Weekly Roundup – 2018.35

The BIMsider’s favourite posts from the world of BIM –  for the week of Aug. 25th – Sept. 1st, 2018.


I’m going to start this week’s Roundup off with a post not about BIM directly, but instead, a post that starts off with a totally unremarkable bike ride taken by someone from the BIM community, that everyone from the BIM community is so happy to have back in the saddle again! Colin enjoy the ride! Read more in Colin’s blog, No Edge Lines.
