We’re excited to announce that at Autodesk University 2012 we will have a track dedicated to the Autodesk Fabrication products, with classes hosted by a number of influential speakers.
This is a great opportunity for anyone out there who is considering learning more about the Fabrication
products to get an insight and learn how they work, and for existing customers to have a refresher course or listen to how other businesses are using the software to help them win more work.
This track has been carefully constructed to give the audience a holistic understanding of the products. There are five classes in total that run in a logical order (although you do not need to take all five). If you want maximum benefit, take them all. The classes are targeted as introductions to the software.
AU Registration is open - so check it out, register and sign-up to the classes below.
Class One: Peter Jackson - Autodesk Technical Specialist: Go Beyond Design: Extend Design Intent from Autodesk® Revit® and AutoCAD® MEP to Autodesk® Fabrication
In this class Peter will overview how the Autodesk Fabrication products can help MEP subcontractors extend design-intent models from their engineering counterparts. Peter will give insight into Autodesk Fabrication set-up, the design line technology and then explain how to use the tools to extend design
models for fabrication detailing.
Class Two: Peter Jackson - Autodesk Technical Specialist: Go Beyond Design: Using Autodesk® Fabrication Software to Extend Design Intent (LAB)
Peter will use this class to extend from his first lecture and give the audience hands-on experience in Autodesk Fabrication set-up, design line functionality, and then extending design models to prepare for fabrication and installation. This is a Lab event where people will be put at computers and be able to follow Peter step-by-step to recreate the processes discussed.
Class Three: Dave Pikey - The Hill Group: Bringing Buildings to Market with Autodesk® Fabrication Software
Dave Pikey, BIM Integration Director of Chicago-based The Hill Group, will bring a real-world perspective for the Autodesk Fabrication products, discussing the benefit of using multiple products in the portfolio to stay competitive in the evolving construction world.
Class Four: Joe Mierzejewski - J.C. Cannistraro: Building with Intelligence: Using BIM for Lean Prefabrication
Joe Mierzejewski from J.C. Cannistraro will be on-hand to talk to you about the benefits of using model intelligence to support the prefabrication of building services systems. Joe will outline how prefabrication and lead production methods help build better buildings and maintain a competitive advantage, all through the Autodesk Fabrication products.
Class Five: Andy Robins - Autodesk Software Development Manager: Fabrication for MEP: Detailing, Costing, and Fabrication Integration
Andy Robins, software development manager for the Autodesk Fabrication products, will conclude the track by building on information already provided in the previous tracks to show how the products can be used to help achieve the required results. Andy will expand on the design line functionality explained
in Peter's classes and show how it can be used within the Fabrication software to prepare models for prefabrication and installation.
We hope you can join us for this specially designed track and experience the software from some of the
best technicans Autodesk in person. Sign-up quickly through, there is limited space in the classes and we've already had a better-than-expected response!
