What is the agenda?

How to Do Revit to IFC Properly by Kevin Fielding of Sheppard Robson

Do you need to share IFC files on your project? If so, this is an essential session for you. We will explore the importance of interoperability from Revit using IFC. Using the IFC Exporter Plugin, we will explore all the hidden settings, controls, and tricks to give you the confidence, and control as to what information appears in the IFC. You will control Rooms, Space, IFC Classes, and Zone. Not all IFC exports are equal.

Autodesk Revit Apps by Balazs Trojak of Paraforms Ltd

In this presentation we will look at what 3rd party applications are available for Autodesk Revit, what they do and how good they are. It's amazing how much time and effort can be saved on a project with the installation of a relatively inexpensive and sometimes free bit of software.

Revit Tips and Tricks

Quick fire (no longer than 3 minutes each) random Revit tips and tricks. Something for everybody!

Target Audience

This meeting is aimed at Autodesk Revit technical staff whom wish to learn more about how others use the Revit software as the core design product in real world projects. The presentations however are not just limited to talking about the Revit product, and others will be discussed where applicable to Revit users in workflow.

The presenters will assume you have used and understand Autodesk Revit to a reasonable level. If you have not, there is still benefit but you may find some elements a challenge to understand. It is for people that wish to network with users of the software.

Topics of project management, standardisation and industry process, such as BIM are discussed in the context of technical delivery
