The good news is that the AUGIWorld October 2012 Issue is out and its a great distraction from the creepy billboard I have to drive by everyday on the way to work.
In this issue David Butts, (yes, the David Butts) pens an awesome article on Making Sense out of Data Interoperability in the BIM World. Long name, great article. By the way, sign up for David's classes at AU this year. He is not only a smarty-pants, but also a dynamic speaker that can help you improve your day to day life and have fun at the same time.
Melinda Heavrin also shows you "Efficient Customization with the CUI" in AutoCAD Architecture.
And Elisha Sage dives deep into some complicated features of part building in AutoCAD MEP. The result is easier generation of data in drawings, among other benefits.
