AecBatchStylesEditor 2009 Evaluation (http://www.cadaptation.com/home/index.php?option=com_docman&

Vendor description: AecBatchStylesEditor 2009 is a relatively new program that works with AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD MEP to configure, implement, maintain, and upgrade CAD standards. Control large libraries of Styles and Definitions, allowing batch-edit the internal settings of multiple AEC styles in a single process.


  • Property sets editing
  • Materials editing
  • Classifications editing
  • Display properties editing
  • Preferences

AecBatchStylesEditor 2009 Evaluation is freely distributable version, used as a means to evaluate the features and usage of the applet. It is fully-functional with regard to features and number of uses, with one restriction, all batch edits are limited to a single object type to edit: mass element styles. Object type is applicable to both AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD MEP host application platforms, and utilizes all of the components of AEC Styles and definitions that AecBatchStyesEditor may edit. Property set definitions, materials, classifications, and display properties.

Algor (http://offers.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/10/341709/?ch=USdotc
As your products become increasingly innovative and complex, you need to be more confident than ever in your design decisions. But building multiple physical prototypes will extend your timeline and increase your costs.

Autodesk Algor Simulation can help you if:
  • Your product designs include a wide range of materials - not just common metals.
  • Your product design team works in a multi-CAD environment but still needs to perform design analysis and validation.

Amethyst ShadowFX V3 (http://www.shadowfx.co.uk/download.htm)   
Amethyst ShadowFX is a sun and shadow analysis program for architects, designers and town planners. With the program, you can generate shadow profiles cast by buildings and other objects for any latitude, longitude and time of year. Version 3 of the program represents a significant upgrade. With the program, you can: Interactively build a 3D model that allows you to examine the shading effects of adjacently placed buildings. The following roof types are supported: flat, mono-pitched, gabled, hipped, gambrel and mansard. Interactively design window shading in 3D. With the built-in shade designer, horizontal overhangs, vertical fins, pergolas and screening objects can be positioned in 3D, and animations can be run to simulate shading effects. You can import your own 3D designs into the program, and run shading animations. A number of polar and orthographic sun path diagrams can be generated. Animations can be run on these to track the movement of the sun. A number of reference reports can be generated for sunrise and sunset times, horizontal and vertical shadow angles, angles of incidence, and shadow length and direction. Shadow data can be generated for inclined surface planes at any orientation for any latitude, longitude and time of year. Shadow data can be saved to AutoCAD DXF file format for import into CAD programs.

Atlas 2.0 (http://www.rekenwonder.com/atlas.htm)   
Vendor description: Atlas 2.0 is a application for architects and construction engineers. Atlas computes the resulting moments and reaction forces for a given beam with loads applied to it using Cross' method. Its typical application would be to optimize joint positions in purlins or beams. Maximum bending moments can easily be calculated.

Autodesk Solar Radiation Technology Preview (http://labs.autodesk.com/utilities/ecotect/)   
Technology Preview for Revit 2011 to understand and quantify solar radiation on various surfaces of your conceptual building model. Using the Autodesk Solar Radiation Technology Preview during the conceptual design stage of your project can help you make informed design decisions about building shape, orientation, and shading strategies early on when changes are least expensive. The technology preview uses the geometry of conceptual massing elements from Revit and calculates the amount of solar radiation hitting the selected surfaces of the massing shapes, based on location and weather data. It is possible to display the distribution and availability of solar radiation over an entire building or even a city block. This can be particularly useful when considering shading requirements or assessing the best areas to place photovoltaics for maximum collection. The Autodesk Solar Radiation Technology Preview is modeless and delivers an integrated experience within the Revit environment. This experience is made possible by the Analysis Visualization Framework, Dynamic Model Update, and other new API’s made available with the Autodesk Revit 2011 family of products.

BIM Family Toolkit (http://labs.autodesk.com/utilities/bim_family_toolkit/)   
BIM Family Toolkit allows you to share parametric family information from Inventor to Revit. You then use this family information in Revit to create geometry whose attributes match what was imported from Inventor. In other words, what you create in Revit reflects what you created in Inventor. For example, the doors and windows in your Revit models match the doors and windows you have in Inventor. To get started, you download a zip file from Labs. This file has separate installers for both Inventor and Revit.
