Working for an AECO+ Company is like being in a committed relationship. As such, there are lots of ups and downs. Almost Everyone at one time or other wonders what it would be like to leave their firm and work somewhere else. When should that time be? Are your coworkers difficult to work with? Are you burned out from working long hours? Do you enjoy what you are doing? Does it have meaning? What about your boss? Are they making your life easier or harder? Do you want to advance, and your firm or co-workers are holding you back? Do you feel you are just getting paid too little? Is it really your firm or is it you that needs to change? How are all these questions affected by Covid? This class will discuss these questions and many more. This session will be designed so that the attendees will be given, and even encouraged, to give feedback and join in the discussion. So, bring your thoughts and complaints and your comments about your workplace and let’s dive right in!
Model Properties and Data Exchange API are recent addition to Forge family. They allow us to access design data in more controlled manner, such as by filtering, searching and comparing models between versions. Instead of sending the entire model, you can select only the portion that your collaborator needs. Together with Model Derivatives and Design Automation API, we now have more options to access design data. However, can you tell which one to use for your specific needs? Do you know differences among those APIs? In this session, we will introduce you to two new recently added APIs: Model Properties and Data Exchange API. We will then compare various options we have to access design data. We will show the examples of use cases, and discuss potential application areas that were not possible till now.
