It’s Time for Architects to Embrace 3D Laser Scanning, Too
BIM is rapidly becoming more and more prevalent in the AEC industry. As this growth occurs, implementing 3D laser scanning can help designers and engineers process more information and create smoother workflows for a project. For architects, 3D laser scanning is beneficial at all stages of a project.
Bluebeam’s built-in columns are great, but they might not fulfill all of your needs. In this video, Ted Moberg explains how to add fields that deliver the information you need while extracting from your sheets.
In the May From AutoCAD to Revit webinar, U.S. CAD Solutions Consultant, Aaron Wagner discussed general rules, tips and tricks, and a basic step-by-step guide in setting up a Revit Template.
Is this your first time setting up a BIM 360 project? Learn about all of the different sections and best practices for getting started with BIM 360 Project Management, Document Management (Docs), and more!
The annual Autodesk product release is upon us. For users on subscription, products like Revit, 3ds Max, etc. are ready to be downloaded and used right away! Whether you’re an architect, a contractor, an MEP designer, structural engineer or otherwise involved in building design and construction, here’s what’s new for you in Autodesk 2018!
If you are having difficulty creating a deployment only of your Revit install with your Building Design Suite, it is likely due to a known issue with the Revit Content Libraries. Philip Charlson shares a solution to this issue.
While the BLK360 likely won’t be able to be a direct replacement for high-end 3D laser scanning (i.e. Leica ScanStation P40), it can serve as a useful companion to your larger, more powerful scanner.
Now is the time to improve construction projects beyond our current inefficient approach. Learn why change is necessary now, and how designers and builders can improve communications through better connected workflows.
Now, with Revu eXtreme 2015.5, hand-written notes are automatically filtered through the OCR engine and text is added to the Comments field in the markup. Read more from Ted Moberg about this Revu eXtreme 2015.5 update:
In the last blog I started down the road of successful Record Model (RM) creation, because as we know, Record Models are one of the most powerful demonstrations of Building INFORMATION Modeling. In part two, I wrap up this glorious feat with not one, but TWO amazing tips that cause the most grief with RM’s, hard paths versus relative paths and why are there so many links showing? I have shortened certain steps to keep the blog interesting, if you want the full procedure contact U.S. CAD and we can give you the exact steps towards an incredible deliverable that has been tried and tested.
The much anticipated Bluebeam Revu 2015.5 is out! Troy DeGroot shares some of the most anticipated features, plus a how-to on upgrading. Read more from Troy DeGroot to learn about the Revu 2015.5 updates:
One of the most powerful demonstrations of Building Information Modeling is a Record Model. So much that it deserves a two-part blog. If you have any questions after this first one, I can include the answers in the second part. I have shortened certain steps to keep the blog interesting. If you want the full procedure, contact U.S. CAD and we can give you the exact steps towards an incredible deliverable that has been tried and tested. Happy modeling!
Although the rendering option in Navisworks continues to improve, many of us want basic colors for our 3D Spatial Coordination and other useful tools. Many owners are dictating what colors they want model objects to be, to improve communication during design review and other important meetings. Improvement means change, and change often means moving buttons and commands. For those having trouble coloring their models, follow this sequence:
At first glance, I thought AutoCAD 2019 seemed light on new features. But then I heard about One AutoCAD. Check out my conversation with CADLearning’s Senior Content Manager David Cohn about the new release and what it means for AutoCAD users.
Bluebeam Revu now offers improved options for Studio Sessions. Now, the number of files in a session has now been raised from 100 to 5000, and individual file sizes went from 100 megabytes to one gigabyte each! Learn more:
