BILT EUR and IFC

BILT EUR, formerly known as RTC, has been one of my favorite events since its very beginning in Delft 2013.

This year I’ll be speaking about IFC and the brand new IFC for Revit manual on the first day of the event.
The manual has been created and published in English and in German.Having a look at the Agenda, I’m sure it’s going to be a great event again and I’m looking forward to some familiar faces and interesting conversations!  Also, I might have a quite prominent co-speaker and colleague, so stay tuned 🙂

Go BIG with Revit and Photoshop

As you may now, I’m a big fan of nice architectural presentations – who ever said a BIM model cannot be smart and pretty? 😉 Years ago, I presented at AU Germany and RTC EUR a session called “Architect’s Next Topmodel” – you can still view my PREZI or download the handout.

A couple of days ago I stumbled across this great tutorial on how to create axonometric drawings in BIG-style with Revit and Photoshop – also there are a lot of other great tutorials on this channel:

Insider Tip for all Revit and BIM enthusiasts: That BIM Girl Youtube Channel!

There are probably very few things you can think of and for which you won’t find a Youtube video about (actually, are there really any?.. )
Obviously, there are tons of beauty and fashion channels, but when it comes to BIM and Revit, there is probably just a handful of really good sources – well I know we can’t all be nerds, but I’m really glad there are a few of us out there and I would like to introduce you to a really great Youtube Channel by Jacqueline aka “That BIM Girl”. Jacqueline is studying civil engineering and architecture in Munich and I had a chance to meet her a couple of weeks ago and chat with her about the new Revit 2019 features. It was not only a great pleasure and fun, but Jacqueline produced a really great video which you can watch here:

May the 4th…

Three years ago, on May the 4th 2015, I started working at Autodesk aka the Dark Side. Still remember mentioning this to my boss.. and his face was just saying: WTF is she talking about? Did I hire a crazy person? 😀 
As you can imagine, I just thought: OMG he doesn’t know it’s the Star Wars Day? And he doesn’t even know we are the Dark Side?…
Well I’m proud to say that now, three years later, not only he, but also our whole team is perfectly aware and informed about such important facts and we even got two further cool Jedis aka team members – Holger and Frederic, this one’s on you!

What should I say – it’s been a blast working for this great company and especially being a part of the most awesome team here! I still remember my first Autodesk University in Las Vegas back in 2015 – I was overwhelmed not only by the size of this event and all the nerds I met there, but also by the fact that there was a bunch of storm troopers running around the whole time – now try to top that!

It’s been a blast ever since and I’m looking forward to the next adventures with Autodesk!

P.S. I’ve been struggling with myself whether to keep this blog alive or not, as I know I abandoned it in the last years due to the fact I’m blogging for Autodesk as well. But still, it is my playground and despite my other projects and platforms I’m active on, BIM me UP! is a part of me and I decided to keep it alive as an English-only blog. Of course I’ll keep blogging in German on the official Autodesk BIM Blog!
