Structural Engineering Analysis in BIM

Human beings are inherently creative. Because of this, structural engineering has existed for as long as we have needed  shelter.  Since the first bundle of twigs were tied together to shield against the rain and wind, this field of study has grown in scope and beauty.  From primitive huts in the rain forests of South America, to the pyramids in Giza, to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, structural engineering has accomplished staggering achievements.

Last year was a nightmare! I teach for DoDEA (Department of Defense Educational Activities) and our 2015 AutoCAD license expired before the end of the school year. Many of my students could not finish their projects!! We will start the year I hope with the newest version 2018. We have moved all the computers to Windows 10 so my lab now sits without any AutoCAD software. They are working on this problem now as school starts Monday Aug. 27th.

With all this shared, I have been teaching with AutoCAD since 2012 and just want to thank you for all that you do for us teachers. I love your product and have many students in the job force using your great software.
Thanks,
