Hey guys,

Because I value this forum and website I thought it would be nice to give everyone who is a member a 20% off discount of my first video series "BIM After Dark - Volume 1: BIM Can be Sexy...".


BIM After Dark is great for you if you're tired of people telling you that BIM is not for presentations and that Autodesk® Revit® is only good for documentation. You spend hours developing a fully detailed building information model, why not show it off? Learn how to create beautiful, professional, and high quality presentations with your building information models.


Save 20% if you head over the BIM After Dark now and use promo code:  "badrevitcity" 


Here are some awesome reviews form notable Revit community members:



The infamous Paul Aubin, of the recently released "Renaissance Revit", was kind enough to review the videos and write an great post about it:

"If you just finished your first Revit project, but found the graphics just fell a little flat, this course is perfect for you. And if you are a Revit expert, there is certainly some little gems in there for you too. I picked up more than a few such tidbits myself." ... Continue reading Paul's post...


Luke Johnson, of What Revit Wants (if you don't follow him... you should), published a very nice piece about BIM After Dark after he reviewed the videos.  Luke talks about the sample files:

"The plethora of included content and samples are also of very high quality, so if you can get access to them, I recommend that you do so. It includes texture, background and entourage images, Revit library files and some Photoshop PSD files too." ... Continue reading Luke's post...


Michael Anonuevo (Club RevitLittle Details Count), who has created a very nice eBook about Revit Family Creation, published a detailed, information packed, review of BIM After Dark.  Michael breaks down the entire process from launching the BIM After Dark website, to purchasing, downloading, and viewing the videos.  He hit most of the points and understood fully how I hoped this first video series would be portrayed.  Some notable quotes:

"...The unique thing about how he explained certain topics is that he left his mistakes (admittedly) such as clicking the wrong menu or inadvertently choosing a wrong option. Thereafter, he explains how to get out of the mistakes. His explanations are detailed and to the point..."


"...I definitely recommend these videos. It is a must have for beginners and a welcome addition to advanced and professional users." ... Continue reading Michael's post....


Remember, save 20% if you head over the BIM After Dark now and use promo code:  "badrevitcity"

Hey guys.... An Update on BIM After Dark:


"I received quite a few emails from people who purchased the "Videos" and "Videos Plus" package asking if I could offer "Prezi for Architects" on it's own.  So I did!  There is now an options to buy the Prezi videos and templates separately (if you so desire):

Have you heard of Prezi? Have you used it yet? Are you still using those boring old PowerPoint templates for your presentations? You've embraced technology enough to be using BIM authoring tools but you still present with PowerPoint!? Get with the times! Prezi is perfect for architecture!For those of you who are not familiar with Prezi here is a perfect definition: 

"Prezi is a virtual whiteboard that transforms presentations from monologues into conversations: enabling people to see, understand, and remember ideas." ( 

A proper Prezi presentation illustrates an understanding of scale, orientation, movement, design, and proportions. Hmmm... All of those things sound very familiar. With Prezi you can lay out an array of ideas in a non-linear form and focus on which ideas matter. It's perfect for us scatter brains! 

Another reason I feel Prezi is made for architects is the ability to zoom. Zooming changes scale. Imagine being able to quickly zoom from a campus map, to a floor plan, to a room, and then back out to a campus map. Seamlessly changing scale while keeping your audience in context. Brilliant!  CryingClick here to check out my Masters Thesis Prezi presentation...)

Not convinced yet? Still want to fire up PowerPoint and get that gradient background master slide rolling? Click here to download BIM After Dark. The complete package includes a 10 minute video that teaches you everything you need to know about Prezi (again, there is also an option to download "Prezi for Architects only). That's it... Ten minutes! It is that easy to learn. "

Hey, it's me again... Just wanted to update everyone about the BIM After Dark Image Gallery....


"BIM After Dark has now been live for almost two months. The concept of "BIM Can be Sexy" and "BIM for design" has really began to surface and develop in my mind throughout the process of creating BIM After Dark and discussion with you, my readers. 

I wanted to create a post to document the images I have created (and hopefully you will create) using techniques I illustrate in BIM After Dark: Volume 1.  I hope to continue adding images (created by both you and I).  Every image below was made using Revit, Photoshop, and BIM After Dark. Cryingoh, some images may have required a pen or pencil too).
If you have not done so yet, head over to my BIM After Dark website to purchase your copy of the video series (or check out the free sample video).  If you have done so, email me images you have created using the techniques within the videos and I will add them to this post for everyone to see!
