MADISON, Wis. — MasterGraphics, design process experts and leading Midwest supplier of design data solutions for the manufacturing, building and civil engineering industries, unveiled its launch schedule today for the Autodesk 2010 Software Portfolio for Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Sustainable Design.

Led by experienced MasterGraphics instruction professionals, the seminars provide architecture and engineering professionals with in-depth exposure to the most current Autodesk software. The MasterGraphics Solutions Seminars will begin on April 23 and run through May 7, 2009, in Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Autodesk’s 2010 software portfolio for BIM and Sustainable Design will help enable building designers, engineers, contractors and the clients they serve to more easily create and profit from digital design data, as well as enable better communication across extended project teams.
