SARUG – Meeting Aug 17, 2010

August 13, 2010

Our August meeting is scheduled for this coming Tuesday. 
We will be at Breckenridge again and EEC has volunteered to host refreshments.

I’ll be covering how to set up and create an animation and Steve will hit some RAC2011 highlites.   

I’ve been in contact with Dan Russell with Sundt’s SIMCON Department and he has volunteered to give a presentation on the GC’s BIM perspective, which we will try and schedule for our October meeting.

September’s meeting is shaping up to focus on the Civil aspects of BIM and I’m talking with Sharon Gaul at Eaglepoint about possibly doing a live webcast of their LANDCADD product “Siteworks for Revit”. If this program does what the video suggests you’re going to love this application. This just went on my Christmas list, a must have.


If you can’t wait and want to find out more I’ve included Sharon’s correspondence to me below with contact info.

Dear Carl,

Since Eagle Point released its LANDCADD for Revit product nearly a year ago, the single most requested feature we have heard from Revit users, AUGI, and Autodesk is the ability to easily manipulate a toposurface inside Revit. Whether it is to conceptualize a site, edit an incomplete toposurface or for visualization purposes, it has always been a challenge for Revit users to easily edit the toposurface. So much of a challenge in fact, that many users we speak to have mentioned they have given up trying and either outsource the work or do the editing outside of Revit.

I am excited to let you know that Eagle Point is releasing Siteworks for Revit to address the challenges that Revit users have in manipulating and editing toposurfaces directly inside Revit. With Siteworks for Revit, you can easily model the site, create streets, parking lots, retaining walls, sidewalks and curb and gutter, all while managing the toposurface. Visit http://enews.eaglepoint.com/m/ab0GdwhG3DsoYAqbRufO3lENj7wnASQnPFbkbn_KV0E-7-mjng for more information.

I would like to schedule a call with you to learn more about how you are using Revit and to better understand how Siteworks may benefit your organization. Call me today at 800-678-6565 ext. 3147 to learn more about Siteworks for Revit and the promotion we have going on through the end of August.
