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.
