RTC - Revit Technology Conference 2015

WOOT.. directly after a lovely vacation I was whisked off to an AMAZING conference.

I had a chance to meet the original 2 men that brainstormed the program REVIT.. (Irwin Jungreis and Leonid Raiz)... they were like Apple's Steve Jobs. 
Humble and brilliant men.. It's was great. There were tons of classes which were full of great information.
I learned a lot and will be implementing these Best Practices here in the upcoming months.. so keep your eyes open.

Some of the items of interest you can expect to see:
  • Revit Project Health Checks (file reviews for best practices and performance)
  • Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality
  • Project Template Organization - file, family and view naming etc.
  • Best Practices for working with LARGE projects
  • Rhino-Grasshopper and Iterative Design (pattern based families  and adaptive components)
  • Updates to the Family Editor - to make your life easier
  • Managing Groups to reduce/eliminate group errors 
  • Behind the scenes secrets for Shared Coordinates
  • Etc. Etc. Etc.
It was a great.
It's also great to be back in the office!!!

Profiles are Included in Copy/Paste

If you need to copy a system family (stair, railing, wall sweep, fascia, gutter, etc.) that has a specific PROFILE embedded, from one project to another.. you can do a copy/paste with confidence.

The system family will copy over and bring with it any profile that is embedded that helps create the shape. Your system family may ERROR when you paste it into the new project.. but the profile makes the transfer just fine.

Example: If you copy a wall sweep.. it will error because it doesn't have a wall to host to in the new project.  No biggie. Your profile made the jump and is ready to be used.

Happy Revitting
