Easier Collaboration

AUGIWorld devotes one issue every year to collaboration, and for good reason. Now everyone agrees that it’s vital for disciplines to work effectively together, but how to go about it? This year’s focus on the topic revisits techniques for effective collaboration and introduces some new tools designed to make collaboration easier.

Collaboration in the Cloud,” by Shaun Bryant, discusses advances from Autodesk that are making it easy for users to collaborate.

In “Online Collaboration for 3ds Max Users,” Brian Chapman highlights four websites that foster collaboration among 3ds Max users around the globe.

There’s much more in the August 2018 issue on collaboration and other topics. Enjoy!
