Here’s a sneak peek at what’s in store on the AutoCAD side. As they say in New Orleans, “Laissez les bons temps rouler!” (Let the good times roll!) We can’t wait to see you there.
AU isn’t complete without AutoCAD classes, workshops, and feedback sessions so you can go home with new skills and insights. They are filling up quickly so be sure to enroll today. Here are a few to get you started.
Digital Workflows with AutoCAD on Web and Mobile
Looking to transition to a complete digital design process that works wherever you are? Unlock the full potential of your subscription through anytime AutoCAD access. In this class, product manager Jiacheng Li will explore the benefits of these tools as we walk through several day-to-day web and mobile workflows that leverage some unique capabilities available in AutoCAD.
AutoCAD Tips, Tricks, and the Most Dapper Drafting Techniques
Sit down, buckle up, and keep your hands on your keyboard for the fifth installment of the multi-award-winning AutoCAD Tips and Tricks class that’s supercharged the productivity of thousands. Throw the caution of “that’s how we’ve always done it” to the wind, and learn innovative ways to make AutoCAD work for you. From simple to advanced, Donnie Gladfelter will share the latest techniques AutoCAD has to offer and discover new ways to use existing tools.
On the Road Again: Using Apple’s iPad in the Field
Whether in the coffee shop, on the factory floor, or in the middle of a field (cell signal notwithstanding), you can get to your DWG files in the cloud, make changes to the native geometry, and share your changes with others. This class with Jim LaPier will go through the basics of adding cloud access to the AutoCAD web app, drawing new geometry, and modifying existing work, as well as pulling information such as dimensions and areas from your drawings. He’ll also cover best practices and access for non-AutoCAD users, as well as some additional apps that can be useful in the field.
Pivoting AutoCAD to Support the Hybrid Workforce
The past few years have flipped the workforce on its head. Autodesk has positioned AutoCAD software to support this new situation. Mike Thomas will explore working on the desktop, from a browser, and on your smart device. He will also dive into how to securely share designs with others, collaborate smartly, and handle markups.
Improving Your Design Productivity with the AutoCAD Architecture Toolset
In this session, Emmanuel Maenda of Autodesk will sjare how the Architecture toolset’s end-to-end workflows-conceptual design, space planning, design, documentation, and cloud collaboration workflows using Autodesk Docs can enable architects and drafters to increase efficiency, reduce rework, improve collaboration, and achieve better design output.
A Link in Chain Explains Infinite Chain-Inventor Link in AutoCAD Mechanical
More connection speed, more reaction time—interoperability plays a vital role in our daily design collaborations that help with flexible production lines and reduced integration costs. Many industrial machinery and manufacturing industries have realized the benefits of using both 2D and 3D CAD software together—and it’s important that your data remains fully associative. This class aims to show how you can use Inventor Link in AutoCAD Mechanical for increased efficiency, reduced time, and better collaboration.
Largest Solar Power Developer Uses Design Automation for >50% Time Savings
Adani Green Energy Limited’s automation tool has connected the entire solar-planning workflow and enabled data-driven decisions with optimized designs and error-free layouts. Learn how they have achieved more than 60% time savings with 100% accuracy with the help of AutoCAD software and Civil 3D software.
Using AutoCAD Capabilities for Design of Pit Sludge Emptying Solutions
With AutoCAD software’s automation and digital capabilities—such as the Trace tool, Count tool, DesignCenter library, tool palettes, and the AutoCAD web app—the team has been able to accurately design and build user-centered pit waste containment centers in Nairobi’s informal settlements where manual pit emptiers (MPEs) can safely empty their waste and clean their equipment. Learn more about how they benefited from these features and automation opportunities.
