Boxing update – Today is the day

Ok so I've missed a week of writing. Don't worry it will come in droves after the fight, I've just been focusing on the doing not the documenting this week.  This week has all been about the slow movements that have now been forced into my subconscious. Jab, chin down. Roll, guard up. 1, 2,... Continue Reading →

Weekly Boxing update – Making Weight, or trying to?

I'm trying to hit a target. 106kg, for some this may be easy, for others, like myself, may seem like a real stretch target. I work in an office where the average weight is probably 20kg less than my target.  I have to hit 106kg for the boxing on the 30th of July. We completed... Continue Reading →

Hi Everyone, I'm back again, finally, with a blog post about a boxing event (not lean or design, sorry). Life got in the way, Hen-Do (for the wife), Stag-Do (for me) and finishing up with a wedding, but I'm back now. Let‚Äôs get down to business - I'm taking part in a Charity Boxing event...

Tips, tricks and updates from the experts at Cadassist

Dynamo is a free-to-access visual programming extension which effectively takes Autodesk Revit to the next level by opening up the world of computational modelling. Computational BIM allows Revit users to:

  • Add rules via visual interface
  • Build a system, not just a model
  • Extend to other applications

An increasing number of Cadassist clients are using Dynamo with exciting results, saving large amounts of time by improving the transition from concept to design, exploring more design alternatives and introducing more automation to reduce rework.   Take a look at our webinar on Dynamo that includes real-world examples from Kohn Pedersen Fox, AHMM, BDP and Grimshaw Architects.

To help Revit users take advantage of this transformational technology, we launched a new range of Dynamo courses in November 2015.  So far, the feedback has been terrific.  Here is an example:

With the release of Autodesk’s 2017 (and backwards to 2015 releases) product offerings this system is being replaced with the Autodesk Desktop Application. It’s the same thing; content delivery, but different, granular updates…
