Image quality is what distinguishes a great presentation from a good one. That’s why materials, reflections, shadows and lighting have been taken to a new level in Lumion 6. These features and hundreds of other improvements have been enabled by a major overhaul of Lumion´s render engine. The results are now more compelling and realistic than ever.

What’s New in Revit 2016 R2It's that time of year again and Autodesk has released their mid-cycle update to Revit. We should get used to this new release cycle in that Autodesk has told us that this is how they are rolling out new features for the foreseeable future. Speaking of the roll out it appears that they are exclusively using the Application Manager to update to R2 in that I haven't seen a R2 download anywhere in our Autodesk Account. If you need instruction on using the Application Manager here you go.
Below is the full list of new features with links to the Autodesk YouTube Channel. Here are my big 3 so far:
- Draw Visible Elements Only- WOW, just try it for yourself. Very responsive to any visibility changes.
- Per User RVT Load/Unload - No more tug of wars over linked files on Workshared project.
- Family Elements Visibility Settings - Knowing what you have is what you are getting in the project. Great new feature.

BIM is a foundational tool for the success of a process that has existed for years - an Integrated Design Process (IDP). Join us for a series of presentation in which your peers will discuss how they are applying the concepts of IDP and where they are seeing the value.
The key takeaways from this event are:
- A practical approach to using BIM as a catalyst for the long accepted concept of an Integrated Design Process
- The difference between an Integrated Design Process (IDP) and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)
- Current industry challenges and expectations.
This full-day event includes three presentations from five speakers, including a primer on innovative approaches to project delivery, and tips on how best to implement architectural and structural collaboration.
The seminar presents a unique opportunity to gather with like-minded individuals and mingle with experts in the BIM field; spaces are limited, so don’t miss out!
Registration fee is $250 per person.

Applying three-dimensional text on a surface is a great feature in Autodesk Revit. However, there is a constraint, model text can only be applied on a flat surface. So what do you do when you would like to apply a 3D embellishment to a curved surface – say a curved gateway?
