Hardware Part 2

Just a little note about hardware and I'll get a lot of flack for this, but it's been my personal experience and opinion that you can never go wrong with Dell. Yeah, you can build your own machine or have your local IT guy tell you he'll save you a bunch of money by building the machine for you.

If you have someone build you a computer and they disappear, what do you do about warranty and repair? If they bought the components on Ebay and they were defective, what do you do? If you bought some funky video card from an unknown company and you can't find video drivers that work with Autodesk products, what do you do?

Let me clarify. If you're building a home computer, go ahead and build yourself a computer if it's not the computer that your buisness and income depend upon. If you're getting a computer for business, you have to go with reliability and dependability. Yeah, I know there's someone reading this now who had a horror story with Dell. Well, everyone's had a computer horror story at one time or another. Want to know how to fix that? Backup up your data frequently. On a side note, I recommend a new service called www.sugarsync.com For $15/month, they'll backup 100gb online for you and you can sync that data with other computer and access through a secure web portal. You can even go the web portal, select a file and email it to someone. It's the most convenient service I've ever purchased. As soon as you change a file, it instantly uploads it. Of course, that's going to suck if it's a 100mb Revit file, but that's life in the backup lane.

So, I recommend the Dell Precision Workstation as a benchmark for pricing and hardware.
They'll always be around and their drivers are the easiest in the world to find. Dell Precision Workstations are specifically made to be engineering machines. They're not for gaming or word processing. They're heavy on the video card which is just what you need.

So, as my parting gift, here's the contact for my Dell Premium Business account.
Kelli will give you the best pricing and knows her stuff. You'll get what you need and you can take advantage of my account discount.

PS. Only contact Kelli if you're located in the US.

Revit Tip: Revit Wall Cleanup

Question:
I just had a quick question that I cannot seem to find the answer anywhere. I am working on a temporary classroom for a local school. The walls consist of (from interior out) : 2 layers 5/8" gyp., 3 5/8" metal stud, 1/2" sheathing, rigid insulation, air gap, and brick veneer. The problem I am having (and I have tried it with numerous types of walls) is when I go into the wall properties and then click modify, unlocking the base of the brick, I then go into a section of the building and pull the brick down to its respective shelf. When I do this the wall does not clean up correctly. I tried this with many different sidings. Immediately after I unlock the bask of the Finish and pull it down it does not clean up. Please tell me you have ran into this problem, or know someone who has. Is there a different way or workaround to bring brick or a shelf or bringing siding down and overlapping the foundation?

Answer:
At the current time that is a pretty significant limitation of doing a wall in the manner that you're trying to do it.. The workaround is to create 2 separate walls consisting of the, 2 layers 5/8" gyp., 3 5/8" metal stud, 1/2" sheathing, rigid insulation, and air gap followed by the second wall consisting of the brick veneer only, that way, you can get the results you need..

What kind of computer do you need if you're using Revit and want to do renderings.

After my recent post about our new advanced Revit rendering class (found here) I've gotten some emails from folks wanting to know what kind of computer requirements are needed to do the renderings we posted. Here are Mark's comments on the computer he's using and what he recommends

This is my current Revit Rendering Box..(by Mark Rothman)

Since Revit is capable of using up to 4 cores for rendering, I went with a mid/high end Quad Core, Intel Core2Quad Q9450 that runs at 2.66Ghz per core although if you’re planning to use 3DS Max for final renderings, the use of a Dual Processor Quad-Core Xeon system is suggested..

In terms of memory, I currently am using a 32bit operating system (XP) that gives me a limit of 4GB (using the 3G switch to take advantage of all 4GB), however if this will be used in a 64bit operating system (Vista 64), the use of 8GB of memory is recommended.

As for a video card, The Nvidia Quadro FX3700 512MB card is the high-end card of choice for both Revit as well as 3DS Max (The Quadro FX1700 is more than enough video card if you’re only going to be using Revit and not 3DS Max)

Some FAQ’s

SLI video: Even on the high-end systems, it’s not really the performance increase you’d want from spending double the price on your already expensive video card choice.. You’ll be better off purchasing the higher-end processor or one step-up in video card for the price savings..

