Class Summary Overview
In this lab, you will get hands-on experience with Autodesk® Fabrication
FABmep™ and Autodesk® Fabrication CADmep™. We will explain the
best practice setup process to use design line technology within Autodesk
Fabrication software to efficiently convert engineering design intent
models from Autodesk® Revit® and AutoCAD® MEP software. We will
also cover how to use Autodesk Fabrication software to support detailing,
prefabrication, fabrication, and installation.
