VDC Webinar Mini-Series: Explore ITM Content Solutions for Autodesk Software

December 21, 2021
To operate with fabrication level precision, it takes precise ITM content that doesn't come with the software out of the box. Contractors need to create their own catalog of ITM components or work with third-party providers to purchase ITM-managed databases.

Utilizing Autodesk’s BIM software for fabrication like CADmep, CAMduct and ESTmep, can provide your company with significant productivity improvements, accuracy and coordination gains. To operate with fabrication level precision, it takes precise ITM content that doesn’t come with the software out of the box.