Windows 32bit vs’ 64bit: This is a tough question because it directly relates, not to Revit, but to the other software that you’ll be using on the computer as well.. From 3rd party plug-ins to accounting software, if it’s going to be used on the system, you must make sure that the other software is compatible with the operating system you’ll be installing..

Dual Core or Quad Core processor or Multi-processor dual/quad core Xeon’s: Revit uses “one” processor thread, meaning a dual core 3Ghz processor that runs less than $200 will run Revit’s day-2-day duties will run faster than the Quad-processor, Quad-core Xeon @2.66Ghz that together will run you over $5k.. Now when it comes to renderings, like stated above, Revit does have the ability to access up to 4 cores/threads at a time, meaning the Quad Core 2.6Ghz Q9450 will get through renderings faster than that Dual Core 3Ghz.. Simple answer is this.. If you’re planning to do renderings, Fastest Core2Quad wins.. if you’re using it as a production box, Fastest Core2Duo wins.. Only those people that will be using this rendering box as a dual purpose Revit/3DS Max rendering should even look into the Dual Xeon processor boxes..

Greg's Note: When the 64 bit version of Revit is released, we will readdress this. We're hoping they'll release it soon, so you may want to factor that into your future hardware purchase.

This has nothing to do with Revit, but will help automate everyone's life

This post is about phone systems.

First, If your office has a phone system and not direct dial, consider putting your extension # on your email signature and next batch of business cards.

Here's my real pet peeve. You know how you call someone's office, and you don't know their extension, and you have to do the dial by name thing. Some systems are by first name and some are by last, and of course, they never mention that.

Well, when you finally find the person's name in the directory, the system says "Please hold while I transfer your call to Bob Smith. Well, Bob doesn't answer and when you try him again later, you have to go through the same process.

Know what would really make everyone's life so much easier? When Bob records his name announcement in the phone system, he records it as "Bob Smith Extension 127". That way, when you do the dial by name thing you hear "Please hold while I transfer your call to "Bob Smith Extension 127". Now, next time you need to call Bob, you have his direct extension and don't have to go through the dial by name nightmare again.

So, tomorrow morning, when you get to the office, please rerecord your name announcement in the phone system. That way, when a Revit user is calling you, he can save even more time in his life.

Now, press 1 for more options.... Read more...

Revit Renderings - No reflection on you.



Here's a little something from our Revit Rendering expert Mark Rothman.
We're planning on creating a class in advanced Revit renderings. Apparently, this type of rendering isn't a simple as it looks. By the way, Mark created the desk from scratch and we can offer a custom class on furniture creation in Revit if you'd like.
If you're interested in a class on Advanced Rendering or Custom Family Creation, please contact me, and as soon as we have enough people, we'll have web based classes on the topics.
These custom classes can be taken over the web or at our office. Now that gas is so expensive, the web based training can really make a difference.

The Essence of BIM

I've been wanting to create this graphic for the longest time. Here is a true picture of what BIM really encompasses. It's not just about Revit. It's a lot of different programs all connecting the information.

After all, Revit sits on a database of information and the APIs let you link it to other programs. It's also about a lot of different people, companies, firms, consultants and software companies like Autodesk (and even Bentley) working together.

Over the next few days, I'll try and do a post a day on each of the these special programs.
In case it's not obvious, the Autodesk programs are in the orange text and the peripheral programs are the logos with the dotted line boxes and the lovely red arrows showing where they fit in to the BIM picture.

If you've been using Revit for a while, it's time to go to the next level with these products. If you've just started with Revit, you're still way ahead of your Autocad competitors. If you are still using 2D CAD drafting, you are so far behind the curve it's time to start worrying about the future.

Yes, all of these programs cost money and require training, but the increased productivity should outweigh the need to spend more money on salary. That's the Return On Investment (ROI) of BIM.

