Revit Pure Live – Tomorrow!

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).
