The Wounded Artist Project
Wounded Artist Project - April 7, 2010 The Wounded Artist Project is pleased to report that Autodesk is now including veterans in its Assistance Program which offers free educational licenses of their software. We had contacted Autodesk for support for a short YouTube video we are doing about Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. They liked what we were doing and offered to open up the program to vets.
This program started out with over 17 different products being offered to unemployed workers who wanted to learn new software in these areas:
Autodesk reports that more than 17,000 unemployed people worldwide have signed up for the program.
Enrollment in the Autodesk Assistance Program and software download availability runs through January 31st, 2011. The program offers:

The Wounded Artist Project was particularly interested in the architecture suite of software which includes Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools such as Autodesk Revit Architecture software. BIM software creates a dynamic model of a building which is used during construction but is also a valuable reference for the owners and operators of the building over the course of the building’s life.
For those disabled vets who like perspective drawing or are interested in architecture and urban planning this might become a good home-based career as a detailer or designer. A vet could create a service-disabled, veteran-owned business (SDVOB) and work with architectural firms who outsource their BIM, we’ve heard from a couple of sources as far away as India.
