New Technologies: Project Nucleus and the New Vasari

Some fantastic new announcements in the Revit community.  First, there will be a new Vasari being released soon (Version 1.1). 

Click here to see a trailer of the new Vasari...

Stay tuned for a post as to when Vasari is released.

Next,  Project Nucleus is live over in the Autodesk Labs... This one you have got to check out. 

Project Nucleus integrates the Nucleus simulation engine from Autodesk® Maya® into Autodesk® Revit® and Project Vasari. It allows designers to experiment with "form-finding" in the conceptual design phase by simulating forces directly in Revit and Project Vasari. (An upcoming technology preview of Project Vasari will include the Project Nucleus functionality.)

Project Nucleus can simulate a wide range of physical phenomena in real time, like wind, gravity, constraints, and collisions. These forces can help architects generate free-form shapes, many of which would be impossible to model by hand.

The technology preview ends on December 31, 2011. Any designs that you create remain valid after that date, but the Project Nucleus add-on will no longer operate when the technology preview terminates.
