Hi Scott, I just moved to a new firm and I wanted to install on my XP64 PC 2D/3D ShareNow. I have installed AutoCAD 2009, Revit Architecture and MEP 64 bit 2009 and 2010 and ADR 2010. Internet explorer 7. Oh surprise I couldnt install Sharenow neither for ADR nor for AC and RAC. Do you have the old zip file you could send me prior to 2011 update? my emal ID (new) kal.houhou@smithgroup.com or thru Typad. Thanks in advance. Kal

Mainaining the Sheet Index is the reponsabiity of the Architects (by contract); so in this mean we would like to be able to maintain a bi-directional link with the External sheets from the consultants (especially the non-revit consultants; obviously) What are the format we are getting from them? Excel in majority and PDF/DWF for some, we could ultimately aske them to send their sheet index only in Excel if we have insurance that we would have a bi-directional integration into RAC. Meta-data: we are creating key schedules to work around to be able to manage submission dates/packages comments etc...so yes we need to include meta data as shared parameters to the entire Sheet Index (we prefer this terminology) List a list where index intend to be more inclusive with additional information like revisions, milestone dates, package dates etc...Thanks for sharing Erik.

Hi Erik and all, This is a nice discussion indeed! In summary I like most of the ideas posted especially Tim and Aaron in his comment he touched a point that several "managers" are asking for quite a while, more control and better Quality Control, what make us move from CAD to BIM is a better control over our projects, so the more flags we can get the better we can act at early stage. The modeless dialogue box for properties become a necessity with more interaction between the elements/objects/families in in a particular view. We know from other Autodesk Pacakages the impact on computer resources of a modeless box especially with Revit Platform due to its nature (database), may be the factory should find a way to minimize this impact, now must of us (at least in the architectural field) moved to a 64 bits firms Box so we can manage better memory access. And we have to sympathize with the rest of 32 bits users (the majority)! in summary we should have it as a floating palette like in dead cad for the layer manager properties with an extension of flags (question marks or alert marks) that something is wrong in the element/object/massing/families...Thanks for listening Erik.

Yes the correct website URL is: http://tineye.com/ with the 3w as a prefix you go to a nice website though that has nothing to do with our matter!

Wow that's very impressive, I wonder how it would be on larger master plan in 3D...city scapes. We can tell you guys are on the right track: Showcase, Newport, Dragonfly, etc...Keep it up and spread your magic Deskers!
