BIM, Fun, Weekly Roundup

Weekly Roundup – 2014.04



The week that was in the world of BIM and other Techie fun stuff, for the week of Aug. 10th – Aug. 16th.

This is a good wishlist item that Revit OpEd come up with for a right click Purge unused option.

Purge Unused Wish

This is a post by What Revit Wants, about a tool in the Revit Extension pack that allows you to add shared parameters to families automatically. There is also a tip of the hat to Ideate Solutions for writing the Blog post that reminded What Revit Wants about this tool in the first place.

Adding Shared Parameters to Revit Families Automatically

Jeff over at The Revit Kid put up this post about Autodesk FormIt, which was cool because in his post he links to new to me Blog by Jarod Schultz who goes more in-depth with all that is FormIt.

Getting Started with Autodesk FormIt

Here is a good post with from IMAGINiT Building Solutions Blog with a work around for getting your view titles rotated 90 degrees to match your rotated view.

View Titles for Views Rotated on the Sheet

Another post from What Revit Wants, but this time its about Navisworks and BIM 360 Glue. We learn a not so simple work around (or two) to get a Navisworks Viewpoint into BIM 360 Glue.

Transfer Navisworks Viewpoint to BIM 360 Glue

Take a trip with the Revit Jedi to see how close we really are to using VR (Virtual Reality) on today’s construction jobs and sites.

VR and the Construction industry

I’ve been hearing about about Advanced Steel from Autodesk these days around the office, so when I found this video on the Navisworks Facebook page I thought it was worth a look.
