I’ve had the pleasure and honour of being hosted by no less than Marcello Sgambelluri himself in episode 06 of his Simply Complex podcast series, this week! If you have never heard it, I strongly suggest you check it out. His chat with Adam Sopko is particularly interesting: you can find it here.
I really hope you’ll enjoy it: I certainly enjoyed recording it.
If you’re curious to get references of the things we talked about, here’s some.
- While we were talking, Marcello was surfing the website of the architectural studio I currently work for. It is this one. Specifically, the Moscow project he referred to is this one and the Military Memorial project I referred to is this one.
- Other two military monuments whose intervention was bid for, requiring BIM, are showcased below.
- The Autodesk University Class about hotels can be found here: it talks about automation for interior design, using Dynamo and a couple of tricks. It’s me and my BIM manager talking. We had fun.
- BILT Asia is going to be in Singapore between March 30th and April 1st. The website of the event is here. As I said on the podcast, me and my BIM manager will be giving three classes there:
- How To Bake Your Model: A Collaborative BIM Cooking Class, on Friday 31st, session 2.3 (13:45 – 14:30);
- Information modelling for Interior Design – The Forgotten Discipline, also on Friday 31st, session 2.5 (17:00 – 17:45).
Friday 31st is going to be quite intense indeed.
- Also, we will play an encore of That Day Revit Came Into Our Life: Implementation Best Practices for Small Offices (Thursday 30th, session 1.5, 17:00 – 17:45). Some of you already saw some part of it in Vegas at AU but it’s going to be slightly expanded, since we have a little more time and we don’t like to repeat ourselves.
- Flux.io is this little guy, shouldn’t you know it already, and we are both crazy about it. The above mentioned class about hotels involves Flux and I wrote about it here, here and here. If you’re interested in the topic and you happen to come to BILT Singapore, you might want to check out the class “25 Flux/Dynamo Scripts for Everyday Use” by Dominic Martens (session 1.4): it looks promising.
Also, the Site Extractor we talked about is a collateral project, you can find it in the Lab section of their website, it’s amazing and from what I hear it’s about to get even better. Check it out.
- Enscape is this other little guy and is just as amazing. I wrote about it here some time ago and meanwhile it got even better. It provides you with a seamless workflow between your Revit model and a real time rendering engine empowering you with one of the best design review tools currently on the market. It’s effortless. We promise.
- Stingray is this Autodesk tool and Marcello wrote about it here. You also can see his AT-ST moving here. We are now eagerly waiting for that AT-AT to start moving around, although not in our backyards please. Meanwhile, if you want to download one of your own, there’s a very nice Revit model of an AT-AT to be found here.
- The educational project I was referring to is this one. I am especially proud of my first class and I’ll be writing about them soon: they were an amazing group and their work was amazing.
- Another educational project I was involved in, and I failed to mention, was this one. They are currently carrying out the second edition, but the first class was protagonist of a very nice video made by Autodesk.
- The Italian underground BIM movement already met a bunch of times and Marcello dug up a picture of people drinking beer so that was probably us.
- Last but not least, the new Mass Effect is called Andromeda and will come out March 21st. I’ll probably be busy preparing BILT. Damn.
