IMAGINiT’s Ken Flannigan has a blog and has posted a good piece on Vasari (which just hit a new release). In his words,
With the new Vasari Technology Preview Version 2.5 available free from Autodesk Labs (link to Vasari 2.5 website) I wanted to take a post to point out some of the new improvements as well as to share my general affection for this software.
In this post, he highlights some of the bigger reasons he really likes Vasari, key features like energy modeling, wind tunnel analysis, the radiation tool, modeling, and exporting to FBX. Take a look and let him know what you think!
