It’s BILT time (no zoo time, no she or he time, this is gone soon…) – and here is the link to register.
Why should you come – simply you will find a lot of well minded speakers who will help you to resolve your BIM related problems. Just we have fun doing so.
And that’s the it – that is why you should come, that is where you can learn more in 3 days than you can buy consultancy time. (Oops, commercial suicide for yours truly here)
Anyways – not going without a tip:
All family types of a specific loadable family symbol:
Additionally – had a really tough one on removing corrupted shared parameters from a file – here is the workflow:
This gives me a list wit IDs:
Now just select the ID Number – go to:
Then hit Delete – the button on your keyboard…
And life is good…
It is the time of the year and – giddy up – BILT Europe 2017 is coming around.
See info here.
So – get saddled up and come along – the program is top notch – the learning experience you can take back into your daily routine will be grand.
No excuse for missing out.
For the rest of the day a little teaser… we have a complex project going on where we just turned project orientation and all of a sudden we had an abundance of walls off axis and you know these kind of warnings that you never ever want to have in your project.
Solution – Dynamo again, and this is the workflow
Too hard to read – get it here.
Life is good…
The Sparks played in The Hague Thursday night and it was grand. You may or may not like them but for people in the late 60ies and early 70ies… I digress…
Our friend out there seems miserable and when you have to do bread and butter stuff and need to rationalize these sort of challenges I can clearly understand… understand what?… understand almost anything…
Interesting find of today – Steven, a really good friend of the family here helped me to get B-Processor running – check it out here.
Proof of concept…:
If you want to goof around with it get JAVA SDK 1.5 – current is 1.8 but there had been substantial changes in between – it won’t start up in JAVA 1.8
Anybody interested – PM me… #geekfuntime
Life is good…
If this is true we have a nasty issue in our fav lil’ol modelling platform – see here.
And the dear people at Autodesk might take note to fix stuff like that… IMHO
Other than that – Life is good…
Nice find there… https://wordpress.com/post/shutupandbim.wordpress.com/540
Remember The Who? Their first mini opera… A quick one… The guitar arpeggios with the Dsus4 chord at the beginning – made me try over and over and over again…
Anyways – a quick litke trick – we are modelling this handsome building at the moment ans you know how the analytical model enabled can drag your performance down. Moving a wall takes ages…
And that is what we are talking about – four stories done, four more to go
So – why not just disable the analytical model while editing and turning it on later again – bummer, it’s an instance parameter:
Big fun doing it manually – so Dynamo to the rescue
Disable Analytical Model from Moidelical.
All it takes is this – the boolean is the toggle to disable and re-enable
For those of you who try to avoid custom packages – here is the broken down version:
Anyways – life is good…
PS.: I just reviewed the model and here we go:
Zero Warnings – We’ll keep it that way…
Our friend here has a statement to make: https://shutupandbim.wordpress.com/2017/09/02/starless-and-bible-black/
Last couple of days had been a bit quiet and focused on production work and “future opportunities”.
The latter term I like a lot because 1 in 10 of advertised “guaranteed projects within the next 2 months” actually translate in money in the bank. But that is a small business rant.
More importantly – the workflow described above is sorta kinda cool – poll – what do you think?
Tip: Brian Eno – here Comes The Warm Jets album. Anyways – a quick update here.
And just for the records – I expect bashing on this remark – 3D PDF is cool IMHO….
File will come later due to IP restrictions…
Party time – production work to do. Now we here at LRCZ can put all the theory to work in a production environment – so we beta test our templates and families and Dynamo workflows…
Number one – the current project looks cool – growing day by day:
On the Dynamo side of life – not so much new unless you really want to know how to document all parameters in a Revit family.
Modifying the names will be the next step so stay tuned – a little spoiler:
Thanks to Peter Kompolschek for this code snipplet.
Now let’s translate – but that is a very different story.
Life is good…
Basic list management in Dynamo debunked.. here.
Meanwhile the staff at Livingroomcraftz is battling complex floors like these ones…
Duh – complex – stay tuned for more…
