GRAITEC's Industry Tools Showcase Sessions at Autodesk University 2023

Integrating Cost Management with ERP for Construction

November 13th | 4:30 PM ET

Join us for an informative session “DATA Connect: Integrating Cost Management with ERP for Construction,” where industry experts will guide you through the integration of Autodesk’s Cost Management and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems commonly used in construction.


Better Coordinate Your Model with Navigation Enhancement Tools

November 14th | 3:30 PM ET

Coordination within a Revit model can often be a challenging task. One of the difficulties lies in the navigation through the model and the ability to quickly locate specific elements.


Dive into Graitec Advance Design and BIM Workflows

November 14th | 4:30 PM ET

In this demo we will first present Advance Design structural solution software, the tools and features which will help you with modeling and analysis.


Accelerate Revit Framing With StrucSoft

November 15th | 4:30 PM ET

Join this StrucSoft demo session and gain expert-level knowledge on accelerating your Revit project’s framing.

A Factory Design Utilities Discussion with Peers on a Successful Deployment (MFG601304-rt)

Roundtable Discussionn | Monday, Nov 13, 8:15 AM – 9:45 AM PST

Description: Are you planning on implementing Factory Design Utilities at your company? Maybe you’re in the process of implementing Factory Design Utilities, or you’ve tried to implement Factory Design Utilities and had some issues. There are a lot of variables to consider—such as how many employees will need access, shared content, content creation, templates, cloud data management, and so on—and it can be overwhelming. In this roundtable class, you can discuss the details with other companies that have implemented Factory Design Utilities, and you’ll get best practices from companies that have implemented it successfully.

Todd Schmoock, Sr. Application Specialist, Applied Software, Graitec Group


The ABCs of Transitioning to AutoCAD Electrical and Best Practices (MFG601331)

Technical Instruction | Tuesday, Nov 148:15 AM – 9:45 AM PST

Description: Are you using AutoCAD software or some other program to represent your electrical controls designs? The problem is that they are individual drawings with text and lines but no intelligence. It is up to you to make sure the drawings are accurate, and there’s no way to get information from them. Attend this session to learn why AutoCAD Electrical software is a better solution for documenting electrical controls. Even without fully implementing AutoCAD Electrical, you can save 25% more time than when using standard AutoCAD. Additionally, you’ll be able to run audits to verify your design, and extract information from the drawings like BOMs and wire reports.

Speaker: Todd Schmoock, Sr. Application Specialist, Applied Software, Graitec Group


How to Incorporate Structural Analysis and Design into Your BIM Workflow (CS129600)

Technical Instruction  | Tuesday, Nov 148:30 AM – 9:30 AM PST

Description: When describing a concrete structural model in Revit, the model contains elements used in constructional projects and exported to Graitec Advance Design solution to apply loads and perform structural finite element analysis. The export process will take care of the required properties of elements such as material, sections, and geometry. Using the powerful mesh engine and finite element solver of Graitec Advance Design, the internal forces will be calculated based on the applied loads. Then the required area of reinforcement in elements will be calculated, considering the concrete design code and localization. Next, the model will be exported back to Revit. Graitec GTCX format can also transfer internal forces and rebar areas to Revit using the Powerpack tool. Based on the calculated forces and steel area, we will present how to perform 3D rebar placement in Revit for several structural elements. The process of model synchronization between Revit and Advance Design will also be covered.

Speaker: Farshad Pourshargh Ph.D, P.Eng., Solution Technical Manager, GRAITEC


How BIM, New Tech, 3D Rebar, and Mixed Reality Enhance Design and Build Projects (BES601179)

Case Study | Wednesday, Nov 15
3:30 PM – 4:30 PM PST

Description: Discover how implementing building information modeling (BIM) innovative concepts in design and build projects can greatly improve project efficiency and accuracy. By using the latest construction technologies such as mixed reality, LiDAR scans, and parametric design, construction teams can better visualize and plan projects, reducing errors in the construction phase. This class will showcase practical examples through projects delivered by LEVIATAN and UBITECH, major engineering offices in Romania that use Autodesk and GRAITEC software. Additionally, the use of these technologies can increase safety on construction sites and reduce the amount of time required to complete projects. Ultimately, these benefits lead to improved quality, reduced costs, and better outcomes for both construction teams and clients.
