTC, mobile workstations from MSI, how the cloud storage solution Panzura works, and the automated wood and steel framing capabilities of MWF from StrucSoft Solutions.
