Wow! I can’t believe it’s been two months since I last posted. I’ve been busy working on several new and exciting things recently but I’ll get on to that in a future post…
It seems it is becoming the norm for point clouds to be used during the design process, so I thought that a [...]
A new technology preview has been launched on the Autodesk Labs!
It uses flow analysis technology and is intended to provide hydraulic and mechanical designers with live feedback. From Scott Shepard’s blog, It’s Alive in the Lab:
Project Dalton is our newest technology preview that allows designers and [...]
For those that have been following my series of FormIt posts which started last November, this is the latest instalment. The FormIt Web Beta has finally been released. As hinted at in my last FormIt post, we knew that a web version was on the way and it quietly appeared over a week ago [...]
I don’t know how this one managed to sneak past me but three days ago an update was released for FormIt which included a version for Android!
For those that have been experimenting with Reality Capture with either the recent Autodesk ReCap, or 123D Catch or the much older Project Photofly, you have most likely come across problems dealing with incomplete meshes. For capturing detailed or ornate architectural environments you generally had to resort to a workflow that [...]
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 [...]
I recently read a post on Temporary Dimensions over at the Revit Geeks Blog (BD Mackey Consulting). Brian Mackey goes through some tips on getting more from your temporary dimensions. I thought it was worth mentioning that Temporary Dimensions can be resized to make them easier to use.

Just a quick update to yesterday’s post.
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
