Applied Software at Autodesk University
Applied Software is proud to be teaching a myriad of classes at Autodesk University 2018! In just over a month, our certified instructors will invade Las Vegas looking to spread their knowledge to the masses. View and sign up for some of the great classes we are offering below:
The Plant Expert Q & A provides you an opportunity to quiz product experts on implementation, configuration, and user questions. The panel has a wealth of product and industry knowledge to help you stay on track with using Plant 3D.
Every project begins with an idea. How fast can you go from that idea to a preliminary layout of a road with visualization? Join me in this class to see how you can create a model of the existing conditions, layout the initial roadway alignment, adjust the elevations of the roadway, adjust the cross section of your roadway, visualize the idea, and share it with anyone that you want.
OK, not really. While losing one’s job due to not following best practices for using Revit software would be a bit draconian, life can become unnecessarily frustrating and stressful when your models are bloated, corrupt, and difficult to navigate. This class will point out common errors that even experienced Revit users make, and offer ways to avoid them to keep file sizes small, data integrity intact, and life much less stressful. We will also offer productivity tips that are easy to implement but powerful.
A good model is important in a BIM (Building Information Modeling) workflow, and equally important is generating a good set of construction documents, complete with detail drawings. After mastering basic modeling in Revit software, many users hit the wall and struggle with this vital aspect of project delivery. This hands-on lab will teach you how to bridge the gap between modeling and detailing, taking full advantage of the 3D model and adding 2D embellishments combined with display modification to create your construction details.
Regardless of an organization’s size, implementing technologies such as Revit software, Navisworks software, and all of the other BIM (Building Information Modeling)-supporting products and tools requires more than just taking a class and investing in the software. It requires commitment, patience, a knowledgeable resource for ongoing assistance, buy-in and proactive support from upper management—and most importantly, a plan. This session will describe proven techniques for developing and executing a BIM implementation, and will provide case studies of implementations that the presenter has facilitated, for both members of the design community and facility owners and operators.
In the spring of 2018, Autodesk introduced BIM 360 Design software, based on the Forge platform, and BIM 360 Document Management. While users still have access to the legacy BIM 360 Team technology, BIM 360 Design provides enhanced collaboration workflows, greater control over file permissions, and much tighter integration with BIM 360 Docs software for use in “downstream” collaboration workflows during a project’s post design phases. This class will focus on the enhanced workflows possible with Design Collaboration and Revit cloud collaboration, and will cover project setup, teams and permissions, and the use of packages to effectively control when others have access to your data and when data from other teams is updated in your model. We will also look at common troubleshooting techniques and BIM 360 site setup.
