In today's complex and fast-paced Digital Prototyping world, architects and engineers need to share data and workflows between Building Information Modeling (BIM) systems and engineering and manufacturing systems. Part families and members defined and managed in the intelligent model need to be passed to engineering to drive detailed modeling, analysis, and ultimately, manufacturing. Likewise, vendors supplying engineered systems to the buildings need to provide their detailed engineering models and data in usable and efficient formats for inclusion in intelligent models. With Autodesk products, you can capture and automate these workflows that are critical success factors in today's large multidisciplinary projects. In this class, you learn about architectures and tools for implementing and automating these workflows and for seamlessly bridging the gap between BIM, engineering, and manufacturing.
Anyone who is interested in the flow of information between BIM tools,
such as Revit,
and engineering and manufacturing tools,
such as Inventor
Neil Lee has been a software developer for over 30 years. The last 12 of these have been spent working exclusively with Autodesk's ETO (engineer-to-order) rules based technology. His UK based company has implemented ETO within a diverse range of AEC companies in industries such as pre-cast concrete, structural steel and building cladding. He has also used ETO to assist construction firms in delivering large projects such as airport terminals and hospitals. You can reach Neil at email@example.com

Inventor® software can be a great tool to create detailed models of various equipment that can be used in the building design industry. Revit®-based software can be a great tool to convey the design intent of different types of building design systems. Previously, if a detailed component was modeled in Inventor, there was no easy way to bring that model into Revit without losing the intelligence behind the model. Using the new Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools inside Inventor, you can now prepare your model for export to Revit and control the parameters that go into Revit. You can further control and flex the model inside Revit, thereby retaining the intelligence of your models. In this hands-on lab, we explore this new and exciting functionality to teach you how to move models from Inventor to Revit while retaining the intelligence behind them.
