Looking Forward to Autodesk University 2009

I'll be back at Autodesk University again this year. At this point, I've lost track of how many of these events I've attended other than the fact that I've been to ALL of them.

I'll be teaching two Revit courses and three AutoCAD classes this year. The Revit classes should be quite interesting:

Collaborating Across Disciplines with Revit Architecture, MEP, and Structure
Tuesday, December 1, 8:00am-9:30am (course: AB104-3)
Class Description: Are you ready to take the next step and use building information modeling to share data across the entire design team? The need for sharing data across design disciplines has become increasingly critical. In this class, we’ll look at how the Revit platform facilitates collaboration and coordination among architects and engineers. You’ll learn how to link project files between Revit Architecture, Revit Structure, and Revit MEP, coordinate work between disciplines, identify and correct interferences, and use Revit’s revision tracking to keep track of changes.

Raising the Roof - Creating Roofs in Revit
Thursday, December 3, 5:00pm-6:30pm (course AB322-1)
Class Description: Roofs are one of the most complex architectural elements to model, but with Revit you can create just about any type of roof. This class will explore the best methods for creating various types of roofs using all the tools in Revit. We’ll look at complex roofs with varying pitch, offset plate heights, ridge and valley control, dormers, flat roofs, and more. You’ll also learn how to create roofs with varying thickness using shape editing tools. Whether you design residential or commercial buildings, you’ll learn new techniques you can immediate put to use in Revit.

I hope you'll join me at AU. To learn more, please visit the Autodesk University website.
