It is that time of year again, where you see lots of posts on LinkedIn and Twitter with people sharing the class, or classes they have submitted for Autodesk University 2021. That’s right its voting time again, your chance to help shape that #AU2021 will look like! This year the voting ends on May 12th, only 12 days after the submissions closed, so better be quick to let your voice be heard. You can review all of the submitted session for this year Virtual AU HERE.Continue reading “Virtual AU 2021 – Submissions Closed, Voting Open!”
This year I’m doing a technical demo session for #AU2020, of course, with it being 2020 it’s not going to be a normal AU session!Continue reading “AU 2020 – Magical Mystery Tour”
It is that time of year again, seeing old friends that you haven’t seen since last year, bright lights, lots of music, even more walking…yes Autodesk University is in the air!

This year AU is going virtual, starting Nov. 17th and going until Nov. 20th and it is FREE for everyone! You can still register HERE.Continue reading “AU 2020 – Going Virtual”
This week I was honored to be invited to join the Autodesk Expert Elite Program.
The program itself is really about the AECO community and those within it helping others but sharing knowledge and experience.
The Expert Elite program recognizes customers around the world who contribute to the Autodesk Community by sharing their product knowledge, best practices and expertise. By acting as leaders and being actively involved, Expert Elites help our customer community to thrive.From the Autodesk Expert Elite Page
This is when it really hit me the amazing group of people from the AECO and BIM world I had just joined as part of this program. There was “welcome to the team” messages and thumbs-ups from likes of Kimberly Fuhrman, Deepak Maini, Jarod Schultz, Rina Sahay, John Pierson, Daniel Stine, Jonathan Hand, Jason Boehning, Purvi Irwin and Marcello Sgambelluri to name a few. So I really hope I can do my part to help the community in just a small way to be worthy of this group!
If you know someone out there that you think should be part of the Autodesk Expert Elite program you can nominate them using the link below:

Dynamo and its Grasshopper equivalent using Rhino.Inside®.Revit
Presented by Marcello Sgambelluri of John A. Martin & Associates (virtual session)
There is a new technology that is emerging in the AECO+ industry. It is called Rhino Inside Revit and it allows Revit to access all of Rhino’s powerful functionally including Grasshopper.
So, we decided to avoid turning this session into another “intro to Rhino.Inside.Revit”. Instead, let’s look at Grasshopper for Revit in a different light. This session will show all of you Dynamo for Revit users how to make equivalent functions in Grasshopper including creating Revit Beams, Revit Walls and even Moose…
Let’s find out what Grasshopper for Revit is really made of!
So if you want to have a fun time please join us and don’t forget to bring all your questions and concerns up to the presenter to keep the session lively.

The Future of Work
Designing Resiliency and Building Safety Post-COVID
Predicting how our world will be impacted due to COVID-19 is difficult. Obviously, this crisis has already affected the building industry from a productivity perspective and will have a permanent effect on how we consider safety for our workers. As we consider these impacts we should expect an additional level of attention in design to be paid to Infectious Disease Control beyond Hospital environments. We should, therefore, expect that architectural design and specifications, specifically the physical gateways that control our built environment, will accommodate the technology systems and processes necessary to keep Society safe. What role will infectious disease specialists play in the design process? How will the building’s IOT strategy accommodate and collect the data required to help Society perform epidemiological contact tracing? What will be the new requirements for design? How will this impact existing buildings and future projects? What are the long term supply chain implications? We are gathering the top minds in Canada to start the discussion around this subject. Please join us!

YourDesk University is an initiative intended to help the AEC Tech community connect and share knowledge remotely during these challenging times. Since it started on April 7th there have been 15 greats sessions that are now available for all to view on YouTube.
This week, it’s my turn to take the virtual stage and share my session on Dynamo Packages: “Dynamo Packages That Will Rock Your World”.
This is a Special Edition of the Weekly Roundup, focused solely on What’s New with Revit 2021
It’s that time of year again, the latest version of Revit has launched: Revit 2021. It has been a few weeks since the April 8th, 2020 launch date and there have been lots of posts about what’s new. This will be your one-stop location for all the posts, podcasts and videos about the good, bad and ugly for Revit 2021 from all your favourite BIM friends!
