Customization: A Little or a Lot

Nearly every user of an Autodesk product performs some degree of customization. Here, in the
October 2019 issue of AUGIWorld, our authors tackle a wide array of customization how-tos:
from colors in 3ds Max and 3D Views in Revit Structure, to the use of Dynamo for AutoCAD
Civil 3D customization. Dig in!

In the October 2019 issue:

  • Customizing Interface Colors – Brian Chapman with a tutorial on changing the colors within
    the 3ds Max interface as well as the ribbon.
  • Tradition(ish) Elevation Markers: Share | Load | Use – Jay B. Zallan advises those who use
    OOTB elevation markers in Revit to check out modified ones and, as the title recommends,
    share, load, and use.
  • Developing a Strategic Plan, Part One – Mark Kiker forecasts your professional life—with a
    Strategic Plan and without one. Once you’re on board (and it shouldn’t take long), he shows you
    how to get started.
  • Introduction to Dynamo for Customization – Brian Chapman dives into Dynamo for
    customizing in AutoCAD Civil 3D.
  • Revit API Starter Kit – David Raynor presents a starter kit for programming. Dynamo figures
    in, as do Macros and Add-ins.

    creating 3D views for internal and external coordination inside Revit Structure.
  • Controlling Your Calculations in AutoCAD – Sam Lucido explores the calculator
    functionality within AutoCAD to the fullest. Learn the basics (and beyond) of QuickCalc and the
    CAL command.
  • Inside Track – Brian Andresen presents new and enhanced AEC-related products. This month:
    Kreo plug-in for export/import of Revit models to Kreo, a cloud-based bid pricing solution; Hilti
    BIM/CAD Library for integrating models of Hilti objects into your project design; SteelGen,
    which allows quick pipe creation inside AutoCAD; Scope Box Purge, for finding and purging
    unused Scope Boxes in Revit; and Unhide Elements in View, which allows for the quick
    identification of hidden elements in the active view.
