Letter from the President - July 2021
Hello AUGI Members!
I hope you all are having a good summer and in addition to work you are taking some time off for family, friends, and fun.
“Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life” (Dolly Parton).
This month you’ll find articles on the use of 3rd party applications, like “3ds Max with Unreal/TwinMotion” and “3rd Party Add-Ons for Revit”. Also, look for an article on ESRI (GIS) and one on the CIM Project Suite, just to name a few.
For Autodesk software you can go to https://apps.autodesk.com to find whatever you might need. The applications are all categorized based on the specific Autodesk software as well as the need the app addresses. You’ll find apps that are free that provide small solutions and apps that have a price tag that provide more in-depth solutions.
I’m amazed at the array of apps that have been developed for mobile devices as well. Check the Apple Store, Google Play Store, or the Microsoft Store for apps like AutoCAD (mobile), Onshape 3D CAD, SketchUp Viewer, Draft Paper, CAD Pockets, DWG FastView, BIMx, and dozens more.
Having a few key applications to help get the job done will make your work life easier and help you focus on other things when you’re not at work!
I’m going to head out to my deck and relax in the shade with a good book and an ice-cold Diet Dr Pepper! Carry on and have a great summer!
