Revit University - Thoughts about the Paridgm Shift and the end of the line - #RTCUSA

I want to say thank you to everyone I met and spoke to Revit Technology Conference over the past two days.  It is an honor to be recognized by so many people and to finally meet readers of my blog.  With such a varied range of people I've been able to talk to, I've never been surrounded by so many brilliant, passionate and creative people in my life. 

Every single session I've attended was inspiring and thought provoking.  Being around 280 of leaders of the BIM world has given me so much thought and insight into the future of the AEC industry.  For the life of me, I can't understand why only 280 people attended the conference.  On the opposite side of that coin, what an incredible and intimit gathering of artists and technologists all coexisting peacefully looking for a better way to design and build buildings.

At the end of the day, BIM has nothing to do with technology, software, workflow, process, contracts or anything thing relating to the tools of your job.

Quite simply, BIM is about people.  People who want to work together.  People who want to share thoughts, ideas, visions and all have the same goal, to change the industry for the better with a better way and the ability to agree to disagree and disagree with the status quo. 

I feel terrible for those of you who wanted to attend but don't have bosses who see the value in investing in your learning more and improving the process, and all for the sake of not being to lose you for those precious billable hours.  Shame on them for starving your creativity, desire and passion for BIM.  Shame on you who think that Autodesk University is the best venue and you couldn't attend AU and RTC because of budgets, billing or some other BS.

Will it matter next year?  Wouldn't it be great to blend RTC with AU? No more having to choose between one venue or another.  Wow, kind of like not having to choose between ADT or Revit (a la ADT being added to Revit 9.1 so you had both products in one box).  It will be quite interesting to see what happens in December at AU with all of the Buzz about RTC. There is so much to learn about Revit, BIM, VDC and IPD that we need a class every day to absorb all of the information.

I'm hoping that Revit Technology Conference will merge with BIM Forum as well and meet 3 times a year.  Can you imagine what would happen to have that kind of synergy between architects, contractors and technologists?  I'm so thrilled to be here at RTC US 1.0 and watching the future change before my eyes.  Walk towards the light of Revit with its beautiful white background.  Power to the people who are here making the decisions and changing the fate of the AEC industry forever. 

Thank you to anyone here at RTC who is reading this and who I had the chance to meet and talk to.  We are the BIM 280 USA.   People - Passion - Parametrics.  It's not about the 3D, it's all about the 3P.

It's very simple.  "Keep doing what you've always been doing, just do it in a completely different way" ~Gregory Arkin June 25, 2011

I think this is my favorite post of your many thousands. Every word so heartfelt and true.

Wonderful event and wonderful to finally meet in person. You are well-liked by so many and in many ways (to use a 1.0 tool) are the glue between so many in the BIM world, helping us all bridge design and construction, CAD and BIM, with a lot of laughter along the way. Thank you,


Building Information Modeling June 25, 2011 at 10:12 AM  

CAD (Computer Aided Drafting and Design) enables the construction industry to be lightning quick in their execution without compromising on accuracy. With the help of CAD software, professional graphic developers can prepare high quality images for a building design. This digital image processing technology makes modifications easier and less time consuming. Compared to traditional paper-based architectural designs, CAD conversion services guarantee precision, extensive detailing and low turnaround time.

To optimize the potential of CAD technology for the construction industry, it is being integrated with the Building Information Modeling (BIM) system. BIM manager is an advanced construction project management tool that aims to consolidate information related to different phases of building construction into a centralized platform. With this central repository of project-related information, real-time data access across different functions becomes possible. Automated modification and conflict resolution are other major features of BIM technology which makes it a global hit in the real estate sector.

CAD Conversion Services: Hand Drawings to 2D CAD:
Professionals working for CAD conversion service can convert architectural hand drawings to digital formats at rapid pace. Since these service providers do these conversions on a daily basis, they are both efficient and cost effective. It is better to outsource this specialized task rather than do it expensively and inefficiently in your own organization.

CAD Conversion Services: Scanned Documents To CAD Conversion:
In this CAD conversion service, your service provider will take scanned images of the hand drawn floor plan as inputs and give you 2D CAD format as an output.

CAD Conversion Services: PDF, Word to 2D CAD:
If you received the design in a PDF or Word format, you can still get a CAD conversion service to convert it into 2D CAD format. Since BIM supports CAD formats, this makes your task of construction a lot easier by co-coordinating all the resource requirements.

CAD Conversion Services: 2D to 3D Design:
Finally, your CAD conversion services provider uses different forms of 2D CAD designs to develop high quality 3D prototypes for the building design. These designs are developed by integrating different design forms of specific building sections, such as architectural, structural and MEP (mechanical, engineering and plumbing) formats. Virtual prototypes of the building help in understanding fine details of the design and plan execution effectively.

If you are looking for a reliable service provider for 2D and 3D CAD conversion needs, visit www.bimhub.com. BIMmanager is capable of providing end to end solutions to ensure that your planning and execution are integrated and profitability increased. BIMhub is known for high quality service at affordable rates and less time.
