Description

Description

Being an AutoCAD® Architecture or AutoCAD® MEP user is like being a younger sibling of a over-achieving brother or sister. However, we've got some tricks up our sleeves and AutoCAD has some tools and features that the Revit® world doesn't have yet. In this hands-on lab, we cover tips for creating and maximizing projects using AutoCAD Architecture, Revit, or plain AutoCAD for MEP design; key features for AutoCAD MEP users that aren't available in Revit MEP; using MEP models for energy analysis and other external applications; and creating custom content quickly for 3D projects. Join us for this information-filled class that helps you be competitive in the BIM world, featuring the longest-tenured MEP modeling product in the Autodesk lineup. And get your hands on some of my tools to help you get started.
