Today, building design decisions are not informed by what can be made. Construction processes are iterative, manual, slow, and reactive, with high risk and uncertainty. Data and tools are disconnected and don’t allow processes to work at scale. In this session I'll go over our Manufacturing Informed Design project and how it brings together our portfolio to inform the design process as early as possible and how the Forge API we are developing for this will enable our customers and partners to extend our solution. The Manufacturing Informed Design API will be a simple way for customers to publish product templates from Inventor into Construction Cloud or Fusion Team, discover those Product Templates via the API or Revit and customize and insert variants from a simple API. I will also cover how we are extending the Forge Viewer for simple, low/no code configuration workflows.
Managing geotechnical data in Civil 3D has been a challenge over the years. Autodesk introduced the Geotechnical modeler for Civil 3D 2022. WIth this free extension you can export subsurface data from gINT or another method and create .csv files that will import directly into Civil 3D. This data will enable you to display your borehole sticks in plan view, on a profile, and even export for 3D use in Infraworks. We will review the workflow of how to manage your data with a local database then import that data into an existing Civil 3D project. Then we will focus on creating stratum surfaces and subsurface profiles from that data. We will also review the sample files and the config file manipulating those to change the styles of our boreholes including hatch patterns at a certain scale. The end result will be a dynamically linked drawing containing geotechnical data completely compatible with your Civil 3D design
