Third-Party Apps for Autodesk
There's no need to sell AUGI members on the power of Autodesk software. That said, there are areas within the products that could use a little extra efficiency or functionality that makes the base software a better fit for a particular niche within an industry.
Autodesk has a long history of not only encouraging and accommodating power users and software developers who wish to produce third-party applications, but has recently begun showcasing these third-party offerings on the Autodesk Exchange.
The June 2015 issue of AUGIWorld explores some of what is currently available from Autodesk third-party developers.
For Revit MEP users, Todd Shackelford presents "What's in the Exchange for Revit MEP," which features a nice collection of apps he found in the Autodesk Exchange.
In "Drawing Purge: Quick, Efficient Clean Up" Murray Clack goes in-depth on software that removes unused data from AutoCAD drawings for maximum efficiency.
