News from RTC Europe 2016 ... halfway done
What about this fantastic opportunity to improve our knowledge? They have been fabulous days where learning happens at breakneck speed thanks to the numerous interactions between many and varied users of Revit Technology. Thanks to all the participants for sharing knowledge.
Come to me often thought:
“We need others to complement and develop our own expertise. This collective character of knowledge does not mean that individuals don’t count. In fact, the best communities welcome strong personalities and encourage disagreements and debates. Controversy is part of what makes a community vital, effective, and productive.” ― Etienne Wenger, Cultivating Communities of Practice: A Guide to Managing Knowledge
Let me try to give you an idea of RTC Europe 2016...
The majority of sessions have been really interesting and varied. I'll try to talk about them in more detail in a later post.
Keynote Address about "Printing Architecture - Towards a Digital Building" was a fantastic and showed us how Information technology can become a crucial driver of architectonic evolution. The research at the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Digital Fabrication, that aims to revolutionize architecture through the seamless combination of digital technologies and physical building processes, was well presented and explored. The talk gave an outlook to ground-breaking technologies for tomorrow’s construction.
To give some examples of inspiring sessions I will speak, for now, only on two of them. One was Joe Banks "Collaboration Tools and Methods Comparison". I loved the way he made the presentation and its contents. Along a fun and engaging presentation he showed the options that are available and guided us through the pros and cons of everything out there now. It also presented proposals on what could and should be doing in the future. Some of you have made the very interesting debate.
I loved as well Margarida Barbosa session about "Optimising Construction Monitoring Processes with Reality Capture". She shared with us her knowledge and experience about the optimisation of Construction Monitoring Processes by showing case studies where Point Clouds and Sensors were used. She also talked about workflows involving Data Acquisition through fixed cameras, UAVs, and Sensors, as well as the use of Pix4d, Revit and Navisworks software.
A word about the RTC team that organized the event in a very professional way, thank you for the wonderful work.
And finally a word about the AUGI and the fantastic support as GLOBAL GOLD SPONSOR of this event. It was very nice to have the opportunity to review and get along with many members of this fabulous community that includes users of various Autodesk software.
