MSF21122 - Model Based Steel Fabrication: Connecting the Model to Fabrication (and back) When 3D modeling replaced 2D CAD, only the detailing method changed; not the way data gets transferred to steel fabricators: Much of the knowledge in the model is lost. So while detailers benefited, steel fabricators are still getting the same information in the same format. But now it’s possible for fabricators to extract better information from the Advance Steel model. AISC’s IFC for Steel Fabrication Specification is available directly from Advance Steel to feed fabricators’ production management systems and workstations. The new workflow involves sending a single file that a fabricator can use to extract all the information needed for fabrication, including 2D and 3D views, connections and material information. From there, its possible to manage and organize the project ready for fabrication, optimize material and create the data required to drive and track CNC or manual workstations. This class will work through the process and review the benefits of model based fabrication. (Structural Business) 60 Minutes Industry talk Chris Moor

MSF21521 - Precast Concrete Construction - Why Should I Use Revit? The delivery of precast concrete structures is facing a dramatic change in how these structures are documented, fabricated, and constructed. Due to the presence highly effective 2D tools, the precast industry has been slow to adopt the use of Revit. At the same time, other structural systems that have adopted BIM have been able to achieve certain advantages in the marketplace. However, unique qualities of precast construction, most notably the speed of construction and the turnkey nature of the delivery of the structure, create the ability for a precast concrete manufacturer to gain a significant advantage in the marketplace through the use of Revit and BIM in general. We will discuss the use of Revit in precast construction and explore how it can be used to service many aspects of the precast concrete process while improving service to Owners and Developers. Attendees will learn about Revit model creation strategies and workflows and 3rd party tools that can be used in this process. (Structural Business) 60 Minutes Industry talk ERICH BRETZ

MSF21583 - Design-to-Fabrication Structural BIM workflows for mixed concrete and steel projects In this class we will create a mixed material structure in Revit and explore a workflow that optimizes the collaboration between disciplines, and shares the project intelligently with engineers, designers, technical detailers and fabricators. Using connected, or Revit-specific applications we will round-trip the project to/from all disciplines and, using multiple software applications and Revit as the hub for the central BIM model, we will develop the detail at each stage adding reinforcement to structural elements - adapting to requirements for openings for MEP services proposed late in the stage, and applying and checking steel connections prior to sending the model to Advance Steel for detailing and then Advance Workshop for production. We will also look at how you to keep track production status as you link this data back into Advance Steel, and we'll explore various Autodesk Cloud services for project visibility and collaboration.

SD22317 - Moving to the Cloud for your Database Dependent AutoCAD Add-Ins Many AutoCAD Add-Ins depend on a database to store relevant information. For years, databases such as Microsoft Access were used to give multiple users access to the same data. At some point, it may have become necessary to move on to a more robust platform such as SQL Server or Oracle. Now moving to a Cloud-based Database such as Microsoft Azure SQL Database is easy enough to demonstrate the entire process from beginning to end in a 90-minute class. Developers no longer need to wait for their IT department to create a new Virtual Server and install software before they can begin work on a new project. For literally pennies a day, a developer can create a new Cloud-based database that is visible to anyone running their software without worrying about VPNs, Firewalls, and an approval process that takes months to complete. 90 minutes Instructional demo Jerry Winters

DV21960 - Viewing a Space Before it's a Space - VR for Design Verification Virtual Reality isn't always for the Architect to show off their pretty designs! Viewing mechanical and electrical rooms before they are constructed, and before equipment is purchased, is important from a construct-ability standpoint. Just because something fits in a space, doesn't meant the design works. Having a contractor, operations manager, or client walk through and experience the space well before construction can help them understand the design intent. They can give insight on design 'flaws' and layout preferences, which will help the designer to produce an efficient and clean design. This class will showcase case studies in which a design team at MCW Consultants Ltd. used VR to enhance and validate their design intent in a number of mechanical spaces. 60 Minutes Industry talk Laura-Lee Moran
