The ABTT Training and Education Committee is proposing to run a day’s AutoCAD workshop at its Summer School at The Warwick Arts Centre in Coventry on Sunday 27 July 2014. The committee would very much like to welcome expressions of interest. The day will be open to anyone interested, and an attempt will be made to address any particular problems you would like to be covered.

CAD, Collaboration and The Cloud

More and more of us need to collaborate over distance. The days of dye lining and the posting of drawings has passed, now drawings and information are emailed back and forth.

Within AutoCAD there are tools to allow the sharing of files and common components of drawings for in house projects.

The Cloud and other tools offer opportunities to further streamline your projects and information sharing but how does it work with AutoCAD and similar programmes? Autodesk 360, not only offers storage space but also Cloud services that save your hardware as well as encouraging rapid review and editing of drawings from a central place.

How do other devices help (or hinder) this process? Smartphones and tablets can now run CAD ‘lite’ programmes so updates can be made in situ and uploaded to the Cloud.

The workshop will aim to inform users about these developments and explore potential applications in the entertainment environment.

Tutor: David Ripley

Costs: Course cost’s are expected to be £75 + VAT for ABTT Members & £100 + VAT for non-members.
