Jed Fisher's insight:

Another predicitons has come true (I'm getting good at these, even if i do say so myself!). 4Projects has been acquired by Viewpoint Construction Software.

Great move by both companies IMHO.

4Projects have been building their SaaS based BIM platform with it's relational server database for sometime (since 2000). They seem to have gotten quite far with it; now their team of 61 employees will join the large Viewpoint team and their software will likely gain a strong channel being opened up to Viewpoints install base of over 40,000 unique monthly users.

Autodesk continues its investment in Reality Capture; other recent acquisitions include Alice Labs and RealViz. Autodesk defines Reality Capture as the practice of creating digital models of physical objects and spaces using photography, laser scanning, and other technologies.

Allpoint brings several significant pieces of the puzzle to Autodesk, including large-scale 3D scan data registration, an area of significant research focus but little commercial application.

Virtual and reality keep getting closer
