More CAD & Revit User Group Meeting Supported by Excitech’s industry specialists and in conjunction with AUGI UK.
These forthcoming CAD User Groups held at the Design Technology Centre in North London aim to provide a forum where users are able to share their experiences and knowledge of Autodesk software.
These events will allow users to make better and more informed decisions as to how they can maximise the benefits from using their chosen CAD applications.
Excitech’s User Groups have now been running for four years and have already proved an extremely successful platform for the construction industry to share knowledge and experiences. Spaces are extremely limited and only available to those employed by UK organisations so register today to be part of these events.
“Supported by Excitech’s AutoCAD and Revit Structure specialists, the aim of the User Group is to provide a forum where users are able to share their experiences and knowledge of AutoCAD and Revit Structure, allowing them to make better informed decisions as to how they can maximise the benefits from using AutoCAD and Revit Structure.”
The meeting will be a mix of focused AutoCAD and Revit Structure functionality sessions, open discussion and user presentations.
As with all Excitech User Group Meetings spaces will be limited in order to maintain the environment for effective networking and discussion.

In live on-line demonstrations - web seminars or "webinars" - Excitech will show you how the new Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis software suites can aid fast and efficient structural engineering design.
Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis Professional 2009 is collaborative, versatile, and fast software to help you compete and win in the global economy.
Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis Professional calculates even your most complex models with exceptionally powerful finite element auto-meshing, non-linear algorithms, and a comprehensive collection of design codes, delivering results in minutes, not hours.
Seamless, collaborative workflow and interoperability with 3D bidirectional links to Autodesk companion products, together with an open application programming interface (API) provide a scalable, country-specific analysis solution for many different types of structures, including buildings, bridges, civil and specialty structures.
This web seminar will demonstrate how designs can be created in Autodesk Revit Structure and then analysed in Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis, including:
Revit Extensions (New features)
Model Transfer to Robot Structural Analysis
Design and Change
Bidirectional Data flows between AutoCAD Structural Detailing

The Revit Kid (Jeff Pinheiro) started his Blog on the 12th February this year and already he has produced 8 Student to Student tutorials and 13 Revit Videos
With 21 blog posts during what was left of February and 25 really useful and interesting blog posts so far in March, his blog has to be one of my top 5 to visit on a regular basis.
Well done Jeff, keep up the good work, just don’t create too much in 2009 format we have 2010 and the Ribbon just around the corner and people like to see how to fly Revit from these videos not just the end results.
Inside the Factory is a new blog that started posting on the 1st March. It's a blog about designing the Revit user experience, by Tom Vollaro, Senior User Researcher with AEC Solutions User Experience Team at Autodesk.
His blog has two goals. First, he and his team want to provide a window into how the Revit user experience is designed. Second, they want to establish a conversation with their users to improve the Revit user experience.
Video on You Tube " Designing and implementing this overhaul of the user interface (UI) required a considerable amount of research, data analysis, interaction design, and visual design. It describes the design process that we followed while designing this new UI. This video highlights a few themes that will persist through our blogging on the topic: •Using data to make design decisions•Developing prototypes and iteratively testing by customers•Leveraging design patterns to create flexible and extensible designs. "
This little tool allows you to scan a directory and report its contents to a CSV file (which can be brought into Excel). It can be set up to scan and report file info, folder info, or both file and folder information. Adding to its flexibility you can set it up to only report files with a file extension you specify.
Perfect for the CAD or BIM Manager looking for a way to perform file management audits.
AUGIWorld, is the AUGI official magazine which is published every two months and is made available free of charge to all AUGI members. AUGIWorld "Green Edition" is available to members outside the print distribution areas and to any AUGI member who wishes to receive this enviro-friendly edition.
Ummm I tried looking in the dictionary and on web based dictionaries for the meaning of “countrification” I’m guessing it means made country specific.
Anyway Wai Chu has announced that his structural product team has just released the latest Subscription Structural Library for Revit Structure 2009 in the Autodesk Subscription Centre. The latest library provides additional metric structural content including Type Catalogs (.txt), and/or fully parametric Families (.rfa) such as structural columns, framings, detail components, etc. for the following countries: Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, UK, Canada, Italy, China, Russia and India.
After you download and extract the .zip file, for more detailed information please refer to the “Countrification Content List - 20090206.xlsx”.
