I will start by sharing AU2016 by the numbers (at least according to the Autodesk University Website).

Revit Tip – Revisions on Sheet

No matter how much you use Revit or even how long you have been using it there is always something new to learn. The other day while doing a Lunch & Learn session one of the attendees told me something I never knew and it blew my mind.

FormIt Friday Episode 11: Friday 12/18! With Carl Storms

2015-12-17_9-56-32

UPDATE: Video from this FormIt Friday now live – Link at bottom of this post

I am honoured and excited to have been asked to share some of what I talked about at AU 2015 a few weeks ago in Vegas with all the FormIteers on the last FormIt Friday of 2015.

This is going to be a recap session of what I did at AU, as well as a chance to talk about some of the class feed back. As well as getting to spend a little time to focus on some things that there just wasn’t enough time to fit in at AU.

Here are all the details from the FormIt 360 Blog.

FormIt Friday Episode 11: Friday 12/18! With Carl Storms!

Hi Everyone – We’re getting close to closing out 2015 and we want to have one more FormIt Friday to send the year off in style.

We’ve been lucky enough to make the acquaintance of power user Carl Storms. (aka the BIMsider) He led not one, but by popular demand, TWO AU sessions of his cleverly and aptly titled session: “FormIt + Revit = bye bye SketchUp’. Obviously the class resonated with many attendees and he’s agreed to share his knowledge with those who didn’t attend AU.

You can register by clicking the link below

FormIt Friday #11 – Friday Dec. 18th – 10:00 am – 11:00 am MST (12:00 pm – 1:00 pm EST)

If you are interested in seeing a full version of my AU class: “Revit + FormIt = Bye Bye SketchUp” I will be doing it one more time in January at the IMAGINiT Online BIM User Group – January 12, 2016 1:30 – 3 PM Eastern Time

Register at www.imaginit.com/events

Here is the information about what my AU class was all about:

  • Topic: Revit + FormIt = Bye Bye SketchUp!
  • Class Summary: For years there has been a conceptual massing part of Revit that would allow designers to do many of the things they can do in SketchUp inside of Revit directly, but this has never really caught on and designers keep returning to SketchUp for ease of use. Now with the help of FormIt you can take your project from conceptual design all the way to construction documents with these two connected products without having to leave the .RVT file format. You can begin the conceptual design in FormIt and once the design is settled continue the working drawings process inside Revit. There is also the added benefit of being able to work on FormIt on your iPad or on any computer in a web based version, this allows for anytime anywhere design to happen. FormIt also has a feature that allows real time team collaboration on a design. This means the multiple members of a team can be simultaneously working on the same file from different locations, and different FormIt platforms.
  • Class Length: 60 Minutes
  • Class Type: Instructional Demo
  • Instructor: Carl Storms – Senior Applications Expert, IMAGINiT Technologies (yup its me!)

You can download the PDF of the class Handout and PowerPoint by clicking the Dropbox link below.

Mastering Autodesk Revit Architecture 2016…….how the love affair began

6-13-2015 9-56-10 AM

This past week I received my copy of the 2016 version of the “Master Autodesk Revit Architecture” series paperback book in the mail. While this was not something new to me, as I’ve been “collecting” them since the 2009 version, this one is special. Why you ask, well because this copy came direct to me from one of the authors, Eddy Krygiel …….and it was signed!
