An all-Revit diet, for the BIM Gourmand

As the BILT events have expanded to cover more of what we need as a broad community, some people have worried that this would result in a lessening of sessions that are Revit-focused, and perhaps create gaps in the schedule for those who really want to remain focused on their primary software tool. I am here to tell you that this is not true, and that with events that have 100 or more classes across three days, there will ALWAYS be something to learn, regardless of your needs.

With that said, I have gone through and selected a set of Revit-centric classes that I thought might be of interest to attendees, which you can use as the start of your session selection process if you wish.

Day 1: Thursday:

Session Title Speaker

Exploring the peripheries of Revit content – a manufacturer’s story 

Adam Krug, Wavin

Modular Prefabrication Design in Revit – What happens on site?

Hrvoje Jukić, Arhitektonski studio Helman i Jukić

IFC for Revit – demystified
Lejla Secerbegovic, Autodesk GmbH
1.5 Lab: Maintaining Revit Model Standards with Autodesk Model Checker for Revit and Configurator Jason Kunkel, CADD Microsystems


While I wouldn’t typically select labs in this process because they have restricted attendance, I do think this one is  going to be particularly good. Get in while you still can!


Day 2: Friday:

Session Title Speaker

Etlik Health Campus: Dynamo & Revit for MEP Hospital design case study

Riccardo Pagani, BIMOn

Manage a Project in 7 Months with Phasing … Design Options … and Other Tools

Elaine Lee, Perkins Eastman

Dynamic Energy Optimization with Autodesk Revit and Insight

Daniel Stine, LHB
2.5 Reverse engineering for tunnel refurbishment with AutoCAD Civil 3D, Dynamo, Revit & Unity. Maarten van den Berg, iNFRANEA


Day two includes a couple of very interesting case studies (I’ll for sure be looking to sit in on the tunnel project talk) as well as a couple talks by two of our most experienced international speakers.

Day 3: Saturday:

Session Title Speaker

A Multi-Disciplinary Design Firm’s Journey to Embrace Early Stage Energy Analysis

Daniel Stine, LHB

Using mathematics in Revit application programming

Francisco Contreras, CTI
The Revit Standards officially recognised as an Open Standard
Mark Wieringa, Bimforce


Our final day includes a closing keynote, so there are only three session slots to chose within, but they still have given us some very strong choices, concluding with an update review of the Dutch Revit Standards work that has been carried out over the last few years, a very important initiative.

While I have selected only one class per session for the schedule laid out above, there are a number of sessions where deciding which class to include here was very difficult, and if you then add in the non-Revit-centric classes, there is enough here to keep you busy for a long time to come. Come along. Learn, share, grow. I look forward to seeing you in Ljubljana!
