Staying Informed

by

At the May RUG Event I showed everyone where I find information and stay on top of all of the developments around BIM and Revit (not to mention a huge number of other subjects).  From this presentation I’ve added two Links sections to the right hand panel of this blog, the first is blogs from Autodesk and the other links of interesting blogs or websites.  Please email me if you’d like to add other links to those sections.

I recommend Google Reader for subscribing to the blogs.  Its a great way to follow all of the updates without having to visit heaps of sites or have lots of Bookmarks.  I understand that Outlook can also subscribe to blogs\RSS feeds and there is also a few other apps out there.  If you can suggest one then please add it to comments. For those of you with smart phones there is a bunch of apps that will let you read those blog feeds on your phone.

I also mentioned two other sources for help… www.revitcity.com and www.augi.com

So hopefully you now have lots of places to find help and information and maybe even find something that you’d like to investigate and present at the next RUG!! (I’m forever hopeful!)

Cheers

Matt

    Hi RUG[Well]

    Could you hook me up with a plug.

    I’m on show at the AIA 2010 National Convention and Design Exposition: Design as Exploration.

    Reed Construction Data are using vTourInteractive at Booth 2073 to showcase their SmartBIM spaces, which are pretty cool in themselves, pre built medical, education and more to come.
    The Reed booth is just across from the Autodesk booth.

    It’s on June 10-12 Miami Beach Convention Center and Reed Construction Data is the Inaugural Strategic Partner of the AIA.

    Here is the Reed SmartBIM link to their revit spaces

    Here’s the online version of the vTour

    And here is a download of the standalone PC version

    Download and put the data file and the .exe in the same folder and have fun.

    Cheers
