DESIGN:BIM - A Guide to Utilizing Design in the BIM Process

Customers who purchased BIM After Dark - Volume 1 emailed me asking if I could create a breakdown of my design process (from sketches to final presentation boards).  Well, I finally did!

"DESIGN:BIM" is a simple, easy to follow, guide that takes you through how I use Revit within my design workflow. Click the link of the image below to download now!

GUIDE: Creating Your Own Revit Template

This eBook is not meant to be a technical manual but more of a mini-guide.  I’ve taken my template creation process and broken it down in the simplest, systematic way I could.  When I released BIM After Dark - Volume 2 the feedback was incredible. My personal Revit Template is included when anyone purchased the Complete Package of Volume 2.  Many customers find it valuable to dissect someone elses personal template but they wanted more.  They wanted to know how to create their OWN template.  Therefore, I decided to write this eBook. 

The Autodesk Revit Family Cheat Sheet

The sheet is meant to be your desktop guide to family creation in Revit. I have been making my own Revit content for over eight years now and there are always little things I need to reference from time to time. For example, I always find myself referencing materials online for conditional if statements and correct formula syntax.

Print this guide out on 11”x 17” paper and keep it handy for the next time you are creating custom Revit families.

The Top 5 Family Creation Tips... From the Pros!

In honor of BIM After Dark - Volume 3 releasing next week (March 17th, 2016) I wanted to create a new free eBook with Revit family creation tips. Instead of trying to think of my favorite tips I thought it would be fun (and valuable for you) to include some tips from other Revit superstars!

I reached out to some of my Revit idols (Steve Stafford, Paul Aubin, Michael Anonuevo, andBrian Mackey) and asked them for their top three family creation tips. Be sure to follow all of the bloggers mentioned above if you aren't already.

From there, I narrowed them down to 5 short, simple, and extremely powerful Revit family tips! Continue reading to download this FREE ebook today...
