360 Sync Update Released!

In All, Construction by Michael ReuterLeave a Comment

Autodesk recently improved some of their APIs associated with Document Management, and because of that, we’re happy to announce that a new version of 360 Sync is available! This new version (Version 2.7.2.3298) doesn’t add any new functionality to 360 Sync, however, it does address some of the API changes. So, if you are experiencing some strange activity with 360 Sync then it’s probably time to update!

Keep Your Revit and CAD Files Properly Coordinated Geometrically

In All, Architecture and Engineering, Construction by Matt DillonLeave a Comment

In the last 15 or so years that I’ve been teaching and supporting Revit users from all disciplines, certain common coordination issues keep re-surfacing. Many of them have to do with a simple lack of communication between the various design team members, but one in particular that can cause a huge amount of frustration for all team members can be easily avoided if a few basic steps are followed at the beginning of the project.

Uncovering Errors in Autodesk Revit Templates

In All, Architecture and Engineering by Matt DillonLeave a Comment

Recently, I was tweaking a Dynamo graph – adding functionality to write level information out to an Excel spreadsheet. In the process of developing this simple graph, I uncovered an error in the default Architectural template that ships with Autodesk Revit 2018.2 (default.rte). I haven’t checked yet, but I suspect that this same error exists in the other Revit templates, perhaps going back several releases. Relax. It’s not a HUGE error, and I doubt it’s causing a lot of problems, but being the OCD individual that I am, I felt it was worth correcting. To find out what the error is, you can view this VERY short Screencast video:

Prior Version Software . . . “But it’s mine! I paid for it!”

In All by Jason PorterLeave a Comment

We take a lot of calls from clients who are upset because they can’t activate their older software.  Usually, the problem is the fact that they cannot install or activate their older software on their new computers. For example, I had a user call regarding the fact that he could not active his AutoCAD 2000 on his Windows 10 system   Yes, you read that correctly. . . AutoCAD 2000 on Windows 10.  Now in this example operating systems have evolved and there is no possible way to get that AutoCAD 2000 installed on a Windows 10 system.  He, of course, was not happy and stated, “but the software is mine. . .I paid for it.”  So let’s clarify one thing first.  No one has ever “owned” Autodesk software. According to the license agreement (that we all agree to upon installing the software), the license is only granted to us “on loan”.

AutoCAD Tip: Copy & Array at the Same Time

In All by Jason PorterLeave a Comment

In my AutoCAD classes I stress the fact that there is so much going on in the software, sometimes you can miss if you don’t read your commandline. I’ve shown this little tip to many seasoned AutoCAD users and I’m surprised at how many didn’t realize it was there.
