When a progressive health-care client challenged an integrated project delivery team to look for opportunities to enhance collaboration and meet stringent deadlines on a new hospital project in California, the team started investigating several options to enhance coordination among the different teams' model files. After reviewing the available alternatives, and after careful consideration, the team finally selected Collaboration for Revit cloud service. Collaboration for Revit exceeded the expectations of the team members who were not only co-located at a trailer, but were also dispersed in several offices-including overseas. The team was able to work efficiently without restrictions on firewalls, which also enabled for unique workflows between the design and construction teams. In this class, we'll go over this success story while reviewing the key features of Collaboration for Revit, the selection process, setup, tips/tricks, and known limitations. Additionally, we'll look at how BIM 360 software and Collaboration for Revit were used to enhance change management.

In this session, we'll take a look at a workflow under the Autodesk umbrella to process photos collected with an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). We'll cover best practice workflows, from processing the drone data in ReCap software, taking those results into InfraWorks software for use and further processing, then finally moving them into AutoCAD Civil 3D software. The end result will be a functioning TIN surface inside AutoCAD Civil 3D, as well as a georeferenced orthomosaic.
Prefabrication and automation in offsite construction requires building models to be rich in data. The generation of construction drawings, creation of a bill of materials and the application of fabricated information is required in the model. In wood construction for example, it requires modeling of accurate processing (precutting) and assembly of prefabricated items including tooling (e.g. nailing and milling operations). All this, including derived data in the form of CNC files, shop drawings, etc., needs to be accessible by all stakeholders - the builders, prefabricators and project managers. By combining Autodesk products and APIs, hsbcad has developed improved workflows to create and modify rich model content. Revit content is able to enrich cloud based BIM that drives CNC equipment and improves on site processes. This leads to increased efficiency and cost control for the complete construction process.Joint AU/Forge DevCon class
This class will dig into Revit software with tips and tricks from the low-hanging fruit (symbols, text, and standards) and things to consider (metric, Imperial or soft metric, geographies, and so on). We'll look at using note block content for abbreviation lists and schedules, processing diagrams using custom families, and keynoting. We'll cover assemblies codes, what view templates are and how to use them effectively for consistency from templates forward, sample practices for view naming and browser management in anticipation of exports, and ways of managing work sets in local and linked files to help speed up your system by simply organizing data. We'll also look at how work sets track through links, schema for management, best practices on file sizes, and how to push those limits and possibly a few Dynamo Scripts to assist in management and setups of projects.
Brown University School of Engineering is a true IPD (integrated project delivery) project in the United States. BuroHappold Engineering and KieranTimberlake, along with Shawmut Design and Construction and their trade partners, created a plan that would involve complete live collaboration between all parties utilizing Collaboration for Revit cloud service. This involved all parties working in a live model environment while developing their design. Trade partners would be simultaneously coordinating all building systems in preparation for construction. Developing a seamless transition from design to construction model was an opportunity. The team was able to design in Revit software while creating content that was ready for fabrication. The process continued through construction using BIM 360 Glue software for final conflict resolution and then onto BIM Field 360 software, ensuring coordinated installation of all services. You will learn best practices and optimum setup enabling smooth movement of data from team to team and platform to platform for all project scales.
We all have great Building Information Modeling (BIM) standards we've developed and nurtured for years, but we also realize that technology can only take us so far.

In this interactive lab, we'll learn how to navigate BIM 360 software and become Collaboration for Revit experts. We'll learn how to create collaborative projects, how to invite project contributors, and how to navigate the model in the cloud. Once we create the model, we'll learn how to publish the model for Live Reviews. We'll also review the cloud and mobile capabilities that BIM 360 Team software provides for expanded engagement from all users. We'll also review unique Collaboration for Revit features such as the Communicator, and we'll practice communicating with the project team within Revit software. In addition, we'll review how to effectively manage project contributors versus team members. Finally, we'll review how to troubleshoot with cloud Revit files by reviewing Journal Files. At the end of the class, you will be the new Collaboration for Revit and BIM 360 expert. You will be able to host Revit models to the cloud for projects, communicate with the project team effectively, and invite the team to your projects.
Are you considering a change? Is it time to make a move? Do you have the attitude necessary to use Revit Architecture software? Changes in staff and the way we set about doing our designs may need to be reconsidered. We'll look at many of these issues with the aim of easing your transition. If you already know how objects work in AutoCAD Architecture software and you know how a building is put together, then you're more than halfway home. Revit software will help you continue on your Building Information Modeling (BIM) journey and set yourself up for postdesign use. Don't merely create drawings with your CAD package-create entire building designs.
Custom Tutorials can help you retain tribal knowledge of the tricks your company's developed over years, and then pass that knowledge on to new hires or outsourced resources to ensure your data is built and behaves as expected. This class will show you how to use your very own CAD tools and practices to create written and video tutorials covering those tricks-from everyday basics to those needed once every 6 months. You will learn how to post publicly and privately to the A360 cloud-based collaboration service, and how to share with others.
In the design world, it's not uncommon that key project data is stored in application silos and requires a great deal of manual coordination. Autodesk has taken the first steps for architecture, engineering, and construction projects to make data available to multiple applications at once-by introducing a connected workflow that shares data from schematic diagrams with a Revit project. The Revit P&ID Modeler breaks silos down by letting the user begin with P&ID schematics in AutoCAD Plant 3D software to create intelligent, data-rich diagrams. The schematic data is hosted in the A360 cloud-computing platform cloud and is referenced by Revit project models. The 3D model consisting of elements such as piping, equipment, and accessories is then developed using information defined in the schematic, such as pipe size, pipe type, valve type, and equipment IDs. As the model is developed and the schematic iterated, the user receives feedback to help ensure consistency and that design intent is maintained. Join us to see the next evolution of Autodesk design tools.
