Found this and had to share… Some of our favorite tips and tricks come from users themselves. RevitCity.com member, dianoink, shared a useful RPC Tree Guide that was picked up and shared by several Revit and BIM blogs including, The Revit Kid and What Revit Wants. We think the Revit RPC Tree Guide is pretty cool too!
The firm’s BIM leaders continue to stand out in the profession as they’ll speak at different national conferences in the weeks ahead. Liz Chodosh is delivering a presentation entitled, “Rethinking Deliverables,” at COFES 2013 this week. The presentation will look at why teams tend to always start every AEC project as if it is the [...]
I wanted to share this article about Jennifer Barrett Kady who works in our Boston office and how she’ll be returning to co-teach Arch 287 Intro to Computer Applications in Design and Arch 488 Computer Applications for Professional Practice at Roger Williams University’s School of Architecture, Art & Historic Preservation (SAAHP). Kady is a Roger [...]
Going through an old hard drive today looking for some files I stumbled upon my very first Revit Rendering. This was my first Revit project done in Revit 5.0 in the summer of 2002. I learned Revit over the weekend at home locking myself in my room for two days living off pizza and Chinese [...]
A couple of months ago, I had the opportunity of attending the BIMForum held in San Antonio, TX with Liz Chodosh. For those not familiar with the BIMForum, it is a gathering of many of the leaders of the BIM movement in the Construction Industry… a meeting of the minds. It is a place to present the [...]
Cannon Design’s recent BIM writing competition, launched affectionately on Valentine’s Day on the topic of “I (heart) BIM,” generated a wealth of creative submissions (both in and out of house). The three eligible entries by our semi-finalists, Lauren Coles (LA), Carl Karlen (STL), and Deborah MacPherson (DC), have been out for review by a panel [...]
Cannon Design hosted a creative writing competition for the love of BIM over the course of February and March. Everyone inside and outside of Cannon Design was invited to submit a short piece extolling their love and affection for building information modeling (BIM). We posted several of the submissions from external folks during the contest. [...]
In late 2011, Cannon Design issued a series of process documents related to the effective employment of Revit as a BIM tool. Intended to augment and work with our standard base BIM Execution Plan, these process-oriented tools included a Cannon Design Baseline Model Progression Specification (MPS); a document called Cannon Design Integrated Model Guidelines (IMG); [...]
Cannon Design hosted a BIM writing contest throughout the month of March that encouraged those inside and outside the firm to submit 100 words about why they love BIM. We’ve posted several of our submissions via the blog. Here’s one titled, “Limitations” that comes from Brian Myers, a senior application engineer. The beauty of BIM [...]
Earlier this month, Cannon Design launched a writing contest that asked people to submit 100 words on why they loved BIM. Cannon Design employees are eligible to win a trip to the Revit Technology Conference (RTC) USA in Stone Mountain Georgia and those outside the firm can have their pieces featured on our blog. The [...]
Two weeks ago, Cannon Design launched a writing contest that asked people to submit 100 words on why they loved BIM. Cannon Design employees are eligible to win a trip to the Revit Technology Conference (RTC) USA in Stone Mountain Georgia and those outside the firm can have their pieces featured on our blog. The [...]
I recently received this What’s In / What’s Out for 2011 list from Mike Bennett and colleagues at the Enterprise Data Management (EDM) council, a financial services industry association in the UK. EDM specializes in creating structure for ad-hoc, proprietary one-off and disorganized financial data. I’ve known Mike about seven years through Ontolog, an open [...]
First, it was the iPod. Next, it was the Macbook, the iPod Nano, the 80-gig iPod, the Macbook pro, and finally, the iPhone 4. My personal line of Apple products looks shockingly (or maybe, not-so-shockingly) similar to the most recent infographic floating around in cyberspace these days which highlights the streamline effect on Apple products [...]
For many, the holy grail of modeling surface detail is the ability to “paint” geometry directly onto the surface in 3d space. Imagine being able to generate complex surface effects, or influence subtle variation with the stroke of the mouse or stylus. Of course there are already quite a few tools available such as Mudbox [...]
Man is it HOT in Buffalo (aka “Miami of the North”) these days. As is usually the case for any webinar, there are many of you who missed the presentation (…and lunch…) of the Phase II Standards roll-out last Friday for a variety of reasons (…all legitimate of course…or perhaps golf-course.) Also, many who did [...]
