The week that was in the world of BIM and other Techie fun stuff, for the week of May 31st – June 6th, 2015.
I’m going to start this weeks Roundup off with a post about the kids (University students) and how they use Dynamo in a post from The Dark Arts of Revit.
You know you have hit the big time as an idea or philosophy when you get a “For Dummies” book about you. Congratulation BIM you have officially made it! (TaskABM)
I don’t normally talk (or post) a lot about Inventor on this blog, but I thought this was cool news (also I’m a CNC wannabe geek) that I found on the Hagerman and Company Blog.
What little piece of technology can’t you live without? (I don’t think I can be only one for me) While you are thinking about it check out this post on ArchSmarter and see what Michael can’t live without……and it’s not his phone.
Well the numbers are in (well some of them) after the Call for Proposals for AU 2015 closed last week, and looks like even more submitted than last year with over 2000 proposals for less than 700 AU classes. Learn more in thsi post from the AU Blog.
Here is everything you needed to know from the world of RTC as posted on the RTC News blog.
Certifiable (this is really cool you can now get Revit certification at RTC NA 2015)
Have you used the Schedule Key in Revit yet, it can be a big help in MEP, learn more in the IMAGINiT Building Solutions Blog.
Here is another interesting blog from IMAGINiT Building Solutions Blog, this time from the FM side of the tracks.
Here is a review of an updated Revit Add-in (RVT Exporter Pro) from What Revit Wants.
Here is a Dynamo post (with some help from Revit and Excel) about creating sheets from Autodesk Revit Structure.
Here is a quick tip post from the A360 Blog about sectioning in the new A360 Viewer.
If you aren’t going to be in Toronto next week (June 9th), but will be in Vancouver, then you should check out this even (The BIM Jedi).
Here is a review post from Revit OpEd about the steps to upgrade a C4R project from 2015 – 2016.
Now for some more Dynamo Content, this time about bridges from Revit beyond Design.
This is not BIM related, but does fall under “techie stuff” and I am a Dropbox fan boy so I had to share this from the Dropbox Blog about this cool new feature.
More non-BIM techie stuff, Microsoft has announced the date that Windows 10 will be available for upgrade (free upgrade if you have Windows 7 or 8), find out more in this post by Gizmag. Spoiler the date is July 29th.
Here is a back to the basics approach to the old “Tips and Tricks” idea for Reivt from AUGI Library.
I have not done any 3D printing but the idea has always intrigued me, if it intrigues you too check out this post from GrabCAD Blog.
This next post is about “ramps” in Revit (if you have used the tool you know why I put ramps in quotations) ans how the tool is archaic and not very good (totally on board with that assessment) read more to find out why over at landarchBIM Blog.
Some more interesting things that you can do with Dynamo from What Revit Wants.
Having issues with exporting liked files in Revit to Glue using the NWC option, then check this post out from IMAGINiT Building Solutions Blog.
BIM 360 Glue: Issue exporting NWCs from BIM 360 Revit Add-in (I also re-posted this on the BIMsider blog here)
This is an awesome Tweet (and Idea) for using Dynamo, was tweeted by Aaron Perry.
Here is another great post from the RevitCat about Revit Key Schedules.
This next post by Revit Swat is a very interesting comparison between 3 ways to make the same complicated facade in Revit.
Here is a YouTube video from the Autodesk Building Solutions Channel that explains how to do cut and fill volumes within Revit.
If you are thinking about using C4R or have just started then this post by the BIM Jedi will be a good reference and help as you can learn from real world experience on live projects.

I will end this weeks Roundup with a cool YouTube video that I found thanks to Phil Read’s Twitter feed that shows the 11 year construction of One World Trade Center in just over 2 minutes.
