Show synopsis Autodesk Architectural Desktop: An Advanced Implementation Guide is a concise manual focused squarely on making Architectural Desktop (ADT) a success in your organization. This manual delves deep into advanced techniques and proven strategies to deploy ADT throughout your entire organization and make it a success. The book follows a logical progression through issues of installation, setup, configuration, training, customization and standardization. Beginning with a thorough look at your firm's work style and project types, the reader is guided through how to mesh existing practices with the ADT "Building Model" concept. Giving you the tools required to assess your current CAD standards you will build a checklist of action items useful throughout the deployment process. A large collection of topics critical to successful implementation is dealt with both philosophically and in numerous hands-on exercises. Many of the tutorials in this book reference both Imperial and Metric Units! (Additional Metric-based exercises are provided in the online companion.) Topics like Layering Standards, the Display System, optimal use of Color, building a Content Library, Interoperability with Autodesk VIZ and sharing files with consultants are just some of those covered. At the conclusion of this manual, you will be armed with all the necessary tools to build a successful implementation plan uniquely suited to your practice.
