    Smile Revit Calendar Family and how to..

    Hi everyone! A few weeks ago I was a little bit bored and tried to make a fun and most probably a useless family.

    As I'm just starting to blog in English at redhotbim.com (doing it for a while in Turkish) I've thought it would be nice to give away a fun family and a little bit of explanation.

    Hope you enjoy it!

    Thanks guys! Warned you it was useless! I only have one in the starting view (sheet)

    @joseph did it on my own time.. I'm that boring. Damn Revit!
    @Robin. You can use it in an evil or good way right now Put a Comments label in it, adjust a date and place it on views in a work shared environment saying..
    Good: "Hey don't forget the party!"
    Evil: "Yes! That deadline was yesterday!"

    Yes, for Evil. I have also been thinking about doing some kind of project planning in revit.

    For example if you make "Comment Objects" that a project manager or lead designer, with very little revit experience, can place on drawings and fill in with date and actions they can be scheduled. This gives a clear overview of what needs to be done, by whom, when and if actions have been completed or not.
    It would be very useful to have Date and Time available as parameters in revit so that actions approaching deadlines could be shown in ever brighter colours as the moment of death or glory approaches...

    Damn, now that this thing turns out to be useful after all, I need to start using it for something...

    The deadline thing is very cool too and by reading your post, something you learned a lot from as well, the Julian Day thing for example (I new about the day counter thing, did not know what it was called)

    Did not really have time to dig into the 2 families to see whats going on in the background, but i will when I have some time.

    I love the fact that people come up with stuff that is seemingly unrelated to construction and/or BIM and build it in REVIT and make it work, thinking out of the box.
