  • David Haynes, AIA, LEED AP, director of AEC Services and Glynnis Patterson, N.C.A.R.B., director of services — Quantity Takeoffs Made Easy, a 90-minute lab (all levels of expertise) for architects, builders, and other construction professionals who want to investigate the estimating takeoff abilities of Autodesk Quantity Takeoff (QTO) in order to move from a static Excel-based estimating system to a digital based system.
  • David Haynes will also present Better Decisions, Better Buildings, Early Energy Analysis, a 90-minute power user class for those in architecture and building design who are trying to leverage all of the Autodesk tools to create energy efficient buildings by making impactful, informed decisions early in the design process.

Signature Styles and Entourage for Impression will show how to achieve a dynamic and personal look in presentation illustrations.
  • Matt Miyamoto, P.E./Infrastructure Solutions application specialist — Connecting the Dots: Creating AutoCAD Civil 3D Surfaces with LIDAR Data, an intermediate civil infrastructure class for planners, surveyors, developers, design engineers, and others involved in the preliminary design process.  Primary software: AutoCAD Civil 3D.

Because not everyone can travel to Las Vegas to attend AU, professionals from the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industries are invited to attend AU Extension on Dec. 9, 2009 at Ideate offices in San Francisco, CA, San Jose, CA, Portland, OR and Seattle, WA.  The free one-day AU Extension events combine screencasts of AU 2009 class content with face-to-face interaction with local Ideate instructors and other users.

AU Extension is free, but seating is limited so pre-registration required.
