Publishing Update 10/22/21

Hello everyone!
It’s been a while since you’ve seen a publishing update, so I wanted to quickly fill you in on what the Content team has been up to.
There have been a couple of custom content projects we’ve completed; Baker Baynes’ Scan to BIM and Autodesk’s Fusion Certification prep. A big shout out to our writers and copy editors on getting the Autodesk project done. It was challenging and a heavy lift, but they really stepped up and delivered.
For CADLearning content, we’ve been working on our newest product, Construction Cloud. I’m happy announce we’ve just published 3 more topics to Portal; Cloud Models for Revit, Desktop Connector, and View Files.  We’re continuing to create more lessons for Construction Cloud, so I’ll be sure to keep you updated as additional content rolls out.
That’s all for now. Thanks again to everyone on the Content team for their hard work!

Content Projects Update: Everything you want to know.

Content Projects Update: Everything you want to know.

We checked in with the content team this week to find out what professional projects they’ve been working on and for who! We’ve all been hearing chatter about our partners Baker Baynes, and obviously the crowd favorite- Autodesk. So here is what is officially up:

Autodesk: The team is currently working on Fusion certification prep, which includes 4 separate projects within the main project. Turning has been completed, Simulation is being worked on currently, and 3-axis and 5 axis/multi axis will follow.

Baker Baynes: Currently working on Scan to BIM for Buildings. It will cover the entire process from point cloud geometry extraction to finalizing geometries in Revit.

NCCER: NCCER stands for National Center for Construction, and they are a nonprofit organization that develops standardized construction and maintenance curriculum. We recently finished a project for training on accessing and working within NCCER’s Testing System and we are beginning work on a new project for their Registry System.

Revizto: We are starting a certification prep project with Revizto that will focus on the criteria needed to obtain Revizto Certification.

Worldsview: Worldsview is another South African company, and we are currently working on a project that will include TopCon, Vertical Construction with GTL 1000 & integration with Autodesk and vertical construction design with BIM360.

 

Lots of big things are happening with our partners and customers.

Stay tuned to catch up on more professional projects soon.

Afternoon all!

A quick but important update; the Navisworks 2022 product refresh is complete!

The final topic, Quantification, is published and live in Portal.

Hats off and a big thank you to David Cohn for tackling this project; I’m sure it was no easy task.

Afternoon everyone and happy Friday!
I’m here with an exciting Publishing update.  An all new AutoCAD Electrical product is now live on portal! This is a total makeover; new videos, new datasets, new questions, and a new assessment. As such, the old AutoCAD Electrical IEC product has been deactivated and is no longer available in portal.
We’ve also pushed out a handful of new and updated Navisworks lessons to fully flesh out a few topics in that product. More lessons are currently in the pipeline and should be available soon™.
The Content Team has also been very, very hard at work on some projects that are part of our Content as a Service initiative. We have completed a ‘Phase 1’ of both NCCER and Fusion CAM Turning custom content. This content was developed a bit different than how we do internally (which brought unique challenges), but it’s been a learning experience through which we’ve come out the other side side stronger. A BIG shout-out and thank you to Nick, Ash, and Andrea for their efforts on these projects. Their lift was large and they absolutely slayed it.
As always, you can consult the publishing spreadsheet for a list of the newly published content.

Thanks again to everyone on the Content Team. Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday everyone!

I have lots of good news to carry us into the weekend.

Robot Structural Analysis is published and live in Portal! This is a new product for our library. Robot Structural Analysis is structural load analysis software that verifies code compliance and uses BIM-integrated workflows to exchange data with Revit. It can help create more resilient, constructible designs that are accurate, coordinated, and connected to BIM.

We have also added new product years for Vehicle Tracking. Upon SME review, no major changes in the software were noted; so, with just a couple tweaks to a few lessons we feel confident in applying 2019, 2020, and 2021 years to the product.

Please refer to the publishing spreadsheet for more detail.

While this is update is short in length, having RSA published is a BIG deal! Thanks to everyone on the team for making the best content in the business! Have a great weekend everyone!
