Top Challenges on Moving from AutoCAD® to Revit®
There’s plenty of skepticism that comes with the idea of moving from AutoCAD® to Revit®. Sure, maybe you are doing just fine with AutoCAD. Or maybe you simply don’t have the time. Skepticism aside, you know you’ve considered it. You may not want to admit it, but deep down you know you need to make the move sooner than later. On the flipside, maybe you recently made the move to Revit and feel like you’re in over your head.    No matter which side of the spectrum you’re on, we understand, and we are hosting the perfect webinar for you on Tuesday, March 21 at 12:30 PM EST. Join us to learn about the top challenges on moving from AutoCAD to Revit so that your transition can be as smooth as possible. We’ll uncover the main areas of struggle that we’ve seen and offer tips to help you determine the best way to handle the transition with your team.   We’ll also share reasons why you should go ahead and move from AutoCAD to Revit. You’ll learn how Revit can transform your team’s ...

Garnering Success with Autodesk® Simulation Portfolio for Manufacturing
Success rarely happens by chance or accident, especially in the workplace. Strong management and leadership is essential to an organization’s success. That means, directing your team to use the right resources, with the right projects, at the right time. With the right pieces in place, you can use simulation to drive improved costs, warranty costs, time to market, and product reliability. But, where and how do you start?   Join us for a free webinar on Thursday, March 9 at 12:30 PM EST and learn insights on different styles and tools to help your team work proactively instead of reacting to problems as you encounter them. You’ll hear from Autodesk® simulation experts, Vince Adams and Ryan Abel who work firsthand with organizations similar to yours while helping them streamline processes to design innovative products on time.    This webinar will cover all domains of simulation including finite element analysis (FEA), computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and digital manufacturing. From strategies on how to help make your design engineers successful to coaching end-users to ensure the reliability of computed information, this is a webinar managers ...

February FAB Hangout: Eaton Bus Duct Content for Revit + eVolve™ Updates and Improvements
At some point in your career, you’ve probably heard someone say, “Work smarter, not harder.” Sometimes, there’s not a simple way to figure out how to work smarter—it’s hard to know what’s missing. The experts at Applied Software are here to help. Watch the electrical FAB team's February FAB Hangout to learn about Eaton Bus Duct Content for Revit and explore updates and improvements on eVolve during. During this hangout, we discussed how to improve workflows with Eaton Bus Duct Content for Revit. With their BIM friendly models of electrical distribution products, you can easily integrate Eaton equipment right into your drawings. We also highlighted LOD 350+ and dynamically adjustable Revit bus duct families, as well as catalog information.  The hangout finished with an overview of improvements and updates for eVolve. Learn how this already beneficial add-on for Revit, developed by electrical contractors for contractors, is getting even better. Through single-click automatic sheet set creation for shop fabrication, automatic bills of material, and detail level as-built drawings, eVolve helps you reduce waste without any extra effort.

Bring Your Road and Bridge Project to Life with InfraWorks 360
If you’ve ever experienced headaches and/or insomnia caused by preliminary designs, then we have news for you: There is in fact a better way! With Autodesk® InfraWorks 360, you can quickly create early design concepts, easily communicate complex project concepts, and receive better-informed results. Preliminary designs will always be subject to change, so stop wasting valuable time and money.    We recently hosted a webinar featuring Civil Engineering expert Ken Driscol to learn how you can bring your road and bridge projects to life with InfraWorks 360. In the webinar recording, he’ll show you options for optimizing project performance by using real-world data in a modeling context.    Learn how to explore workflows and specialize in roadway, bridge and drainage design that you can communicate at any stage of your project from anywhere. He’ll also show you how to use master roadway tools, Analysis and Optimization tools, and Bridge Analysis tools, as well as how to import real-world data to analyze slope, elevation, sun, shadows and more.   If you’re a designer, engineer, or planner who is looking for a better way to capture stakeholders who ...

Importance of IoT in Manufacturing: Get There with Fusion Connect
By now, you’ve probably heard of the Internet of Things (IoT). You may even be a bit tired of hearing this buzzword. Like it or not, it’s much more than a buzzword, and it’s changing the way we work from product design to consumer use—and it’s not going away. Let us break it down for you: IoT is a network of devices embedded with sensors and software that connects them to the internet, which connects them to each other, allowing real-time data collection and exchange. What does this mean for the manufacturing industry? And for you as an engineer? For starters, IoT makes data more cohesive and digestible. While data collection is not new, IoT offers a new way of organizing data so you can use it to your advantage without becoming inundated. This leads to an improved customer experience, predictive maintenance, and new service lines to help you design and create better products, as well as additional streams of revenue.  It makes perfect sense for manufacturers to get on board, but how do you get there?  Autodesk® is on the forefront of embracing ...
