This class will cover implementing new technology into existing post processors and give attendees some insight into the future of "posting.” We’ll outline the use of machine configurations and how they can significantly simplify the Postscript, bringing more functionality to the Fusion 360 UI. With the release of .cpsz, we’ll cover how to use, build, and distribute new packaged posts that enable the distribution of all supporting assets in a single file. Previously, Fusion 360 posts required a lot of scripting to perform certain tasks, which have now been covered in the post API. We’ll present this new API and explain its usage—enabling much more basic post processors. Finally, we’ll give a brief overview of the road map and the future of post processing within Fusion 360.
The US senior population is growing. However, many senior residents do not have the financial resources necessary for a basic standard of living. Their isolation and loneliness has been identified by experts as a great public health risk. Understanding community as an antidote to isolation, MASS Design Group has partnered with 2Life Communities to develop a model for high density housing that prioritizes resident connections and communal activities linked to aging well. This session will explore a framework that creates opportunities for meaningful communal programming at a variety of scales and increases access to green space, natural light, and fresh air. Using various projects in Massachusetts as case studies, we will discuss design strategies that connect seniors to the benefits of community. We will look at ways to balance the need for density and efficiency with the creation of healthy environments that help senior residents live better, longer.
Cheaper, Faster, Better? Pick 2? Why, when you can have all 3! When planning to tie processes and data sources together there’s no better option than utilizing Fusion 360 Manage and Autodesk Vault Pro to put them all in one place. This class will showcase the journey of a mid size company with the audacity to create a global solution to unite resources and projects in that one instance on a global scale. We will walk through the steps and missteps along the way and what to look out for on your journey.
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
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.
