Want to Crash Revit?

CAD Shack

Google Sketch Up 6 is out now. I just down loaded it for my kids. They think it's play-dough for your computer, and I reckon it's about that easy and fun. A weird thing happened when I tried to to bring a Sketch up 6 file into Revit Building 9, it crashed with extreme prejudice. I had to write about it because crashing Revit is so hard, when you finally find something that will crash it consistently , it was almost fun.

AU 2007, Overview

bimx

I waited a few weeks before posting anything else on AU for a few reasons. The largest reason was that I've been busy! We're (still) closing out our largest Revit project yet, so there is so much to keep track of and coordinate.) Second, though, is that I was thinking that some time would help me clarify why I left AU so disappointed. I met some amazing people at AU. I also took some phenomenal classes (my favorites were the few of Robert Green's CAD management classes I took).
