    What is pyRevit you ask?

    “pyRevit (with lowercase py) is a Rapid Application Prototyping (RAD) environment for Autodesk Revit®. It helps you quickly sketch out your automation and addon ideas, in whichever language that you are most comfortable with, inside the Revit environment and using its APIs. It also ships with an extensive set of powerful tools that showcase its capabilities as a development environment. Download and install pyRevit, launch Revit, and note the new pyRevit tab that includes these tools. pyRevit also ships with a handy CLI utility for customized configuration and deployment of your tools, and a telemetry server to monitor pyRevit usage across your teams.”


    What is Rhino.Inside.Revit?

    “Rhino.Inside® is an open source Rhino WIP project which allows Rhino and Grasshopper to run inside other 64-bit Windows applications such as Revit.

    It is now possible to:

    Start Rhino and Grasshopper as an add-in to other applications.
    Drive the host application with Grasshopper definitions.
    Use the host’s APIs in a Grasshopper and Rhino plug-in.
    Use Rhino’s APIs in the host’s plug-ins.
    Create native objects in the host application with Rhino and Grasshopper.”

BiM execution Plans & deep dives

This is a tremendous resource; will make sure our Architecture students at CCAE & the CE students at UCC - iTinAEC would benfit greatly from the deep insight sharing. Useful and intertaining at the same time. Thanks --Maroon

The BIMosphere needs this

Thanks for your work. I listen regularly, and on occasion have also managed to convinced my 10 year old to listen with me by telling her that Minecraft can also be a BIM tool.
