This class aims to show the implementation of a powerful Common Data Environment, using ACC & BIM360 platforms combined with an application developed in Forge, for the management of hospital project data. With the Grand Paris North Hospital project, intended to be the largest hospital in Paris, France, designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop and Brunet Saunier Architecture, we will explain the implementation of data workflows in order to build optimized circuits to involve all project stakeholders, planners, owner, users, architects and all engineers’ firms with Collaborate Pro and Docs (design collaboration, model coordination and issues management) More than 100 people! We will show how a connected Forge application will collect data from ACC in order to push automation processes in data analysis and deliverables creation. We will do a live demonstration of this real Forge-based BIM Data Checker enabling data processes throughout the project life cycle, from plan to operation.
For the last two years during the pandemic, Jacobs’ Digital Delivery team in Australia have been aware of the increasing challenges from remote project collaboration and stakeholder engagement. We have developed a platform named SIFT built on top of Forge API, Microsoft Power Platform and Azure services to help accelerate our internal Digital Transformation. SIFT democratizes BIM data by helping design teams to better consume and understand design information from BIM models, bridges the gap between specialized BIM software and the end users, making information from Autodesk Construction Cloud easily accessible through enterprise-level IT infrastructure like Microsoft 365. When using together with Microsoft Power Platform, SIFT helps us effectively removed most coding requirement and lowered the threshold for adoption and operation of BIM technologies, making BIM data more accessible and actionable.
In 2017, the UK government funded an analysis of the various costs associated with a typical construction project, and identified that for every £ pound spent, just over 51% results in residual asset value for the client. The Construction Innovation Hub (CIH) was subsequently established with the vision to cause change and demonstrate better solutions to deliver the UK government £35b pipeline. The chosen strategy was to develop, prototype and test platform solutions (pDFMA), with a common kits of parts; demonstrating the delivery of better outcomes for social infrastructure. Integral to the strategy was the use of a new Digital Toolchain to unlock the approach. Grimshaw Architects, Buro Happold engineers, and Mace Construction were commissioned to develop a new suite of "configurators" to enable the "kit of part approach" during procurement and delivery.
Spacemaker is an easy-to-use software for outcome-driven design in the early stages of AEC projects. The software enables planning and design teams to create an optimal proposal for a building site based on physical data, site constraints, regulations, and local preferences. This class will present a case study in which the Spacemaker team worked with a leading real estate developer to revolutionize the site development process. In this example, Spacemaker was used by NREP Denmark and Årstiderne Arkitekter in developing the 35 000 m2 UN17 Village. The entire project team used Spacemaker´s outcome-driven design capabilities to perform design exploration, test regulatory requirements, and optimize site qualities such as wind, sun, daylight, noise, and outdoor areas. The 3D model in Spacemaker served as a single source of truth for the entire project team.
Inventor users: Have you heard of Infraworks? And Infraworks/Revit users: Have you heard of Inventor? This class bridges the knowledge gap that exists between Inventor and Infraworks users, providing an advanced demonstration of the powerful functionality achieved when using these two products together. I’ll show how to create dynamic Inventor models with capabilities that function once brought into Infraworks. Instruction will include setting up iLogic codes to function in Infraworks/Inventor server; providing examples of codes proven to work; showing how these models can be 'Flexed' and 'Instanced' in Infraworks; highlighting the downstream benefits of models in Inventor/Infraworks; and propagating models into Civil3D and Revit for further detailing and project drawings. For anyone curious about my 'street cred' for the content, be sure to check out my AU 2021 presentation titled Multibridge Cable Stay Intelligent Models in InfraWorks, Inventor, Civil 3D, and Revit.
The productivity crisis is well known, and numerous industry reports identify the issues & scale of the opportunity. Boosting productivity is the greatest chance the sector has to transform itself - it is the one lever which would automatically help address sustainability, the skills gap, rising costs & pressure on resources. This session will evidence dramatic advances in business outcomes that are now being made by combining technologies; algorithmic & computational design, industrialized construction, use of robotics and on-site automation are being deployed together, already demonstrating how schedules can be halved using far fewer operatives, achieving higher quality & safety, with lower carbon. However, this has required new relationships and procurement strategies. As well as showing real world examples, this session will also consider how roles, business models, incentives and value propositions will need to adapt if the industry is to make the step change that is necessary.
The team of WSP Canada has developed a highly integrated workflow, combining the best of Revit Cloud Worksharing, Design Collaboration, and Model Coordination to optimize the collaboration and coordination workflows. An integrated workflow has been developed on the largest projects, covering both industrial, linear infrastructure, and building projects. Covering 10 to 500 project members working simultaneously, 7,500 model versions are shared with up to 125 task teams during a single project lifetime. All project members are informed of the status of the collaboration and coordination and presented with a uniform coordination overview, all fully automated. Finally, all parts of the workflow were analyzed, documented, and are now standardized. These are made available for use on every new project within WSP globally. The workflow has helped BIM (Building Information Modeling) managers to become 80% more productive and design teams to speed up project execution and enable faster and better project communication.

With the ACC connect and Forge we created the ecosystem so client can always have access to the right data at the right time in their own systems. A no haste ISO19650 compliant solution enhancing quality for our clients.
