The reinforced concrete industry needs to find an easy-to-apply and complete Building Information Modeling (BIM)-ready fabrication workflow to link together the engineers, contractors, and fabricators. The objective is to streamline the BIM workflow to make this communication possible and provide huge productivity and safety ratio improvements. Come and see how GRAITEC’s 3D rebar design tools and Revit software and Autodesk 360 cloud-computing platform can help you produce 3D rebar ready for fabrication, as well as enable collaboration—including drawings, bar schedules, and quantities, published to the Autodesk 360 cloud system.
Autodesk, Inc.'s, cloud services change names more often than some people change their socks. As such, these services can be rather confusing. Despite their malleable call signs, these cloud tools can have dramatic impacts on your workflow. We will focus on 2 specific services in this class, namely the Autodesk 360 cloud-computing platform and the AutoCAD 360 web app. We will look at the history of these services as well as their feature sets, creating and utilizing accounts and where these services can impact your workflow.
Are you wondering how to use Autodesk A360 Team and what to do to get the most out of it? Have you started a new project with a new team? Are you wondering how to effectively communicate and collaborate with the team? Some of the challenges encountered with a new project are getting the right people the information they need and how to communicate to the new Project Team. This presentation will discuss Autodesk A360 Team and the difference between roles, each role’s capacity, and the management of those roles. Laying the foundation for cross collaboration in your project will help get the job done faster, eliminate having data scattered in various tools, and make your project a success.
On every type of project, the adoption of a transparent and easy-to-apply Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow is the key to success. This also helps reduce the risk of errors and it provides huge productivity ratio improvements while making the design and engineering processes more efficient. To reach this objective, the engineer and the technicians, using Revit Structure software, need tools capable of automating 3D rebar generation (including semi-automated detailed drawings and schedules), but with the ability to make design-driven decisions for the reinforced concrete members in real time. In this class you will learn how GRAITEC’s Revit-software-based 3D rebar design tools deliver real benefits by consolidating design decisions based on local codes to accurately create 3D rebar in Revit software on the fly with localized families. These tools also produce automatic reinforcement drawings and schedules, published to the cloud or through Autodesk 360 cloud-computing platform ready for fabrication by the rebar manufacturer.
As BIM adoption expands globally, we will see more firms start to work together with distributed team across geographies. This trend is driving teams to search for new ways to collaborate more effectively.
This presentation will provide an in-depth discussion of fabrication and Level Of Development (LOD) from the 2015 Associated General Contractors (AGC) Building Information Modeling (BIM) Forum LOD Specification. It will address model elements at the different stages in a building lifecycle: design, construction, and ownership. The framework of the discussion will consider the LOD Specification that defines models on a scale of 100 to 500 with a particular focus of LOD 350, which the speaker originally authored and introduced to the LOD Specification committee. The content will discuss how architects, mechanical engineers, construction managers, subcontractors, and fabricators use structural element models. This will demonstrate how you can use the newly issued LOD Specification to define team expectations of what should be modeled. We will show practical examples of model detail issues, along with effective approaches to resolve the challenges using the LOD Specification as an early BIM planning tool.
If you’ve considered using cloud services but can’t find answers to questions like, “How do I ensure that nobody, not even service provider’s staff can access my data?” “Who has the encryption keys?” “How is the data destroyed after use?” this class is for you. The focus of this class will be to understand and summarize your concerns about security of moving data to the cloud and adoption of new Autodesk, Inc., services. We will discuss potential scenarios/options that could address your concerns. No service can guarantee total security and protection, and there is no “silver bullet” addressing all potential security concerns. In the class we will try to define what you can do with Autodesk to demonstrate that Autodesk 360 cloud services are secure and ready for sensitive workloads that require a higher standard of encryption.
Wie können beliebige 2D und 3D Modelle in einer Webseite angezeigt werden? Wir haben fantastische 3D Modelle erzeugt, und sind frustriert, dass alles im Web nur 2D angezeigt wird. Jetzt nicht mehr! Nun können sehr leicht eindrückliche, interaktive, intelligente Modelle in alle Webseiten, Web- und Desktop Applikationen eingebunden werden. Wir zeigen Beispiele in verschiedenen Umgebungen.
Get the inside scoop on the Autodesk Cloud from Autodesk VP Amy Bunszel. What do we mean by SAAS, PAAS, IAAS and how do our popular applications - A360 and AutoCAD 360 play into our overall cloud strategy and why should you care.
Sir John’s Soane’s Bank of England (built from 1788 to 1833) was destroyed in the 1920 in what is considered by some architectural historians to be the greatest modern architectural travesty. Today, Soane’s Bank of England is revered by architects worldwide for its spectacular use of natural lighting and mesmerizing effects of scale, and inspires the neoclassical architectural approach of Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA). Autodesk, HP, and NVIDIA® have joined forces with RAMSA, CASE, CG Architect, and Sir John Soane Museum to engage the world’s architects to help recreate Soane’s Bank of England in BIM, in the first crowdsourcing project of its kind. Shaun Frazier, Paul Aubin, and Lindsey DuBosar will discuss the approach to modelling classical architecture with Revit, and how technologies from HP, NVIDIA, and Autodesk are enabling global BIM collaboration. Please join to learn more about The Soane Project, and how you can contribute.
As a designer you need to perform on the fast track. What would you do if you had a very intuitive user-friendly interface? If you need or want a simplified high-performance workflow at several project phases, this session is for you. We’re going to see together how technology has impacted design in a big way. We will see FormIt software in action during client meetings or being used for highly collaborative communication with others internally or externally. You will learn about different approaches and best practices for using FormIt software as an early part of your design processes. At the end of this session you’ll be able to craft a successful plan for design goals.
