    Introducing Usage Reporting: Make data-driven decisions about your Autodesk products

    Wondering if your team is making the most efficient use of your software? Before now, your choice was either to keep wondering or engage in time-intensive, manual tracking of users, products, and versions. But Autodesk’s new usage reporting* functionality takes the guesswork and slog out of tracking who is using what product and how often. This […]

  • Steel Workflow from Early Concept to Fabrication using AEC Collection – Part 2

    In this blog post, I’ll continue the subject I started a few weeks ago. In the part 1 I covered how structural designers and engineers can collaborate and how AEC Collection helps them connect design with analysis. In this part let’s focus on verification of steel connections, detailing and fabrication. During the project process from […]

  • Steel Workflow from Early Concept to Fabrication using AEC Collection – Part 1

    Traditional structural engineering workflows involve a variety of challenges. Structural engineers typically start the design process by getting familiar with the architect’s design by interpreting architectural drawings or general 3D conceptions. From those drawings most structural engineering offices will create at least two different visions of the project by creating a design of the physical […]

  • AEC Collection Workflows: Dynamo for Structure

    The visual programming interface of Dynamo for Revit is enabling structural engineers with the tools to build structural models with minimal energy and make their own structural design tools. In the early stages of the structural design structural engineers and designers can use Dynamo for Revit to interpret the architectural model and explore ways to […]

  • MEP fabrication in Revit

    Convert MEP design intent models to MEP fabrication detail models in BIM

    The Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection now includes Revit and Fabrication CADmep, enabling mechanical and plumbing contractors to connect detailing and fabrication to BIM. Use a single fabrication database and a variety of tools to detail, coordinate, and prepare BIM detail models for pricing, MEP fabrication and installation. Working in Revit for MEP, you can […]

    Advance Steel in Autodesk AEC Collection

    Structural engineers, detailers and fabricators struggle with siloed teams, disconnected workflows, and varying software platforms that do not integrate seamlessly. This requires manual processes to bridge gaps which can lead to expensive errors and fabrication waste. To help address these challenges, we have added Advance Steel software to the AEC Collection. The AEC Collection now […]
