With engineering changing rapidly and the development of additive manufacturing methods, designers and engineers are starting to push the boundaries of what is possible when designing and manufacturing components. Additive manufacturing has come on leaps and bounds over the last 5 years, with 3D printers now accessible to everyone at very low cost. More and more people are starting to turn their own ideas into reality. Using Fusion 360 and a desktop 3D printer we can now take art to part. In this half-day workshop, you will design and build a Fusion logo keyring. You will be walked through different modelling techniques within Fusion 360 that will allow you to explore and develop the design with the next generation of engineering tools. Technologies such as parametric design, T spline technology, and direct modelling will showcase the power of Fusion 360 and how quick it is to build complex parts.<br />
This class will be delivered by Kier Construction, a UK-based, industry-leading construction company, supported by Topcon and Autodesk. Kier will describe how they have applied Autodesk BIM 360 tools in collaboration with 3D laser scanners and total stations into their workflows on a complex construction project undertaken in the UK. Kier will demonstrate the key benefits of collaborative working, effective supply chain engagement, and adoption of technology on construction sites to realise and exceed client expectations. Using office-based software such as Navisworks, Revit, and ReCap, we will cover how using a variety of mass data capture techniques to gather as-built documentation combined with integrated on-site verification and management has improved efficiencies and reduced errors on construction sites. Kier will appraise the impact of using innovative new workflows to overcome interoperability challenges between several types of BIM authoring software.
In this class, we will create a project in A360 cloud-based collaboration service. We will learn how to invite project contributors. We will review the differences between project contributors and team members, and we’ll change rights to demonstrate the differences. Once the project is set up on A360, we will learn how to host a cloud Revit software model on the A360 project we created. We will also review added features, such as publishing to A360 and the Communicator. At the end of the class, you will be able to host Revit software models to the cloud for projects, communicate with the project team effectively, and invite the team to contribute to the desired project. This session features Collaboration for Revit, A360, and A360 Team. AIA Approved<br/><br/>

Then attendees will walk through Inventor upcoming updates, explore the rationale of new features and how they improve the design review conversations, and share whether the updates fit their needs and how via a mini survey. Attendees will also participate in an envisioning of the future of connected design with the Inventor Development Team via interactive LUMA methods like RoseThornBuds and Creative Matrix, helping to define potential needs and shape a healthy Connected Inventor ecosystem for the long term. This session features Inventor Professional, A360, and A360 Team.
Interoperability (noun: in-ter-op-er-a-bil-i-ty) is the ability of different information technology systems and software applications to communicate, exchange data, and use the information that has been exchanged. Inventor software provides a medium to collect, use, reuse, and exchange data of different types and from different sources. In this class, we will explore the different types of data supported by Inventor software for both import and export. We'll explore the various methods of exchange, including piggybacking on other products contained within Product Design Suite. Some of the elements examined include: DWG™ import and export; sheet metal DXF flat pattern export; AnyCAD to externally reference third-party models; PDF conversion to 2D geometry to new part within Inventor software; importation of point cloud data; to-and-from exchange in Revit software; publication to 3D PDF; sharing with A360 cloud-based collaboration service; exportation of Inventor software bill of material information for downstream applications; and importation to and from Fusion 360 software. This session features Inventor Professional, A360, and AutoCAD.
This is an effective, structured management system based on the National CAD Standard (NCS) Uniform Drawing System (UDS). This management system emphasizes for Revit software and overlaps AutoCAD software, managing anything from simple distributed model setups (each discipline in a file) to fully integrated (all-in-one) models on A360 Collaboration for Revit cloud service. It is commonly part of the organizational section of a Building Information Modeling (BIM) execution plan. This approach limits added parameters to the Revit software models, and it compartmentalizes liability to each discipline in a way that minimizes confusion and enables each discipline to more directly and fully manage their own content.

This class will illustrate and explain how using the various platforms of Revit software can help you to retool and upgrade your facility management process. We will examine how the third-largest pediatric hospital in the United States decided to change the “cradle to cradle” process of their design, construction, and long-term facility management process. You will see and understand examples of this process in action, the cost savings, the long-term benefits, and the lessons learned encountered. Participants will see how this facility is beginning the process of going to a fully digital system where information is created and exchanged by all stakeholders: architect, engineers, contractors, subcontractors, and eventually the Facility Team—enabling a more efficient and accurate maintenance of building system data. This process enables workflows to be streamlined and overall project costs reduced. This session features Revit and A360. AIA Approved
Have you ever thought about starting your Building Information Modeling / virtual design and construction (BIM/VDC) department over from scratch? What would you do differently with all the knowledge and experience you’ve gained? What wasted time and energy would you avoid the second time around? What tools, software, workflows, and processes would make the cut, and which would be revealed as fluff? I recently did just this after helping to build and manage the BIM department at an industry leader in technology use, and I’ve found it to be an amazingly refreshing exercise in optimization and refinement of workflows and tools. This class will focus on that transition and the lessons learned that I've gained during the process. Whether you’re a contractor with an established BIM/VDC workflow and you need some tips for spring cleaning your processes, or you’re just getting started in this world of 3D technology and need some ideas for the most important first steps to ensure success, you will walk away with some great ideas to take back to your firm.
