What’s New with Autodesk Collection?

During this video, Nick Marchek discusses the design process workflow and how to support all phases of the building lifecycle using the Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection. Learn how to:

  • Conceptualize and sketch your design using Autodesk FormIt.
  • Make the connection between Schematic Design in FormIt and Design Documentation in Revit seamless.
  • Discover and visualize necessary design changes in reaction to environmental impacts using Dynamo and Insight.
  • Immerse yout clients into your designs using A360.
  • Support collaborative BIM by utilizing Navisworks for clash detection and review all project team models.


What’s New with Revit 2020?

Revit 2020 comes through with new features & enhancements that help AEC teams deliver projects more productively.

During this presentation, Roger Liucci, BIM Application Specialist at Microsol Resources, outlines the direction of Revit software development in three areas:

Create – Creating models that capture design intent at a high degree of accuracy and detail is central to why you use Revit. Autodesk made it a goal to help you create project data in all phases while engaging in a delightful, intuitive, and contextual experience.

Optimize – Because you’re always striving to create better designs using the best possible tools, software development works to support both. Autodesk is working on features and functionality that enable you to analyze, simulate, and iterate and pick the best design options. They’re optimizing software performance to help you work more productively and automate routine tasks, so you can focus on the design.

Connect – With more multi-disciplinary collaboration and detailed design engineering done up front, Autodesk is considering how you integrate teams and products. They support multidisciplinary project teams and tools that connect design to fabrication for structural steel and precast and that connect MEP modeling to fabrication.


What’s New with AutoCAD 2020?

AutoCAD 2020 includes specialized software (toolsets) as one application that can be installed separately to access various AutoCAD vertical products including AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD Electrical, AutoCAD Mechanical, AutoCAD MEP, AutoCAD MAP 3D, AutoCAD Plant 3D, AutoCAD Raster Design, and the AutoCAD mobile and web apps. The AutoCAD web app and the enhanced AutoCAD mobile app, gives you the freedom and flexibility to work on anything, anywhere, at any time.

Upgrading to a new version takes time and preparation, but it maximizes your software investment by leveraging the most up-to-date capabilities of Autodesk’s 2020 product line.

Watch this video as AutoCAD Expert, Lynn Allen, reviews what’s new in AutoCAD 2020 and provides additional insights to help you with your software installation, and assist you in using these toolsets in your design workflow process and across desktop, web, and mobile.


What’s New with BIM 360 Design?

Autodesk BIM 360 Design allows you to collaborate in real-time on multidisciplinary Revit models with anyone, anytime, from anywhere. Eliminate costly delays, maximize your talent pool, and reduce friction from disparate collaboration solutions.

Review this video to jump start your project the right way, and watch as we guide you from project setup into basic workflows supported by BIM 360 Design.

Our BIM Application Specialist, John Semel, will cover topics like how to set up your teams and folders, initiate Revit Cloud Worksharing, publish from Revit, exchange models with other teams, and use powerful change visualization tools to compare model versions.
