Its not that that the Fusion 360 user interface and user experience (UI and UX) were poor, just that there is always room for improvement as more and... Continue reading

The Revit BIM model was created based on measurements taken manually and then all the engineering based on that model which means they were wrong too. I mean this how we... Continue reading
