IMPACT Precast 2014 User Conference was a success

Nov 21  |  2014

This year's IMPACT Precast User Conference gathered 60 IMPACT users from far and wide that shared knowledge, networked and listened to presentations from the IMPACT team. The event was held at Malmö Arena in Malmö, Sweden and the presentations covered the two branches of IMPACT; IMPACT Design Suite and IMPACT Production Suite.


Business Unit Director Peter Karlsson started the event with a welcome speech and showed a handfull of the new features in IMPACT 14.2. The benefits of IMPACT in the cloud was on the agenda when Area Manager Fredrik Arheden gave insight in using IMPACT in project management as well as product management. 
IMPACT developer Johnny Roos held a live demo of a proof of concept for a IMPACT Revit module and the participants contributed with questions and feedback.


Fredrik Lagerström talked about PRE-Stress 6.4 that is able to calculate fire according to EuroCode EN1992-2, and what differs the 6.4 version from the previous version. He also pointed out that tutorial videos are now online (available here). He also held a talk about FEM-Design Prefab and covered the new software features in a live demo.


A blistering keynote about BIMcontact, a web based project tool for the construction industry was held by Urban Kindström who was the last speaker in the line-up.


After a day full of talks and presentations, the participants could partake in a guided tour of Malmö Arena, a newly built, modern, multi-purpose concert and event venue, and the day concluded with a dinner in downtown Malmö.


We want to thank all the participants and we hope to see you again next year!
