If you are going to AU and are interested in using the API to make Revit better, start your Thursday at this class by my friends at Stantec.
BO3158 – The Business Proposition for Developing Custom Tools
- Robert Manna – Designer: Corporate BIM R&D Leader, Stantec
- david spehar – Architect, BIM Leader, Stantec
In the era of 2D CAD, many firms invested in custom tools and development staff to write and maintain them. A firm’s overall experience varied in terms of the success of this investment and just about everyone has a story to tell about being “burned” from spending money developing custom tools. However a number of market forces are coming into play that continue to drive the need to customize the Autodesk® Revit® software platform, and the question is, “Do you rely entirely on third-party software or go back down the road of customization?” This class explores the benefits of investing in the development of custom tools for your firm, and shows how Revit is really “different this time” for those who have a horror story to tell. This class looks at the tools Stantec has developed in the last year and the return on investment we have already seen. We also examine our overall strategy and approach to development.
