OWINGS MILLS, MD, Nov 14, 2017 – ASCENT- Center for Technical Knowledge will reveal three brand new titles as well as showcase their Autodesk 2018 Learning Guides at booth D316 at Autodesk University 2017 (AU 2017). The new titles, Autodesk Fusion 360 Introduction to Sculpting with T-Spline Surfaces, Autodesk BIM 360 Glue User Fundamentals and Autodesk Revit 2018.1 for Landscape Architecture, will be available for viewing in eBook format. ASCENT will also offer booth visitors a 25% discount code for ASCENT learning materials up until Dec. 31, 2017.
“Working closely with both Autodesk and engineering professionals in architecture, manufacturing, construction and infrastructure, our team understands the role that quality learning resources play in allowing firms to adopt the latest 3D design tools such as Fusion 360 and BIM 360,” says Paul Burden, director of product development, ASCENT. “Through demonstrations and practical hands-on exercises, our courseware helps engineers and designers hone their software skills and drive professional development.”
In addition to browsing ASCENT’s Autodesk 2018 courseware catalogue and new titles, visitors to the ASCENT booth (D316) can check out ASCENT’s new 8.5 by 7 inch printed Learning Guides. While the page count and content of the books remains the same, the reduced size increases portability for use in the office, the classroom or on the project site. And with a 36 percent reduction in the amount of paper used to print each book, they are also more environmentally friendly.
