March 4th Meeting Topics

Here is some great input from our members on topics for the next meeting. There is a poll on the sidebar of this blog in order to vote for topics which interest you. Please send Jay Polding an email if you have other topics or would like to present something yourself.

'Today I was working on the site plan and realized that it takes a long time to develop the skills to to a good site plan in revit, from importing contours from cad to taking cut/fill values, even how to draw curbs. You could do one meeting on site plan and another on stairs. Get some people to present samples of work and step-by step tips on development. You should followup with a blog summary for all to share the notes...'

'I think we should attract New comers to Revit meetings by spending half an hour or around that telling everybody new tips and tricks in Revit. Even sometimes the Basics of Revit so the novice would also think of coming to the meetings.'

'Revit & Integrated Project Delivery
Solid Modelling & best practices for custom family creation.
Revit - Material and Cost Estimating
Templates and Office Standards'

'Well, it could be anything that supplements the building design but I'm thinking specifically about structural and mechanical.
There is a promise there that I don't think is being lived up to, at least in my limited experience. It would be interesting to hear from people who have had some (hopefully better) experience trying to make it work.'

'I’d like to see some examples of how people are using the Revit API and .Net to automate processes.'
