The week that was in the world of BIM and other Techie fun stuff, for the week of Feb. 8th – 14th, 2015.
I will start this weeks Roundup with a post form the IMAGINiT Building Solutions Blog about secret worksets. Spoiler alert this post is about Revit worksets and visualization.
This is the first of I’m sure many Dynamo posts this week. This one comes from Simply Complex with a quick and easy little program to see rooms in 3D.
Have you wanted to know how do you export shared parameters in Revit? Well take a look at this post from IMAGINiT Technologies Support Blog.
Another good post from IMAGINiT Technologies Support Blog on the Revit 2015 R2 update if you have not already made the upgrade (or did and had problems).
Its good to see Steve at Revit OpEd back in the grove after the Month of January off. Here are some of his post for this week.
This next post is part 2 of last weeks post from ConAppGuru about AGC Tech Forum.
Do you like to think? Do you like BIM? Then you should head over to BIM ThinkSpace and check out the latest episode #22 and find out about the Wedge and the S-Curve. Are the the same or are they different when it comes to BIM maturity and performance.
This next post is from CADZulu and is about free things, and we all love free things!
Free CAD Models (2D or 3D content)
New things on the way for Dynamo. If you are brave yo can test them out now in the latest daily build. You can also ready this post from the Dynamo Blog talking about the new stuff, like Icons and Special Characters and more.
If you have been looking for some more info on C4R or CFR (both are Collaboration for Revit), then Autodesk has what you need to some new videos posted. I found these vid’s thanks to a post from the BIM Blog.
More quick tips about Navisworks from What Revit Wants.
This is a post about BIM 360 Field, and updates to the Library feature, found on the 360 View Blog.
Another post about BIM 360 Field this time from Beyond Design about versions.
Have you worked with the BCF format? If so this post id worth the read, from BIM 42.
More on A360 info, this time about Project Types, from the A360 Blog.
Everyday I see new things that Dynamo can do, and having worked on a project with random colour patterns this post from Phil-osophy in BIM would have been a HUGE time saver.
I have worked with the Topo features in Revit, and while they have got better with the addition of the new Site Designer tool in Revit 2015 R2, they are still not the best. This workflow from landscape architecture + BIM can be a big help if you are trying to do a green build.
Have you ever thought about using Revit for cost summation, well so has Synergis.
This next post from the BIM Jedi reminds us to always remember the golden rule….of Collaboration.
A360 now with new Commenting Features, read more on the A360 Blog.
The FM world and the Construction world keep getting closer and closer related, read more in the last post from AECbytes Blog.
If you are looking for a quick fix for Duplicate Mark Warnings in Revit, head over to What Revit Wants for a solution that might work for you.
I have not played with Google Cardboard, but after reading this blog post from the Revit Kid I might just have to make the $25 investment.
I would like to have the penultimate post of this week be this one from In The Fold about the Archi-World Academy Awards. Some really cool stuff here.
I will end this weeks Roundup with a cool new technology from SMART called kapp, the white board gone digital (but you still use a normal dry-erase marker!) I got to play with this a little a few weeks back at our local BIM user group meeting which was held at SMART’s local Campus, its really cool!
