Revit 2020 comes through with new features and enhancements that help AEC teams deliver projects more productively. Join us at NY Revit User Group as Roger Liucci of Microsol Resources shares what’s new in the latest version of Revit. Autodesk captures user feedback and requests via the interactive Revit Ideas page and maintain a public Revit Road Map that outlines the direction of Revit software development in three areas: Create: Creating models that capture design intent at a high degree of accuracy and detail is central to why you use Revit. Our goal is to help you create project data in all phases while engaging in a delightful, intuitive, and contextual experience. Optimize: Because you’re always striving to create better designs using the best possible tools, software development works to support both. We’re working on features and functionality that enable you to analyze, simulate, and iterate and pick the best design options. We’re optimizing software performance to help you work more productively and automate routine tasks, so you can focus on the design. Connect: With more multi-disciplinary collaboration and detailed design engineering done up front, we’re considering how you integrate teams and products. We support multidisciplinary project teams and tools that connect design to fabrication for structural steel and precast and that connect MEP modeling to fabrication. About the Presenter: Roger Liucci is a building information modeling (BIM) and 3D printing specialist at Microsol Resources, an Autodesk Platinum Partner in their New York office. He has provided BIM implementation, support and training to architectural, engineering and construction firms for almost 20 years. Roger is particularly interested the interaction between design and technology innovation as it relates to digital fabrication and cloud computing. Among his software specialties include Autodesk Revit, Navisworks, 3ds Max Design as well as Rhinoceros. Roger is also a certified 3D Systems technician. Roger studied Environmental Architecture at Arizona State University and SUNY Farmingdale. He has given talks on building information modeling and technology innovation at Autodesk University, AIA seminars, and the Revit User Group.
This is a collaborative event with our friends at LNMOP: http://www.lmnopnyc.org/ The “cloud” doesn’t really exist. What exists is equipment that help us store and process information. Let’s see how architects and engineers best use that. In a world of more and more complex IT system, we are more and more on IT consultants without even understanding what is being said. To make the right decisions it is essential to develop a basic understanding of the options and how they relate to your practice. We will mainly explore three different services: – “cloud” storage – “cloud” computing – “cloud” infrastructure Each of these concepts has its own “secret sauce”, advantages, and disadvantages, which are applicable in different ways to different firms. We will evaluate these and help you understand which apply best to your practice. Learning Objectives: - Translate increasingly complex and convoluted IT & BIM jargon into plain English - Understand different system commonly referred to as “the cloud”, what they have in common & how they differ - Understand the advantages and disadvantages of “cloud” systems as they relate to AEC business - Attendees will relate learned concept to their own size and type of practice
