AU218-3 Creating a Good Impression
Your design documents provide the fuel for creating great-looking presentation drawings with Autodesk Impression. Getting superb output in the Impression rendering pipeline starts with understanding the options available to get the best input into the system. In this class, Ron demonstrates the best ways to work with Impression andAutodesk design applications. He explores topics such as document preparation, output options, and best practices for streamlining the flow from design to illustration. He also covers the utilities within Impression, such as Style Mapping, Block Substitution, and CAD Refresh that permit automated, iterative rendering of CAD works in progress.

AU318-2 Signature Styles and Entourage for Autodesk Impression
The illustrations you use to communicate your ideas to your client will carry the signature of your firm in every brush and pencil stroke. In this class, Ron shows you how to achieve a dynamic and personal look to your presentation illustrations. The creation of unique Autodesk Impression appearance styles and how to create libraries of these signature styles is covered. Entourage elements such as furniture, trees, cars, and people add life to your illustrations. Methods for bringing your current image-based entourage libraries into Impression blocks, and techniques for creating a signature look for custom Impression blocks and block libraries are also reviewed.