Please contact me if you have any questions on any of these products. I don't care what state you live in. We can get you pricing and demonstrations if you wish.

The sky is falling....Autodesk and Bentley to Advance AEC Software Interoperabliity.

News Release Issued: July 8, 2008 4:01 PM EDT

Autodesk and Bentley to Advance AEC Software Interoperability

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. and EXTON, Pa., July 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- At a joint press conference, Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) and Bentley Systems, Incorporated, two of the leading providers of design and infrastructure software, today announced an agreement to expand interoperability between their portfolios of architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) software. Autodesk and Bentley will exchange software libraries, including Autodesk RealDWG, to improve the ability to read and write the companies'
respective DWG and DGN formats in mixed environments with greater fidelity.
In addition, the two companies will facilitate work process interoperability between their AEC applications through supporting the reciprocal use of available Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). With this agreement, the companies aim to improve AEC workflows by enabling broader reuse of information generated during the design, construction, and operation of buildings and infrastructure, and by enhancing the ability of project teams to choose among multiple software sources.

Interoperability has emerged as a critical issue for users of design and engineering software. A 2004 study by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology found that users bear direct costs of almost $16 billion annually from time wasted due to inadequate AEC software interoperability. By virtue of this agreement, and the interoperable offerings that it will enable, AEC firms will be free to employ software tools of choice from either Autodesk or Bentley to accept or submit either DWG or DGN files. By improving fidelity of work shared between the two file formats, users will be able to focus on being creative and getting work done, rather than being constrained by file-compatibility considerations.

Through supporting the reciprocal use of their available APIs, Autodesk and Bentley will enable AEC project teams to combine products from both providers within integrated workflows. For instance, a design team could use a mixture of Autodesk and Bentley software, such as Autodesk's Revit platform and Bentley's STAAD and RAM structural products, and simulate and analyze their designs or manage project information using Autodesk NavisWorks software or Bentley's ProjectWise.

Norbert Young, FAIA, president of McGraw-Hill Construction and former chairman of the International Alliance for Interoperability in North America, said, "This groundbreaking agreement directly addresses many of the critical issues detailed in the October 2007 McGraw-Hill Construction study on interoperability in the construction industry (http://construction.ecnext.com/mcgraw_hill/includes/SMRI.pdf). I applaud both companies for their foresight and leadership."

Added Patrick MacLeamy, FAIA, CEO of global architectural firm HOK and a founder and current chairman of the International Alliance for Interoperability (IAI), "As a longtime advocate of interoperability, I welcome this agreement as an important step toward enabling AEC information to be more broadly shared, increasing the value of BIM to our clients."

"Autodesk recognizes that many customers use our products in mixed environments, and this agreement will help to better support these firms,"
said Jay Bhatt, senior vice president, Autodesk AEC Solutions. "As part of our commitment to provide technology that improves productivity and efficiency across the AEC industry, we're pleased to enter into this agreement with Bentley Systems -- Autodesk's largest development partner -- and together help customers design, build, operate, and maintain the world's infrastructure."

"Bentley and Autodesk share a goal of enabling the creation and operations of better-performing infrastructure," said Greg Bentley, CEO of Bentley Systems.
"Realizing that our mutual users bear unnecessary costs resulting from lack of interoperability, we came together to finally make information reuse the norm. By raising its sights beyond file format issues, the resource- constrained AEC community can better serve us all." Read more...

Green Building Council modifies LEED program - Sacramento Business Journal:

Sacramento Business Journal

Monday, July 7, 2008 - 7:53 AM PDT

The U.S. Green Building Council is changing its certification process for green buildings through its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program.

A 30-day online public comment period ended June 22, and the new version, dubbed LEED 2009, is slated to debut in January.

More than 1,500 buildings -- including more than two dozen in the Sacramento region -- have received LEED certification since the program was introduced in 2000, and more than 11,000 are seeking it.

In those eight years, the USGBC has changed the way architects, contractors and developers design and construct buildings. Even structures that don't pursue LEED certification are increasingly incorporating sustainable practices. Such steps include increased energy efficiency, daylighting, recycling materials, non-polluting carpet and paint, and low-flow water fixtures and toilets.

