First, I apologize if I am overstepping any boundaries by posting this here, but I couldn't think of a better place to reach out to numerous staff members and users of Lumion. I am a Construction Management student at Arizona State University who is participating in a national competition that takes place every year in Reno, NV. Multiple problem statements exist, but I am the Captain of the Design-Build team. For the competition, we are given an actual Request for Proposal, and we are then given 15 hours to develop a full proposal (design, estimate, risk analysis, etc.), have the night to prepare our presentation and then are required to present on our proposal the next day. Last year I was a member of the team as well and we were able to capture third place. I acknowledge that our design, and more than anything our design presentation were our weakest part. Knowing I would captain the team for the next competition I immediately started looking for ways to improve that shortcoming. I found Lumion 3d and have been obsessing ever since. I would love nothing more than to have this software so that our Architecture student on the team can properly prepare his for presentation and blow the judges and 100+ people in the audience away. I should point out, that every person present in the industry is currently working in the industry, many of which work for Design-Build firms or contractors whose predominant delivery method is Design-Build. I was curious if there was anyway someone on the board could direct me to someone who may be willing to allow us access to two licenses, or if some staff members could tell me who to go about contacting about licensing donations. I know education licenses are available, but I'm not sure how we would be able to use those given that we must travel for the competition. Any help you guys can offer would be incredibly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
