Looking for Beta Testers for FOREground

We are currently in beta testing for FOREground, a Revit application designed to assist with site and landscape modeling and documentation. We are specifically looking for landscape architects that have experience with Revit. So if you are a landscape architect that would be interested in beta testing an awesome new toolset for Revit, please get in touch by filling out this contact form.

Interested to read or see a bit more about FOREground? You can check out a preview at the bottom of this AECbytes article and I periodically post updates on twitter (preview of the planting tools).

Revit Pure Live – Tomorrow!

Tomorrow (Wednesday, May 19), at 3 ET/ 12 PT, I will be on Revit Pure Live, talking landscape architecture in Revit. I will be covering some old tricks, plus I will be doing some live demo of our new Parallax App for landscape, FOREground. Some of the FOREground tools were also showcased recently at the end of an AECbytes article about civil and sites, if you want more of a preview.

Video below will be live tomorrow, and also available to watch later.

Parallax Panel Discussion Next Week

For anyone who might be interested, Parallax Team will be participating in a panel discussion next Wednesday, March 24 at 11 PT (2 ET). It is being hosted by two Dynamo user groups- Dynamaniacs of Calgary (DoC) and Dynamaniacs of Edmonton (DoE).

The topic is on the “real” benefits of adopting and using Dynamo and coding within an AEC firm. We plan to talk a bit about FOREground, which is the site/landscape tool set that we have been developing for Revit. (more images and gifs can be found on twitter: https://twitter.com/landarchBIM)

Landform Update: New Topography Nodes

I am excited to announce that there are some new nodes in the latest Landform update. These nodes are written in C#, and if you are interested in taking a look at the source code, I also now have a repository for Landform on GitHub. Shout out to John, over at sixtysecondrevit and creator of Rhythm and Monocle, for getting me going on these.

Most of these new nodes are focused on editing Topography, which is something that I have always wanted to do in Dynamo.

Here are the six new Topo nodes:
