Description

How does a Building Information Modeling (BIM) manager get started in the wonderful world of the Revit building design software API? More importantly, how do programmers keep from getting overwhelmed with custom add-in requests from employees at their firms? We will discuss ideas regarding how to get started programming and how to beta test your custom add-ins company wide. We will also investigate how to calculate the difficulty level for coding a specific idea, and when it is time to take your code to the next level. This session features Revit, Revit Architecture, and Revit MEP. AIA Approved