LEED certifications are available in eight categories: new construction, existing buildings, commercial interiors, core and shell, retail, schools, health care and homes. Another category, for neighborhood developments, is in the pilot stage.

LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. Points are awarded for specific practices in each area and are verified by an independent third party. Depending on the number of points earned, a building is awarded a certified, silver, gold or platinum ranking.

LEED 2009 will reorganize the commercial rating systems by consolidating, aligning and updating them into one system that's "simpler and more elegant and committed to continuous improvement," USGBC spokeswoman Ashley Katz said.

Points will be allocated differently and reweighed and the entire process will be flexible to adapt to changing technology, account for regional differences and encourage innovation.

"These changes -- giving LEED an umbrella rating system -- will streamline the process and make it less confusing, especially for nonpractitioners," Jackson said.

Jim Williams, national director of design for Charlotte-based architecture firm Little, said the new version is indicative of the USGBC's open-mindedness. "It sees it has a clear responsibility to stay in front of the issues. They are doing a good job of making the process better, and it is evolving in a positive way."

The certification process has been criticized for being too rigid, cumbersome and demanding, for being too costly, and for awarding points illogically. A common example is that installing a bike rack gets one point, as does installing a costly HVAC system.

Fees are based on the size of the project and are assessed for registration, design review and construction review. Jackson said the fees are not significant and dismisses the other complaints.

"There are a number of ways you can achieve certification, and it's only hard to achieve if your mindset is traditional construction," she says. "One of its strengths is its flexibility."

Still, either because they are uncomfortable with the process or its costs, some builders and developers incorporate green features and sustainable practices in their projects but do not seek LEED certification.

But, notes Jackson, "without third-party verification, there is no proof for what they've done. Verification does make a difference to people."

Williams said: "LEED certification legitimizes a building's practices and gives it credibility. You can say your building is sustainable, but compared to what? You can't go into being green halfheartedly. To be effective, you have to address issues at the highest levels."

Still, he adds, "Every little bit helps."

"Lilypad" Cities Designed To Combat Rising Sea Levels (PHOTOS)

Blue, The New Green - Screw it. As long as we've got hurricanes, floods and rising tides, you can't beat this as an idea. I know my house will eventually become a waterfront property, I just don't know when...
I know this is supposed to be a Revit blog, but I just totally love all of this creativity with green and sustainable design. Hopefully, this inspires all, or at least some of you, to make a difference in the world.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/07/03/lilypad-cities-designed-t_n_110771.html

Huffington Post | July 3, 2008 03:55 PM

Scientists are preparing to deal with 'climate-change refugees' as rising sea levels threaten ever more lands. Architect Vincent Callebaut has come up with an inspired solution: "Lilypad" cities that will essentially be giant, self-sustaining ships floating across the world's seas (from Daily Mail, scroll down for photos): The Lilypad has been designed by award-winning Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut who says the 'ecopolis' offers a long term solution to the looming problem of rising sea levels.

As land-based cities flood, the Lilypad will be able to float around the world like a giant ship. He said: 'The design of the city is inspired by the shape of the great Amazonia Victoria Regia lilypad.

'Some countries spend billions of pounds working on making their beaches and dams bigger and stronger. 'But the Lilypad project is actually a long term solution to the problem of the water rising. 'And it has the other objective of providing housing for refugees from islands that have been submerged.' Centred around a lake which collects and then purifies rain water, the Lilypad will drift around the world following the ocean currents and streams.

It will be accessed by three marinas and will also feature three 'mountains' to offer the inhabitants a change of scenery. Power will be provided through a series of renewable energy sources including solar, thermal, wind energy, hydraulic and a tidal power station. The city will actually produce much more energy than it consumes and be entirely 'zero-emission' as all the carbon-dioxide and the waste will be recycled. Mr Callebaut added: 'It's an amphibious city without any roads or any cars.
