The Books keep Rolling Out

Just when one book gets done and is introduced, here comes another. This one was the fruit of working with Autodesk over the last 5 months on a product which I am a bit less familiar with. The book Autodesk Architecture 2008 - AutoCAD for Architects is now available, you will probably be able to find in on the Autodesk e-store in a couple of days (maybe a bit of wishful thinking).... I'll get images up here when I get my own copy.

This is a short book, and is meant to get people started with ACA (AutoCAD Achitecture). Covers the UI, the Project Manager, Walls, Doors & Windows, Spaces, Schedules and Detail creation. Kristen Smith, an ADT specialist was the technical expert who contributed her knowledge and a interesting building design to the courseware.

I hope you can get a copy and enjoy. If you are under subscription with Autodesk for ADT and ACA, the there is an e-learning course which covers everything extept Spaces and Schedules.

Well here it is a final hard copy of the book both Jamie and I have worked on since last May. It is looking really great. Full color, lots of illustrations.

Here is a sample of the interior pages of the book. I'll post some high res photos of the inside of the book for you to see, shortly.

New Book Coming out soon

It finally happenned, Realistic Architectural Rendering with 3ds max and mental Ray is coming out. Publication date is listed on most major websites as April 15, 2007. I had my hands on an author copy this week but gave it up to the people at Autodesk M&E in Montreal, to show around. Alas, I can't post a picture of the book.

I really like how it has turned out, looks fantastic in full color. plenty of images take advantage of that fact. If you want to see how it looks try amazon's site and do a search on "Roger Cusson". Prices seem to vary a bit from one online retailer to another, so shop around.
