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 [...]
If you haven’t been hiding under a rock you are sure to have heard that Autodesk is really pushing 3D printing at the moment (refer to this latest initiative). As it happens it’s great timing as I’m speaking on this very topic at next weeks’ RTC Australasia in Melbourne! If [...]
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 [...]
For those of you that play with the Revit API to create your own custom Add-Ins, this new resource may prove very useful. Peter Boyer from the Dynamo team has built a website for the Revit API help files to make them more accessible, with improved search functionality. The website can be found at revitapisearch.com.

Have you ever wondered how to get Revit to do more for you? How about automated geometry creation or optimisation of designs? Or you’ve thought about getting into computational design but you’re a bit scared of programming or don’t know where to start? Then you’ll want to check out Zach Kron’s recent post
This isn’t a new feature but still useful, especially if you have any beginners that you are trying to wean off direct support;
Pressing F1 whilst hovering over a tool not only takes you to the Autodesk Revit WikiHelp website, but directly to the page associated with that particular tool.
There’s been a lot of talk recently about scaling families in Revit. This was perhaps first stirred up last year by Marcello Sgambelluri in a blog post that stated, contrary to popular belief, that families could indeed be scaled. This was followed by various posts from others (including Andy Milburn, [...]
I recently attended the Autodesk AEC Technology Day 2013 (for the Autodesk 2014 release) in Brisbane. The morning consisted mainly of snippets and demos of the products. If you keep up to date with the software scene there wasn’t much new. The emphasis was on the suites, cross software workflows, and a focus on the new [...]
