AU University 2008

Autodesk Universtiy 2008 was just held in Las Vegas, Nevada. Needless to say it was fantastic. There are definitely some very interesting things heading our way, for all those of us on the Revit Platform.

Specifically: Revit Structure and Robot Structural Analysis workflow along with the AutoCAD structural detailer software(ASD). We will be able to not only generate and create the 3D model in Revit Structure but push the model out to ASD for shop drawing creation using the CIS/2 format. What I saw was definitely impressive, but I am still very curious as to how the file sizing will be handled in ASD since modelling in the CAD environment can often lead to very big file sizes. Anyone who has used Architectural Desktop can relate to this.

Revit Architecture and Inventor also seem like they are heading toward a more seamless form of communication. A very nice demonstration of curtain walls created in Revit and sent to Inventor for panel sizing and creation was also among the highlights of the conference.

I do plan on posting some more useful tips and tricks relating to Revit Arch. and Revit Struct.
in the mean time watch the clips posted on my blogg and maybe even become a follower of my blog to keep updated as new posting become available.

Thats it for now. Remember to keep living la vida Revit!
