BIM, Fun, Weekly Roundup

Weekly Roundup – 2014.19


The week that was in the world of BIM and other Techie fun stuff, for the week of Nov. 23rd – Nov. 29th.

This is kind of interesting, and until I read about it on What Revit Wants I didn’t know it was a thing (of course t is still in Beta so maybe I’m not the only one) but seems there is a Design Academy from Autodesk.

In case you missed it – Design Academy Beta is now Live

Another post from What Revit Wants with a different way to look at LOD, maybe simplify it a little.

A different take on LODs

On last weeks Roundup (Actually 2 weeks ago) I had a post from The Construction App Guru on new Safety Apps, while this week he has posted part 2.

Here is a nice Dynamo Tutorial and data-set for download from BIM Troublemaker. I missed this when it was originally posted, but lucky What Revit Wants had a re-post of it this week to remind me I missed it.

Another good post that I missed a few weeks from HOK BIM Solutions about Underlay Visibility Issues, this time I was reminded by Do U Revit.

I don’t normally get into a lot of ID (Interior Design) Stuff on this blog, but this artificial by The Midnight Lunch is for sure worth a read.

Do Revit and Interior Design go together?
