High staff turnover in the last few years has brought to the forefront two unfortunate facts of managing an
Engineering department: it's hard to find good people, and it's risky for your product knowledge to be locked up in
Design Automation can solve both of those problems in one go. If your design process is automated, increasing
productivity doesn't necessarily rely on finding and onboarding new engineers. In addition, the very act of
automating your design process ensures your product knowledge is captured and safe, even if Bill wins the lottery.
Join us as we discuss how you can begin automating your design processes, likely with the tools you have today.

Join us as we explore & explain the current Autodesk cloud offerings for the AEC industry and show you which
tools can help your workflow!
Most products and equipment these days incorporate both mechanical and electrical components. While eventually, both
halves must come together to form a whole product, those responsible for designing those halves often operate on
islands. This divide means that when changes can have the most beneficial impact – early on before the design is
finalized – is often plagued by poor communication, mismatched data, and disjointed processes.
These early-stage woes can be eased by using a solid data management system that can manage all aspects of the
design, and Autodesk® Vault Professional is a perfect candidate. Join us as we explore how Autodesk® Vault® can
manage both Mechanical and Electrical CAD data and help you deliver a better quality, unified design in less time.
Repeated symbols, notes, and markings are typical in CAD drawings across all industries. Any one industry could have
several hundred common characters to choose from. Such an extensive range takes time to sort through to find the
AutoCAD® Blocks allow users to group objects to build those symbols but filing them away is another challenge.
Grouping like symbols together into one parent or Master Symbol streamlines the operation. AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks
can help build a Master Symbol with multiple variations within it to fit various documentation purposes.
In this webinar, we cover:
Are you an engineering-based company still using AutoCAD® for your design plans? Are you tired of revising several
objects instead of just one and letting the software dynamically update the rest? Are you tired of mistakes in
labels from one drawing to the next? Are you worried about training?
It's about time you looked into the capabilities of Civil 3D® and what it can bring to the table that AutoCAD can't:
We cover these and more topics showing that Civil 3D can save you hours of design/revisions over AutoCAD.
After all, it's about time.
Data security is top-of-mind for many of us today, but not necessarily for the same old reasons. Random attacks
by external actors are a growing risk, and as a result, those responsible for Information Security in companies
of all sizes are looking to move as much data off-premise as possible. By its nature, mechanical CAD data is
traditionally one of the last types of data to make that transition, if it ever does. And when it does, it often
leads to a poor experience for the end-user.
Autodesk Upchain is here to change all that. In this webcast, we discuss how Upchain can deliver a quality PDM
experience while keeping your data safe regardless of location.

Sloped piping is used in gravity-based piping to avoid accumulating substances in the pipeline. It is commonly used
in various types of drainage systems or other piping runs that do not have a pumping system or pressurized
components. The pipe is sloped downwards away from the source and toward the destination so that the substance flows
from the high to the low point due to the force of gravity. In AutoCAD® Plant 3D, you can set the rise and run for
the slope when routing pipe or modify the pipe slope in existing runs.
This webcast highlights the process for creating Sloped Piping within a Plant 3D project.
Component roads in InfraWorks® are assemblies, much like in Civil 3D®, that represent different parts such as lanes,
gutters, etc. Using these assemblies, you are able to create and save custom roadway configurations to your library,
allowing you to use them over again without re-creating.
Autodesk® Inventor® has iPart & iAssembly configurations, which allow for design variations when sizes change.
But there are hurdles when the design needs to change more than size increments. With Inventor 2022 Model States,
not only can sizes be adjusted, but features can be included or suppressed to vary the design intent, which allows
for 1 IPT to be used for both Left-Hand and Right Hand configurations.
This ability does not stop with only IPT's but works in the assembly IAM as well. Model
States allow designs to be streamlined and simplify the file structure necessary for multiple configurations. See

AutoCAD® has been around for almost 40 years, while Plant 3D and P&ID were initially released roughly 13 years
ago. As a result, it is not uncommon for companies to have a large number of P&ID drawings that were created in
Vanilla AutoCAD. However, if you search the internet for a method to convert these AutoCAD drawings to a Plant 3D
P&ID, you will find links that state, “There is currently no Autodesk tool to convert plain AutoCAD drawings to
AutoCAD P&ID drawings,” as well as blogs and videos that show methodology with less than desirable results,
limited capabilities and time-consuming techniques like tracing the drawing.
While there is no magic button to instantly convert an unintelligent AutoCAD drawing into an intelligent Plant 3D
P&ID, there are things you can do on both the AutoCAD side and the Plant 3D side that will enable a faster, more
accurate conversion. You can't mass-convert multiple drawings in one click, but you can convert a single drawing
relatively quickly and accurately without redrawing everything.
This webcast will highlight the process for Converting a Plain Vanilla AutoCAD Drawing of a P&ID into an
Intelligent Plant 3D P&ID Project Drawing.

