WFRUG-OCTOBER (reminder)

October 20th from Noon – 1pm we are meeting  at GSBS (375 West 200 South, SLC 84101), to discuss Revit Templates, Browser organization, and any other questions that we can cover in 50 mins.

 Gabe Cottam, a BIM Manager for BIG-D, will be there to mediate the meeting.

 This is a great opportunity to put our heads together and find better ways of  streamlining our workflow, and get some additional Revit help from each other.

We have gotten a few questions in preparation for the meeting. I’m going to keep the survey open until the day before the meeting,
so keep the awesome questions coming!

Greetings WFRUGers. Here is the calendar of events for the remainder of our spring meetings. We will take the summer off and resume again in the fall.

In April we will hear about Revit and Collaboration in the Cloud. This is so important given the direction our business is taking. We will also hear how to use Dynamo, a great plug-in inherent in Revit. Okland Construction will be hosting and sponsoring this meeting.

In May we have a VERY good meeting hosted by the U of U Facilities and Construction group. They are going to share their Close-Out and Lean Standards procedures! This will be held in the School of Architecture building and we would love to get your project managers and project executives invited. Our sponsors for this meeting are Taft Engineering and GSBS Architects.

For our last meeting in June we will do the fan-favorite ‘What’s new in Autodesk 2016’. Note that this will be held during a lunch hour and we will have Autodesk professionals in town for this meeting!
