I recently received notification that my proposal for a class on Revit visualisation was accepted for Autodesk University 2012. It’s a follow up to my lecture last year, AB5005P Life After Revit, which was a quick round up of what you can do with a Revit model in other (primarily) Building Design Suite applications. This years [...]
This is interesting, as it indicates that Vasari will most likely remain it’s own product and not be rolled into Revit in [...]
There are some pretty cool technology previews about at the moment, courtesy of Autodesk Labs.
Maximo® Integration has just been added and I’m really excited about this one! It is intended to extend the value of BIM through to the operations phase. The data can be published directly into Maximo but more [...]
After reading a post on Luke’s blog today over at What Revit Wants, I got thinking that it would be a great idea to have something similar for Revit. An Add-In or mini program that would clearly display your programmed keyboard short-cuts when executing a command in Revit. This would really help users pick them up [...]
I’m aware of the wish list over at AUGI and we also used to be able to provide feedback through the Revit Customer Council (though that seems to have disappeared?) and then there is the beta programs forum, and various other forum wish lists, but its not that kind of [...]
The first update for Revit 2013 is now available. Remember to install the correct update for your product; for the seperate flavours (e.g. Architecture) go to the product’s specific support page:
Or if you use Revit as part of a suite, go to the Design & Creation [...]
During a recent discussion after my RTC (Australasia) class, I was asked how I dealt with the door opening to/from parameter. What was the best way to model doors with regard to opening direction and how do you ensure that your get the correct results on the door schedule?
During the discussion that followed, the [...]
I came across this animation recently and I thought that it was worthy of a post, because if you’ve been in the situation of trying to explain the benefits of the cloud to the uninitiated, or why you want to use the Autodesk’s 360 on an upcoming project, it gets the basics across quickly and easily. And [...]
I’ve come to the realisation that Add-Ins are following in the way of Apps – not so long ago there were none, a few short years later and there are millions!
Several years ago I made an effort to establish which Add-Ins were available for Revit and I kept track of the new arrivals with [...]
So, why another Revit blog, I hear you ask? Well it was inevitable, if it wasn’t me it would’ve been someone else! So after putting it off for more than a year I thought I’d better get on with it.
I don’t plan on posting several times a day, or linking to the great content [...]
