    This class will investigate how much connection design workflows have changed in recent years. Using several high-profile design projects delivered by Mott MacDonald, we’ll demonstrate how to work with Revit software, Dynamo, Robot Structural Analysis software, Advance Steel software, and IDEA StatiCa to slash designing time, optimize material, and satisfy the code requirements at the same time. We’ll present case studies from Jakarta Velodrome (Indonesia) and Waterloo Station (United Kingdom) with a focus on how to handle data models across the Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection, and we’ll synchronize them with IDEA StatiCa Connection, a code-checking application from Autodesk industry partner IDEA StatiCa.

    Key Learnings

    • Get familiar with various connection design workflows across the AEC Collection
    • Learn about challenges in steelwork connection design from various real-life projects
    • Learn how to quickly code check all types of steelwork connections to increase productivity
    • Get insight into CBFEM-based connection design and how it compares to traditional approaches
