AUGIWorld August 2018 -- Easier Collaboration

AUGIWorld August 2018
AUGIWorld devotes one issue every year to collaboration, and for good reason. Now everyone agrees that it’s vital for disciplines to work effectively together, but how to go about it? This year’s focus on the topic revisits techniques for effective collaboration and introduces some new tools designed to make collaboration easier.

“Collaboration in the Cloud,” by Shaun Bryant, discusses advances from Autodesk that are making it easy for users to collaborate.

In “Online Collaboration for 3ds Max Users,” Brian Chapman highlights four websites that foster collaboration among 3ds Max users around the globe.

There’s much more in the August 2018 issue on collaboration and other topics. Enjoy!

AUGIWorld July 2018 -- Sharpen Your Management Skills

AUGIWorld July 2018
Management, when used as a noun, may evoke images of a person in the “corner office” or a dozen people sitting around a conference room table. But the action of managing? Well, that”s practiced every day, many times a day, by literally every employee. You are managing your day, your workload, your project, your task, your data.

With that in mind, the July 2018 issue of AUGIWorld offers a number of management-related articles relevant to all.

For example, Jeff Frye takes on “Managing Civil 3D Data”—beginning with the project kickoff meeting and continuing through standards, data shortcuts, and a lot more.

Brian Chapman delivers help for 3ds Max users in “Managing Assets for 3ds Max” in which he discusses integration and control of assets in production environments.

And there is much more in this issue to help you hone your management skills.
