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.

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.

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.
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:

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

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.