We will define a new persona in the digital economy: the prosumer creator. They are not the savvy technical tool users who use our M&E tools today. Nor are they straight consumers, not settling for likes or views alone. They are experts, entertainers, and leaders, their purpose is to create valuable content, and they are not willing to compromise. Autodesk Research is setting out to engage with this net new group of users, and by doing so, to reach the storytellers in other industries. Many technology and business trends, including data-centric algorithms, interactivity, realtime experiences and web3 create the conditions for disruption. A close look at the ecosystem today and the plausible scenarios of tomorrow will inform paths to success, and how any individual can participate more actively. We present a vision how creator’s will build imaginative worlds, remix any media and direct behavior, and what Autodesk Research’s role is in realizing these capabilities..
Generative design is a powerful tool that requires technical knowledge that doesn’t necessarily align with how designers work. This class will explore four key strategies for integrating generative design into product and industrial design: 1) Understanding best practices for setting up a generative design study, and determining how much modeling work is needed prior to running the study. 2) Obtaining outcomes that align with the design’s original vision. It’s common to see designers grow frustrated as they run several studies that create shapes that are unusable as actual components of a product. 3) Understanding in practical terms details related to forces, constraints, and other technical information that is not commonly used in product design, and that might affect the effectiveness of the generative outcomes. 4) Understanding how to best merge generative design geometry with other components that have been modeled directly in Fusion 360 software.
During this class, you’ll get a first impression of the new Fusion 360 Injection Moldflow software. This new application in Fusion 360 software is developed from the ground up, and with a few new concepts and ideas.
More the connection speed, more the reaction time, so interoperability plays a vital role in our day-to-day design collaboration that helps with flexible production lines and reduced integration costs. Many industrial machinery and manufacturing industries have realized the benefits of using both 2D and 3D CAD software together and the list of reasons is long, including better collaboration, increased efficiency and to name a few. In those cases, it’s important that your data remains fully associative. In all such scenarios, AutoCAD Mechanical provides a feature called "Inventor link" that enables you to link Autodesk Inventor assembly (.iam) and part (.ipt) documents to a drawing file and display the 3D model in model space. After that, you can generate 2D drawings of the 3D model in paper space and annotate them. This class aims to show how well you can make use of the Inventor link feature in AutoCAD Mechanical for increased efficiency, reduced time, and better collaboration.
Get on the road to cloud-cloud integration between geographic information system (GIS) and BIM (Building Information Modeling) with ArcGIS GeoBIM and Construction Cloud software. This instructional demo will showcase customer examples of the benefits gained from the fusion of geography and BIM data for project portfolio management, collaboration, and construction project insights informed by geography. By following best practices for geolocating intelligent models, AutoCAD software, AutoCAD Civil 3D software, and Revit software, users can help ensure effective integration of these models in GIS. This reduces the cost of integration by ensuring upfront data quality. To facilitate this, ArcGIS GeoBIM provides analytics to identify documents with geolocation errors. Managing and visualization issues during the design, construction, and handover of BIM projects is crucial for financial and operational performance. We will show how the integration of GIS and BIM with project and issue performance dashboards significantly improves insights into these critical aspects of project management.
We can use Forge to develop infinite ways of customizing workflows and new features for designing, viewing, analyzing, processing, and editing 3D models, but how do we centralize these features in a single work environment? In this industry talk, VINCI will present a framework to federate Forge-powered tools in a single environment, fostering collaboration between several sectors in the construction industry, from design engineers to field workers, passing through cost estimators and MEP specialists.

What is the road map to deploy the PLM solution worldwide? What are the customer challenges, organizational changes, and overall benefits? And what is the best scalable architecture to satisfy a global deployment involving five plants in the United States, three in Italy, and more in the Asia-Pacific region? Join us to discover the answers to these and many more questions.
Effective cultural and organizational change adoption has become a core competency for firms, in today’s rapidly changing AEC industry. Within VolkerWessels Infrastructure we drive digital transformation to our 4 divisions with a central digital program. In this class we will show how we used a proven changemanagement methodology in a specific adoption approach, in order to implement and adopt BIM360/ACC as a new cloud platform. The adoption approach is based on ADKAR, a changemanagement methodology by Prosci. This enables us to pay attention to communication, sponsors, resistance, instructions, coaching and the return on investment of the change. The effect is digital transformation, improved operational excellence and more 'bang for buck' from IT investments, in Cloud technology like BIM360/ACC. This make change and adoption one of our core competencies. We adopted BIM360/ACC efficiently and successfully in our organization by increasing the aspects of ADKAR to the target audience.
As we look at the remarkable pace and impact of the digital transformation of the built environment, it's sometimes hard to fathom just how much has happened in the last several years. Seemingly overnight, a whole new construct tech ecosystem has developed. After years of stagnation, we’re now in virtuous circle. Demand from owner/operators, architects, engineers, contractors for new solutions. Entrepreneurs bringing innovation and advanced technologies. Funding from incumbents as well as private equity. To put what's happening today and what might happen tomorrow in context, it makes sense to go back in history. 25 years ago, Autodesk acquired Softdesk. Shortly afterward, Jesse Devitte became the founding leader for Autodesk's AEC Market Group. Just over 20 years ago, Meridian Systems was sold to Trimble; Jeff Herriman represented Turner Construction in the sale. Jesse and Jeff will offer their perspectives on construct tech development from their unique vantage points.
