Autodesk has long championed third-party applications that add functionality to its core software. The Autodesk Developer Network was formed years ago to support the Autodesk third-party developer community in the creation of solutions for users in niche markets and those with other specialized needs.

The June 2014 issue of AUGIWorld looks at some of the third-party apps for Autodesk products.

For example, in "A Robust & Versatile Dynamo," author Marcello Sgambelluri has high praise for Dynamo, a programming aid for Revit and other Autodesk products.

"How ACA Users Benefit from SketchUp" has author Melinda Heavrin demonstrating the advantages of Google SketchUp for AutoCAD Architecture users.

And Shawn Herring presents "Easy & Effective: ProSoft PowerTools," which explores a collection of tools for civil designers and engineers.

AUGIWorld May 2014 Issue Released!

AUGIWorld May 2014
You have successfully convinced management that you need to upgrade to the newest Autodesk software release. Now what? What happens after the software is unpacked or downloaded? It would be great if all you had to do was install it. But there’s so much more to a successful implementation than the mere act of installing the software. What you need is an implementation strategy.

Fortunately, the May 2014 issue of AUGIWorld has a wealth of information to assist you when implementing Autodesk 2015 releases.

Philip Russo fills you in on what to expect when implementing Revit Structure in his article "So You Want to Upgrade to Revit Structure 2015."

In "Getting Over the Implementation Bubble," David Butts draws from his own experience bringing Revit MEP into his firm.

And Curt Moreno encourages you to "Put on Your Implementation Hat" and plan, wisely and well, for a successful AutoCAD 2015 launch. And this is just the beginning in an issue packed with implementation strategies.
