Once again, it feels like just yesterday that I was writing about the new features of Revit 2017 that I was looking forward to…but here it is July, and I haven’t gotten to use them yet. (Ahem…Service Pack 1 is out…you’re welcome.)

But I haven’t been bored waiting for our clients to upgrade–it’s events-preparation season!

Next week is RTC North America in Scottsdale, AZ. This will be my second trip to RTC (after last year’s event was held in my own backyard in Washington, DC, which they apparently deemed “not hot enough” in July), and I’m excited to be leading a forum discussion on “BIM for Existing Structures”. Between my own experiences and what I hope to hear from my fellow attendees, there should be plenty of material for blog posts! (Whether I have time to write them may be another story.)

We’re also starting to look ahead to AU 2016. I’m leading a roundtable on existing BIM there too — those classes fill up fast, so be sure to sign up early! I’ll have more on  AU as we get closer to the live event in November.

And last but not least, I recently had the pleasure of appearing on the BIMThoughts podcast with Bill Debevc and Carla Edwards. (Previous guests have included Brian Mackey, Paul Aubin, Steve Stafford, among others…y’know, just a few people you may have heard of.) We had a great chat about existing buildings and structural BIM in general — you should take a listen!

I hope to see some of you at RTC next week — I’ll be tweeting from there, so you can find me online even if we can’t meet up in person.
