AUGIWorld December 2011 is Now Available!

AUGIWorld December 2011 Issue Released!

Can there be any doubt about the value of information sharing in the design industry?

Whether it’s a quick question-and-answer session with the person in the next cubicle, or following an online blogger or discussion group guru to see what they’re thinking, or reading the latest from a published author, we rely on the opinions, perspective, and insight from those we admire to help us become better producers in our own environment.

The December issue of AUGIWorld serves up plenty of perspective from industry professionals.

In "Halfway to Paperless," Bryan Thompson offers his solution for getting us beyond just talking about a paperless office and actually realizing it. Melinda Heavrin, AutoCAD Architecture expert, thoroughly discusses "Material Matters" within the product. In "Stuck in Neutral, Christopher Fugitt offers his view on AutoCAD Civil 3D and what is needed to make that product all it could be.

Donnie Gladfelter has served for 2 years on the Board. Donnie has assisted AUGI greatly in areas of Communications and Web Assets.   We wish them all well and hope that they stay connected in some way to AUGI.

AUGIWorld October 2011 Released - Learn about Customizin​g Autodesk Products

Aw201110_200x260For countless Autodesk product users, the "box" is only the beginning. About a minute after their Autodesk product of choice is installed, users are busy customizing-a shortcut here, a bit of LISP there-until factory defaults are all but forgotten. In this issue, AUGIWorld writers dive into customization.

Matt Worland demonstrates sensible customization inside AutoCAD in "Managing Customization Files." In "Understanding the Customize User Interface," Melinda Heavrin introduces you to the ease of customization via the CUI Editor in AutoCAD Architecture. And Revit users who don't "do" code will be quite satisfied with Ibrahim Hakki's "Codeless Revit Customization."

In the October 2011 issue of AUGIWorld:

  • A Wicked Primer – So how do you solve wicked problems? With wicked tools, naturally. James Salmon defines all the terms.
  • Careful Customization – Just because 3ds Max users are often of the creative sort doesn't mean they can't customize as well as the tech types. Just do it wisely, advises author Tom Cipolla.
  • Working with Multiple Coordinate Systems – Roll up your sleeves and work along with author Richard Sincovec to convert COGO points in AutoCAD Civil 3D.
  • Playing by the iLogic Rules – Since Inventor's 2011 release, users have had a new tool in the toolbox called iLogic. Paul Munford shows how iLogic can turn you into a VB.net coding genius.
