BIM360 Docs

One of the big announcements at Autodesk University 2015 was BIM360 Docs, the Autodesk stab at a common data environment to align with PAS.1192 (Level 2 BIM) requirements. There is free unlimited use on one project, unlimited storage, unlimited users. I sat in on the announcement during AU & have also spoken to a number of contractors who are pretty excited about this technology. It should be noted that it supports all file types!

TBI Holdings at Autodesk University 2015

One of the accounts I work with is TBI Holdings in the Netherlands. I was able to work with the Autodesk innovation leadership last year to get TBI to present at the Innovation Forum during AU2015. If you are interested to listen how TBI's Voorbij pre-cast factory is using technology to change the design to fabrication process make sure you review part 4 of this video. Jos Mulkens and Jeroen Pat from TBI will explain how the concept has become reality & Revit is very much centric to the process.

Hi, its been a long time! No! I haven't disappeared off the planet, just been really busy. I recently attended the London Revit User Group, even after all this time it was great to see the group is still getting regular attendees. The group now has a new site location, head over to this blog for more details if you are looking for a user group where you have a chance to meet with like minded Revit users.
