News on the latest in design, manufacturing, fabrication, construction, and engineering technology.

See how powerful software tools in the AEC Collection can help you to manage multi-discipline coordination and move from conceptual design to analysis, documentation, and detailing. Learn more:

AEC Professionals are discovering better ways to deliver quality projects through model-based simulation, and Owners are expecting that.  Welcome to Simulation Driven Design. Autodesk family of Simulation software provides a comprehensive set of solutions to help you gain a competitive advantage in solving the most challenging design problems.   In this webinar, you will learn how to analyze and predict building performance, optimize & validate design options to insure your design meets design constraints. Explore quality and safety requirements before construction begins. Utilize Autodesk family of Simulation apps with proven technology and reliable accuracy, to simulate building performance over time.  Finally integrate simulation results into your BIM authoring tool, to help you make better design and business decisions.  Simulation Driven Building Design

Driving in 3 Easy steps....... Step 1 - Choose your vehicle Click AutoDrive Arc and the vehicle libraries are automatically opened. Choose your vehicle from one of the vehicle libraries In addition to worldwide design vehicles, you’ll find “European Vehicles”, “North American Vehicles” and “Specialist Vehicles”;  Click Proceed.   Step 2 - Position your vehicle You will be asked whether you want to set the current vehicle as your default vehicle for all future paths. Select either Yes or No. The Drawing Settings window will appear; here you can change your path settings and units to match the drawing. If these are ok, click Yes to continue. Position the front of the vehicle where you want it and left click to accept, then you can set the orientation of the vehicle to point in the direction that you need. The Position Vehicle Window will appear with more options if needed, simply click Proceed to start driving.   Step 3 - Drive your vehicle As you move the mouse around, the vehicle path is calculated based upon the vehicles dimensions and geometry. If a maneuver can’t be performed, AVT wont let you complete that ...

Teams regularly spend time recreating various aspects of the project design in separate analysis software. Different aspects of civil designs must beanalyzed at various stages of a civil project. The designer needs a good understanding of slopes, earthwork volumes, stormwater management, and more.  Analysis results must be considered as a whole in order to make design decisions  that satisfy the project requirements. Civil 3D helps eliminate redundancy in  your workflow by analyzing the model you’ve already built. Designers can getfeedback in real time, while there is still an opportunity to refine the designand make changes.• Analyze pre- and post development hydrologic conditionsusing integrated hydraulic and hydrology tools.• Analyze your AutoCAD Civil 3D pipe network models, culverts, and channels using Autodesk® Storm and Sanitary Analysis 2012 software to help make design decisions. Automate thegeneration of robust reports for submittal to review agencies.• The mass haul and earthwork features enable contractors and engineers to more effectivelyplan the movements, amounts, and placements of material during construction. Asdesigns are changed, Civil 3D can help to quickly analyze earthwork balancepoints, determine the amount and direction of material to be ...
