Cross Sections and Volume Tables

If you are like most designers or engineers, you have probably worked on projects where cut and fill volumes were required on each cross section, and you were the lucky one chosen who had to sit and calculate all the volumes by hand.

Real Time Design

Imagine being an Interior Designer and being asked...on the fly...to show different design options, a variety of furniture from manufacturers, carpeting styles, paint colors, etc all from a Revit model? If this sounds daunting or that it would be an impossible task...well, you are likely correct.  But a technology has been introduced to the public that might just be the unintended answer to this problem.

Seiler Software Trainings

I am currently on-site participating in a Seiler training and I just realized that I've never discussed our training here.  We are an Autodesk dealer and have active training centers.  To begin, start by checking out our Public training options:

Bringing SketchUp to the Field

It seems like every day there's something new to review and today I was presented with the opportunity to test bringing SketchUp data into a Trimble Tablet.

Trimble Tablet

Scratch that... I didn't bring it into a Trimble Tablet (but I could have) I used SketchUp ON a Trimble Tablet and then leveraged that data within the Trimble Field Link Software.

Making your Point in AutoCAD and Revit.

Lately I've been working with a software called TPC, also known as Trimble Point Creator. TPC was designed for the engineer or building construction contractor utilizing Revit and/or CAD that needs the ability to create 2D and 3D field points within their design software. Working as a plugin within CAD and Revit, Trimble Point Creator provides the creation of field points for such objects as anchor bolt locations, curtain wall attachments, and hanger or sleeve locations.

You have THAT installed?!?

If you are a network administrator or just in charge of keeping the CAD software  up to date in your office you may enjoy this link:


This is for the Autodesk Asset Locator.  This software has been around for a while, it's a tool that will determine the Autodesk software products you have and where it’s installed (on your network) by locating:

New Autodesk Products Available on Subscription Center

Just a quick note:

The latest releases of Autodesk Products are just starting to ship and have become available for download if you have Subscription. So far I see that AutoCAD 2012, AutoCAD LT 2012 and AutoCAD Architecture 2012 are available for download on Subscription Center.  Expect to see more products (Revit, etc) over the next 3+ weeks.

Also you can get a sneak peak at some of the new program features by visiting the appropriate product page on www.Autodesk.com

Revit Architecture enhancement: the Roombook Extension

Autodesk has recently released an English language extension previously only available in German, called the Roombook Extension.  It's essentially that bridge we've been waiting on between Room Objects and the "bounding objects" such as Walls, Floors and Ceilings they touch.  I wasn't sure about it until I tried it a few days ago, but it's an amazing piece of software worth a look for those interested in generating quantities of materials from their Revit rooms and the modeled objects they touch.
