Vasari is now live on The Labs!!! (for Revit Designers & Wannabe's Alike)

Full Revit it's not but that's the whole point!!!

Designers who haven't yet gotten on the BIM train can get a start with Vasari and get to a place where SketchUp is no longer used (or used as much), since as a BIM tool SKP is; well... a tool.

Download Project Vasari for yourself from the photo at left!!!
If you'd like a technology review look at D Light's blog posting Here.

If you'd like to see a teaser go to this post from a few days ago (well a few days ago from the time of this post)!!!

Need some Video Tutorials (in addition to the ones in the tech preview? Click Me!!!

Enjoy, now get to Designing!!!

1st Pricing™ Window & Door Toolkit for Revit®

If you are interested in finding out more on how or if you can track projected pricing of real world components, beyond estimates, then click the image (left).

Got Plugin? Although their site only notes a download for Revit 2010, in most of the documentation, if you click the image (left) you will be brought to a page to download their plugin for EITHER 2010 or 2011 (at the time of this posting).

As they say in an old press release: "...With the click of a button, the 1st Pricing technology accesses an internet portal and pulls comparison pricing of multiple brands to fill out a detailed bill of materials with all related content on demand...." There is a new press release for 2011 Right Here!!!

Did I mention these are free???!!! Well, they are so don't be upset if: "...Today, the Company is focused on building materials for residential construction but plans to add commercial building products. In the near future, 1st Pricing expects to provide pricing on virtually every building product used in residential construction while bridging the gap for subcontractors by including labor quotes...."

Something is better than nothing perhaps...
