The Revit team has been working to bring you new and exciting features for the 2018 release. Revit 2018 has the tools for consistent, coordinated, and complete modeling for architects, MEP, structural engineers and detailers, and construction contractors.
Now that 2015 has come and gone let's take a look back before we break in the new year. We've covered all the new features from the 2016 Autodesk lineup, talked about the state of manufacturing, the future of 3d printing, and of course, tips and tricks to help get you faster at day to day operations. We've put together our top 5 posts.
How do I get an Inventor model into Revit? Can I open up an Inventor model in Revit and save it as an RFA file? Can I export an Inventor model to an RFA file? Can I save as my Inventor model to an RFA file? I receive these types of questions from customers on a weekly basis and there is a solution, it's called the "BIM Exchange Environment" within Autodesk Inventor 2016.
Join KETIV and special guests, David Dreff and Ryan McMahon from Autodesk to learn how they have helped the Big 3 automotive companies use laser scanners with Autodesk solutions to:
- Capture, register, and manage point cloud datasets
- Use point clouds in combination with CAD assets for building and factory layouts
- Use point cloud datasets with CFD to perform environmental analysis

In my background working for the RV industry my primary responsibility was to design and build a better motorhome or travel trailer. But that was just a small part of this process. As a company we also had to facilitate the production of our product. I worked closely with a Manufacturing Engineer who would manage our manufacturing plants and assets throughout the US and Canada to help ensure quality and consistency between our products. He would layout these facilities in 2D and help procure new equipment in an effort to increase efficiency.

Collaboration and communication while working on a Revit project can be troublesome for an AEC consultant. Having worked for an MEP firm in the past, network worksharing off a localized central Revit model was the norm, which meant designing from an outdated architectural model and creating a clash detection disaster.
There was a mechanical guy routing ductwork and placing diffusers, a plumbing guy routing piping and placing sprinklers, then there was me placing receptacles, light fixtures and routing conduit. When changes were made to our designs, communicating these changes typically wasn’t accomplished until right before we had to submit our model to the architect.
I know it's only my second post but we're going to do something a little different this time. I recently hosted a webcast detailing the benefits of Autodesk Maintenance Subscription and I thought that this might be a topic worth discussing here.
Hello everyone, welcome to my introductory post. I suppose we can start with a little background. I'm one of the newer members of the team here but don't worry, I have over ten years of industry experience including Product Design, Research & Development, Product Management, Production Management, and End-user Support & Training.
The plan here is to highlight support cases from our Lifeline team that might be relevant to other users. The format is a work in progress so if there is something you don’t like or something different that you want to see be sure to let me know.
