Add-ins, BIM, Dynamo, Revit, Tips & Tricks, Weekly Roundup

Weekly Roundup – 2016.37


The week that was in the world of BIM –  for the week of Sept. 11th – Sept. 17th, 2016.

I’m going to start this week’s Roundup off with some Apple news. Last week Apple let the world know about the iPhone 7, some loved it, some hated it, and lots wondered what happened to the headphone jack. But over at the ConAppGuru blog, Rob was wondering what it would be for the construction industry.

Let’s see what’s new over at DynamoNodes this week.
