Autodesk Vasari Beta 1 goes Live

Matt Jezyk Sr. Manager for AEC Conceptual Design Products, dropped me an email today with some exciting news.  Due to customer demand, the team are graduating Vasari from Autodesk Labs and are launching a Public Beta on the new site autodeskvasari.com

The Project Vasari Technology Preview has been a very popular project on Autodesk Labs. With more than 60,000 downloads over the last 1 1/2 years it has made a large impact with our professional and educational AEC users and has dramatically exceeded our expectations. This project on Labs has allowed use to test out new ideas quickly and respond to user requests. 

Autodesk Vasari Beta 1 is a slimmed down version of Revit 2013 focusing on conceptual modeling and early analysis. It is meant for architectural designers and energy analysis who are not necessarily using Revit.  The new Beta 1 is file-format compatible with Revit 2013 and also contains all the features from previous versions of Project Vasari. The main new features of Beta 1 are Revit 2013 file-format compatibility, Cloud Rendering and Repeat/Divide features. A less restrictive End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) is also in place to allow firms to further test this pre-release product in their environments. Access to Autodesk 360 Energy Analysis is still available via a free Autodesk ID login. The Beta 1 release will expire on January 31st 2013.
