Project Snap is Design Center’s stronger brother…

Today, I wanted to Blog about something different, something new, and something exciting! So, I decided to talk about one of the Autodesk lab projects, “Project Snap”. Basically, it is the next super-generation of the Design Center. Project Snap makes all of your content searchable similar to a Google search engine and it allows Autodesk users to connect to their design content (DWG, RVT, IAM), regardless of where the data resides and instantly locates design content without leaving AutoCAD. Project Snap creates an index of your data based on where you want it to look (local or network folders, Autodesk Seek, Autodesk Buzzsaw, Autodesk Vault). This index of design metadata looks at file properties, and even objects in files, and objects like blocks, text, attributes, fields, dimensions, leaders, Hyperlinks… (The list goes on and on.) Another great thing about this is it is easy to use inside a Find Content Palette similar to the other pallets right inside AutoCAD.
