James, is seeking re-election for the ENnie Awards Judge and Jennifer is seeking one of judging spots  this year as well.  Both need our support  and your votes…
So just what are the ENnie Awards, you ask?  The easiest way to describe the ennie awards is as the people's choice awards to table top RPGs.

Indispensable Time-Savers for Autodesk Revit

I'm slowly getting back into blogging after our glorious holiday in Canada & Alaska… 

During a recent Revit Fundamentals Training course, I'd like to remind all that IMAGINiT Utilities for Revit 2012 are now available on their website and in their client portal - a facility for IMAGINiT’s Autodesk Subscription and Support clients.

IMAGINiT Utilities for Revit 2012 supports only Revit 2012 products however they do also offer versions for Revit 2010 and Revit 2011. 

New for 2012 include…

ViewSetup Cover all the levels, phases and types of views you want with information presented to you in the ViewSetup utility in a grid, you can easily generate dozens to hundreds of new views with ease. 

DWFPlus Create DWF files with more BIM information - whether augmenting parameter data in 2D and 3D, adding hyperlinks, or creating new viewpoints to highlight content, DWFPlus will make your DWFs into the deliverables you expect from Revit.
