To save on paper you can plot to PDF for viewing purposes. One of the issues I have come across is that the lines are faded and do not look consistent. In this video, I will demonstrate how to achieve this.
Bamboo Transcends the Tropics for Carbon-Negative Construction It can be argued either way: Bamboo is a building material that’s criminally underused in construction or one destined to remain a quirky, regional curio. Long ignored beyond the developing world, bamboo (a grass, not a tree) has the compressive strength of concrete and the tensile strength of […]

Keeping house and applying standards to a company can be a daunting task. This is something the whole world over can attest to. Having a big design team does make it extremely difficult to maintain your company standards when everyone has their own idea of what a standard should be.
So your project is coming on nicely and you are ready to get a weight for the assembly maybe for a costing for galvanising the steel. It should be quick and simple right and it is…kinda.
In the previous part, we created an AutoCAD block with an attribute. In this part we will be extracting the information from the inserted blocks.

In this example I’ll create a simple object as a block representing a services manhole and then add an attribute to the block indicating the manhole position and number.

This means that one may interrupt a current command (insert the filter command) by predicting the filter command using a single quotation mark ” ‘ “.
AutoCAD is able to be imported into Inventor with the AnyCAD technology. This technology allows you to use the AutoCAD geometry to do your Inventor features. If you change the AutoCAD geometry from within AutoCAD it will also update in your part or assembly that you have imported the geometry into.
AutoCAD (DWG) and Design Review (DWF or DWFX) files can now be linked directly in to a Revit file from the files that are automatically synchronized from the cloud onto the desktop through the Autodesk Desktop Connector. This is great as one no longer must download the files to be linked onto one’s hard drive each time someone else updates the file. Also, the mark-up file (Design Review file) can now be stored in one location for management purposes, and this file can be linked into multiple users files at the same time. When the user synchronises the file (only one may do so at a time).
