U.S. CAD, the Western U.S.'s largest provider of computer-aided design (CAD) services and products, and its largest Autodesk solutions reseller, will host the fourth annual Southern California CAD Summit Thursday, Sept. 25, 2008, at the San Diego Convention Center. Each year SCCS attracts hundreds of participants from the Western region's architectural, civil, manufacturing, geospatial and building engineering fields to learn about the latest Autodesk technologies and fine-tune their skills.
This year's conference, themed "Come Together: Integrating Data Across the Extended Design Team," will feature more than 45 classes focusing on emerging technologies in such areas as Building Information Modeling (BIM), sustainable or "green" building design and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). Classes will spotlight the latest Autodesk software solutions and be taught by U.S. CAD's team of Autodesk Certified Instructors. The event will begin at 7:30 a.m. (classes start at 8:30 a.m.) and continue until 5:15 p.m.
