Discussing New Features in Revit 2018 with Jack Trexler and Jason Boehning
In their “Revit 2018 New Features” Skype chat, CADLearning’s Building Content Manager Jason Boehning, and U.S. CAD’s Technical Specialist Jack Trexler, shared their favorite new updates to the Revit 2018 release.
Hello everyone. My name is Jason Boehning, I am the Building Content Manager for CADLearning. I oversee the development of any Autodesk product related to building design such as Revit, Dynamo, Insight 360, and today we are going to focus on the new features in Revit 2018. With us today, I have Jack Trexler from U.S. CAD.
Hello everyone. This is Jack Trexler, I’m a Technical Specialist with U.S. CAD. I mainly focus on the MEP portion at U.S. CAD, but I am involved in all of the AEC products from Autodesk with U.S. CAD.
If you’re a Bluebeam Revu user, you’re probably familiar with the Highlight tool that is found under the Pen menu on the Markups tab. Today, we’re going to look at a different way that I like to highlight objects in Revu with the Snapshot tool.
How often do you find yourself in the middle of a project with a strict deadline, running into struggles that could be solved if you knew just a little bit more about the software program? As users, our weaknesses are most apparent to ourselves when deadlines are close and researching issues will eat up precious amounts of our limited time.
The CADLearning platform is designed to help Autodesk users improve software skills and increase efficiency on projects when it fits in your schedule. The online learning model can work for any user with any learning style at any skill level.
The sale of Autodesk perpetual licensing is coming to an end on Jan. 31, 2017. Learn more about your options moving forward and some strategies to consider prior to the deadline.
BIM reminds me of an elephant. It is an enormous beast, one that cannot tamed all at once. Like an elephant in a fine china store, BIM is a very disruptive practice to the building industry. In the last decade alone the industry has undergone a revolution in both thought and technology. Yet outdated practices continue to be applied to new technologies. Owners, architects, engineers and contractors are feeling the devastation of restructuring work flows and business models to adapt to new tools and a tidal wave of new information.
In the October 10th Infrastructure Tuesday webinar, Nick Harper discussed four ways that you can coordinate data between Revit and Civil 3D. Read on to learn how you can share your project data in a meaningful way.
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 third Orange County BIM Workshops, hosted by U.S. CAD, was attended by more than 100 BIM professionals, representing 60+ companies. Read about more of the event highlights here!
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:
Question: When managing a BIM 360 Glue project, there are two types of administrators: Host and Project. What are the differences between the two?
Expert Solution from Heidi Boutwell, CADLearning’s Infrastructure Content Manager: The role of a Glue user dictates what projects they have access to and their level of access.

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. Here’s why architects need to understand scanning:
Civil 3D 2019 was released a few months ago and with it came some cool new features. Some of the features of course are specific to Civil 3D and some are part of the AutoCAD 2019 new features.
If you’ve ever played the “I’m not touching you game” as a child, you know how important boundaries are and our need for space. Revit families are no different. A 3D element provides a great parametric visual of what we can expect outside of the virtual world, but without the proper clearances the equipment may not be given the space it truly needs to function.
Thinking of using design-build for your projects? How should you weigh the challenges and risks against the benefits and gains? Here are some of the common trade-offs you may see.
