Class ID - MP1448
AutoCAD® Revit® MEP: Space Schedules for Design Verification and Validation
Space schedules are one of the most underused tools in the AutoCAD Revit MEP software arsenal. This class will give you the tools to go beyond how you are using Revit for your design. In this class we will explore the diverse possibilities of Revit MEP space schedules for verifying and validating your design in a straightforward and easily understood format. We will focus on using space schedules to verify LEED® points, compare design calculations to actual modeled conditions, create and use calculated values, resolve improper units, and implement conditional cell formatting for quick design condition verification. We will also cover the ability to reference space information in other schedule categories, as well as embedding schedules from other categories into space schedules. Stop fighting the software and start harnessing the information in your model to help validate your design and verify that your design intent is actually making it onto the documentation.

Dirty Laundry: Cleaning Up Your Sheets with AutoCAD® Sheet Set Manager
Dirty laundry is no fun! Many have tried it; many have given up on it. This class will show you how to clean those sheets! Sheet Set Manager (SSM), in my opinion, is one of the most underutilized tools available to all AutoCAD software users across the AutoCAD platform. It's designed to save time and money. Understanding SSM can help improve your efficiency and productivity. Impress your colleagues and managers as you modify entire project sheet sets in minutes versus hours. Change common sheet elements, such as page numbering, sheet titles, dates, revision data, and custom fields. In this class, you will learn the ease of how to set up a title block/cover sheet template with fields built into it. We will show you best practices for taking advantage of SSM. You will learn all about fields and the ways to use them in a sheet set to improve your productivity. Finally, you will learn how to set up plotting for a sheet set so that SSM will plot your drawings for you, including e-transmitting those drawings.
Class ID - CI2837
Hidden Survey Gems: Using the COGO Editor and Mapcheck Analysis Tools and the New Survey Tools in AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2013
See how easy it is to input data in the Coordinate Geometry Editor and run results and reports from one simple interface. Some deeds require a lot more input than the typical tools will allow, so one of the only ways to recreate some deeds is by using this COGO Editor. We will also explore some other useful COGO tools. The Mapcheck Analysis tools are a great way of checking things as well, so we will review how to use that tool.
