Revit as a Conceptual Design Tool
Inventor - Should I use Constrain or Joint
AutoCAD CAD Layer Standards Kick Start
If I had to use a motoring analogy, I would say AutoCAD is to Inventor or Revit like a C-Class is to an F1 Mercedes racing car.
Inventor has some great tools (constraints and joints) in giving components the ability to interact with each other as real world components.
Inventor Measure Tool has been greatly improved after some clamouring from the Inventor community. With it you can measure between components, interrogate minimum distance between objects as well as get an accumulative measurement directly from within the property panel.

In the last of a series of two video blogs, we look to open an Infraworks model in Civil 3D. For this to be possible in the first place, [...]
Although AutoCAD has some great selection tools, and old but overlooked functionality is possibly the most powerful of them all. The Filter command is transparent command. This means that one may interrupt a current command (insert the filter command) by predicting the filter command using a single quotation mark ” ‘ “.
Suppose a user initiates a central file and then creates a local copy, is it possible to recover the file if the files were deleted from the server and the local Revit file was also deleted (but the backup folder still exists)?
