AB6905 - Synchronizing Thermal and Lighting Analysis in Performance-Based Design Revit software and Green Building Studio web-based energy analysis service provide us with in-depth and overwhelming data in relation to building performance. Currently, however, organizing the data and decision-making is mostly a user responsibility. For example, although Revit software’s full analysis provides us with lighting and thermal analysis, the results are not synchronized. To be more exact, the lighting part of the full analysis uses lighting power density (LPD), which is only related to the area and disregards other features such as window properties (even window size) or orientation, and so on. Using the Dynamo visual programming language extension and cloud-rendering services (illuminance calculation is currently a render operation) provided by Autodesk, Inc., it is possible to gather and organize illuminance values for the internal space. From there it is easy to calculate the internal lighting load, and accordingly it is possible to achieve a fully concerted thermal and lighting analysis, which is crucial in decision-making (especially in the design phase). 60 Minutes Lecture Kaveh Alagheband

CO6037 - Model-Based Constructability Review During Design The design process is very different from the construction process. The design model is in a constant state of change. To date, contractors have had issues providing relevant constructability reviews because they are always a step behind. Constructability reviews are usually a reaction to a released set of documents. Design, trending, and analysis through the model enable contractors to interact with the Design Team in a more meaningful way. This process provides a regular feedback loop from contractor to designer on constructability issues. As a result, the contractor is able to deliver meaningful information at a time when the designer is still able to respond to it. This process takes little to no time on the part of the contractor or designer and provides a path toward a proactive constructability review. This class will review the process used by Kiewit Corporation and HDR, Inc., to create this unique model-based working environment. 60 Minutes Lecture Russ Tamblyn

PE6950 - Getting Started with Inventor HSM for Designers and Engineers With rapid growth in technology—especially in manufacturing processes—coordination between designers, engineers, and shop-floor CNC (computer numerical control) programmers is a challenging scenario. Manufacturers cannot always make designs created by designers and engineers, and they send the designs back to the design team for modification in the part model. Additionally, sometimes the right tools may not be available on the shop floor. To overcome these problems, designers and engineers should obtain a basic knowledge of CNC programming and CNC-code generation, which could reduce the time to market and enhance the company’s return on investment. This class covers the steps involved in importing the CAD Model into Inventor HSM integrated CAM Solution for Inventor 2015 software. This process reduces the errors involved during importation and further enables designers and engineers to generate CNC codes and set up models for manufacturability. We will also discuss workflow regarding sending the codes to a machine. 60 Minutes Lecture Sunith Babu

BO6978 - Extending Virtual Design and Construction to Support Total Cost of Ownership The U.S. design and construction industry is shifting toward single-source delivery approaches such as design-build and integrated project delivery (IPD). A fundamental feature that these delivery systems share is the participation of subcontractors in the early stages of the project. DPR Construction has invested heavily in the use of new technologies such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) and in development of expertise in collaborative delivery methods. We find that including owner’s Operations and Maintenance Teams in IPD leads to better total-cost-of-ownership outcomes, providing an opportunity to make asset data flow from the project into asset management systems. This information, along with building-automation-system trend data, makes possible a more accurate picture of building system performance, thereby improving decision-making about energy spend, system maintenance, and repair. We will share DPR’s experience working with owners who understand the business value of IPD in order to achieve breakthrough outcomes in whole-life management of projects and buildings. 60 Minutes Lecture Andrew Arnold

AB7717 - Operate as if all your distributed BIM/CAD users are in the same room In today's world of distributed work forces, collaborating on a project across multiple offices can be a disjointed process at best. Keeping everyone up-to-date with the latest files, even with automated processes in place, is never a smooth workflow and always ends up with coordination overhead. Working together across offices should be just as easy as working together in a single office. A BIM friendly, global file system with cross-office locking can solve your company's distributed workforce issues. Everybody within the company can truly work collaboratively on the same files without overwriting each other's work. Even six different users at six different sites are able to collaborate on the same Revit model at once while performing sync with central simultaneously. And yes, this does work for other Autodesk products like Civil 3D and other AutoCAD verticals. 45 minutes Lecture Randy Chou

CM7270-R - The Peer-to-Peer CAD-Manager Roundtable Many CAD and Building Information Modeling (BIM) managers have little to no direct managerial authority over the staffers they support, yet they’re still expected to get results. To make things worse, many times these managers are also engineers, architects, or designers working under severe time constraints while expected to remain billable. This discussion will focus on strategies for peer-to-peer interaction with users and project managers that can help you persuade people to comply with key CAD/BIM management directives like standards, file storage, training, and interdepartmental coordination. If you fit the peer-to-peer CAD/BIM-manager profile you’re sure to pick up some solid ideas you can use immediately. And even if you do have full managerial authority, you can still benefit from using some of these collaborative and persuasive strategies. This class is designed for managers of multiple disciplines. 60 Minutes Roundtable Robert Green

VI4947 - Shading And Texturing Workflow In this intermediary class I will discuss the theory behind my workflow for shading and texturing environments, props, and characters. These techniques can be used to texture any high-resolution object, whether for visual effects, animated films, video game cinematics, or even architectural work. We will discuss shaders, as well as available methods for applying textures to your models. We will also cover pattern creation methods, from procedurals to hand-painted textures to photo manipulation. We will focus on how to efficiently shade thousands of individual objects without having to spend a lot of time UV shading everything (although we will touch on UV shading). Many of the examples will use 3ds Max software, Mudbox software, Chaos Group's V-Ray rendering engine, and Adobe Photoshop—but you can apply the principals discussed to the 3D app, paint application, and renderer of your choice. 60 Minutes Lecture Neil Blevins
