The Navisworks of BIM websites

I'm sure you're all familiar with Autodesk Navisworks right, the software to collaborate all of your 3d models, despite original file format. Well now there's a website seeking to do the same thing, sort of. Come one come all, don't worry about your BIM affiliation, all are welcome, let the dialog begin...

Currently, each different software has its own user group or forums to allow for dialog about procedures and methods of importing and exporting, however, the main problem is not between like software’s but the interconnectivity amongst different software’s. This site is designed as a software neutral site, where there is no emphasis on any one specific software.

Cool new way to learn Revit! Check it out

"Did you know that the experts are taught to demo without showing the software's flaws. A skillful demo-er will skim over or Jedi-mind-trick “that’s not the tool you’re looking for” the difficult questions and issues prevalent in a piece of software.

If so, I’m not saying you won’t see that during these hours, sometimes you will. The Rockstar Hour is not that type of Demo, it’s a shared learning experience. Often when explaining a difficult topic / tool the instructor takes the time to struggle with the software, just like you. You’ll think, you’ll laugh, you may even learn something. If nothing else, at least Revit’s on your screen, who’s to say it’s not you working?"


Here's the link to the Revit Rock Star Hour, Hey I'm going to sign up!
