Third-party tools enhance the Autodesk experience

If you're reading this, you're already well entrenched in the Autodesk camp. You're an unabashed fan of Autodesk products. Yet sometimes you need a little something more to make Autodesk products perfect for your particular environment. Enter the add-in, add-on, or third-party app-whatever you call it, few Autodesk product users haven't at least shopped them at some point and scores are using them regularly to great advantage.

The June 2013 issue of AUGIWorld tips the hat to third-party apps compatible with Autodesk products. For example, AutoCAD Architecture guru Melinda Heavrin explains how to Create, Edit & Share with Google SketchUp.

Join Shaun Farrell and Rory MacTague on Adventures with Revit Plug-Ins. And Monica Petersen helps you tell the difference between stellar apps and also-rans with her article Five Tips for Selecting Quality Apps.
