If you’re a consistent user of Autodesk Inventor you’ve probably at least heard of iLogic. Maybe you think of it as “that programming thing that I don’t have time to get into and probably don’t need”. Maybe you’ve dabbled in it, or copied some rules from the Autodesk Inventor Customization Forum to save a few clicks or solve a problem. Maybe you’ve even created some complex rules to drive configurable parts and assemblies. Regardless, it’s important to have a good understanding of the tool – what it is, what it isn’t, and where it fits in the overall scheme of Inventor’s Design Automation toolset.
That didn’t take long! It seems like we just rolled out Revit® 2018 and learned all of the new improvements that came with it, and now here we are just a few months later with a whole new set of great functionality added to our favorite BIM application. Revit 2018.1 features some exciting enhancements including the ability to provide user input within the Dynamo Player interface, additional library content, enhanced Rebar for Structural Engineers, and added functionality for MEP Fabrication Parts.
It’s that time of year again-Christmas for us drafting/design folks! By that, I mean that Autodesk has released their newest offerings for 2018 and many of us have already upgraded or are planning to. Improvements range from “efficiency” tweaks to improved pdf importing. With this release, AutoCAD® 2018 continues to improve the way you interact with AutoCAD.
