Over the past 29 years, Autodesk has become recognized as a leading 2D and 3D design software provider, but less known for how it goes beyond design, especially within the construction industry. The knowledge and insight that is held by construction professionals and engineers can be used to make better design decisions, which will ultimately benefit all phases of a project, from design, through pre-construction services, fabrication, project execution, operations and maintenance, even renovation or demolition.
The intention of this blog is to show how BIM design data can be utilized and repurposed throughout a project lifecycle, by providing insight into Virtual Design and Construction workflows and the use of Autodesk Construction solutions. By giving you the information and tools to better manage projects, increase productivity, improve workflows and influence the design, we want to empower you to get the most out of products you use every day.
We will focus on the functionality, workflows and interoperability between Autodesk Construction solutions, including Navisworks, Revit, Quantity Takeoff, Constructware, Buzzsaw, Vault, and AutoCAD based products.
Over the next few weeks and months we'll be acquainting you with the 2012 releases of the Autodesk Construction products, with suggestions of use for the new features, as well as hints, tips and tricks on how to make use of existing functionality. But overall, we want to hear from you - the people that rely on these tools every day - we’d like you to share your stories and your tricks; we’d like to hear your suggestions for topics that you’d like to know more about; and most of all we want to hear your feedback.
Welcome to 'Beyond Design' and we hope to hear from you soon.
