BUGIE January 21

Details

Happy New Year! The first BIM User Group Inland Empire meeting of the year! Tuesday, January 21 at HMC Architects 3546 Concours, Ontario. Arrive between 6:00 and 6:30 to network/chat. The presentations start at 6:30pm.

We will be covering:

"Dimension Styles". We will cover the dimension settings, linear, radial, angular, dual dimensions, dimensioning to masonry openings, and transfer project standards to get a dimension style from another project. We will get into the industry standards for dimensioning. Questions on Storefronts/Curtain walls, "round" walls, slanted walls, and interior walls (center vs face of core) will be answered.

“Materials” Max has recently been working with his team at HMC to have Revit materials, Sketchup materials, and Rhino materials to all look the same when using Enscape. Max will present some of that in preparation for Phil Read’s Enscape presentation later in the year.
