Hidden Gem

A blogger that I enjoy reading has changed the name of his blog in the hopes of getting better stats. The name was changed to Zooming with Revit. It used to be “Life’s too short to drink cheap wine.” Great name that's really memorable but even more memorable is the great posts that are created on this blog. If you get a chance, bookmark his site... The more hits the more likely he will keep blogging. Ohh... and the site has more than just Revit on its posts.

I was browsing the web and found this site. While it mostly has Green Building articles it has the potential to be a very interesting Revit News site.

Check it out!

New Job, New Design

Three months ago I accepted a position as BIM Specialist at a Boston, MA based Architecture firm with about 200 employees. After 10+ years of working on Architectural projects I have now begun supporting those teams producing the work. I am very excited about this change and the ability to explore Revit, BIM and many other programs with more depth than ever before. Now that I have settled into my position I would like to share with everyone some of what I have learned recently.
