March 2021 Update

8 March 2021: Empower your team to connect and collaborate—use Microsoft Teams

As COVID-19 continues to keep people working remotely, it’s becoming increasingly important to help your team feel connected. With isolation, social distancing, and stay at home mandates, it’s easy for individuals to start to feel disconnected and discouraged. Giving your team the resources to stay connected can help. Microsoft Teams can be one of those resources.

Not only can Teams help you continue to run your business as smoothly as possible during this challenging and uncertain time, it can also bring your team together. With features like one-on-one chats or instant group messages, colleagues can easily keep in touch—making up for the missed watercooler conversations. Meetings can also run smoothly with sharing features and chat windows so everyone can be included. Collaboration is also made easy on Teams where multiple people can work together on a single project. To get another overview of the Teams features, join us on this complimentary workshop coming soon on the 24th March 2021 at 10am to 11am.

5 March 2021: A Smoother Experience, Access to More Features in Transoft AutoTURN

In March, AutoTURN for Revit will be replaced by a brand new product - AutoTURN Online Integrated, providing users with an improved experience. This will be a new way for users to analyse vehicle turn movements and circulation in Revit projects, via an integrated online app.

The new plug-in will connect directly to AutoTURN Online within Autodesk® Revit® to ensure convenient access anywhere, anytime with available internet connection.

A smoother experience with access to more features:

  • Save time and effort: You won't need to pre-draw the intended path for vehicles. ATO Integrated will let you 'drive' the vehicle using your mouse to produce forward and reverse maneuvers
  • With ATO Integrated, you will soon get access to over 300 manufacturer-based vehicles on top of the 500 standard vehicles that you currently receive with AutoTURN Revit
  • Realistic vehicles in plan view: Improve the look of your presentations with the detailed vehicle display

Starting on January 31, 2021, all showcases you’ve created, including any related statistics, will no longer be available. However, the files within your showcases exist within your Dropbox account, so you won’t lose access to them.

Dropbox created three tools to help bring Showcase functionality to any of your files:

  • Dropbox Transfer lets you easily and securely send large files and collections of files to anyone and confirm delivery
  • Branded sharing lets you present files with your logo, company name, and a background image
  • Traffic and insights allow you to see who’s visited your links, when they were accessed, and more details (available with Dropbox Professional, Education, Business Advanced, and Enterprise)

Individuals on a team account can reach out to their admins with questions about access to these tools.

Introducing the next generation of Mac

11 November 2020 : A new MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac mini powered by M1, Apple’s breakthrough chip for the Mac

Apple just introduced the first Apple silicon chip made for Mac - the M1 Chip; this is the first chip in a family of chips that will transform every Mac into a completely different class of product. This transition to our own world-class SOC will allow us to deliver industry-leading performance.

  1. Performance! World’s fastest CPU Core & the World’s most powerful integrated graphics!
  2. Power efficiency! World’s best CPU performance per watt! The M1 chip only needs 25% of the power to achieve the same CPU performance as the latest Intel Gen 11 chip.
  3. Literally overnight, the Mac now has the largest library of apps ever. It now runs iOS/iPadOS apps too!

MacBook Air: A Thin and Light Powerhouse

  • The powerful 8-core CPU performs up to 3.5x faster than the previous generation.
  • Up to an 8-core GPU, graphics are up to 5x faster, the biggest leap ever for MacBook Air
  • The M1 chip’s storage controller and latest flash technology deliver up to 2x faster SSD performance
  • With the industry-leading power efficiency of M1, MacBook Air also delivers this performance in a fanless design, which means no matter what users are doing, it remains completely silent.
  • The new MacBook Air features extraordinary battery life, with up to 15 hours of wireless web browsing and up to 18 hours of video playback — the longest battery life ever on a MacBook Air.

13-inch MacBook Pro: Even More Powerful and Even More Pro

  • The 8-core CPU, when paired with the MacBook Pro’s active cooling system, is up to 2.8x faster than the previous generation
  • The 8-core GPU is up to 5x faster, allowing users to enjoy super smooth graphics performance.
  • With M1, the 13-inch MacBook Pro is up to 3x faster than the best-selling Windows laptop in its class
  • ML is up to 11x faster, and for on-device ML tasks that use the Neural Engine, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro is now the world’s fastest compact pro notebook
  • With up to 17 hours of wireless web browsing and up to a staggering 20 hours of video playback, MacBook Pro delivers up to twice the battery life of the previous generation and the longest battery life ever on a Mac
  • The new 13-inch MacBook Pro include studio-quality mics for super clear recordings and calls, and Apple’s latest camera ISP in the M1 chip enables sharper images and more detail in shadows and highlights on video calls.

Mac mini: Staggering Performance and an Ultracompact Design

  • M1 brings an 8-core CPU with up to 3x faster performance than the previous generation, dramatically accelerating demanding workloads
  • An 8-core GPU delivers up to a massive 6x increase in graphics performance
  • ML workloads also take a quantum leap forward with up to 15x faster performance over the previous generation
