- First you will need to see if your computer is a 32 bit or 64-bit machine (Mac and Linux users can skip this first process). There are two ways to check your system. One way to check is to click on windows explorer, and on the left-hand side right click on "This PC"(Windows 8+), "my computer"(Windows 7) and select properties.
This will bring up the Systems prompt where you will find out what System type you currently have.

In just 2 days, on September 22, Advanced Solutions will launch the second annual Future Shock II, a virtual conference featuring Autodesk industry innovators. You'll hear from luminaries from around the country sharing their experiences in leading technology innovation who will help organizations take their technology to the next level. More than 20 on-demand and live sessions will feature:
In a recent update and clean up of a Civil 3D template for a client, I ran into an issue with the Grading configuration.
Looking at the Grading collection (from Settings tab of the Toolspace) there were Grading Criteria Sets and individual Criteria that are duplicates with a dot and number (.#) as prefixes. Even in a clean and empty drawing, you will not be able to erase them. If you attempt this, you might find yourself in an unexpected software crash, regardless of the Service Pack.
Not too long ago, the cost of performing high-level analysis and simulation was a complicated and costly process, that was rarely necessary. However, things have changed in today's business climate, of being low-cost and highly competitive in this fast-paced world. We have to be able to iterate and improve designs quickly, with accuracy, and without the burden and time-consuming nature of prototyping. Who has the budget to do that these days? This leaves us with one alternative... Simulation!

Your email dings with another email from Autodesk… Bummer, it’s another Customer Satisfaction Survey… You don’t have the time to respond, you delete, and you move on with your day.
You've just lost an opportunity to comment on your Autodesk Channel Partner. A chance to let them know how they’re doing and how to improve their support of you, the Autodesk customer.
There has been a lot of rumbling from the industry about the differences between Autodesk Inventor and Fusion 360. This rumbling is not just from software users, but also happening in the Autodesk Reseller Channel.
First, I would like to inform you, the reader, that there is a place for both products in the mechanical design industry. This post will cover the comparison of Autodesk Inventor Professional to fully function of Fusion 360.
Don't miss this opportunity to tour the newly renovated Dock1053! Learn more about this exciting project by Grubb Ventures as they take you on a tour of this amazing space. We will also hear from Kris Lengieza of Stiles Construction as he shares implementation strategies that have helped transform the way they do business and learn valuable techniques whether you are an architect, engineer, or contractor. Also, enjoy complimentary food and drinks while networking with peers in the Raleigh AEC community.
The AEC industry is on the cusp of a technology revolution. However technology is only a tool, tools are only as good as the people using them, and people can only be as effective as the process allows them to be. So how do we go about implementing technology on our projects and within our organizations? With more than 70% of all change initiatives in an organization failing we need to be sure we have the correct approach.
