New workflow tutorials for the AEC Collection

Have you tried

By Aaron Vorwerk

See how Revit®, FormIt Pro, Robot™ Structural Analysis, and more come together in workflows for complete building design.

If you design or engineer buildings, you know that every project introduces a unique set of challenges.  And while it might be comfortable—or at least familiar—to stick with your favorite CAD or BIM software as you address them, you might be missing out on purpose-built tools designed to make your life easier.

Maybe you’re an architect adept at AutoCAD, and you are top-notch at solving for early-stage design and visualization challenges, but you find it difficult or time consuming to model building performance in the early-stages of your design process. Or perhaps the out-of-the-box tools in Revit meet your needs for a typical engineering project, but you find that you struggle when you take on complex, multi-year projects involving many stakeholders.  If so, maybe it’s time to consider extending your current design and production capabilities beyond your favorite tool.  The good news is that you can adapt, complement, and extend your workflows using products and features already available to you in the Autodesk AEC Collection!

To help you explore these capabilities, Autodesk has produced new learning content for architectural, MEP, and structural design professionals. Showcasing a real-world university campus project, these video tutorials demonstrate workflows for conceptual and computational design, HVAC systems layout, HVAC design to fabrication, structural design and analysis, and structural steel detailing.
