AU 2011 Call for Proposals Ends May 6!

Share your knowledge and expertise as an AU 2011 speaker. We are accepting proposals through May 6, 2011. This is your chance to earn the respect of your peers, move your career forward, and receive a FREE 3-Day Conference-Only Pass to the AU 2011 Conference in Las Vegas. Learn more.

MEP Design and Engineering

The MEP Design and Engineering track presents topics that are important to MEP and building systems engineers, designers, and drafters. MEP topics are also important to BIM/CAD managers who want to learn more about Autodesk software for building information modeling (BIM), performance analysis, design, and documentation. We invite proposals for MEP engineering classes that feature AutoCAD® MEP and Autodesk® Revit® MEP software.

Classes will be appropriate for intermediate and advanced users, with intermediate classes that help users move from pilot to production. Classes will discuss how to move to a BIM workflow with Revit MEP at the core, while remaining productive by using AutoCAD® and AutoCAD MEP for increased design and drafting productivity and to create construction documentation.

Topic Categories

Class proposals should address one or more of the following topic categories:

MEP Design

BIM using Autodesk Revit MEP at the core of the design process for fabrication, estimation, building performance, operation and maintenance, and the lifecycle of a building

MEP design from concept through the entire lifecycle

Design Collaboration

Workflows for dispersed teams that leverage collaboration software, such as Autodesk Bluestreak, Autodesk Revit Worksharing, Autodesk Revit Server, and Autodesk Vault

How different products within Autodesk® Building Design Suites can be used together

Getting a first project off the ground

Methods for enhancing integrated project delivery (IPD) between MEP engineers and architects, structural engineers, and contractors, including fabrication

Clash detection using Autodesk® Navisworks®

Design Visualization

Visualization techniques using Autodesk® Showcase® and Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design

Interoperability workflows using Autodesk FBX® and consistent material libraries to transfer data from Revit to Autodesk 3ds Max Design

Design Analysis

Rapid energy analysis and modeling workflows using Revit MEP and Autodesk Green Building Studio®

Daylighting and lighting analysis using Autodesk 3ds Max Design

Using the Green Building XML (gbXML) open schema to export data from Autodesk Revit Architecture, Autodesk Revit Structure, and Autodesk 3ds Max Design for use in energy analysis and building systems calculations

Reality capture using point clouds and image modeling

Design Documentation

Leveraging building MEP designs to extract construction documentation such as sections, elevations, schedules, and construction details for both new and renovation/retrofit projects

Core MEP modeling

Reality capture using point clouds for documentation

Advanced topics on AME and RME family creation

Tips and Tricks

Productivity tips and tricks for MEP designers, drafters, and BIM/CAD managers across all products within the Building Design Suites
