    This is great advice, too, for the two can actually work together in a meaningful way. While you can import Sketchup models into Revit as a basis of starting work, you can't really use Sketchup...

    Well so no, Revit's built-in GUIDs can't be mucked with. Revit assigns them, and changes them, and there isn't a lot you can do there about it without causing other problems (as far as I know).

    I hurt my right wrist from too many hours of AutoCAD and Photoshop when I was young due to a bad, unergonomic digitizer-style puck mouse.

    It's never really gotten better. I can use a mouse for...

    I have Families from like Revit 5.1 that still probably work. What happens is that certain parameters and edits aren't possible, because the family was made before the feature or template allowed for...

    Perfect. Thanks for the head's up, I didn't know! Will give it a chance when I can find the time.

    Also it's just awesome how responsive y'all have been to date. Way to do things right!

    You can setup a keyboard shortcut for this! Mine is 'WW'. Auto-closes all hidden windows in the background. It's also handy when you've been opening lots of Families while still having the project...

    Hey! Quick question: any chance to get another 30-day trial of the new version?

    I only ask because I could never get the older version working on my MacBookPro under BootCamp. Loved how Enscape...

    Oh yeah totally; I know I'm somewhat in the minority here, but we spend so much time in the Family Editor that any improvements there are huge for us!

    The Global Parameters thing could be really interesting for our work if it's what I think it is. I haven't had much chance to play with it just yet.

    I don't know about Vray, but I do know that since we switched to GPU-based rendering engines, the bang-for-the-buck is insane.

    So we use Octane Render and Blender's Cycles, depending on the...

    No, Vray is a rendering engine, not a game engine.

    Rendering Engine = produces static images or animations (one image at a time), but of really high quality and accuracy.

    Nothing 'breaks' and Revit runs fine. It's just that half the UI is too small to click on efficiently.

    The Ribbon scales OK; Type Selector Text is on the small side, the 'R' logo menu is tiny, and...

    I've been using Revit on a 'Retina' 2560 x 1600 display, and frankly, it SUCKS. Seriously thinking of switching it to a lower resolution whenever I'm working in Revit.

    Yeah, because the managers don't really understand CAD to begin with, they think it's all the same.
