Revit Users NT & Revit Argentina

It was great to catch up with some of the members of the Revit Users of Northern Territory, Gregg Jettner, Brad Hayward, John Berryman to name a few...

Whilst they tried to pick my brains on Revit questions majority were questions relating to AUGI and Autodesk University. I finally got to meet SA/NT's KarelCADs Sales Manager, Phil Sawbridge who had earlier demonstrated web-ex online demonstration - a very useful tool in training.

Later that day, I also recieved a nice note from a fellow Reviteer, Leonardo Martin Aita, who writes for Revit Argentina's blog who has a nice link video showing some Revit work... looks like I will have to brush up on my Spanish.

It has been reported that the 64 bit verions offer improved performance for memory intensive tasks such as rendering, printing, model upgrading and file importing and exporting.

If you're a 64bit operating system user and an Autodesk Subsrciption user then I'd be seriously checking this out...
