This e-book from Symetri looks at steel connections from a fresh perspective. It proposes that structural steel connections are more than simply a matter of connecting beams to beams, and beams to columns. They should represent not just physical and functional perfection, but also how construction professionals connect with each other.Learn more
Exploring the design challenges and opportunities faced by Revit & Civil 3D users
Architects and Engineers have a strong dependency on the technology that fundamentally underpins the design process. However, it has been recognised within the industry that there are limitations within the most commonly used software suites such as Autodesk.
Last year Symetri surveyed over 100 organisations regarding the challenges and opportunities for users working within Autodesk Revit and Civil 3D, to gain a better understanding.
Based on the data gathered, we generated this whitepaper which provides an insight into these areas, together with an overview of what Symetri has developed to address them (Naviate).
3 main take-aways:
- Time and Capacity | When there is a skills gap or lack of automation, the time needed to work on projects is unnecessarily high. Our customers are eager to find a way to get time back and use the increased capacity for valuable design work, quality assurance, innovation, upskilling and establishing a better work life balance.
- Productivity Toolsets and Consolidation | Some organisations already use several third-party tools to improve productivity, which clearly expresses the requirement for additional features and much needed automation to supplement the core technology. Whilst individually these can address a variety of gaps, procurement, management, compatibility, and user adoption is still a challenge.
- The User Community | Organisations are working in silos to improve their organisation’s working processes and in turn replicating considerable investment. There is a strong desire for a user-based community, dedicated to sharing the challenges faced and collectively working with specialist partners to overcome them.
