After 14 days of voting, the official results of the AUGI Board of Directors Year end Election are available. Each of candidates were considered and voted on individually.

Please join all of AUGI in welcoming him to the AUGI board.

Departing Members:

Now that the elections are complete, we bid farewell to a long-term board member, Mark Kiker and an international member, Dario Passariello. We wish them both well and hope that they stay connected in some way to AUGI.

Mark Kiker has served for 6 years on the Board and served as president 2008 – 2010.  Mark was instrumental in many of the initiatives over the six years he served, but mostly made great strides in governance, and sales/marketing.

He has served in some way in almost all of AUGI including International development, BLAUGI, Governance, Autodesk University and CAD Camp development. We are glad that he served, worked and became a friend to all the board members and many of you. He will be greatly missed.

Dario Passariello has served for 2 years on the Board. Dario has assisted AUGI greatly in areas of Social Media and Communications and has helped AUGI make some valuable connections to the Media and Entertainment industry focusing on 3ds MAX and MAX Design.

Reading the .slog file

Forum:  Revit Architecture - General

Posted:  January 6, 2010

Is there any way to find out from the .slog if someone accidentally used "select all instances" then deleted items? I'm trying to figure out how all dimensions disappeared so that it doesn't happen again. The .slog file is a bunch of programmer jibberish. :P

We are trying to make a keyplan for a building we are working on, and am running into a problem.

Importing dwg into a Revit RCP

Forum:  Revit Architecture - General

Posted:  January 6, 2010

When I link a dwg file that I get from a MEP consultant I can't get it to show up in my RCP, it only comes in at the floor plan. Is there a way to get it to show up in the RCP without exploding it?

Navisworks vs Solibri

Thoughts anyone. I just got my temp license to use Solibri and will start playing with that. From what I have seen though, it looks fairly nice, a little less complex interface (although more setup required for rules) then that of Navisworks. But about working in it, and time to review and see...

What Matters Now - Give Generously

In this economy, we are all looking for game changers.  A way to focus energy and create something that is more than simply the sum of the parts. Seth Godin has accomplished this in a series of one-page essays contributed by a remarkable group of more than 70 people which comprise the free ebook called What Matters Now.


In the intro to the ebook, Seth talks about changing the goal from collecting to one of giving. Rather than focusing your efforts on ensuring that you get your fair share. Try giving more than your share... you'll find that you'll receive far more in return than your share cost you.

This type of thinking is well known to us.  It is what makes AUGI such a unique community. I know many contributors in the AUGI community that have always embraced this concept and demonstrated it through action.  Thanks to all of them!
