At an exclusive media event, Trimble revealed the future of engineering with Microsoft HoloLens running on their Trimble Connect software. This proof-of-concept demonstration was a result of their collaboration with Microsoft to showcase the potential of using holographic technology in the construction industry. Let’s check it out!
Trimble & Tekla Software Solutions
The Trimble Structures Division’s Director of Engineering, Barry Chapman, gave us a quick overview of Trimble, and the new advances in their Tekla software solutions.
Microsoft HoloLens Demonstration
Now we get to see the actual demonstration of an actual Microsoft HoloLens running on a beta version of the Trimble Connect software. Check out how it works!
Tekla Structural Designer (TSD) 2016i
Tekla Structural Designer is a revolutionary software that gives engineers the power to analyse and design buildings efficiently and profitably. Unlike traditional analysis software, TSD allows users to create physical, information-rich models that contain all the intelligence needed to fully automate the design and manage project changes.
TSD 2016i is the latest version of the product from Trimble to be launched and is now available in Malaysia. It is stable, efficient and a continuously improving software for structural engineering. The new version offers improved foundation design, enhanced seismic design and also numerous other improvements.
For Malaysia, this includes a new seismic design wizard to assist Malaysian engineers establish the seismic forces on a structure quickly and easily.
Trimble was founded in 1978 by ex-HP engineer, Charlie Trimble, with a focus on global positioning systems. Now headquartered in Silicon Valley, Trimble operates in over 150 countries with more than 8,000 employees.
In 2011, Trimble acquired Tekla, a Finnish developer of Building Information Modelling (BIM) software. They have since integrated Tekla’s BIM software with their project management and construction solutions.
