Dynamic shifts have emerged in the digital realm of building design and physical methods of off-site fabrication. Buildings are increasingly manufactured/assembled rather than constructed/crafted. This class will present these digital procedures for modelling buildings in Revit whilst simultaneously assembling and managing your building components through Dynamo and into Inventor for fabrication. This entails navigating a hierarchy of linked/nested Revit models, families, and formulas; aligning the design BIM with detailed fabrication models in Inventor. Dynamo will be applied as a tool to automate, annotate, and design the building layout with assembled components. Orchestrate the building model, drawing sets, and work instructions in Revit alongside Dynamo to lay out building components, visualise building data, component relationships, and simultaneously assemble Revit components for building site context, component assembly in factory layout, and final modules in transportation.
This class will discuss the details on how to select the right CPU, GPU, Memory and storage for optimal performance. We will review the latest technology available in workstation hardware as well as benchmarks and specific recommendations for Autodesk products. How to justify the right workstation for your engineering team including ROI will be discussed.<br/>The Dell Precision Optimizer, a tool that helps user maintain, analyze and optimize Dell workstations, will be introduced.
With the industry changing at such a rapid pace, it was important for Multipond to move from using Autodesk Inventor Professional to the Factory Design Suite and future-proof the design process, in line with the future of manufacturing approach. This presentation will go through why and how Multipond’s UK project manager implemented Factory Design Suite into the business with their already complex Multihead Weighing series production lines. Multipond's Steve Sutherland will take the class through an in-depth, firsthand look at how Factory has impacted the Multipond design process, followed by a workflow presentation by Marc Pattinson covering Factory layouts and Navisworks using the Multipond completed dataset.
The purpose of this class is to present an end-to-end workflow for generative and lattice design in the Automotive and Aerospace industry, using software and technology from Autodesk, Inc. At this moment in time, Autodesk is the only technology innovator that offers this unique capability—using their advanced software technology—for design, simulation, generative design (topology, skin, and lattice optimization), build simulation, build preparation, and advanced manufacturing methods. The class will demonstrate step by step the process involved in taking a component through design, simulation, optimization, build preparation, build simulation, post-build verification, and finishing. The class will educate attendees who wish to learn about the processes and challenges involved in additive design, lost-PLA casting and manufacturing. The software being demonstrated for the workflow includes Fusion 360 and Netfabb. This class will also present some of the challenges and solutions for certification.
Have you ever been in a situation where your Fusion 360 or Inventor model failed, and you don't know why? (I know you have—I have too!) Did you know that your 3D model’s complex shape geometry is calculated by the Autodesk Shape Manager (ASM)? This class is aimed at beginner and intermediate Fusion 360 and Inventor users who want to deepen their knowledge of Fusion's and Inventor’s part modelling tools by understanding how it thinks. We will cover tips and tricks for 3D modelling complex shapes. We will explain how to avoid and overcome modelling practices which give you unexpected results. We will learn how to diagnose unexpected failures in your model and discuss ways to fix them. We hope that you will come away from this class with a clearer idea of how to build stable, robust models with Fusion 360 and Inventor. Come and learn how to improve your modelling skills.
This class will explore the implementation of an efficient workflow for 3D scanning of large plants. From laser scanning at the field until a point cloud, which can be combined with a 2D layout and 3D models, our scan projects count regularly more than 100 scans. These scans are then combined in Navisworks software with a 3D model of a new line generated at our company. During the construction we scan the site to check if the design corresponds with the engineering to predict mistakes. This workflow has been improved on a lot since the start, and this is what we want to teach in this class. This session features ReCap, Inventor Professional, and Navisworks Manage.
The workflow begins in Revit where a building will be prepared for export to Inventor. The prepared view will then be opened in Inventor where it will be populated with true-to-life and actual manufacturable detail. Tools such as the frame generator and sheet metal parts can be used to achieve this. The model will then be wrapped up and published back to the original Revit model via the BIM exchange. COBis parameters may also be added during this process adhering to BIM Level 2 compliancy.
Learn what Model Based Definition (MBD) means from an industry perspective. There are clear indications of adoption of model-based practices in the industry, including the growing popularity of the STEP AP242 standard. A decade in the making, Inventor customers will finally see Model Based Definition (MBD) capabilities in the product. And how! We’ve built the solution on mature, industry-leading technologies integrated seamlessly into Inventor. In this session, we will review the full set of capabilities that customers will be able to use to reduce their dependence on 2D drawings and digitize their design-to-manufacturing processes.
Autodesk Inventor Presentation environment has been redesigned in Inventor 2017. The new timeline based workflows and snapshot views allow you to easily control exploded views, assemble animations and viewports so you can get the exact views you need for your technical documentation. This class will also cover best practices to speedup the workflow.
Autodesk Factory Design Utilities is an integrated layout and optimisation solution built specifically to help you design and communicate the most efficient layout by creating a digital model of your factory or other types of layout. Factory Design Utilities is part of the Autodesk Product Design Collection and includes tools for optimising 2D layouts, integrating 2D layout data with 3D models and facility components and creating 3D layout models with bidirectional 2D/3D associativity.
IQL will show how there are different ways of working/interacting with the built environment and explain the integrated project delivery: client, project manager, and main contractor being 1 team with the same goal approach. We'll explain how we developed a strategy, managed the design, and delivered from concept design to project handover using different digital technologies at different stages. This class will demonstrate how we've created a strategy and EIR for a project that will run for the next 8 years and which will attract future tenants. We’ll show this from a project management point of view: management of the design stakeholders, management of design, BIM for master planning, quantification, the use of BIM for visualisation/VR, and BIM as a product to attract tenants. From a construction management view, we'll demonstrate trade design coordination, supply chain management/education, BIM on-site, 4D sequencing and construction optimisation, and BIM use for tenant engagement.
Learn how, through the use of the Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle platform, manufacturing companies are able to manage their BoM in a single, secure environment. Hear how this will help you to collaborate more effectively within your own organisation and with external third parties. Starting with the Inventor BoM we will demonstrate how it can be quickly and accurately published to Fusion Lifecycle and how we can then review or modify the BoM, compare it with previous versions, and submit it for approval before release to your ERP system. We will demonstrate how, through the use of third party tools, you can create a fully connected end-to-end solution and eliminate the errors and cost associated with manual data entry. This session features Autodesk’s Fusion Lifecycle (formerly PLM 360) solution.
