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

Weekly Roundup – 2017.17

The week that was in the world of BIM –  for the week of Apr. 23rd – Apr. 29th, 2017.


I’m going to start this week’s Roundup off with a post from the FormIt Blog on all the new things in their latest Release.

Spring 2017 Release

There were no blogs this week from the world of RTC/BILT, but that may be because registration for BILT  NA (BILT Neh – Canada joke) opened this week.

While there was no official RTC News Blog this week, I think this post from Luke of What Revit Wants fills the void very well!
