We kick off 2024 with a bumper edition of AEC Magazine, where we gaze into our crystal ball for the future of BIM, explain how to best use 3D renderings in architectural portfolios, report on Rhino’s new push pull modelling capabilities, and lots, lots more.
The new edition also includes our annual Workstation Special Report with over 40 pages dedicated to the very latest workstation technology for AEC workflows.
It’s available to view now, free, along with all our back issues.
Subscribe to the digital edition free + all the latest AEC technology news in your inbox, or take out a print subscription for $49 per year (free to UK AEC professionals).
