    A common engineering environment may consist of several different pieces of software that you need to transfer data between. We will present a workflow that we have developed for tracking member sizes and connection designs from our analysis software (Ansys) through AutoCAD software, Microsoft Excel, Inventor software, and Navisworks software. All of the data is stored in Vault software and actively monitored for the latest version. This presentation will show the process using Microsoft PowerPoint and demonstrate using live data.

    Key Learnings

    • Discover a logical and fully traceable way to transfer data from analysis through to checking the model
    • Learn about how the integration works and which pieces of that integration are tools that need to be custom written
    • Learn about the capabilities of the interoperation between Vault, Navisworks, AutoCAD, Inventor, Excel, and analysis software
    • Learn how data can be transferred between software packages without manual manipulation or data entry
