What is impossible? Go ahead and name something. Now prove it. Ah, It is much easier to prove something is possible. I am simply tired of the haters out there saying Revit can’t do “X”, or Revit isn’t a design tool, etc… Just because you can’t, don’t prove nothin’. (Double negatives are tasty when the teacher’s not listening). Heck, even I can’t create this crazy form called a Möbius Band (sometimes called a Möbius Strip), but he can. I am only showing the construction points as teaser.
Revit awaits you on a journey of limitless possibilities through mathematical formulas. With the notebook beginning to unfold, even us mere mortals can start building complex geometry with code. I owe Nathan another beer!

Well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle. What more is there to say?
Slingshot! for Revit!
The Proving Ground by Nathan Miller: Slingshot!… for Revit?.
The NYC Revit Users Group is just an outstanding resource… James does a superb job of lining up great speakers, and December was no exception. Hot off the heals of Autodesk University, and building on what may have been one of the best classes in recent memory, you will not want to miss this. Even though you may not have been at the NYC RUG meeting, you too can experience the awesomeness, brought to your screen over the inter-tubes.
This video features Matt Jezyk and Zach Kron from Autodesk speaking about using Revit and Vasari to implement ‘performance-based design’ techniques. Are you a pre-rational or post-rational modeler? Find out by watching:

Note: I have been trying to convince the Seattle Revit Users Group to follow their lead and make videos public, rather than just members only. That is all I want in my stocking this year. Happy Holidays, everyone!

Echoing the echo from Steve. Way cool. I think this needs to go into the Revit hall of fame. If there isn’t one yet, buildz will be the main attraction. The future will be panelized. Go Zach, go!
Revit OpEd: No Way! Way! Live Slices.
Thinking about this a bit more, you want a panel unwrapping tool? Remember an elevation is just a section that isn’t cutting anything. And that is totally excellent!
