I read a post last week over at the Revit Kid.com that really got me thinking. It’s not often that you come across new ideas, even though the features may have been around for a while, just forgotten about (by me at least!). The topic was about exporting views as Linked HTML files [...]
I’m busy preparing for the Revit Technology Conference Australasia 2013 which is kicking off on Thursday in Auckland. If you haven’t booked yet it’s not too late…
If you’ve ever wondered how to highlight doors in a schedule if they don’t meet minimum clear opening requirements, or show a warning if they are used in a wall [...]
Wow, how time flies! It’s only just over two weeks away from the start of RTC Australasia.
If you haven’t registered yet, get in quick. If you register by 12pm on the 1st May you have the chance to take home a Dell M6700 17″ Mobile Workstation, as posted by Wesley earlier [...]
Another quick tip, obvious but a bit too hidden for some;
Question: Why don’t my exported DWGs relate to the shared Revit coordinates?

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 [...]
This tip is really obvious but I’m surprised by the number of people that still get caught out by it, so I figured it was worth mentioning.
Scenario; you select an element that you wish to edit in sketch mode, such as a floor slab, but the Edit Boundary command is greyed out?
Reading a recent post about the behaviour of leaders in Revit over at Steve Stafford’s Blog, Revit OpEd, gave me all the motivation required to write this quick post (more of a rant really!). While Steve points out the inconsistency of leader placement between text and keynotes, I’m taking it one step further [...]
Earlybird Registration for the ninth Australasian Revit Technology Conference opened today. This year the conference is being held at The Langham Hotel Auckland, New Zealand, Thursday, 16 May – Saturday, 18 May.
