Autodesk has delivered a new-features module exclusively for Autodesk® Architectural Desktop 2007 software customers participating in the Autodesk® Subscription program.
“Subscription Module: Spaces and Drawing Compare” provides:
The Spaces feature, which is used to track the area and other data associated with rooms or other spaces in the building design. With the enhancements in this subscription module, Spaces can now update automatically if the bounding elements are changed, saving time while making documentation more accurate. And Spaces definitions can now also include offsets from bounding elements based on pre-set or user-defined rules, enabling area calculations based on various industry standards, including BOMA, DIN, or SIS.
The Drawing Compare feature, which enhances collaboration by using color-coded displays to show items on a drawing that have been changed, added, or deleted by other members of the design team. Changes to items such as styles, fire ratings, or other non-graphical properties are also tracked. Combined with redlining features, such as revision clouds, the Spaces and Drawing Compare features help make communication across the design team clearer than ever.
This module can be downloaded by logging into the Subscription Center and going to “Building Solutions: Product Modules & Add-Ons” near the bottom of the Product Information & Downloads section and clicking where indicated.
