Autodesk Acquires Micro Application Packages Limited
On 21 October, Autodesk announced that it acquired Micro Application Packages Limited (MAP Software), TSI’s development partner of CAD-Duct, CAD-Mech, CAD-Elec, EST-Duct, EST-Mech and CAM-Duct. AMCA believes that this acquisition will have positive impacts on software and workflow solutions being developed to the BIM-MEPAUS standard. The investment decision by Autodesk also re-affirms the BIM-MEPAUS Project Board’s position that BIM must extend beyond design to support activities such as estimation, fabrication, and installation of building services.
