EDIT Thanks for all the support!
Here it is – my little collection of AU2012 goodies. Images, videos, cool quotes (and don’t forget the tweets!) – everything from the last couple of weeks that I thought was worth posting is here. Enjoy!
To open up to as large an audience as possible, there’s no NDA – Autodesk Labs is wide-open to the public

AU Virtual 2012
Most of my experience with AU2012 was either through Virtual or Twitter. Having viewed a few sessions, here are some things I found interesting:

Revit 2014 features discussed
I also attended the AEC Futures session today to give us a preview of what’s coming in Revit 2014. Unfortunately we are under NDA for that, so I’ll not be giving anything away. I eagerly await the forthcoming release.

Looks interesting… some more info at:
BIMopedia Online – Benjamin Malone
Models can be uploaded from Revit, Rhino, ArchiCAD you name it – with synchornised results far more accurate than what we are acheiving at the moment. We have been promised a fully interoperable and extremely accurate product to product exchange. Sounds very exciting, and about time too. This promises to be the first truly open BIM platform…
Well to my surprise I get a email from one of my Revit users asking why objects are not showing up!
Didn’t think this would happen with Revit! (how naive!).
So we will now evaluate a new pdf driver!
Anyone else ever had this issue with pdf’s?
We are testing a couple projects using Revit Server and have had a couple error messages stating that “This Operation could not be Completed”, after asking around at AU I found out that there appears to be a known issue between Riverbed and Revit Server (wish I had known about it earlier…). anyway apparently the guys at Riverbed are working on a solution, in the mean time I have to look for a work around!
