A while ago I posted a request calling Add-In writers to create an Add-In or mini program that would clearly display programmed keyboard short-cuts when executing a command in Revit to help new users pick up them up quickly. A month or so ago I renewed this request with Harry Mattison from Boost Your BIM and [...]
Autodesk has released a Hotfix for Revit 2013. It addresses:
Prevents data loss during upgrade of families containing specific material parameters. Improves stability and memory usage within graphics display. Improves vector print output of transparent elements and masking regions. Prevents accidental data loss during cancellation of the in-place family editor.

I’ve always been frustrated by the moments when Revit seems to hang momentarily, normally while executing a single threaded command. Sometimes its only for a second or two, other times it longer, but either way it seems like an eternity when you’re trying to push through your work.

I was hoping to get this post out as my last for 2012, to draw a line under the year and its events, but I missed the boat. There is a lot of information about Autodesk University 2012 out in the ether, mostly in the form of individual posts and articles. Rather than generate yet [...]
If you’ve ever dabbled with the Revit API or wondered about giving it a go, then you should check out Harry’s blog over at Boost Your BIM. He is very experienced, having worked as a developer on the Revit API team, so if you’re after tips straight from the horse’s mouth (so to speak!) [...]
Are you one of the BIM Managers or users that was recently informed that your AutoCAD Revit Suite was being forcibly upgraded to the Autodesk Building Design Suite Premium 2013? Without becoming involved in the politics, I thought that some focus should be placed on the positives.
Why not take the opportunity to train [...]
What approach does your firm take to managing doors? Earlier this year I spoke at RTC on this topic and the following is an extract from the session.
1. Out of the Box Doors
Hopefully most firms stopped using these years ago…

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 [...]

One such example was the ‘Top 11 Tips & Tricks for Revit 2013′ courtesy of the Revit QA group. It was provided in three parts, one available each day, but [...]
