How time flies! The Revit Technology Conference is now only a few days away! This is one of my favourite conferences of the year.
As it’s almost in my backyard there’s no excuses for me not attending. And the fact that I’m speaking at two of the sessions makes it all the more certain!
I’m joining [...]
This one has been on my radar for a few weeks but I just haven’t got around to posting about it. Penn State University, well known in BIM circles for producing comprehensive documentation, have updated their BIM Planning Guide for Facility Owners.

While Steve points out the inconsistency of leader placement between text and keynotes, I’m taking it one step further [...]
At Peddle Thorp we have a couple of legacy tags that we use as symbols for spot elevations. The one at the top (without the filled corner) is to indicate the level of an area, and the one to the right (with the filled corner) is to indicate the level at a given point. All good [...]
