Using Autodesk Factory Design Suite to Layout More Than Just a Factory

April 25, 2016 By Brad Bland Leave a comment

If you have Factory Design Suite installed, a designer can break the mold of traditional factory layouts and design more than just a factory floor. The software can be used to layout a computer lab, break room, or the shop floor of your own building, for future renovations. Use Factory Assets to layout your current configuration of the shop floor, using existing forklifts, tool boxes, welding stations, and shelving etc.
