Say goodbye to messy AutoCAD tool palettes and bloated block libraries. HIVE for AutoCAD blocks has arrived! CTC’s robust Revit® content management solution is being expanded to include full support for AutoCAD block libraries. Organize, manage and set permissions to ensure the latest content is available to those with permission, even when working remotely. Users can quickly find content using libraries, tags, favorites and file metadata. This update will support detailed block attributes, dynamic parameters, insertion properties and more. Easily import your legacy tool palettes and DWGs for an easy switch to Hive.
- Learn about new AutoCAD block libraries support
- Set block content permissions, tags, insertion parameters and more for a highly customized content library
- Control block access via user and group permissions
- Fully support remote users with integrated cloud hosting
Making changes to family files is a time consuming manual process. The people with the skills to properly make changes to families are usually in high demand and can’t spare days or weeks of time to manually push changes into their family library. Very frequently, family libraries are just left to stagnate and issues handled one. These changes often span multiple years and are all handled in different ways. In this webinar we will be discussing Family Processor, a tool that allows you to define one or multiple changes to one or more Revit family files, and then process those changes in batch, saving tons of time in the library maintenance cycle.
- Introduction to the Family Processor User Interface and Workflow
- Overview of Family Repair Configuration Settings
- Observe the Execution of Established Settings on a Single Family with Planning for Multiple Family Implementation
- Saving and Loading Settings for Repeatable Workflows
Labeling and sheet production can be a big budget killer on projects. While it seems Civil 3D should be able to automate more of this, the fact is that most of the time we’re clicking for every label we want to add. This is where Label Genie™ from CTC comes into play. We can automate well over 125 labeling processes. From MText to contour labels, we’ll show at least 30 of the most popular use cases for Label Genie.
- Learn to automate tedious labeling processes in Civil 3D
- Configure detailed label scenarios and insert 100s of labels in seconds
- As designs change, simply rerun the label scenario to update all labels
- Support for virtually all Civil 3D and AutoCAD label types
Since Revit doesn’t have a quality built-in batch printing or file exporting tool, this process can be quite tedious without some kind of add-in. The Plotter & Exporter is purpose built to facilitate much both tasks, and it can be run in batch on multiple models. This introduction webinar will demonstrate how to configure and run Plotter & Exporter on multiple projects.
- Understand multiple methods for selecting views to be plotted or exported
- Define export settings for each major export type
- Automate file naming from Revit view and project properties values
- Execute on-demand or scheduled exports
While Civil 3D pipe networks are some of the easier toolsets to use, they leave a lot to be desired in terms of efficiency. With CTC’s full fleet of pipe tools users can edit by pipe runs, perform detailed analyses through spreadsheet syncing, create detailed pipe depth reports and manhole schedules, and manage part sizes and properties all at once.
- Learn to work more effectively with Civil 3D pipe networks
- Edit entire pipe networks through in-app spreadsheets or Excel®
- Export pipe networks to excel, then sync changes back to Civil 3D
- Design pipe networks by pipe runs instead of one at a time
Engineers love their spreadsheets! Actually, they really love the data, and Revit® is chock full of data. So why can’t Excel® work in Revit? Guess what? It can! This webinar will show you how to take Excel data and use it to drive objects in Revit. Whether it’s pushing data in for scheduling or massaging data pulled from the models and pushed back in to make changes, this session on Spreadsheet Link will show how it’s done.
- Learn how to manipulate data in Spreadsheet Link and apply back to the model
- Understand how to format data in Excel and push back to Revit using Spreadsheet Link
- How to create a repeatable workflow that can be used by other projects
