NEN2580 Reportservice

One of the projects vdPConsulting has been working on – as a subcontractor – is the NEN2580 Reportservice.

The system consists of a C# application in Autodesk Revit that can classify projects and create a NEN2580 compatible report using a webservice.

For more details take a look here at the NEN website ( in Dutch ),

The YuZu Business Case on Autodesk University 2012

At Picard Innovations, we develop software applications to improve the use of precision tools in construction development. Our breakthrough application is called YuZu; smart software that captures existing measurement conditions into the AutoCAD and Revit environment. Instantly and easy, using Bluetooth. It allows you to draw while you measure. And YuZu is not just more accurate, but also 50% more time effective. It’s the new measure in drawing.

Please watch the explanation of our business case on Autodesk University 2012

AU Virtual 2012: Speaker Confirmation

Congratulations! The following class proposal(s) for AU Virtual 2012 have been accepted:

Class ID: CP5915-V
Class Title: Take your Building Surveying to the Next Level by Capturing Measurements On-Site Directly into Autodesk® Revit® Architecture
Class Type: Virtual

Class Description:
Real estate owners need to have accurate building measurements to calculate lease-holder partitioning of costs. Building project managers have the need to take control measurements before the prefab concrete beams or windows arrive at the building site. In both and many other cases, the building surveyor comes to the rescue, using a measuring tape and paper drawings. What if he could capture the measurements on-site using an infrared measuring device and transfer them directly into Autodesk® Revit® on a tablet PC? This class gives you background information about the business case and shows a solution that uses a building surveyor application in Revit Architecture. The application also available in AutoCAD®.

I’m going to present a virtual class at Autodesk University. After presenting in Las Vegas in 2004 and 2007, I’m going virtual this year.
