Something for Everyone

Who doesn't love a smorgasbord? There are plenty of choices and nobody walks away without finding something that pleases. For AUGI members, the educational menu is equally varied in the May 2013 issue of AUGIWorld magazine. Yes, there's something for everyone.

For example, help yourself to "Execution is Key to Implementation," Philip Russo's article targeted to Revit Structure users. If your interest is Autodesk Simulation CFD, you'll savor John Evans' look at the latest release in
"New Features and Enhancements in CFD."

Or perhaps you want to do what you have been doing, only better. If that's the case, sample Walt Sparling's "Using AutoCAD Efficiently" with a bonus AutoCAD tip from Michael Beall. There are many more choices in this issue, so dig in.
