Autodesk Advance Steel Tutorial/Video required
searching Fox posted a topic in Autodesk Software GeneralGood day Will someone please help. Could you propose a tutorial or video that demonstrates how to design a simple lattice structure from scratch (not import) - in Autodesk Advance Steel (any edition but later preferred)? I am currently proposing to my superior that our division acquire Autodesk Advance Steel instead using Autodesk Inventor as a more suitable alternative - for the purpose of detailing lattice structures that will support electrical substation equipment. However, I need to convince them that this is a suitable product (or not), for which I need help in drawing a prototype structure using a 30-day trial. All of the tutorials I could find only show how to design building/warehouse structures - but no small/medium lattice supports (examples attached). Those tutorials are unsuitable - the upright columns are shown using I-beams instead of angles, the connections are way too complex showing gussets instead of simple bolt connections, and I cannot find info on how one would go about constraining to a three-dimensional (not 2D) grid. My requirements for Autodesk Advance Steel: - steel lattice design (e.g. electrical substation support, isolator support, transformer support) - simple connection (e.g. angle to angle bolted connection) - 3D grid (or skeleton) constrained design (i.e. overall dimensions can drive design) - arrayed braces (if possible).

Revit and civil 3d
sandiegophil posted a topic in Civil 3D & LDDHello, I have about 28 years of autocad experience, the last 10 being almost exclusively civil 3d. I am interested in adding revit to my skill set. Does anyone have a recommendation for tutorials? I know it took s bit of time to tackle c3d and I'm wondering what it will take to really get a handle on revit. Also, is anyone under the impression that revit will eventually 'absorb' c3d. Any and all input, personal experience and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Regards, Phil

Designing wolfs head (help)
RyanHarbird posted a topic in Design SoftwareHello Guys Im new to sketchup and only played around with photoshop and GIMP so im new to 3D modelling and only been on the program for around 3 hours. As you may have guessed i'm still pretty bad having not had time to properly practice. Anyway I am looking to design 3 wolves heads in to a metal side case of a PC.If its possible the coloured parts would be the bits that are cut out of the case .Eventually its a project as im in to PC case modding and would like to take it to a company and get it case cut in to the side. How would I go around this and is there a tutorial that could help me that you could think of. Any help would be a benefit right now as im completely stuck. Thank you in advance Ryan
Building Association Lists: A Simple Block Counter [AutoLISP Tutorial]
Lee Mac posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLI've spent some time writing up the following tutorial which aims to demonstrate how to construct a simple block counter and in the process give the user an introduction to association lists and dotted pairs: Building Association Lists: A Simple Block Counter The tutorial is a step-by-step walkthrough of the process of creating the block counter, with diversions here and there to explain the various concepts used by the program. Throughout the tutorial I've also tried to explain why every part of the code is used in the way that it is, rather than providing the reader with a block of code and leaving some parts without an explanation (for example, why the program should include (princ) or (prin1) as the last expression etc.). I welcome your feedback on the tutorial - Is it too simplified? Is it too long? Too boring? All of the above? Feel free to also point out any typos, as these can be difficult to spot when proof-reading your own work. Thanks, Lee

Autocad MEP, who is really using the program?
myself posted a topic in MEPhello everybody, im making this question because in my company we are thinking about really step forward from regular Autocad to MEP, until now we have been only creating some 3d models of some specific parts of some projects to explain better how the installation should be done. However now, my boss is pretty excited with MEP and he things that we should start a project on MEP and design everything on it, even the duct size should be calculated on MEP and the Air flow should be taken from the spaces requirements available when we import from GBXML files. My question is, is it anyone really using the program this way? Is it everything working properly, which problems have you faced when you start your first project with MEP? Thank you very much for you help, Best regards, Rui Silva
Tutorial: Debugging Code with the Visual LISP Editor
Lee Mac posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLJust finished writing this tutorial with the aim to provide an overview of the various ways to debug code using the Visual LISP Editor. I've tried to incorporate many facilities of the VLIDE into the tutorial, so excuse me if it seems a tad drawn out in places. Of course, comments for improvements are welcome, along with the discovery of any typos & mistakes (there are bound to be some!) http://lee-mac.com/debugvlide.html Enjoy, Lee
how to choose the best video tutorail from youtube?
khoshravan posted a topic in AutoCAD GeneralIn youtube I have seen many AutoCad tutorials. Recently I am watching a lot and have learned many valuable things. But in the mean time I have found some to be vague, in different languages which I can't understand and is just waste of time. As it is free, I can't blame anybody, but I was thinking of finding sort of criteria to evaluate them and just go for the proper one. One thing is the keywords of what I am looking for. After watching for a while I can judge from posters name which one worth to watch. Number of previous watchers could be another criteria. If members who have used youtube as a tutorial tool, I will be happy to hear their opinions.