Electrical schematic drawings contain control references to components that may also be shown on different system
drawings. In AutoCAD® Electrical, the drawings and the relationship between them and the electrical schematic are
referred to as peer-to-peer linking and drawings. Peer drawings contain nonschematic and nonpanel components that
need to be linked to schematic components. Typical components displayed on different types of drawings include
solenoids, motors, and meters.
Join us as we discuss peer relationships between drawings and attributes required for peer-to-peer symbols.
Join us as we embark upon a five-week journey to better understand the key concepts of PDM and PLM, using Autodesk's

Project Management systems are not usually an effective archive system for documents. Once a project has been closed,
it may become very difficult to find those documents again. What options do you have to keep important documents
accessible to staff after closeout? Meridian is your answer to this common problem.
In this Webinar, we take a look at the tools we utilize in conjunction with Meridian and our IntelliModules:
One of the more common requests from users involves dealing with bolt lengths. In a previous webcast entitled
"Connections That Really Class Up A Joint," the topic was loosely touched on but not tightened up. In this
much-requested sequel, we will fasten down all the adjoining parts within the software that make up each
connection's bolt lengths.
This webcast highlights the process of managing Bolt Lengths within a Plant 3D project. Topics included:
Note: Please watch our previous webcast, "Connections That Really Class Up A Joint," which covers EndCodes and Pipe

The ability to simplify and share Inventor designs to Revit, making it possible for manufacturers to design their
products in Inventor and later simplify and insert them into Revit projects, has been around for a decade. As
BIM has evolved, we see more of our customers looking to open Revit models directly into Inventor. Autodesk
Inventor's AnyCAD technology allows you to reference Revit files directly into your Inventor design.
With AnyCAD, you can work with colleagues who are using Revit without translating their files—giving you the
confidence that you can create references to geometry knowing that the linked file will update when you receive
a new version.
If you use Autodesk Vault with Autodesk Inventor, you probably know you can use your Vault Server to manage Inventor
Content Center libraries. But should you? We'll do our best to help you answer that question, as well as other
questions you may have about managing Inventor Content Center libraries and files in Vault. Topics will include:
The traditional 2D drawing print, while adequate for nearly all designs, does leave some room for misinterpretation.
The traditional 2D view of an object is limiting, and things can be misunderstood during the manufacturing process.
Enter Model Based Definitions. MDB aims to refocus annotations onto the actual 3D model geometry, displayed in a 3D
space, that allows the user to change view orientation to understand better the annotation and where it is applied.
This webinar will introduce MBD and its impact on design lead times and areas of use and features.
Today, there are multiple ways to perform interference checking, also known as clash detection, across Autodesk's
product catalog. While some users leverage cloud services such as BIM 360 to do this, it can still be achieved even
if you have little or no experience working with building models in the cloud. In this webcast, you will explore a
way to accomplish this task using only Revit®.
BIM 360 is a cloud-based solution that integrates seamlessly with Civil 3D and is designed specifically with Civil 3D
collaboration workflows. Being project focused allows you a straightforward way to organize, navigate and view
multiple projects. BIM 360 decreases communication time and project decisions, increasing the productivity of your
During this free webinar, we will begin to introduce you to the process of sharing Civil 3D design data using BIM
This webcast discusses the transition from multi-user licenses to named user licenses and what users and Autodesk
Contract Managers can expect when making this change.
Questions we answer during this webcast include:
Accurate engineering data is critical for any manufacturing company. Almost every engineering team that uses Vault to
create drawings needs to produce a PDF, STEP, or other neutral file drawings format to share with purchasing, the
shop floor, and external organizations.
However, many manufacturing companies continue to create hundreds to thousands of neutral files every month manually.
This approach can lead to costly errors in addition to being tedious for highly paid designers and engineers.
The “New Normal” has also created a need to share these neutral files to vendors, customers, team members. As part of
these tools, this can be automated as well.
This webinar will show you how to easily solve this issue with our software and service offering designed to automate
Topics covered include:
Hagerman Lifecycle Connection (HLC) adds automatic email notifications for all transitions into Vault WG and Vault
Pro lifecycle states. With this addition, the shop floor manager can receive email notifications when files are
released to manufacturing. Project managers can receive email notifications when files transition into the review or
approved states. CAD managers and/or engineers can receive emails when files are sent back to engineering. The
connection app can help create email notifications and send them to a pre-defined user list.
In this webinar, we will look at the email settings, lifecycle settings, and different options for utilizing the
Hagerman Lifecycle Connection software.
BIM 360 Design's integration with Civil 3D (2020.2) is created specifically for better collaboration workflows. With

