BIM Workshops 2013 (Aug. 2013) (formerly Revit Workshops)
Another fantastic year at BIM Central States, formerly known as Revit Workshops. Success! I’ve been accepted for TWO sessions at BIM Workshops 2013! I will be speaking on Autodesk Showcase and quick development techniques I’ve been able to use for design options and touch on their Augmented Reality app. One on implementing Showcase with Revit and another non-conventional approach to construction documents with a slew of softwares and workflows.
So let’s talk for a moment about Autodesk Showcase as a stand-alone product. Having the chance to experiment with anything new is always exciting and Showcase is no let down. A variety of tools are available for fast formulation of designs. I step through several of these with a Revit model linked into the program. Right away you’ll notice we’re in 3D perspective view. Something Revit hasn’t truly mastered until the second update for 2015.
The major presentation with be my Goodbye 2D drawings, Hello 4D techniques using a sampling of softwares involved. I will have to use two different projectors at the same time and present half of it from an Android tablet. Let’s hope it all goes well since this will involve a lot of moving parts!
