AutoCAD® Structural Detailing 2011 - What's New Video Tutorials

I found these  AutoCAD® Structural Detailing 2011 Video Tutorials up on YouTube.

These videos are great, they show you what's inside AutoCAD® Structural Detailing 2011 that comes with Revit. Hopefully one day these two programs will become one! (Revit)

AutoCAD® Structural Detailing 2011 ~  Surface Distribution of Reinforcement Bars - 12 April 2010.
Surface reinforcement representation of concrete reinforcement bars where all of the bars are different sizes often does not conform to the realities of the construction process. AutoCAD Structural Detailing has been enhanced to allow for the surface distribution of reinforcement bars on inclined edges which can be defined into group segments, allowing them to be grouped by similar length. This method of grouping of the reinforcement bars allows for fewer bar length types.

AutoCAD® Structural Detailing 2011 ~ Steel Connections Enhancements - 12 April 2010.
The steel connections feature has been enhanced to provide additional parameters which can help users define the size of undercuts to the upper/lower plane of the adjoining element in beam-to-beam connections. For beam-to-beam connections with rib plates, it is now possible to modify the location of the connecting rib on the right or left side of the adjoining element.

AutoCAD Structural Detailing 2011- Reinforcement Bar Definition Enhancements - 12 April 2010.Enhancements have been made to the reinforcement bar definition feature such as automatic recognition of a bar shape and the ability to assign the correct shape code to it. This option is available for all types of reinforcement definitions such as manual bar definition, surface reinforcement, reinforcement defined by using macros, and for drawings imported from Autodesk Revit Structure and Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis.

AutoCAD® Structural Detailing 2011 ~ Table Rotation ~ 12 April 2010.
AutoCAD Structural Detailing now takes advantage of the AutoCAD Rotate command which allows users to change the orientation of tables created with AutoCAD Structural Detailing features.

AutoCAD® Structural Detailing 2011 ~ Bidirectional Link with Autodesk Revit Structure - 12 April 2010.
The exchange of a steel structural model with Autodesk Revit Structure has been extended by adding curved elements and groups. Also, new mapping capabilities have been added to help identify the element cross-sections between the applications. To have this capability, you need to install Revit Extensions for Autodesk Revit Structure

AutoCAD Structural Detailing 2011 ~ Elements with no Machining  - 12 April 2010.
No description for this Video!

AutoCAD® Structural Detailing 2011 ~ Element Definition in UCS - 12 April 2010.
Structural elements can now be defined in the local User Coordinate System (UCS) allowing for buildings to be modeled quickly and easily in a given coordinate system.

AutoCAD® Structural Detailing 2011 ~ Copying/Moving Openings - 12 April 2010.
Copying and moving selected elements in the Formwork Drawings part has been enhanced to allow for copying and moving openings in walls and slabs from one level to another, independently from the structural element itself

AutoCAD® Structural Detailing 2011 ~ Improved Construction Documentation - 12 April 2010.

During the definition of simple dimensions, users can now select the types of elements to be considered, regardless of the general settings. Also simple and group dimensions now allow you to define a minimum dimension value that will be omitted during dimensioning. Additionally, automatic level descriptions for drawings, such as plan views of the stories and foundations, can now be created.

AutoCAD® Structural Detailing 2011 ~ Enhanced Automatic Drawing Creation - 12 April 2010.
The method of arranging, grouping, and justifying the elements in automatically generated drawings has been enhanced to allow for higher quality drawings to be produced with better overall organization. Additionally, the functionality of automatic drawing generation has been extended to allow table generation that lists elements that are not subject to machining as well as elements that have vertical and flat cuts at their ends.