The current Autodesk Vault Professional Thin Client is an effective but limited tool for sharing Vaulted File and
Item information for those users that do not have access to a desktop client. With the pending release of the
Autodesk Vault Mobile App, however, those limitations are about to be shattered.
Join us for a webcast showcasing the Autodesk Vault Mobile App Release Preview, where we'll discuss:
To surface or not to surface? That is a legitimate question today considering the level of complexity of some
designs. Surfaces can offer a unique modeling approach that solids would struggle to create with excessive clean-up
or workarounds. Advanced surfacing tools are extremely powerful but seem to be some of the least understood tools of
Autodesk Inventor. Join us as we explore the potential benefits of the surfacing toolset within Inventor.

With Plant 3D, you can create isometric drawings based on your 3D models. Out of the box, the isometric functionality
is very robust and impressive. However, like most features in Plant 3D, you may want to tweak it to match your
company standards and personal preferences. Many of these changes can occur within the Isometric DWG Settings of the
Project Setup, but not all. For those more advanced customizations, you must modify the isoconfig.xml file and enter
a world of schemes, themes and brackety things. You can fine-tune and configure the isometrics in a more detailed
manner than you might have thought possible.
This webcast picks up where our Isometric Title Block Configuration webcast ended and will highlight Advanced
Configuration of Plant 3D Isometrics within the isoconfig.xml file. All examples are the direct result of support
cases, training questions and webcast surveys that have been encountered and requested by end-users of Plant 3D.
Examples Addressed In Webinar:
Query. View. Print. Yes, it is that easy to find CAD docs, paint specs, maintenance manuals and more inside your data
management product. Administrators set the searching criteria on the server and all the users need is a web address
to access the search parameters. If you want to only search by file name, project number, and engineer, you can
easily set it up. If you need to add more criteria for searching, such as description or part number, you can add to
it at any time. The next time the webpage is launched or refreshed, the search interface is updated.
Please join us as we take an in-depth look at the Hagerman QVP Software and how easily it can be implemented in your
AutoCAD Plant 3D projects with multiple users, until now, have been configured on a company server in a networked
environment. As long as all designers were physically located in the same location, that was ok. When a project was
in one location, and users were working remotely, a VPN was required to access it, or a remote desktop application
was also needed. Unfortunately, Plant 3D is not designed to work that way effectively. Remote users experienced
lengthy delays and latency issues, no matter how fast the Internet connection. You need a tool that will enable true
collaboration with Plant 3D. The solution is BIM 360.
What will be covered:
For years, Inventor has had some great functionality to publish BIM Content for use in Revit. However, sharing the
resulting Revit families with customers and collaborating on design changes continued to pose a challenge. With the
recent introduction of sync capability between Autodesk Vault Professional and BIM 360, that problem is largely
solved. During this webcast we'll explore the capabilities of this new functionality, including:
The Project File is critical to proper operation and stable workflow when using Inventor. Few new users understand
the importance of this file, and few seasoned users appreciate its impact on daily workflows. This webinar will
endeavor to break the Project File down to its simplest form. We'll outline initial setup, required settings such as
template & Content Center paths. We'll identify which areas of the project file work best when kept to a local
computer versus which areas can be referenced to a network share.

