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.
In 2021, Environment further proves itself to be the best BIM software for landscape architecture.
Time. They say that it flies when you’re having fun. They’ve got it 100% right!
After recovering from the initial shock of the COVID 19 pandemic, and resulting lockdowns, social distancing, and what not, we hunkered down at Arch-Intelligence and went into overdrive. The result – 18 major new features, a multitude of improvements, enhanced usability, increased market penetration, expanding channels, and much beyond. What’s more, with our incredible Arch-team, we had a blast. So, despite the continued COVID rollercoaster, 2021 has whizzed by, and we’re revving up for 2022, which looks like it will leave ’21 in plumes of dust.
Rooftop garden design – How to Create Different Top & Bottom Slopes for a Revit Floor
With this post, we’re doing what we love! We’re initiating a new series of posts that shows our approach to solving common Revit challenges for site and landscape design. Whether it be an underground parking lot, or the roof of a tall building, there are numerous cases where we site designers need to model green areas that lie on rooftops, not the ground.
A more Civil Environment – Insert and Export LandXMLl
With these two features, Environment has brought Autodesk Civil3D closer to Revit® than ever before, increasing interoperability and helping us realize our vision of seamlessly integrating landscape architecture and infrastructure design, with each other and with the Revit workflow.
Celebrating our AU2021 Top Rated Class Award for our class- ‘Landscape modeling in Revit with Environment tools: Overview and workflows’
We don’t like to toot our own horns, but hey, our very own Nehama Shechter-Baraban crushed it at Autodesk University (AU) last month. AU attendees showed their love for Nehama’s session by rating it as one of AU 2021’s top classes, and AU organizers recognized this achievement by posting it on their “Best of AU 2021” page.
Following our stellar AU2021 showing, our top in-house product expert, landscape architect Nehama Schecter Baraban, was hosted on October 20 on Revit Pure live, on the Revit Pure YouTube channel. It was a blast! Thank you Nicolas Catellier for being such a gracious host. We recommend following his channel and blog to learn all about Revit.
For 10 days in October, AEC professionals, product designers, project managers, and thousands of others from all corners of the globe, gathered (this year virtually) for Autodesk’s annual Autodesk University (AU) conference, to teach, learn, and share their ideas. Arch-Intelligence had the privilege of being a premier sponsor for the event, hosting a number of sessions and a comprehensive workshop. All in all, our AU2021 appearance was a huge success and we are glad to see the buzz around Environment is growing fast. Here are some of the resources we created around our AU sponsorship and appearance:
Use this tool to swiftly place any number of rocks, lamp posts, trees, or series of any other Revit family element, along a line, straight or curved. You can use splines, curves, use the ‘Pick Line’ option to use lines from your model, and best of all, you draw new lines and edit existing ones without having to exit the command.
