What is the agenda?

Model Management - Maintaining a healthy model by Kevin Fielding of Sheppard Robson

To BIM authors using Revit, the health of the model is critical to the delivery of contract documents, downtime is expensive. This session will explore processes and techniques for maintaining the health and performance of the Revit model, and do and don't on projects.

BIM & Smart Cities, just more buzzwords by Alistair Kell, BDP

Autodesk University 2016 - Revit 2018 Roadmap and Project Quantum, among others by Rob Clark, Consultant for Excitech

Autodesk University was the best yet. Autodesk have released a lot of information into the industry on direction and the "what's next", including a published Roadmap for Autodesk Revit, and an exciting new "next generation BIM authoring system" called Quantum, which we are only just starting to learn about. This presentation will summarise what we found out at the event

The Ever Popular Revit Tips and Tricks

No MRUG would be complete without them!

Target Audience

This meeting is aimed at Autodesk Revit technical staff whom wish to learn more about how others use the Revit software as the core design product in real world projects. The presentations however are not just limited to talking about the Revit product, and others will be discussed where applicable to Revit users in workflow.

The presenters will assume you have used and understand Autodesk Revit to a reasonable level. If you have not, there is still benefit but you may find some elements a challenge to understand. It is for people that wish to network with users of the software.

Topics of project management, standardisation and industry process, such as BIM are discussed in the context of technical delivery

Registration Information and Form

MRUG operates a registration process that tries to ensure that we can accommodate everybody that wishes to attend. Previously the event has reached capaicity meaning people cannot register places, and then on the evening many do not turn up. While more complicated, we hope our attendees will understand that it has become necessary to make the group fair and sustainable for our committee members whom are volunteers, our backers and of course to those that attend. A lot of work goes into putting these small groups together.

Rules are as follows;

1 Week Invite Only Period For Regulars and Backers An invite list will be sent out before general registration for regular attendees (defined as having registered for at least 2 out of the last 5 meetings. This will become "attended" in the future) and for supporters. If you qualify for this you will have one week to register, and are guaranteed a place (subject to capacity). Only those who receive a registration invite email will be able to participate. After this time, registration will be open to everybody.

Airline Style Check In You will be required on the Monday or Tuesday of the week of the meeting to “check in”. This is done by simply replying to the check in request email that will be sent at this time. Therefore it is important that you check your email address when entering. This will generate your joining details. If you do not check in by Wednesday morning, you risk losing your place to somebody on the waiting list. This is very much like booking a flight and then checking in on-line before the flight. This is to reduce the drop out list and free up spaces for waiting list people. Check in will remain open as long as places remain.

One No Show, one Suspension Regardless of reason, if you register and check in and do not turn up, you will be unable to attend the next meeting. After this, you will be considered only within the “General Registration”, and not as a previous attendee until you have attended two more meetings.

Two People From A Department within a Company Moving forward the group will only allow two people from any single department within an organisation. Or two from the company total were it is single discipline.

MRUG is free to attend. Everybody must register including previous attendees. First come, first served. Capacity of this event is 70. AEC organisations only.

Please fill out the form below to register your place for the meeting. All details for this meeting are listed above

Future Meeting Notification and News Periodically the committee would like to send you information including notifications of the next meeting. Attendees List In order to promote the group, we will add your name to the attendees list for this meeting and put in on the website. You can opt out of either of these this if you like.

Please note, registration is currently only open for regular attendees. Normal registration will open Wednesday 25th of January 2017
