Company to feature both Autodesk and in-house experts at upcoming product launch seminars
March 26, 2010 - Mt. Zion, IL – Hagerman & Company, Inc., one of America’s largest value-added resellers of Autodesk software, today announced it will offer the Autodesk 2011 software portfolio for the manufacturing, building and construction, and media and entertainment markets . Hagerman & Company will host a series of launch events and webcasts from April 27 to June 10 to highlight these latest offerings from Autodesk. Several of the in-person events will feature presentations by well-known Autodesk experts including Lynn Allen, Heidi Hewett, Daryl Corelli and Amy Fietkau, as well as Hagerman & Company’s technical staff.
“The upcoming Hagerman & Company launch events are an excellent opportunity for our customers to connect with some of the best minds in the CAD industry, including Autodesk and our own in-house experts,” said Hagerman & Company CEO Dennis Hagerman. “The events allow us to introduce the latest innovations in the products we sell to our large customer base.”
The 2011 versions of the AutoCAD products include AutoCAD 2011, a leading 2D and 3D design and documentation platform, and AutoCAD LT 2011 software for professional 2D drafting and detailing. The latest release of AutoCAD delivers powerful new features — such as new tools for surface modeling and support for point cloud — that can help designers further explore their ideas and maximize their productivity.
“In the 2011 releases we have continued to invest in increasing drafting productivity and have added a strong set of new 3D modeling features for conceptual design that will help millions of AutoCAD users worldwide take their designs further,” said Guri Stark, vice president, AutoCAD and Platform Products. “We have also implemented many of the top features requested by Autodesk User Group International (AUGI) members and focused on providing new tools that are quick to learn but can have a big impact in everyday work.”
Digital Prototyping with Autodesk Inventor software gives manufacturers the ability to digitally design, visualize and simulate how a product will work under real world conditions before it is built. Digital Prototyping reduces reliance on physical prototypes, which helps reduce cost and speed time to market in highly competitive industries.
“Autodesk Inventor 2011 leads the 3D CAD industry with Digital Prototyping tools that help manufacturers design better products, reduce development costs, and get to market faster,” said Amy Bunszel, senior director, Digital Engineering, Autodesk Manufacturing Industry Group. “Designers and engineers can expect dramatic usability and productivity gains across our entire 2011 manufacturing software portfolio.”
The Autodesk 2011 software portfolio is designed to help increase industry adoption of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process, facilitate multidisciplinary collaboration and address new and renovation projects. “The building design, construction and infrastructure industries must improve productivity, while at the same time completing complex projects on time and at, or under budget,” said Jay Bhatt, senior vice president of AEC Industry Solutions. “Our new 2011 software helps support that goal by capitalizing on the enormous benefits of Building Information Modeling, and facilitating multidisciplinary collaboration from start to finish for everything from new construction and renovations on residential and business projects to large-scale infrastructure and government projects.”
