A few words on 3D engines and InterOp from WorldCAD Access:
“For instance, InterOp now directly translates from competitor Parasolid, non-competitor SolidWorks (which uses Parasolid — it’s a complicated relationship), competitor Siemens NX, and non-competitor Catia V6; it reads and writes Dassault’s 3DXML with tesselation. It extracts graphical data from CAD programs like Solidworks, and then display it — although it is not clear to me what this last item means.
OK, now I get it. “Graphical data” means that the imported 3D model looks just like in the originating CAD system, completed with shading, rectangular boxes at the ends of leaders, arrowheads, and so on.”

From Rob Snyder’s blog:
“Models are different from drawings in an essential way. A model represents an environmental totality. No locations are discarded and none can be discarded. Therefore authorship can no longer be confined to a finite number of directive visual statements representing a finite number of selected locations that are representative of a totality. In a model, totality is explicit instead of implicit. Explicit totality has profound effect on both authors and viewers, and we need to explore it. “

Nice post over at revitstructureblog. A couple of highlights:
When working with Radial grids you will typically find a couple of problems. The first issue you will find is that the grids will not show on new levels. This is because the grids need to be elevated to cut through the levels and a grid is not shown unless a view is perpendicular to the grid as shown in the image below.
A new feature of Revit 2013 is the ability to create a continuous grid line with the same reference called a multi-segment grid. The grid is simply drawn with a series of lines and arcs and then when the sketch is finished the grid is created. It is worth noting that the grid cannot be controlled with a Scope Box (Covered Below).
There is plenty of information available about Component Stairs in Revit 2013. I thought I would collect some of the better resources and post them here.
This first link is a little bit outside-the-square, but it relates to teaching a class of people who don’t know how Revit 2013 stairs work. Check it out:

How do all the 2013 Stair families relate to each other?

If you still can’t make a stair that you like, make one in-place 😉

I have been viewing some of the webcasts from the Collaborative BIM Series. Here is a list of those currently available on demand:
I found this diagram from session 3 (BIM – Compatibility & Collaboration) quite interesting:

Thanks to Phil Read for sharing a nice little free add-in that basically Zooms to the selected object. It is called ZoomToAwesome.

Combine this with COINS Auto Section Box, and some other tricks like selecting an element from a Schedule, and you should be able to find any element in your model.
