Another quick tip, obvious but a bit too hidden for some;
Question: Why don’t my exported DWGs relate to the shared Revit coordinates?
Answer: If you want your exported DWGs to retain the shared co-ordinates you’ve set up in Revit, ensure that you have the correct settings enabled! The required setting is tucked away under [...]
This problem has not only been around for a long time but has also been fairly well documented, including workarounds. But I’m still surprised how often I hear about people battling with it! It can be triggered by all manner of miniaturised problems but one that seems to occur more frequently is moving an element by a [...]
In this week of big software releases (as usual David’s “What’s New in Revit 2014” post is more than suitably detailed) there was another launch, although slightly smaller and closer to home (for those in Brisbane!). While it may not yet be 100% official, the word is out ;

I attended an interesting meeting last night. I can’t say anything about it just yet, other than something is coming to BIM in Brisbane!

While the wording has changed (Evolver to Project Pinocchio) on Autodesk 360, full access is now available (assuming that you use Building Suite Premium and up).
I have to say that I’m really impressed by Project Pinocchio. The level of customisation is well beyond anything [...]
I was logged in to Autodesk 360 today and the new graphics accompanying the new logo over to the right side of the screen caught my eye. I’d read about this a week or two ago so it wasn’t really the logo but what was under it, that I was surprised by:
There was an interesting post recently over at practical BIM by Antony McPhee. If you are unsure about Level of Development and Level of Detail then you should have a read;
“To avoid confusion we all should always use the acronym LOD for Level of Development, and use some other [...]
Well there’s good news, it was released last week and now, a few days later, an updated download implementing a couple of improvements has been made available. You can get hold of the Keyboard Shortcut Tutor from [...]
