This week we discuss roadway design, how AutoCAD Civil 3D and Civil Site Design each work in different ways, and which one tackles the lengthy design process better.
In this episode, we discuss four different tools that construction personnel can use to access BIM data in the field - at no cost.
Join us as we discuss surveying technology and the best ways to optimize developing drawings for survey work.
When discussing standards, most in the industry talk about it as an umbrella statement. In reality, there are three key components of standards - Styles, Tools & Templates. In order to properly develop your standards, you need to focus on developing these key components.
Tim Yarris, AutoCAD Civil 3D Product Manager at Autodesk, joins us to discuss new features in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2022. We'll specifically talk about Project Explorer, which provides a whole new level of engineering interaction with Civil 3D data.
In this episode, we discuss the never ending search for the best way to handle CAD standards, upgrades, training, and technical help. We tackle the pros and cons of different types of support providers, as well as the main processes management and users need to consider.
Discussing how affordable and lightweight CAD & PDF takeoff software can simplify and improve daily work for those who deal with systems design and installation.
Over the last decade there's been a change in Civil Design firms where engineers are responsible for their own design work. We'll discuss this shift, why it's important that engineers know CAD, and the tools on the market today that can help them.
Tony Gaffney, veteran CAD consultant & trainer, and owner of Pinnacle Consulting, joins us to discuss the decline in output quality of CAD files over the last decade. There has been a dramatic change in the way drawings are developed and output and this hasn't been good for the design/build industry. We'll discuss some reasons for this decline and share ideas on how to correct things.
Craig Swearingen, Implementation Specialist at Bricsys with an extensive background in CAD Management, joins us to discuss BricsCAD, it's impact on the CAD software market, and what is does better than the competition.
One of the biggest changes in construction over the last decade has been the shift toward the use of PDF construction documents as the primary tool for quantity takeoff. In this podcast, we discuss the reasons for this shift and the tools that help staff generate more accurate takeoffs in far less time.
In this episode, we're discussing a new way building product manufacturers can make themselves known to buyers in the construction industry. Providing tools sets with product metadata makes it easier for designers and estimators to handle layouts using the products and increases the chances of the product being specified for the construction job.
In this episode, Todd Rogers, BIM Manager at Walter P. Moore, joins us as we discuss the serious impacts that the rising costs of construction materials is having on the industry. We'll discuss the dramatic impact on profitability and the skyrocketing costs of building everything from commercial to residential projects.
We're discussing the concept of "lite" CAD systems, those specifically designed for 2D drafting. We'll talk about who they're good for, what they cost, and which ones to consider.
In order to alleviate bottlenecks in the punch list process, construction firms are turning to software systems that help automate this process. Join us as we discuss what you should consider when selecting a software system.
Jo Walker, owner of Jo Walker Design, is back to discuss her experiences (good and bad) with using architectural renderings. We'll talk about how they're used, when it's beneficial to do them and when it's a waste of time and resources.
Craig Swearingen, Implementation Specialist at Bricsys, is back with us to talk about the challenges of bringing on new hires and getting them up to speed on your systems and standards. He'll also share some tips based on his experiences.
While it sounds like a no-brainer, many management personnel do not want to involve design staff in the standards and workflow development process - and that's a big mistake. Learn why it's necessary.
Utilizing custom dashboards in project management software allows team members to easily sort and review all the data related to a specific construction project. In this podcast, we discuss the benefits of custom dashboards and discuss how you can create your own for better file management.
Julie Keverian, Customer Success Specialist at Bricsys, is back with us to discuss the true benefits of 2D design, whether digital 3D modeling is taking over, and the fate of 2D drafting in the design and construction world.
