Local Adobe Forums focused on AEC – Where have you been?

Hey all, it’s me again, you know it’s funny, when I started at Adobe, we had just started building a team to support the AEC industry, we now have a full marketing team, product and project managers, sales and SE’s, many AEC flavored products (Acrobat 8 Professional, Acrobat 3D, Acrobat Connect, LiveCycle Policy Server, LiveCycle Workflow…), and then there’s little ol’ me.  I have the best job of all.  Acrobat for AEC-Read on for more!

Hey all, it’s me again, you know it’s funny, when I started at Adobe, we had just started building a team to support the AEC industry, we now have a full marketing team, product and project managers, sales and SE’s, many AEC flavored products (Acrobat 8 Professional, Acrobat 3D, Acrobat Connect, LiveCycle Policy Server, LiveCycle Workflow…), and then there’s little ol’ me.  I have the best job of all.  I get to go out and see all of you!  Well, let’s say I try to see all of you.  I do most of the major trade shows, write Blogs, starting to do some POD Casts and Video POD Casts, the list goes on.  But it’s a blast to do these things and hear that it may have helped some of you.

 

So here is how we can hook up, every month or so I go to a city, rent out a hotel meeting room, drag my SE Jonathan Bowman with me, and we do a 4 hour long session on how to use Acrobat Professional, Acrobat 3d, Acrobat Connect, and some of our other products in the AEC/EPC industry.  The best thing about it, other than the wealth of knowledge you will take with you, is it is FREE!!  When was the last time you got something so cool for free? 

 

So, I can hear you now, well Tim, what do you cover in this Forum? Here is a high level list:

 

  • Combine CAD drawings, Word documents, project schedules, forms, and rich media content into a single Adobe PDF document.
  • Streamline collaborative e-mail based reviews — and track feedback by reviewer — through network folders, WebDAV, or SharePoint.
  • Import comments from PDF files directly into Autodesk AutoCAD drawings, and reference comments from PDF documents into Bentley MicroStation XM files.
  • Design and create dynamic forms using Adobe LiveCycle Designer software, included with Acrobat 8 Professional.
  • Collaborate in online meetings using Acrobat Connect.
  • Show how Acrobat 3D can be used to take your 3D designs to the next level

 

It’s a full morning that starts at 8:00 with a full breakfast, then, we do a deep dive into the 5 C’s (Create, Combine, Collect, Collaborate, and Control) of how Knowledge Workers (that’s all of us) and their documents are supported within these workflows.  It’s an interactive, fun morning that will have you screaming “Hey, I didn’t know Acrobat could do that!!”

Take care and I’ll see you the next post!
