Automation using software

We study your workflows in details and analyze them by the team of experts for automating the tasks, that you carry out on day-to-day basis, by using the softwares such as Microsoft Office applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook) OR Autodesk products (AutoCAD, Civil 3D, and Revit) OR Rhino 3D (using the Grasshopper).

Automation is the key parameter for improving productivity

Automating your everyday tasks and customizing them to suit your workflow is the key to improving your productivity many folds. Automation can be done using the Microsoft Office applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook) which can automated using VBA programming, Autodesk products (AutoCAD, Civil 3D, Revir, Fusion 360) which can be automated using VBA programming and Dynamo programming, Rhino is a powerful 3D NURBS modeling software which can be automated using built-in tool known as Grasshopper, ArchiCAD (Graphisoft), and Vectorworks - Architect and Landmark.

  • VBA - Visual Basic for Applications which is built-in programming tool in all the Office applications as well as Autodesk AutoCAD

  • Dynamo - A powerful visual programming tool in Autodesk Civil 3D and Revit application

  • Grasshopper - A very powerful visual programming tool in Rhino 3D

Adding these software tools for automation to your arsenal makes you to effectively tackle complex construction projects in respect of tendering, engineering, construction, and operations.

Automation using Microsoft Office applications

Automation of Microsoft applications is carried out by using VBA programming language which is installed by default with the Office applications. You can start automating tasks in any Microsoft Office application and seamlessly proceed to automate other Microsoft applications, without leaving the application where you started. This ability enables you to simultaneously automate multiple office tasks. For example, suppose you are creating a report in Microsoft Word, you can automate Word to generate the report using appropriate format, insert a table in your report from Excel, and finally mail that report to your client using Microsoft Outlook, all in action. This is the power of automation.

Microsoft has the right set of tools which allows you automate office tasks. It provides businesses with enhance capabilities to ensure that their team members remain on the same page and get the job completed on time, by setting the reminders and scheduling conferences, to accessing the information from the cloud and collaborating on the projects and assignments. Microsoft has an encyclopedic suit of software that automate office tasks and ensure the smooth development of projects from conceptualization to completion.

Office automation is a teamwork requiring dedicated of Information Technology (IT) professionals. At Infra-Gizmo, we deploy such teams to your company, who will identify tasks and provide the automation solution.

Automation of office tasks is big gamechanger in the long-term.

Automation using Autodesk products

Autodesk products used in construction industry are highly automatable using various tools such as VBA programming, Dynamo programming, and Python scripting. This automation enables you to perform design automation of repetitive design and data management tasks. You can achieve the design automation by two ways:

  • Drawing automation

  • 2D CAD automation

  • 3D CAD automation

Simulations and 3D visualizations are only the beginning of virtual environments and the game-changing impact of CAD software. It is the engine that makes it all possible. However, good-to-great means adapting the genius of CAD specifically to your business, your customers, and to every phase of your design project.

Drawings in 2D and 3D is the universal language used by engineers, architects, and contractors (AEC) for communicating the design intent, constructing the projects, and record as-built conditions. Correct drawings makes it possible to communicate effectively.

3D modeling is the process of using software to create a mathematical representation of a 3-directional object or shape. The created object is called a 3D model and these 3-dimensional models using AutoCAD, Civil 3D, Revit, 3ds Max, and Fusion360 are widely used in the construction industry

Automation is not limited to drafting, you can use it for generating the complete design and based on the design parameter, you create a drawing.

Automation using Autodesk Revit and Civil 3D

Automation in Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Civil 3D is done using Dynamo, a visual programming language. It is a add-in tool installed by default with the respective programs. It is a very powerful utility for automating tasks and designs in Revit and Civil 3D, which would been impossible to achieve manually.

Most of the engineer and architects use Dynamo programming as an aid to the complex BIM workflows. Zaha Hadid architects are known for their signature fluid architecture and computational design. The transformation of these projects into Revit BIM models represents a special challenge and requires custom workflows. This practical examples that deal with the efficient cross-application transfer of geometry and metadata using custom software, visual scripting, and the Cloud.
