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:
Performance-Based Design with Revit from James Vandezande on Vimeo.
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!

Been looking for some way to learn more about conceptual modeling in Revit / Vasari? You can join the Vasari development team for some live sessions on specific topics. Join Vasari Talk every Wednesday, bring your own coffee. The announcement is here.
Back already? Good. I must admit after reading that announcement, I’m feeling a little verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves… as Steve pointed out, this slipped some of our notice, as three sessions have already happened (and luckily recorded as part of the Wiki). Read his post for more…

A whole lotta love for 3D and conceptual design is coming out of Autodesk Labs and Autodesk Research this week. Here’s two pieces of news that will get designers to stand up and take notice.
Autodesk Labs has updated Vasari to be compatible with Revit 2012, and added a few new goodies. For a review: Project Vasari 2.0 is now available – The Sustainable Design Toolbox
A new app was anounced: Autodesk 123D Beta
As a result of Carl Bass speaking at the Maker Faire last weekend, we were all treated to a new tool to enable the coming personal factory revolution.
Below is a sample that I whipped up with no training. Oh, and videos are provided to help you get the most out of the feature sets. One of the most interesting is the construction method awareness, which if you are expecting to output using 3Dprinting, or simply want to unfold and cut from flat stock on a CNC machine, there’s little out there that is more straightforward and simple to use. They’ve also teamed up with a handful of online services to help you make your digital creations materialize, and for a limited time, fabs are 50% off.
