Bay Area Revit User's Group Kick-Off Meeting
Hello Fellow Revit users and those curious about Revit! Join fellow
users of BIM technology in the formation of a local Revit users group.
Now that many northern California offices have begun to use this tool,
our hope is to develop a local community of interest to share best
practices, problems, tips, information, and to let people network with
other firms & companies that are using Revit. We will start meeting on
the third Tuesday of every month at the San Francisco AIA office.
We hope for this User's group to be informative for both those who
haven't started working with Revit yet and those users with years of
For the first portion of the evening, we will be presenting a general
overview of what's new in Revit 6.1, demonstrating such new powerful
features as Design Options, Conditional Statements, and much more.
Then we will take an intermission break, with snacks and drinks,
giving everyone the chance to hob-nob and talk, as well as ask questions.
Then we will move onto the more technical portion of the evening,
where we will be presenting complex automated cost estimating by using
Revit, it's ODBC exporting, and Excel. See how you can make a 'live'
cost model, how a Construction company can use data from Revit
(without the Architect having to give them a Revit file), the issues
that arise with using ODBC exporting in Revit, and the added value
working with Revit and BIM can provide for you & your clients.
We'll have some snacks and sodas. If you can, please e-mail me to say
that you are coming, so that I can get a head count. Hope to see you
