Today, I am going to address the most pressing questions our prospects ask about achieving efficient electrical design in a collaborative team environment.
Did you hear What’s happening to PlanGrid?
Following the acquisition of PlanGrid, Autodesk is finalizing the unification of PlanGrid and BIM 360 into a unified Platform as the all new Autodesk/PlanGrid BUILD that will enhance the way you work.
During their announcement at Autodesk University 2020, Autodesk revealed that they will be releasing three new cloud offerings this year for AEC design workflows. These new offerings will be on Autodesk's unified platform for the AEC industry. The updates include:
Whether you are an existing standalone seat holder adding to your seat count or a former multi-user account holder switching to standalone, this article will be of use to you. We’re going to give away the bank on what now seems like an age old and common support request of “how do I add a user and provide a seat of the software to a new standalone user”. This is a 2 fold process so listen up.
If you never heard of xDesign, you are in for a treat. As you all know we made leaps and bounds in technology within the last 10 years, and it is still growing. More and more companies are faced with new challenges and are hungry for great products without the overhead and expensive IT cost typically associated with engineering. The cost of servers and their upkeep is enormous. Many companies no longer maintain an IT person on staff, those requirements are more and more being outsourced. This does save money, but it is a partial solution to the problem. Currently there are many companies and organizations looking for a solution that does not require IT overhead. If this is something you are looking for, you are at the right place.
Project handover to some in the construction industry means delivering “tons” of drawings, and other documentation to the project owner upon completion. Bluebeam can reduce the massive amount of paper with the digitization of the O&M manuals. The other benefit to digitizing documentation is the fact that it will make for simpler access for the parties who may need it in the future.
Cold Storage is a feature in SOLIDWORKS PDM that will automatically move or delete old versions of files. It can be used to reduce the amount of disk space required on an archive server. It’s similar to tape backups that would be used to take data offline to minimize storage requirements in the early days of computing. While adding disk storage is relatively inexpensive these days, managing your file archive is something an administrator should consider. In this post we will discuss some considerations, how to configure cold storage, and how it is used.
Maximizing your Productivity with Customized Tool Sets in Revu
If you are using mark-up and measurement tools in Bluebeam Revu for any sort of document review, customization of those tools will greatly benefit your work flow. How many times have you made mark-ups and had to change the color, line style, text style, etc. of those tools? If you conduct a review once a month maybe changing the properties of mark-ups isn’t that detrimental, but if you are conducting reviews on a daily or weekly basis this is definitely for you.
