SCRUG 3/2014

Autodesk formally launched its campaign to enlighten the masses about the benefits of Revit 2015 today. SCRUG was all about the new features. We were graced with the presence of Steve Stafford - Mr. Revit OP ED. He had on an Autodesk vest and presented the official Autodesk Powerpoint (cleared by Autodesk Legal Department) as if he was Scott Davis Autodesk Employee.

Many other blogs cover the feature list, so I will not repeat that here. There was not any thunderous applause for any single feature or the lot of them together. Many of the features added polish to existing parts of the program. One of my personal highlights was a demonstration of adding a shared parameter to a view title. It is not an earth shattering feature, but a nice to have feature. One of the features, opening up a dialog box when one tries to delete pinned objects, functioned a bit unexpectedly during the demonstration. You cannot delete a pinned object, but if you delete the pinned object's host there, Revit says nothing and both are erased.

Overheard... Cyberpower PC's gaming systems are a good fit for Revit. GSA is looking for a National BIM Director (Contact John Russo for more info). A local BIM conference passed out flyers. BIG BIM Theory is having a BBQ.

Thank you to the sponsors. US CAD, Keller Pacific and Microdesk.
