When I first posted about Autodesk FormIt in November, before its launch at Autodesk University, there really wasn’t very much information about it. Obviously since its launch FormIt has received more publicity, so I thought it was worth a quick update post.
The FormIt website is no longer just a landing page as it [...]
Here’s some BIM reading that you probably should have done before Christmas, but if you’re anything like me you were far too busy, and then it may have just slipped your mind over the holidays…
Welcome back to the New Year!
First up there is the Fall [...]
I was hoping to get this post out as my last for 2012, to draw a line under the year and its events, but I missed the boat. There is a lot of information about Autodesk University 2012 out in the ether, mostly in the form of individual posts and articles. Rather than generate yet [...]
If you’ve ever dabbled with the Revit API or wondered about giving it a go, then you should check out Harry’s blog over at Boost Your BIM. He is very experienced, having worked as a developer on the Revit API team, so if you’re after tips straight from the horse’s mouth (so to speak!) [...]

As expected at Autodesk University, information was plentiful. Even the various break-out areas, such as The Lounge, were furnished with wealthy snippets of data. One such example was the ‘Top 11 Tips & Tricks for Revit 2013′ courtesy of the Revit QA group. It was provided in three parts, one available each day, but [...]
This is a very old tip, but unless you’re aware of it you can quite easily miss it. I only mention it because it has come to my attention during recent discussions that it isn’t commonly known.
During sketch mode, either in the Project Environment or Family Browser, when [...]
Well it’s been a busy first day at AU2012. It really started yesterday with a few workshops and customer feedback sessions on BIM, various Autodesk 360 offerings, and subscriptions. Then it was off to the Speaker Social and the Public Relations’ Media and Blogger Reception.
