Can’t Miss AutoCAD Toolset Sessions at Autodesk University Las Vegas 2018


It’s that time of year again—time to register for Autodesk University and start packing your schedule with AutoCAD sessions.

This year, AutoCAD 2019 debuted not only new features and enhancements but the biggest additions of all: specialized toolsets! At AU, we’ll explore what these toolsets mean to you and your projects. Here, we’ve compiled some of the sessions that might pique your interest even further. Don’t delay because sessions fill up fast.

Toolset Time

Ready to dig into the toolsets? These sessions will start you down the path of toolset success.

  • UsingAutoCADToolsets:ToInfinityandBeyond!
    Buzz Lightyear isn’t hosting this session. But it comes close because our AutoCAD team heroes Volker Cocco, Quentin Contreras, and Vinod Kumar Balasubramanian will teach everything you need to know to get started with the seven specialized toolsets.
  • WieldingthePowerofOneAutoCADToolsets:UtilizeToolsetsContentandStandards
    With great power comes great responsibility—or at least knowing how to use it. The AutoCAD team’s Sridhar Subramani and Vinod Kumar Balasubramanian walk you through the procedures using specialized toolsets to design from start to finish, including how to use standard content in Architecture and MEP toolsets, Bill of Materials in the Mechanical toolset, along with wiring diagrams and reporting from AutoCAD Electrical software to simplify and accelerate your design process.

Get on the Map

Of course, the MAP 3D toolset in AutoCAD delivers a host of new opportunities for GIS and 3D mapping with your projects. Don’t miss this session that will put you on the, well, map!

  • TheAutoCADMap3DToolsetfortheAutoCADUser
    Led by Rick Chappell, infrastructure industry specialist at ATG USA; Rick Ellis, president of Cadapult Software Solutions; and Victor Travis, civil designer at the Port of San Diego, this session will use real-world examples and show how the Map toolset goes far beyond mapping and allows AutoCAD drawings to be connected and work with data from many different systems.

Get Mechanical

Did you know the Mechanical toolset features more than 700,000 intelligent parts and features? This session at AU will help you get started.

  • PuttingtheMechanicalinAutoCAD
    Working in manufacturing with AutoCAD and wishing you had more tools at your disposal? Look no further. Mike Thomas shares how to effectively learn and use the Mechanical toolset in this fast-paced class.

Plant It

The Plant 3D toolset helps you produce P&IDs, and then integrates them into a 3D plant design model. Check out this session to begin tapping into these capabilities.

  • AddingtheDesignPowerofAutoCADPlant3DToolset to YourWorkflow
    Autodesk’s Quentin Contreras wants to get you familiar with the Plant 3D toolset including the P&ID features. Here, he’ll share how this toolset can best fit your needs and the intelligent database-driven workflows available.

Of course, there are many other session topics, from sheet sets to tool palettes, dynamic blocks, “wish lists,” and more. Don’t miss out on all of the classes and fun in store at AU Las Vegas 2018 and register today.
