The BIM Troublemaker blog is one that I follow regularly. This guy is always looking for new and creative ways to push the boundaries of 3D family models. In his latest exploit, he models a fantastic spring within Revit. "Why?" you may ask. Well, why not?!

At the end of the blog post there are even links to the actual family models, so you can play along with the files. That's why we like this blog so much.

I think most people have heard of the term "Cloud Computing" or "The Cloud" by now, probably in the context of personal computing (think Google, DropBox, etc). But what about putting high-performance graphic workstations up into the Cloud? The AECBytes website has an article on how one firm (Little Diversified Architectural Consulting) is doing just that.

"In general, most of the current discussion around cloud computing has been dealing with the servers (or back-end systems).  Only recently have businesses begun to put their desktops and workstations into the cloud.
