Tools for Troubleshooting Unexpected Behavior in Revit

There are many tools in Revit for making project, view, or element level changes to your project file, and many of these tools can also be used to troubleshoot undesired or unexpected behavior in the project.

Analysis of the Graphisoft’s New White Paper on BIM

A couple of weeks ago, Graphisoft, developer of ArchiCAD, released a new white paper called “Get There Faster with ArchiCAD,” which attempts to identify the most important criteria that architects should be looking at when selecting which BIM tools they should work with, as well as clarify the advantages of ArchiCAD over other BIM tools. While Revit is not specifically mentioned, it is obviously the main target of the white paper, being the leading BIM competitor to ArchiCAD. This AECbytes newsletter summarizes the content of the white paper, and analyzes it in the context of the current BIM adoption in the AEC industry.

Revit and PHPP: Getting BIM and Energy Modeling Software to Work Together

Revit and PHPP: Getting BIM and Energy Modeling Software to Work Together | Logiciels d'architecture | Scoop.it

PHPP—the energy modeling software for the Passive House energy-efficiency standard—requires users to input wall areas calculated to the exterior of the thermal boundary. By default Revit does not calculate wall areas this way. Gregory Duncan Architect created a workaround to create a wall schedule that can export meaningful information to PHPP.

What Revit Wants: A 36 minute video on the Revit coordinate system... | Logiciels d'architecture | Scoop.it

The coordinate system or Revit has been rehashed many times on blogs and posts, but has been clear as mud for me, and I suspect a lot of other people. So I took the time to really figure out it, and here's a 30 minute explanation of how Revit's coordinate systems work, interrelate,
how true north works, and how to put multiple copies of a building on a site."

BIM blog.ca: Less is More... more or less

BIM blog.ca: Less is More... more or less | Logiciels d'architecture | Scoop.it

When we ask users how they model and define their Revit assemblies (walls, floors, roofs) most will tell us that their libraries are made up of complete assemblies created from inside to outside.
As we move away from traditional ‘model to get the drawings’ workflows and begin to create models that are shared and leveraged beyond our own needs as architects, we start to realize that our initial approaches might need to be re-examined.

Vectorworks - Cloud Update

Vectorworks - Cloud Update | Logiciels d'architecture | Scoop.it

An architect visits a job site and notices that a detail is incorrect. This must be quickly communicated to the team so a solution can be proposed.

The design is updated in the cloud, and it can be viewed on a colleague’s mobile phone…

Or by others working on desktops back at the office.

In search of “BIM for an architectural design firm” - BIM improves quality

In search of “BIM for an architectural design firm” - BIM improves quality | Logiciels d'architecture | Scoop.it

Azusa Sekkei, the integrated architectural design firm, is celebrating its 66th anniversary this year. With designs including Tokyo International Airport’s domestic line passenger terminal and Saitama Stadium, this firm is responsible for many well-known buildings, and its advanced techniques have established its reputation for excellence. The firm implemented BIM relatively early. (...) We asked Mr. Anno, the head of the design department, and others about their approach to BIM using ArchiCAD as the main software application.

What is your role as an Architect? (How i spent my week in the CME)

What is your role as an Architect? (How i spent my week in the CME)
If youre on my Facebook page or Google+ or Twitter, youve seen these images already. However, this week and last i got to engage one of our Project Teams, and help them kick off their Revit Model. During that time, through Twitter and Social Media, i read two things, and reacted:
1. All architects should be Programmers. (Tweeted, and i disagreed when i read it)
2. Using Revit is frustrating every day. (Facebooked, and i got annoyed)
Then, happenstance had it that i was asked to write a paragraph on how Emerging Technologies change our jobs... And i laughed. It isnt the most original comparison out there, but i liken us to the Record Industry: Are Architecture and Engineering Firms still making Casettes and wanting to sell them for 14 dollars? Certainly a CD or an online album is a better product, so... Isnt it a little justifiable that the road towards a better product is a harder road?
