Invitation

Today, it will not be a blog post but an invitation.

Next week, the BIM World event will be held in Paris. This event will gather a large panel of architects, engineers, contractors, manufacturers, and software developers, all interested in Building Information Modeling and related technologies.

I will be representing my company Ingérop here, and will present our last projects using BIM.

I will also give a short speech “Développer les compétences du BIM” about implementing Building Information Modeling in an engineering consultancy firm, and the consequences of this paradigm shift.

I would be happy to meet you there and exchange with you, so if you happen to be in Paris next week, the exhibition will be held on Wednesday and Thursday at the CNIT Center in La Défence.

See you there ….

In any BIM related department, Christmas came generally in May. And with my heart full of joy and wonder, I have downloaded the new version of Revit, hopping to finally find the Answer of the BIM, the universe and everything.
 
So, no, it’s not the Answer, but Autodesk keep going on developing a BIM solution largely accessible by anyone, with a great user interface and, since we aren’t designing the Guggenheim museum of Bilbao every day, large modeling possibilities.
 

For my part, I was quite impressed by the new stairs tool, which is now allow us to design and document properly almost every type of stairs. The new IFC implementation seems finally able to import correctly a model and there are also some improvement in view templates, Revit Server, and many other.

 
If you want a more exhaustive description of these new enhancements, David Light describe them in his blog.
 
I haven’t try yet all these new functionalities, so I will be back on it later on and describe more precisely what we can do whit this new Revit
