Roof Framing Extensions for Autodesk Revit

Roof Framing Extensions for Autodesk® Revit® 2013 software applications is comprised of two extensions that help automate modeling of roofs in Autodesk Revit, Autodesk Revit Structure and Autodesk Revit Architecture software applications.
The Rafter Framing extension enables the definition and generation of various types of "A" frame roof models. Another extension creates truss roof systems.
Structural elements are created based on a selected Revit native roof object. Generated timber roof structures can be exported to Autodesk® Robot™ Structural Analysis software to perform further structural analysis and design tasks.

Apple launches iPhone 5S and 5C | BIM and Architectural Technology | Scoop.it

Apple has announced two new iPhones, for the first time splitting its flagship product between a premium product and a more affordable version.

 

The flagship iPhone 5S will feature a new chip that offers what Apple claims is desktop computer calibre performance, an improved camera and a fingerprint security scanner.  The iPhone 5C will use a plastic body and many of the internals of the existing iPhone 5. Both will feature the new operating system, iOS7, that Apple hopes will update its software to compete with newer versions from Google and Microsoft.
