Earth Day 2010!!!

Happy Earth Day! In honor of Earth Day and a more sustainable future, join U.S. CAD and IES-VE for a webinar on April 30th to see how you can help design a more sustainable future! Some of the topics covered will be:
***Analysis using the toolkits showing assessments of climate, water use, energy, loads, solar shading and daylighting.
***Early stage compliance with LEED rating systems including NC V3 2009, schools and Core and Shell for water use, daylighting, comfort and LZCT
***VE Pro – including the Arch suites – our most detailed level of software, allowing for the highest level of customisation on the inputs and graphic rich on the outputs – includes capability for model building, solar shading, electric and daylighting design and analysis and overall energy performance integrating daylight dimming, loads, energy, natural ventilation, HVAC system modelling, and CFD of both mechanical and passive systems.

For more info, please contact U.S. CAD at as seating is limited!

Downloading Autodesk 2011 products

I have been hearing multiple reports of Internet Explorer 8 preventing individuals from downloading 2011 products from Autodesk's website using the download manager. I have not had any issues downloading. I use the latest version of Mozilla's Firefox. I have also heard many others have had success with Firefox and a few other open source browsers such as Chrome or Safari. I haven't tested with these other apps though. The problem seems to be tied to Windows 7 and 32 or 64 bit OS platforms, however it's likely to be affected in other OS platforms too. So if you have only used IE up to this point, consider this motivation to try another browser out. If your IT department prevents you from installing other software, you have my deepest sympathies!
