Autodesk's Paths to Collaborations

Because nobody works in a vacuum, sooner or later someone down the line is going to need to review and work with your design. Luckily for Autodesk product users, easy collaboration is as close as your favorite Autodesk product.

In the August 2015 issue of AUGIWorld, our authors explore popular Autodesk products for their built-in collaboration enhancers.

For example, D. Matthew Facer finds a plethora of collaboration features in the Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite, dubbing it "Your All-Purpose Collaboration Tool.".

Similarly, users of Revit Structure will pick up insight on the collaboration capabilities in the product from Lola Carbajal's article, "Collaboration Motivation."

The August issue has more on collaboration and a variety of other topics. Enjoy!
