Program Management Integrated with BIM

The August 2011 meeting of the New York City Revit Users Group featured a presentation by Greg Schleusner of the firm-wide BIM leadership team at HOK. Greg demonstrates how the use of BIM-based program management tools such as dRofus can support and improve the project delivery process. The discussion focuses on the benefits of adequately documenting program requirements and then comparing those to an evolving design model.

NOTE: The featured presentation starts at about 12:00 into the recording.

Revit 2012 – missing thumbnails


Have you had issues where your Revit 2012 thumbnails have disappeared, even though Windows is set to display them?

This often happens after uninstalling older versions of Revit, in particularly Revit 2010. Therefore to resolve this, open up a command promote & copy & paste this line into the command line.

regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Revit Architecture 2012\Program\Revit.Thumbnail.dll"

You will need to be a administrator to do this, but after you have done this, reboot your machine & you should find thumbnails will return.
