Norconsult is a leading multidisciplinary consultancy firm with headquarters in Sandvika, Norway. Their services are geared towards community planning and design, and they have become a leading player both nationally and internationally.
Here you can find some structural analysis examples of renowned projects they worked on using Autodesk tools.
This session will present the new National Institute of Steel Detailers (NISD) curriculum for the Certificate of Development in Building Information Modeling (CD-BIM) and the program's sample BIM Execution Plan. This progressive new curriculum is free online and was done in a collaborative partnership with USIBD and BIMForum. It highlights the foundational elements of BIM and additionally covers key topics such as model element Level of Development (LOD) in conjunction with the 2015 BIMForum’s LOD Specification. The course will show the fundamentals of creating and implementing good modeling practices as well as quality control and checking. It will also include the creation of shop drawings, details, erection drawings, and other fundamental elements of steel fabrication, such as advanced bills of materials. The curriculum is geared toward students as well as seasoned professionals new to BIM. It introduces individuals to the BIM industry and helps create the next generation of BIM developers and detailers.
Discover NISD and the new Certificate of Development in BIM (CD-BIM). Learn what is covered in the sample CD-BIM’s BIM Execution Plan. Understand how the CD-BIM works with the AGC CM-BIM to aid contractors in construction clarity. Discover the role of those in BIM Development and how to introduce more to the profession. Discover the new certification process for those developing BIM.

In the world of structural engineering, we are challenged to make several structural analysis models, to find the best solution, and to be the leaders in economic structure design. React Structures + Dynamo are great solutions that help with this. It speeds up the modelling process of parametric structures which are very often used by structural engineers.
One of our partners MasterGraphics is organizing a series of Simulation courses for the following products:
Autodesk Simulation CFD
Autodesk Simulation Mechanical
Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis Professional
The Robot Structural Analysis Professional training is scheduled at the end of March. This course is designed for anyone who plans on using Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis, or wants to have a better understanding of code oriented structural design. This 3-day course will introduce students to Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis. You will learn fundamentals of advanced frame analysis and code checking of structures for static and transient, wind and seismic, loads for steel and concrete. Focus will be on the strengths of Robot Structural Analysis with AISC steel design, ACI concrete design, wind analysis, and seismic analysis. Program interface capabilities will also be covered.
While you have been working with your model you add more and more specific attributes of a particular type to the project, making the list of the available attributes in a project longer. In the meantime making some changes in your model may result in having some attributes available on the active list but not used in the model. As a result of this you may end up with a very long list of attributes. It makes the list of your attributes not clear and messy.
The Era of Connection tells us that project teams and how they delivery projects will be more connected in the future. An example of this is already happening in timber panelized construction. We see engineers and builders using #StrucSoft #MWF for Revit to generate BIM-based structural analysis, design and detailing documentation and CNC files that drive #Howick machines.
As Autodesk React Structures grows in awareness and adoption, a number of customers have asked what is the future viability of Robot Structural Analysis. To help share some insight with our customers, we want to give you some background on what spawned the React Structures project, where we are currently with it, and where we want it to go with React Structures and Robot Structural Analysis Professional collectively.
React Structures came to be by way of customer feedback. We heard from many of our customers that they were ready for a new, modern, purpose-built analysis platform. They are getting tired of the tools they have been using and didn’t feel that they were continuing to meet their needs. They liked the capabilities of Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis Professional, but wanted something more tightly integrated with the rest of the Autodesk portfolio. They also needed a solution that was easy to learn and easy to use. We took a good hard look at the technologies we had, the needs and feedback of our customers, and the feedback from a lot of potential customers. We started to reimagine the workflows that engineers need to complete to design their projects, and we started to look at what a modern analysis tool should provide and how it should behave. Building on the proven and trusted foundation of Robot Structural Analysis Professional, which is used by tens of thousands of engineers on countless projects around the globe, we started to rebuild our analysis platform. We are excited to share the first results, which you can download and try today as the React Structures Technical Preview.
What is the Future of Robot Structural Analysis Professional? Robot Structural Analysis Professional continues to be available as standalone offering and as a component of the Ultimate editions of Autodesk Building Design Suite and Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite. We will be making React Structures interoperable with Robot to help users of Robot complete workflows that React Structures may not fully support at this time. Robot continues to be an integral and viable part of the BIM to Fabrication workflow for users that need robust structural analysis and code based design features. We encourage Robot users to continue to invest in their preferred structural analysis solution while providing feedback on React Structures.
Autodesk Revit 2016 R2 improves the workflow in collaborative environments when working with linked files, by enabling users to unload links per user. The new “for me” option in the Unload command unloads the RVT link for the current user only. This new option enables you to keep RVT links unloaded for portions of the model they are not working on, increasing performance and improving memory usage, without affecting other project team members.
This speeds up individuals workflows so you can focus on what is important to you without impacting the rest of the project team
