Meeting Reminder for Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Fellow RAM Members:

This time around, we’ll take a look at Parametric Constraints; presented by Tom Stoeckel, Global Technical Lead – AutoCAD Product Support. This feature tends to build a certain type of “intelligence” into the drawing, i.e., when one dimension (parameter) is changed, so do others, based on setup. This video on Constraints involve Geometric (relationships between objects), and Dimensional (Dynamic, Annotational & Reference). It can be confusing, but is a wonderful feature once understood. We’ll entertain questions afterwards.

Be sure to bring your friends, and co-workers. Family members are invited. As usual, there will be light food and beverages. The meeting time is at 5:30 pm at the Human Services Building of the Henrico County Government Center at 8600 Dixon Powers Drive. …see you there!

Wrapup of May Meeting

Fellow RAM Members,

At our previous meeting, the video, Pressure Piping and Gravity Networks was reviewed. We were fortunate to have new attendee Eric Roberson in attendance. Eric has experience in this field and guided us throughout the night. As we watched the video, we paused during the presentation to address the concerns of all those in attendance. Made by Brian Hailey of the Autodesk Team the Civil 3D program took us through the basic commands of the AutoCAD layout. There were plenty of refreshments for everyone. The meeting concluded with a brief discussion of future plans. Keep in touch for the June announcement.

Meeting Reminder for Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Fellow RAM Members:

…sorry for the late notice and hope that all of you had a wonderful Memorial Day celebration. Tonight we’ll get into a repeat of a previous meeting which focused on a Civil 3D topic: Pressure Piping and Gravity Networks. Presented by Autodesk Technical Specialist, Brian Hailey, this video demonstrates the pipe modeling tools and provides a peek at some of the content available in Civil 3D for creating 2D or 3D pipe networks. At this previous meeting, an array of questions was brought forth; we look forward to entertaining those participants in part two of this review.

Be sure to bring your friends and co-workers. Family members are invited. There will be light refreshments and beverages. The meeting time is at 5:30 at the Human Services Building of the Henrico County Government Center at 8600 Dixon Powers Drive. …see you there! Keep in mind, we’re also on Facebook.

Summary of April 2014 Meeting

This meeting proved to be a little challenging. First of all, with the threat of in climate weather, attendance was low. In spite of that, we had a rather notable exchange of information. The Tips and Tricks format drew a lot of interest from the few attendees. Recently joined member, Bobby Hanks, led the way. We entertained questions from within the AutoCAD structure to support items like subscription benefits. The comparison of AutoCAD with MicroStation will take place in the future. Stay connected, stayed tuned!

Meeting Reminder for Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Fellow RAM Members:

This time around we’ll delve into Tips and Tricks. Needless to say, Autodesk software is often complicated. What complicates it even more is the individualized setup of each seat. Therefore, explanations, workarounds, input and opinions come into play to complete the assigned task. Whatever questions you may have, please come prepared to have us address them. If we can’t answer them, we’ll work to find answers for you. And if time permits, we’ll run a brief comparison of AutoCAD with MIcroStation.

Be sure to bring your friends and co-workers. Family members are invited. There will be light refreshments and beverages. The meeting time is at 5:30 at the Human Services Building of the Henrico County Government Center at 8600 Dixon Powers Drive. …see you there!

Summary of Wednesday’s Meeting (3/26-2014)

Fellow RAM Members:

With the focus on infrastructure and data management our theme for the night was about integrating different programs. Via “Go to Meeting” webcast, Senior Technical Specialist with Autodesk, Inc., James Wedding, accompanied by Rob Rasnik, reviewed Autodesk InfraWorks 360 and examined how the Model Builder function can build a model in minutes. GIS data can be brought in to add more detail, Road Design and Bridge Design modules can be used to truly design new conditions, and the StoryBoard functionality makes fly-through and presentation renderings a snap.  The speed and functionality of this setup will give clients a more “real world” view of any project, instantly.

Afterwards, they addressed numerous questions, concerns and input from the attendants.
