CAD Shack: East Coast CAD Kicks it up a Notch

CAD Shack

East Coast CAD Kicks it up a Notch. East Coast CAD has had Fabrication for AutoCAD MEP software for years, but it added MEP Fabrication Version 1.0 See East Coast CAD announcement here. For those interested in seeing MEP Fabrication in action, taking system layouts from an engineering drawing in Revit MEP 2011 and converting the duct to manufacturable geometry, a live webinar presentation will take place on Wednesday, Jan.

CAD Shack: Happy 7th Birthday to CAD Shack

CAD Shack

Happy 7th Birthday to CAD Shack. 7 years today I got frustrated with an editor that changed an article of mine, and I started the CAD Shack Blog so I could write what ever I wanted, when I wanted. CAD Shack, always keep thinking that way., CAD Shack VIPs. RobiNZ CAD Blog.

CAD Shack: CAD Works Content Browser

CAD Shack

CAD Works Content Browser. Im grumpy because I want a Bell and Gossett Revit family quick and I do not want to install CAD Works Revit add on to get it. This may mean that I am old and set in my ways, and I should just get over the fact that I need to install CAD Works Content Browser to get this family. I think the guys at CAD Works do great work and I hope the family I eventually get will be fine, but the extra step and required connection to CAD Works irritates me.

CAD Shack: BIMBO

CAD Shack

Some weeks back I was planning on having lunch with a CAD/BIM manager from a competing firm HDR. I spent quite a bit of time at his firm consulting, and we still like to get together to discuss CAD and BIM issues. Out of the blue another CAD/BIM from manager from Schemmer who was a student of mine called to say that some old Avatech buddies were going to take him out to lunch that same day and maybe I would like to join in.

BIM for Reinforced Concrete – From Design to Detailing in One Model

BIM & Beam

Segmentation is dictated by engineering, architectural, or fabrication requirements, and its reinforcement is determined by the structural engineer. CADS RC3D has been designed to enhance the placement, annotation, and bar marking of rebar in 3D structures.

Filling in BIM Gaps - EastCoast Design to Fabrication

Revit OpEd

EastCoast CAD/CAM announced on November 30th that they are now supporting a workflow from AutoCAD MEP and Revit MEP models to their fabrication software. The workflow eliminates redrawing, and delivers fabrication-ready models inside AutoCAD MEP for final detailed coordination and downloading to highly efficient sheet metal plasma cutting machines.
