Autodesk, Inc., a world leader in 2D and 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, has announced the acquisition of certain assets from BOSS International, Inc. to further expand its water resources analysis capabilities for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. StormNET for stormwater management analysis, RiverCAD for floodplain analysis, and WaterNET for water distribution analysis will be more closely integrated with Autodesk’s model-based design solutions, including AutoCAD Civil 3D, to help engineers streamline workflows, reduce errors and boost productivity.
The deal by AutoDesk sounds exiting. In the past few months I was straggling to export a very large water network from AutoCAD to EPANet. I know that most of the water simulation packages today do have an interface to AutoCAD but when it is integrated by AutoDesk it should work even better.
