The month of February was dedicated to celebrating topography in Autodesk Revit®, which involved showcasing various tools, expert workflows, and inspiring projects dedicated to landscape architecture and site design. Topography, the study of the land surface, is essential in creating outdoor spaces that are sustainable, accessible, and well-planned, particularly in stormwater management and urban planning. As Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology becomes more widespread, many landscape architects are switching to Revit and the Environment toolset to take advantage of its benefits.
Are you looking to create a surface from Model Lines?
Some of you may have noticed that one of our most popular tools in now missing from the Environment ribbon. Well, good news: it’s not missing; we moved it inside the Topography Tools so that you can enjoy an improved user experience!
While most of us still can’t get enough of the new toys released in v9.0, our development team is ringing in an early Christmas with Environment for Revit® v10.0, making sure you never have to stop playing. Some of v10.0’s gems include:
If AU 2021 was amazing, AU 2022 was beyond exceptional. Our booth attracted thousands of visitors, capturing the attention of professionals across the AEC disciplines. There, with the aid of our US reseller, Team D3 (thank you!), especially Brian Juge (a very special thank you!), visitors were positively surprised, if not awestruck, by what they saw and heard, and they told us so.
Redefining the way we think and work when designing landscapes
By Oren Bar-Ner & Nehama Shechter Baraban
Building Information Modeling, or BIM. Doesn’t sound very earthshattering, does it? Anyone not in the AEC sphere would have a hard time guessing just how far reaching the impact these three nondescript words, and everything that they represent, have had on the discipline of architectural design.
The truth is that sometimes, even design professionals may not fully appreciate just how profound the BIM paradigm shift really is. This is especially true for us landscape designers, who, with the aid of tools like Environment for Revit®, have only recently been able to confidently move forward in the world of BIM.
The licensing plan that will better your business.
Flexibility. It’s one of our core values and the endless possibilities afforded by Environment for Revit are a clear testament to this.
So…. When our clients told us that they really like the idea of the Corporate Licensing Plan, but that the 10 seat minimum is a bit too much for their needs, we, of course, listened. With just a 3 seat minimum and boasting the same centralized administration as the Corporate Plan, the Business Licensing Plan is perfect for small to medium offices or specific departments within larger multidisciplinary firms.
Working with topographies – Having your cake and eating it, plus other sweet treats.
We’ve dropped hints, made comments, prepared the launchpad, and now… the version we’ve all been waiting for is here. That’s right, we’re releasing Environment for Revit® 8.0 into the world, and it’s truly explosive. Dynamite!
Tagging Building Pads in Revit® – A Custom Dynamo Script Wrapped as a Gift
UPDATE: We added the option to change the location of the text using a dedicated parameter in the Dynamo player.
Our focus in this series of posts is, through practical solutions to real-world problems, 4 to help landscape and site-design professionals get the very most out of adopting a BIM approach in their work. As such, when our latest appearance on Revit Pure Live (RPL) turned up an issue not directly related to Environment, but most definitely relevant to our community of users, followers, and readers, we couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to chip in. As you might expect from our team of Revit-loving experts, we not only found a solution, but also packaged it up so anyone who needs it can easily implement it.
And the Oscar goes to… Who else, other than our in-house Revit guru, Nehama Shechter-Baraban, for her star performance in “Modeling Complex Topography” on Revit Pure Live (RPL), the well-loved YouTube channel brought to us by the gracious and super smart Revit aficionado, Nicolas Catellier. THANK YOU Nicolas!
As 2021 fades into memory and the opportunity presented by 2022 looms large before us, we’re grabbing the new year with both hands by including the Environment community in our development plans. Yes, we’ve decided to give you, our matchless group of customers, fans and LinkedIn followers, the chance to be heard and let us know which of our potential features would best serve your needs.
