This intermediate-to-advanced hands-on lab offers AutoCAD 3D software veterans and 2D users a chance to explore 2D model documentation of 3D models from AutoCAD 2015 software and Inventor 2015 software. Create base views and projected views from 3D models. Learn to edit the 3D models, update the derived drawing views, add dimensions to the drawing views, and modify the 3D model to update the dimensions. Are commands such as Flatshot, Solview, Soldraw, and Solproj superseded? Come find out. In this class we also explore the EXPORTLAYOUT command for exporting a layout that contains drawing views to model space. If you've used AutoCAD 3D software in the past or you are new to 3D but have a good 2D background, attend this lab and get ready to be surprised.

Making software users as productive as possible is mission critical to a company's success. In this session we will discuss how performance affects productivity and learn how to select the proper workstation hardware and software to maximize performance. A specific discussion on the AutoCAD 2015 productivity study will be presented as well as other performance gains for Autodesk products. We will also show you how to measure performance and optimize your systems based on results using the Dell Performance Optimizer. Specific recommendations will be provided for major Autodesk products.
Factory asset development is critical to successful implementations of Factory Design Suite. This class will teach you absolutely everything you need to know in order to create, manage, and share assets. From reusing your current AutoCAD software data to using data from reality capture, we'll show you how to make it all usable in the layout environment.
