Autodesk Expert Elite

This week I was honored to be invited to join the Autodesk Expert Elite Program.

The program itself is really about the AECO community and those within it helping others but sharing knowledge and experience.

The Expert Elite program recognizes customers around the world who contribute to the Autodesk Community by sharing their product knowledge, best practices and expertise. By acting as leaders and being actively involved, Expert Elites help our customer community to thrive.

From the Autodesk Expert Elite Page

Yesterday BIM Track congratulated me on my achievement and shared the news with the industry.

This is when it really hit me the amazing group of people from the AECO and BIM world I had just joined as part of this program. There was “welcome to the team” messages and thumbs-ups from likes of Kimberly Fuhrman, Deepak Maini, Jarod Schultz, Rina Sahay, John Pierson, Daniel Stine, Jonathan Hand, Jason Boehning, Purvi Irwin and Marcello Sgambelluri to name a few. So I really hope I can do my part to help the community in just a small way to be worthy of this group!

DoC Event #009 – Dynamo and its Grasshopper equivalent using Rhino.Inside®.Revit

This is a joint event with DoE

Date: Wednesday, June 24th, 2020

Time: 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm MDT

Location: Online via Zoom

This will be the Third DoC event of the 2019 – 2020 season. Event #009 will feature a remote presentation about Dynamo, Grasshopper & R.I.R. from Marcello Sgambelluri of John A. Martin & Associates

Dynamo and its Grasshopper equivalent using Rhino.Inside®.Revit

Presented by Marcello Sgambelluri of John A. Martin & Associates (virtual session)

There is a new technology that is emerging in the AECO+ industry. It is called Rhino Inside Revit and it allows Revit to access all of Rhino’s powerful functionally including Grasshopper.

So, we decided to avoid turning this session into another “intro to Rhino.Inside.Revit”. Instead, let’s look at Grasshopper for Revit in a different light. This session will show all of you Dynamo for Revit users how to make equivalent functions in Grasshopper including creating Revit Beams, Revit Walls and even Moose…

Let’s find out what Grasshopper for Revit is really made of!

So if you want to have a fun time please join us and don’t forget to bring all your questions and concerns up to the presenter to keep the session lively.

#CANBIMCGY20 – Calgary Virtual Session 2020 – June 16th

If you have not signed up yet for the CanBIM Calgary Virtual Session next week, what are you waiting for!

This event is Tuesday, June 16th, 2020, 8:45 am – 4:45 pm EDT

The Future of Work
Designing Resiliency and Building Safety Post-COVID

Predicting how our world will be impacted due to COVID-19 is difficult. Obviously, this crisis has already affected the building industry from a productivity perspective and will have a permanent effect on how we consider safety for our workers. As we consider these impacts we should expect an additional level of attention in design to be paid to Infectious Disease Control beyond Hospital environments. We should, therefore, expect that architectural design and specifications, specifically the physical gateways that control our built environment, will accommodate the technology systems and processes necessary to keep Society safe. What role will infectious disease specialists play in the design process? How will the building’s IOT strategy accommodate and collect the data required to help Society perform epidemiological contact tracing? What will be the new requirements for design?  How will this impact existing buildings and future projects? What are the long term supply chain implications? We are gathering the top minds in Canada to start the discussion around this subject. Please join us!
