Don’t Skip the SKP Mats

Don’t Skip the SKP Mats | Logiciels d'architecture | Scoop.it

Another simple, quick yet useful tip today! A while back we mentioned Sketchup in our Topo tip, today I’m going to show you how to assign a material to that topo (or any object really) that you bring in to Revit from Sketchup.

Sketchup to Revit with Materials

Sketchup to Revit with Materials | Logiciels d'architecture | Scoop.it

There have been many posts about how you can control Sketchup materials in Revit using Object Styles. However, this relies on the existence of different layers for each distinct material in the original file. If you have an SKP file and would like to create the layers you need (without using Sketchup itself), you can use this method:

'Save a Copy As' is my new favorite command

'Save a Copy As' is my new favorite command | Logiciels d'architecture | Scoop.it

Every time I talk to Mitchel Stangl, I learn something new. Mitchel’s a mechanical engineer who uses SketchUp Pro to build massively intricate models of processing and manufacturing facilities. On his last visit to SketchUp HQ, Mitchel helped me improve my workflow by telling me about the File > Save A Copy As… command (which we apparently added at his suggestion).

Un panorama de la CAO aujourd’hui

Les logiciels de DAO/CAO font partie du paysage quotidien de l’industrie. Après avoir remplacé d’abord la table à dessin dans les bureaux d’étude, ils concernent maintenant tous les métiers : le dessinateur de plans, le concepteur de voiture ou textile, de circuits électroniques ou l’architecte…

Shades of Grey: IMAGE MANIPULATION

Shades of Grey: IMAGE MANIPULATION | Logiciels d'architecture | Scoop.it

Mental Ray renders are great, but sometimes you want something softer, more impressionistic. There are many ways of achieving this, but ideally I want to stay as close to the Revit workflow as I can. So I aim to limit any image manipulation outside of Revit to what I can achieve in 10-15 minutes.

Beyond BIM – Building With Perfect Information

In this Viewpoint article, Ray Crotty, who is the founder of the UK-based C3 Systems and the author of the recent book “The Impact of Building Information Modelling,” contrasts drawings with models, asserting that with drawings, no matter how detailed you get, you can only say approximately what you mean or intend, whereas there is no such ambiguity in models. He also questions what would happen if the information used in the AEC industry were fully trustworthy – needing no checking – and were readily computable, as the BIM vision promises, and if the operation of the construction industry were based on the use of effectively perfect information.

VectorWorks - Video of The 1968 Exhibit | Logiciels d'architecture | Scoop.it

Vectorworks user William Maple was asked to render views of The 1968 Exhibit so that various members of the team and donors could have a better sense of the overall project. “My task was to simplify the framework design of the exhibition (developed by John Low) and fabrication drawings so that they could be illustrated and walk-through animations could be produced,” explains Maple.

An Interview with Michael Gibson, MoI CEO and Founder

An Interview with Michael Gibson, MoI CEO and Founder | Logiciels d'architecture | Scoop.it

Despite the grand announcements, the CAD world evolves at a slow pace with few real advancements each year. This is why when I looked into MoI (Moment of Inspiration) the first time, I wasn't really expecting much. After a short while I noticed that the system created by Michael Gibson was not just another modeling system. With surprise I saw some new ideas and a strong effort to rethink the modeling problem with a fresh approach. In particular I appreciate a system that is easy to use and that manages to hide the complexity of the underlying mathematical model. I thought it would be interesting to get a first hand look into Michael's innovative ideas and vision. Here is the interview.

The SketchUp Import plug-in adds two ways to get SKP files into your AutoCAD drawings. Use the IMPORTSKP command to convert a SketchUp file, stored in a local or shared folder, and insert the model into the current drawing. The GETMODEL command allows you to browse or search the Google 3D Warehouse and download SketchUp models directly into your drawing.

3D ou 2D dans le projet, Aller au plus simple

Je lance le sujet car je cherche des réponses dans ce sens.

Revit est un outil 3D bien à l'opposé de la philosophie autocadienne. Mon intérêt serais d'utiliser Revit de l'esquisse jusqu'au DCE pour permettre une continuité du projet.
Hors ce n'est pas la manière dont l'utilisons dans ma boite puisqu'au stade DCE le projet est passé sur autocad. En effet, autocad est bien souple pour documenter le projet, phase qui consiste souvent à de l'annotation et du détail technique.

p3d.in : un youtube de la 3D sans plugin

Vous avez envie de montrer vos modèles 3D dans un sujet de forum ou sur votre site, mais ne maîtrisez pas le WebGL et n'avez pas envie de reposer sur un plugin propriétaire ? P3d.in est un nouveau service qui devrait répondre à votre besoin.
Le principe est simple : mettez en ligne votre modèle 3D au format .obj, et vous obtenez une page affichant le modèle directement dans le navigateur web en WebGL, avec quelques options basiques (mode wireframe, par exemple). Un code html permet d'insérer le tout dans une page web, comme avec les deux exemples ci-dessous.
