Autodesk Project Twitch

This is not breaking news to many of you but I figured I would post on it. I received an email from a fellow student who said that his main computer crashed and he needed to use Revit at home. Sounded like a perfect job for Project Twitch.

OVERVIEW

Welcome to Project Twitch! This project is testing remote delivery of our applications over the Internet. The goal of project Twitch is to enable you to test and try the latest versions of AutoCAD, Revit, Inventor, and Maya without having to install or download the applications. These applications run remotely on our servers and are delivered to you over the Internet. You will use them in the same way that you would if they were on installed on your system.

FEATURES NOT SUPPORTED TODAY

As a technology preview, there are currently several limitations with the service.

  • No ability to upload, download, or save files. To make it easier to try out the application, we have loaded a number of sample files that will allow you to interact with complex drawings.
  • No ability to load or keep any customizations that you create .
  • Access is limited to users that have hardware and network connections capable of supporting the service
This, of course, is limited. The day they allow you to save on your machine or a server this will take off! For now, those of you wanting to TRY Revit and not wanting to install it or able to install it can go right ahead...
