We are going to discuss the gamut of possibilities for visualization of models created in Revit.  We plan to break these techniques down into a menu of approaches based on the effort and expertise required to provide different levels of visualization for your clients.

The event will be on Thursday, February 8th 2018, starting at 6 PM and ending at 9 PM.  The venue for this event is the HOK, St. Louis Office at 10 South Broadway (Suite 200), St. Louis, 63102.  See below for parking/access information.

STLRUG - October 2017 - Learning Event

Hello St. Louis Revit Users!!
I know that if you are like me, it has been a very busy Summer season, with little chance to catch my breath!  The Construction industry in St. Louis is booming and most firms are crazy busy right now.
With that said, I know the STLRUG group has been pretty dormant since early summer.

So we want to kickoff Fall with a Learning Event and then try to have one more Happy Hour before the holidays are upon us.

The STLRUG October Learning Event will bring in an old friend of our group to showcase the latest technology used for Construction Layout using the Revit model as the base.
Billy Marks from Topcon Solutions will show us the latest workflows using the Revit Model, BIM 360, Autodesk Point Layout and a Total Station to derive layout points from any element contained within a model and demonstrate how that information can be sent directly to the field and used for Construction layout on site.  This technology is becoming more mainstream, and will (in my opinion) eventually become the Standard for Site layout when models become a deliverable.  This technology can save countless man hours in manual Construction layout.

The Learning Event will be held on Tuesday, October 24th, 2017 from 5:30-8:30 PM.
Hors D'oeuvres and Networking begin at 5:30 and the Presentation will start around 6:30.

The Event will be held at  KAI Design & Build, 2060 Craigshire Rd., St. Louis, MO 63146.

If you are on the STLRUG mailing list, you should have received an RSVP invitation to the event.

The RSVP website can found at the following link:

stlrugoctober2017learningevent.splashthat.com


Please plan on joining us, and bring a friend!

P.S. - We will then try to schedule another Happy Hour event for November or Early December to wrap-up 2017!
