AutoCad Architecture…. (Not Revit related)

I am helping out at a firm that uses ACA 2010. nausea1

So I am dusting off my cobwebs to try and remember tools that I thought I wouldn’t have to try and remember again.

This won’t become an ACA blog….I promise…but I switched on ACA this morning to see that my ribbon tabs were not displaying.

So on my quick search on AUGI, I found a quick solution:

Solution by “cadstorm” :

“To fix this, type 'cui' to open the 'Customize User Interface' window.
Make sure you are on the customize tab (should be default)
Make sure the top left window is expanded (the Customizations in All Files window)
Scroll to the very top and right-click 'ACA'
Then select 'Reset ACA.CUIX'
Click 'Continue' on the pop up window.
Then I had to close and re-open AutoCAD for the ribbon to reappear.”

……..funny, I have never had to worry about this in Revit.

Do wishes come true???

Well…..I know for a fact that in Revit they do.

I have been very excited on previous releases to see wishes I have requested, added to the Revit program.

If you have a logical wish for the developers to consider, log into AUGI and submit your wish.

A snip from the AUGI mail received….

It is time to vote!

AUGI Members, it is time once again to let Autodesk know what you would like to see in future releases of AutoCAD and Revit Architecture. Each year, AUGI members submit suggestions to improve their beloved software. AUGI volunteer experts then take these wishes, review them, clarify them, and if needed, reach out to the submitter for clarification to get them ready for you. Then we develop a ballot and hand it over to you! This time around there are 85 wishes for AutoCAD and 65 for Revit Architecture.

Does your vote matter?  YES IT DOES.”

There is also a you tube movie by Shaan Hurley showing wishes that have come true.

Wishes Come true

2011 ... par où commencer

Cette entrée est exclusivement pour tout le monde à l'île Maurice ....
Premièrement / / S'il vous plaît excuser mon français ....
Wow, un autre cycle Autodesk a eu lieu. J'ai cessé de travailler en années, mais plutôt dans les versions d'Autodesk. Alors qui me met dans l'année 2011.
Au lieu de les divagations d'habitude des nouvelles fonctionnalités des suites fantastiques Revit pour leur communiqué de 2011, j'ai compilé une liste des meilleurs blogs que j'ai trouvé détaillant toutes les dernières fonctionnalités.
Pour les utilisateurs Revit plus âgés, je pourrais facilement comparer ceci à l'excitation que j'ai eu quand Revit 7.1 a été libéré. Pour les partisans encore plus vieux Autodesk, c'est le saut à partir d'AutoCAD v10 à v 12, voire 2000, V10.
Blogs à lire pour les caractéristiques Revit plus tard:

  • David Light a été dès le départ avec son revit.blogspot blog, bien David et je partage la passion Revit même, bien qu'il ait passé beaucoup temps plus de documenter la plupart des nouvelles fonctionnalités. Si vous n'avez pas fait partie blog de David, de votre café du matin, lire, assurez-vous de l'ajouter.
  • Gregory Arkin de la Floride, USA (bimboom.blogspot) ont également affiché la liste complète des nouveautés dans Revit Architecture2011
  •  À l'intérieur de l'usine a posté un lien de choses sur tous les nouveaux produits dévoilés Revit, relie aussi à un blog de David.
  • Comme toujours Steve Stafford fournit un aperçu sans fin dans le monde de Revit sur son blog qui est devenu un rituel quotidien à la compréhension de tout ce qui est Revit pour moi sur une base quotidienne. Assurez-vous de lire ce post
  • Dans leur quête de publier Mastering Revit 2011 n'oubliez pas de consulter le blog où vous êtes sûr de trouver des infos relatives à Revit et les dernières tendances de la technologie (ainsi que cool apps Apple et les produits Phil Read)
    Enfin pour mon premier véritable (en l'an 2011 ... AutoDesk outre appelé AD2011), s'assurer de lire le AUGI magazine EDGE. Il s'agit d'une véritable ressource de l'information et je tiens à remercier Steve Stafford de me faire paraître plus intelligent que je suis avec sa patience et la prouesse éditoriale, avec l'article que j'ai présenté. (Cheers Steve, soit 2 bières que je vous dois maintenant)
    Pour ceux qui sont sur abonnement .... Profitez de 2011 Revit voyage!

2011 … where to start

Wow, another Autodesk cycle has occurred. I have stopped working in years but rather in Autodesk releases. So that puts me in the year 2011.

Instead of the usual ramblings of the new features of the fantastic Revit Suites for their 2011 release, I have compiled a list of the best blogs I have found detailing all of the latest features.

For the older Revit users, I could easily compare this to the excitement I had when Revit 7.1 was released. For even older Autodesk supporters, this is the jump from AutoCad v10 to v 12 or even 2000 from v10.

Blogs to read for the latest Revit features:

  • David Light was first off the bat with his blog revit.blogspot, clearly David and I share the same Revit passion, although he spent A LOT more time documenting most of the new features. If you have not made David’s blog part of your morning coffee read, be sure to add it.
  • Gregory Arkin from Florida, USA (bimboom.blogspot) also posted the full list of what’s new in Revit Architecture2011
  • Inside the factory posted a great link about all of the new unveiled Revit products, also linking to David’s blog.
  • As always Steve Stafford provides an unending insight into the world of Revit on his blog which has become a daily ritual to the insight of everything that is Revit for me on a daily basis. Be sure to read this post

In their quest to publish Mastering Revit 2011 be sure to check out Phil Read’s blog where you are sure to find info relating to Revit and the latest technology trends (as well as cool Apple apps and products)

Lastly for my first real post (in the AutoDesk year 2011…furthermore known as AD2011) be sure to read the AUGI-EDGE magazine. This is a real resource of information and I would like to thank Steve Stafford for making me seem more intelligent than I am with his patience and editorial prowess, with the article I submitted. (Cheers Steve, that’s 2 beers I owe you now)

To everyone that is on subscription….enjoy the Revit 2011 journey!!!
