Autodesk 2015 Products are Here

By Matt Dillon

Most, if not all of the Autodesk 2015 products are now shipping and are available for download, with the Suites soon to follow.

As always, we strongly recommend that you, your CAD Manager, BIM Manager, or whoever handles this sort of thing download and install the new software on a non-production machine first to explore the new features, before rolling it out to your entire office. Don’t forget to disable your anti-virus software before installing, and when you download, do not use the “Install Now” option. Use the “Download Now” (Download Manager) option ideally, or failing that, use the “Browser Download” option.

Last week I created a post on downloading Autodesk Fabrication content from the building3dcontent.com and since then an update to the Fabrication products has come out, SP2b, which repaired a great feature. Here is a video on downloading or updating content from building3dcontent.com from within the program.

Downloading Autodesk Fabrication Content

By Scott Hendricks

I have an updated post that has a simpler download method. You can find it here.

Autodesk on 11/28/13 added over 7,000 parts to their imperial catalog on the Building3dContent.com site, from Victaulic, Nibco and Anvil. This made me think that it would be a good time to put together a how-to on getting that content into your configuration.
