Description

Description

In today's world of 3D, Building Information Modeling (BIM), and rapid prototyping, are 2D drawings still relevant? Even while some industries push toward bypassing traditional 2D output completely, by going straight from digital to production, drawings for many of us still serve as a primary and essential means for communicating design intent. Yet behind every 2D document lurks the possibility of a file that's a digital disaster. You know the type; they look fine when plotted, but are a nightmare to actually work with. These documents might pass a visual-based quality-control review, but a plot can hide a multitude of sins. This session will explore the hidden DNA of documents that can affect productivity, profit, and even employee morale. We'll brainstorm together on digital best practices to ensure your plotted documents (whether paper or digital) are more than just pretty drawings. We'll also dive into the tools and techniques to help identify, prevent, and remedy digital dilemmas in your company.

Chris Lindner

I'm an ”old school” AutoCAD user (been using it pretty much daily since graduating from Oklahoma State University in 1985) and a fledgling Revit user (some habits die hard!). I've worked in architecture, structural steel, and post-frame buildings, as a drafter, IT manager, trainer, programmer, and Autodesk consultant for notable companies such as Kroger, LBrands, and Huntington Bank. I currently serve as Secretary on the AUGI Board of Directors, and am a member of Autodesk’s AutoCAD Mentor team. I am currently CAD Manager for Shremshock: Architects & Engineers in central Ohio where I live with Sonia, my wife of 30+ years, and our nine chickens. I'm the parent of two adult children and enjoy spending my free time reading, camping, wood-working, doing art (unpavedart.com) and tinkering on the vintage 1966 International Scout I've had since high school!
