Blog Update and Pet Peeve

I am sorry that my blog has not been updated for a couple of months.  I just relocated to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma so I have been quite busy between my work and my move.

With that said, I need to mention one of my pet peeves.  That is using Detail Lines on plan views of Revit instead of using actual model elements.  I was talking to an engineer yesterday and they were complaining about architects providing them Revit models to use that have a great deal of useless detail line information.   Using “dumb” lines in Revit to represent items that should be shown as model elements (especially walls!) is a poor solution in Revit.  Don’t pretend to “do” BIM and then use detail lines like this.

Please don’t do this. 🙂  Thank you!
