Thank you for introducing me to VTT, they have developed some pretty useful tools!

I believe there is a huge opportunity in Health Care for AR. I am currently getting approval to be on a committee for the VRARA that looks at AR in Health Care. There are a lot of applications yet to be discovered, I would love to bring this into the world of Architecture.

Check them out http://www.thevrara.com/

I haven't done it but one of the leaders in this area is in Northern Europe - Finland. The state research agency VTT has had a program on this stuff for well over a decade and they have done many different applications and demos and have some partnerships with industry there.

WORKFLOW & COLLABORATION / Re: Worksets
« Last post by kirk.stalkie on March 22, 2017, 09:29:06 am »
Having a script is a great way to insure consistency! Do you use the exact same worksets on every project? Depending on the size of the building, the client and other factors, we have needed to add or remove worksets to both help with how the drawings look and for QA/QC.

STANDARDS & GUIDELINES / What sections of the NBIMS-US v3 are you using?
« Last post by skeenliside on March 22, 2017, 09:17:01 am »
Version 3 of the United States National Building Information Modeling Standard was released by the buildingSMART Alliance on July 22, 2015: https://www.nationalbimstandard.org/

Anyone using sections from this in their daily work or on a specific project?

Is anyone using IFC to move a model into an analysis tool?

WORKFLOW & COLLABORATION / Re: Worksets

we have a script that runs; In Revit 2017 they click on Collaborate and then select the Collaborate within your network in the background all the standard worksets are added. We have 13 standard worksets.
I never like a user to start a project with no worksets, way more work to move elements to the correct workset.

Make it simple and they will use it.

TOOLS & TECHNOLOGY / Re: Dynamo for QA/QC

I like the idea of using it as a monitoring tool. You can take the concept even further by creating weekly updates throughout the life of the project and at the end compile a report which can inform resource scheduling on future projects. The key would be, as with all big data tasks, determining which metrics you want to measure.

So Dynamo can be use to quantify and sort Data, through managing data and information you can monitor the project. For example, comparison of how many families or lines are created in the model week to week, if you see a spike one week you can ask why, what are the factors leading to this spike. Maybe it was intentional, maybe it was from inappropriate modeling practice. etc. Data is a powerful tool, Dynamo can help you organize and sorting that information to analyse the modeling performance. however, Dynamo is not perfect and it takes someone who is proficient to run and manage the script...not me.. :P
