Major update to construction software collection

June 6th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Autodesk’s Industry Collections, which combines the most powerful Autodesk software in simple packages, have received major updates. Subscribers of the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) and PD&M Collections also get access to AutoCAD 2020. Here are improvements in the AEC Collection: Revit 2020 builds on improvements in Revit 2019.1 and 2019.2. Structural engineers will see improved design-to-fabrication detailing for concrete and steel. MEP customers will get improvements to their electrical design and mechanical fabrication workflows. PDF Underlay has also been enhanced, and the Cloud Model Upgrade service has been introduced to fully automates upgrading all cloud models in a BIM 360 project with the click of one button. The new release of Civil 3D 2020 comes with Dynamo for Civil 3D, a design automation tool helps customers save time by expediting repetitive design tasks. BIM and GIS integration is further advanced with latest release of InfraWorks. Users can now read GIS data from ArcGIS into InfraWorks, make changes to that data, then save that back to ArcGIS, meaning project information can be more easily shared between design and GIS teams.
