With so many different software products installed with Factory Design Suite, it is hard for a user to know where to start. This class demonstrates the entire workflow of Factory Design Suite. We cover how to use Autodesk® 360 cloud service to quickly get 2D layout data from a sales engineer at a client site and return a completed 3D layout that is in sync with the 2D layout. We cover, in detail, new Revit®-based software interoperability that enables data to be transferred to Inventor® software for completion of factory layouts from concept to finish.
Factory layout designers who want to learn a Factory Design Suite workflow that reduces errors and improves efficiency and visualization,
and architects who design factory buildings and layouts

We've all seen the benefit of working in 3D—and have also seen how Factory Design Suite software helps us get to 3D in facilities design. Now that we have the information modeled, what happens next? Factory Design Suite models are more than just pretty 3D pictures. They can be the visual front end for accessing tremendous amounts of rich and valuable information for downstream application, such as preventive and predictive maintenance, machine tool specification, and cost estimating for design and setup of new lines. This class shows how Factory Design Suite can interact with the PLM 360 cloud service to make a powerful, yet easy-to-implement set of tools that reach across your enterprise.