We believe Design and Manufacturing should be part of one seamless workflow.
In this presentation, we show you how to use your existing designs, and generate Computer Aided Machining (CAM)
toolpaths, without the hassle of changing software. By utilizing Inventor CAM for manufacturing, there is always
direct toolpath associativity with your design model.
Since you already work inside Inventor, you can easily fill holes and pockets as needed for manufacturing. You can
also model work-holding components and create fixtures as needed for collision avoidance. When you add this
together, you will quickly realize the benefits of working directly inside your modeling environment, not to mention
the benefits of a reduced learning curve.
We will introduce you to Inventor CAM and the benefits of CAD-embedded 2.5-axis to 5-axis milling, turning, and
In AutoCAD Electrical, you can annotate panel footprint symbols after you add wire numbers to your schematics.
You can build panel footprint symbols with target attributes used for the wire connection information. If these
attributes are not present on the panel footprint, a new or updated MTEXT entity displays the wire information.
Which BIM 360 Collaboration workflow is the best workflow for you?
Design Collaboration is a BIM 360 module that dramatically improves multi-firm project teams' ability to meet the
demands of a modern construction project. Each project requires unique approaches and has different dynamics between
the teams tasked with delivering on time and on budget. Based on this diversity, Design Collaboration allows teams
to choose how they work with other teams. Sometimes they need to be in constant sync, while in other cases, they
need to control the exchange of information between each other.
In this presentation, we will look at the setup and workflow for the following BIM 360 Collaboration options:

project data management challenge manageable.
Meridian's capabilities in this area include:
Do the different departments within your campus facilities organization retain their own drawings and documents,
frequently limiting access to only those within that department or even to only one person within their email box?
Are they each keeping their own silos of information? Does coordination and communication happen too late; only
after decisions have negatively impacted other groups due to lack of access to information? Operating in this manner
can impact more than just budgets and schedules. Working in informational silos can produce inferior outcomes;
making it more difficult to maintain and operate the campus and creating an “Us versus Them” mentality between
departments and individuals. Join us and learn how creating and maintaining an effective document management
strategy can alleviate many of the stresses caused by these silos of information.
Piping Connection Settings can be found in the Project Setup of Plant 3D but are generally overlooked. However, these
settings control the behavior between pipes, nozzles, valves, and many other components used in a 3D Piping Model by
maintaining continuity between the connected components such as diameter, pressure class, facing and other selected
class properties. Most connection types are included out-of-the-box, but they can be modified to fit unique project
requirements or even personal preferences. New types of joints can also be created and setup to work with custom
catalog components that require an end type that is not included in the software.
This webcast will highlight the process for managing and creating various types of Joints in the Piping Connection
Settings within a Plant 3D project. Topics will include:

A complete design is more than just a model and a set of drawings; each part often has a collection of associated
metadata. For accuracy and optimal productivity, this metadata should be collected only once, and ideally by the
individual with whom the data originates. Autodesk Vault can help, but whether you're migrating existing designs
into Vault or creating new design information, it can be a challenge to ensure the right information is provided at
the right time.
In this webinar you will learn:
Autodesk Vault lifecycles provide a great way to keep track of the status of documents or part numbers and control

A Process Flow Diagram (PFD) is a type of flow sheet that illustrates the relationships between major equipment
within the project. PFD's specify flow rates, temperature, pressure and other information of interest. Plant 3D is
not setup to create PFD's out of the box, but it can be customized not only to create the PFD's but to build a
relationship between the PFD's and the P&ID's. In turn, any relationships between the P&ID's and the Plant
3D Model will also be maintained within the PFD's.
This webcast will highlight the process for creating Process Flow Diagrams within a Plant 3D project.
Navisworks is commonly used for model review and clash detection. What else can it do? This webcast will show how to

Plant 3D has built-in functionality for creating equipment from basic 3D modeling shapes. When it comes to more
complex designs, Inventor has advanced tools for creating accurate models. Adding nozzles at angles or coming off
the tangent of a cylinder is almost impossible to accomplish in Plant 3D, while Inventor can perform these tasks
with ease. However, getting those Inventor Models converted into a usable error-free piece of Plant 3D equipment is
not as easy as clicking a button. There are steps to perform in Inventor to prepare your model for Plant 3D, as well
as steps to finalize this equipment once it has been converted to Plant 3D.
This webcast will highlight the process for creating compatible Inventor models for conversion into Plant 3D
equipment. Topics will include:
Transform the entire process of developing, executing and managing infrastructure projects by using initial surveying
and data collection, environmental review, public participation, design and documentation, bidding, construction,
and operations and maintenance. The model-centric approach enables planners, engineers, and designers to explore and
validate innovative design ideas and what-if scenarios with project investors.
Before ground is broken, all parties have a better understanding of scheduling (4D) and cost (5D), environmental
impacts are assessed and understood, and the public can visualize what the project will look like at various stages
of completion. Once the model is sighted, you can export back to Revit so the model can be geo-referenced for
conceptual planning. This workflow provides you an accurate model for elevations, building position, sun studies and
ability to coordinate with other softwares (i.e. Navisworks) and other disciplines.
