Webinar: Orca 3D June 13th – Register For Free

Orca3D Webinar

In the past, marine design with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) was expensive, required the expertise of a specialist, and wasn’t practical on ordinary engineering computers. Now Orca3D Marine CFD has changed all of that, coupling the power and ease-of-use of Rhino, Orca3D, and Simerics MP with specially designed templates to allow naval architects to easily and affordably analyse the hydrodynamic performance of displacement and planing hull designs with confidence in the results. Both monohulls and multihulls can be analysed, and the effects of local design features including steps, flaps, trim tabs, foils, and other appendages can be investigated with high fidelity. With Orca3D Marine CFD, it takes just minutes to set up and start an analysis, and it is practical to run on ordinary engineering laptops or desktops.

Previous webinars have presented the process of going from a hull model in Rhino/Orca3D to a completed CFD analysis (view the recording here). This next webinar will begin with a brief overview of that process and a presentation of benchmarks, and then transition into highlighting recent functionality and speed improvements made to the software. It will then move on to focus on how CFD can be used not just to analyse a design, but also improve it.

Presenters will include our experts as well as a customer who will discuss his real-world experience with Orca3D Marine CFD. After a Q&A session, we will present the very affordable pricing options, and the steps to follow to get a free 30-day evaluation of the software, including technical support.

Registration is limited, so reserve your place in the Orca3D webinar today. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Webinar: Improving Planting Design Workflows with Vectorworks Landmark

The Plant Object and Landscape Area tools in Vectorworks® Landmark are tailor made for the site design professional to create, document, and communicate solutions for projects of all sizes.

This presentation will demonstrate the robust 2D and 3D capabilities of these tools, which provide you the ability to visually convey your design intent in all phases of a site’s design while still evoking your personal style. From schematic phases to design development, Vectorworks allows you to easily add plant data that directly informs and parametrically controls plant objects.

Webinar attendees will be able to identify the benefits of Plant Object controls such as placement modes, including individual, hedged, or massed plantings, as well as fixed and variable settings regulating attributes such as plant height, spread, and spacing. Furthermore, whether you work in 2D or in 3D, attendees will see that new technologies also make the construction documentation phase easier thanks to customisable label styles and built-in worksheets that provide dynamic and accurate material counts as planting plans are finalised.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to optimise individual and firm-wide workflows when producing design development and construction documents by using advanced plant placement settings.
  • Understand the visualisation and analysis benefits of immediate 2D/3D representation of plants using parametric plant symbols that generate their own 3D plant graphics.
  • Realise efficiencies gained in design development by incorporating saveable style settings subsequently used to replicate data, size and spacing preferences on plants and landscape areas.

Webinar: Artlantis 7 Release

Abvent R&D have been hard at work in recent months updating Artlantis and are pleased to announce that Artlantis 7 has been released!

Artlantis 7  boasts a number of new features maximising calculation speed and rendering accuracy. In addition, this latest version introduces Twinlinker, an application allowing users to create and share virtual visits of their Artlantis and Twinmotion projects online instantly and easily. Join a live webinar led by Ildikó Szabó of Abvent who will walk you through a workflow demo of Artlantis 7, highlighting all the fantastic features this latest version has to offer.

New Features:

  • Improved artificial lights: The artificial light sampling method, which is more precise, improves the energy diffusion of the light sources in the 3D scene and reinforces the reflection of the satin materials with a brighter gloss.
  • Adaptative anti-aliasing: Smarter anti-aliasing makes it possible to detect the areas to be treated, optimising calculation and reducing rendering times as a result, with no alteration of the quality of the image.
  • Twinlinker, the virtual visits app: Developed by Abvent R&D, Twinlinker allows you to create and share virtual visits of your projects online instantly and easily. Just export your images, panoramas and videos created in Artlantis 7 to Twinlinker, then link them to create virtual visits to share widely by email (a simple link) or make available on your website.

Webinar: Leveraging The Power of PDF in BIM Workflows

Project delivery is still dominated by the production, exchange, and use of documents to describe the scope and elements of a building’s construction. PDF is now at the heart of that mode of delivery in the larger BIM process. By pairing Vectorworks and Bluebeam, architects and their collaborators are able to leverage the best features of both platforms to provide more complete, clear, and relevant information to project stakeholders, in a format many are already familiar with.

Join industry experts from Vectorworks and Bluebeam as they showcase the latest PDF features of Vectorworks Architect, the new workflow integration with Bluebeam Studio, and collaborative project workflows leveraging Bluebeam Revu.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the project delivery process in a BIM workflow.
  • Discover how PDF plays a role in the larger BIM collaborative process.
  • Describe the advantages of using PDF in the collaborative process and why it is the preferred method of communication with specific project stakeholders.
  • Understand how to utilise PDFs throughout different phases of a project.
