CSI Presentation on Wednesday

Collaborative Construction

CSI, Cincinnati Chapter Education Day Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution! This Wednesday, November 28, I will be discussing the use of building information modeling (BIM) throughout the life cycle of BIM enabled infrastructure and facilities. The presentation provides a big picture view of the benefits of BIM. Specifically how BIM improves the delivery of services by built industry professionals during planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance.

CSI Revit (Part III): Recreating a "crime"

Do

We've discussed how to read journals, and how to use them to track down problems. Journals can also be used to recreate and create. Complex journal files built over a full working session perhaps don't work so well, but journal files created for specific purpose can be useful. For instance, Ken Stowe from Autodesk has in the past created journal files that can be used to sequence a Revit model using multiple phases to generate still frames of a Revit model being assembled.

CSI Revit (Part II): Tracking down the culprit

Do

We left with how to read journal files, and a suggestion on practicing reading them. Today, we're going to talk about where and how they can come in use for some computer forensic detective work. Allow me to set the scene. At Burt Hill we encourage and keep multiple local files when working on a workshare project. This has come in use multiple times, and for multiple reasons. We usually suggest that a user maintain a week's worth, and sequentially overwrite the files.

CSI Revit (Part I): How to read the crime scene.

Do

Do you know what a journal file is? If you have dealt with Autodesk support on an extended issue y ou may have been asked to submit journal files, but you may still not quite know what they are. Quite simply journal files record all your actions during a Revit session, Revit creates a new journal file whenever you start it, and stops writing when you close it.
