Scheduled Rotation

This is not a little known secret or a new feature in Revit, but did you know you can rotate a schedule? I've never had the need to do it, so I've never even thought about it.  The only application I could think of where this would be useful is for a revision schedule on a sheet titleblock/border.  Simply click on the schedule, and in the options bar, select 90° clockwise or 90° counterclockwise.

What to view a BIM model on your iPhone or iPad?  Well, there's an app for that!  Check out goBIM.  Looks like it currently supports Revit 2010 & 2011 and Rhino.  I haven't test it out because the only Apple product I own is a three year old iPod.  If you've had any experience with this application, please leave a comment  below.


Is anyone still reading this blog? I just realized I haven't posted anything since December 2009!  My apologies.  I've been too busy I guess with family, a new job, and life in general.  I think those are good enough excuses, don't you?.  Since my last posting I've had a slight career change.  I am now working for a company called HNTB as a BIM Technical Specialist.  I am part of a small team responsible for company wide BIM (mainly Revit) training, support and implementation as well as R&D of new BIM technologies.  It has been quite an adjustment transitioning from the design/production side of the business into more of a support role, but I enjoy it. Anyway, I'm going to make an effort to post to this blog more frequently now so stay tuned.
