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 [...]
Just a quick reminder that the final BrisBIM Gathering for the year is this Wednesday the 4th of December. While it is at QUT again, it is at a different location. Whilst still in the Science and Engineering Centre (P Block), it is on level 4 (two levels lower than usual) at The [...]
A recent poll on the BrisBIM home page (since changed) confirmed an interesting trend in mobile devices for AEC. The rise in popularity of Android based phones and tablets is clear, now just outnumbering the once dominant Apple devices.
After a hugely successful Inaugural BrisBIM Gathering back in April, the next one has rolled around already! It’s next Wednesday the 19th June:
Arrive from 5:00pm
5:30pm – Intro & Announcements
5:45pm – Introduction to the buildingSMART National BIM Initiative (NBI), Peter Scuderi(buildingSMART)
5:50pm – BIM: Why it should be [...]
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 [...]

Another quick tip, obvious but a bit too hidden for some;
Question: Why don’t my exported DWGs relate to the shared Revit coordinates?
Answer: If you want your exported DWGs to retain the shared co-ordinates you’ve set up in Revit, ensure that you have the correct settings enabled! The required setting is tucked away under [...]
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 [...]
Most firms strip out unnecessary views before sharing models. While it only takes a few minutes, I’m surprised that people still do this manually. There are several shortcuts that can make things easier, especially when you are undertaking this task regularly.
I came across this animation recently and I thought that it was worthy of a post, because if you’ve been in the situation of trying to explain the benefits of the cloud to the uninitiated, or why you want to use the Autodesk’s 360 on an upcoming project, it gets the basics across quickly and easily. And [...]
