Link: Create a Realtime Walkthrough of your Revit Project with Autodesk Showcase by Evan Troxel

I recently made a tutorial over on the Novedge blog on how to take your slow, chunky architectural Revit model and get it smooth and beautiful for a realtime presentation in Autodesk Showcase that'll make your client ooh and ahh. What's Showcase? Check out the tutorial to find out. I think you'll like it, and you might already have it on your computer if you have a Revit subscription through Autodesk.

Join me on a Google+ Hangout on Architectural Presentations by Evan Troxel

Novedge is hosting a Google+ Hangout on Wednesday, October 9th at 11am as part of their "How to Succeed in Architecture" series and I'll be one of the people presenting. You can RSVP on this page and join us. The whole thing will be streamed live on YouTube as well.

What it's about: 

Presenting your ideas to a prospective client is a crucial step towards gaining new business. In this episode of our Architecture Hangout Series, we will talk to three architects about their different approaches to pitching projects to new and current clients. From using an iPad, to creating renderings and 3D printed models, join us to learn how to be more effective in your interactions.

I'll be presenting some new ideas I'm exploring for upcoming presentations including augmented reality, 3d printing and realtime 3d visualization. I'm not the only presenter either - there's Marica McKeel and Emily Bello as well, so I'm hoping to pick up on their tips as well.

If you want to be more powerful and effective in your presentations, join us to learn new tips and techniques to better express your ideas and connect with your clients.


✱ Riverside Long Night of Arts and Innovation at RAM by Evan Troxel

I'll be giving three presentations at the Riverside Arts Museum (RAM) on the night of October 4th. Come say hi and maybe learn a thing or two:

The goal of the City's Long Night of Arts and Innovation (LNAI) is to showcase the city's accomplishments in the arts and sciences to its residents, build pride in the city, and encourage youth to seek careers in science, technology, engineering, and the arts.
Join us at RAM for our LNAI and Julia Morgan Opening Reception programming.

Architecture in 3D

An architectural designer from HMC Architects (that's me) will take you through the process of creating a building over the course of the evening. From hand sketch to layout, 3D model to final rendering, you will experience what happens behind the scenes in a modern architectural office.

I'll be on stage between 8pm and 10pm. I hope to see you there.
