The 3/50 Project

http://www.the350project.net/connections.htmlAlthough this began as a Revit project, this has become a project of Building Information Modeling and the Green initiative.  One aspect of the green initiative is about more than being green in the AEC industry, but also being "Green" on a daily basis.  Have you joined the 3/50 project?  It is important to grow with your community and back them up!  Follow the 3/50 project...it is just as important as turning off your lights regularly.

East Coast CAD has come through!

One of the issues I have come across regarding the full story of Building Information Modeling is getting a digital information to the fabrication machines.  However, now East Caoast CAD has come through and provided us with "new software to provide an integrated design to fabrication workflow for Autodesk Revit MEP 2011 and AutoCAD MEP 2011"!!!

With this initial release of MEP Fabrication to support Revit MEP, it also represents the first release of EastCoast’s patented “Design-to-Fabrication” process.

Roombook Extension

About a week ago, I posted on the ASI AEC Blog about the Roombook extension for Revit.  Although it is a great tool for more detailed quantity take-offs and estimates, BIMReality makes a good point of additional potential, including LEED calculations and Facilities Management.  I think the possibilities for this tool are more extensive than the obvious.  I look forward to see how far we can really take it!

New Year, New Job, New Blog, New Outlook!

Happy New Year!  I know I am late, but better late than never!  The end of the year was like a rollercoaster, and I have landed and wonderful job working for Advanced Solutions as an Application Engineer.  A lot is the same, a lot is different, and I am looking forward to 2011! 

The first thing I did is start an AEC blog for Advanced Solutions:

Building Block and Puzzle Pieces

It's a new year with new opportunities and new challenges...let's conquer them together!
