Inaugural Revit Technology Conference 2011 in the US

The inaugural US Revit Technology Conference, known as RTC for short, was held in the Huntington Beach area of Los Angeles a few weeks ago. The RTC actually originated in Australia in 2005 as an expanded Revit user group meeting, and has grown into a full-fledged conference that continues to be held annually in Australia. The RTC 2011 event in Los Angeles attracted about 300 attendees and several exhibitors. This article provides an overview of the RTC and describes in detail some of the key sessions that were presented, including the keynote address by Autodesk CEO Carl Bass and an inside look at Revit by one of its earliest developers.

  1. “I have to say that after spending 12 hours attempting to somehow remember what I’m doing in Autocad.” This leads anyone to believe that you have had some Autocad training. “I really truly believe(sp) that moving to a non object based Computer Tool like 2D CAD was one of the worst things our industry ever did.” Been doing it since the 70’s. Worked fine and is still working fine. “Working in 2D CAD has, I think, also fostered a notion of ‘we don’t really think about what is going on’ a good set of shop drawings in the hands of a competent person (not a newbie out of college, with the greatest computer software program) is and will be what the end fabricator always uses. Revit gets you close, but architects do not know everything, and much of the designing is left to subs.
