A Portable Revit Workstation

A Product Review by Michael Anonuevo



In the Revit family modeling eBook I’m currently writing, the chapter on Computer Configuration includes a discussion on desktop and laptop workstations. While I have enough material pertaining to desktop workstation configurations, I barely have any relevant information on modern mobile workstations. I do have a laptop –an Intel Core 2 Duo-based laptop with a 16″ screen, which I use as a third computer backup. But by today’s laptop processor standards, it hardly qualifies as a mobile workstation (translation: obsolete!). Sure it runs Revit, but all functions are painfully slow.

With the gaining popularity of the new and more powerful Intel® Core™ i7 and Intel®Xeon® processors for the laptop, I needed information about them for inclusion in my eBook. I also wanted to write a review for the benefit of Revit users. Having previously dealt with BOXX computers in a review I had written on their XTREME 4920 workstation (, I reached out to their Director of Business Development, Shoaib Mohammad, who graciously sent me a laptop for review.

01start image

This article is about the GOBOXX G1840, a laptop classified by BOXX Technologies, Inc. as a mid-range mobile workstation. This model is part of their G1800 WS series. The laptop sent to me was a demo model used by Pixar in one of their trade shows. Knowing this, I expected this model to perform as a true mobile workstation, capable of running Revit and other graphics programs.

So does this model qualify as a desktop replacement? It’s a resounding YES, so please read on for more details.

3Dconnexion Invasion of Planet Revit

The SpaceExplorer, SpaceNavigator and SpaceNavigator for Notebooks _ a multiple products review by Michael Anonuevo

It has been two months now since I started using 3Dconnexion’s SpacePilot PRO. Without a doubt, 3D navigation devices are definitely here to stay.

For those of you who just happened to stumble on this article, please read my previous review of the SpacePilot PRO at :

The way I use Revit has completely changed. I’ve incorporated the SpacePilot PRO and its powerful programmable buttons in my daily work. I am now automatically reaching for it with my left hand. I’ve also learned how to configure the buttons to my advantage. You’ll find out all about this at the end of this article with my follow-up review of the SpacePilot PRO.

I’m happy to tell you that I’ve gotten a tremendous amount of good feedback from readers saying how helpful my article was. And just as I had anticipated, I’ve gotten inquiries about 3Dconnexion’s other models. Well, after communicating with 3Dconnexion, they sent me the rest of their product line. And so guys, here’s the lowdown on the SpaceExplorer, SpaceNavigator and SpaceNavigator for Notebooks…

Paul Aubin’s comments on my Detailed Revit Families

Paul Aubin is the well known  Revit guru and author who has written several bestselling  books on Revit Architecture, AutoCAD MEP and AutoCAD Architecture. In 2006, his book (Mastering Autodesk Revit Building) is what got me started on Revit.  This is what he has to say regarding the Revit families on my website:

“There are many ways to approach the task of building Revit content. And sometimes, the little details count! I cannot think of a more aptly named website for the excellent content produced by its founder Mr. Anonuevo. Great care is taken in crafting the three-dimensional details and applying very realistic and believable materials. Furthermore, Mr. Anonuevo clearly understands that good Revit content is not just about 3D. He includes 2D symbolic line representations for the plan views to simplify and help with performance. I got a direct look at his drum set. Now I grant you, this is a big Family file weighing in at 12M. But doing a quick test with about 25 copies, the file only grew to 18M. This is because there are few parameters and formulas in the file. So in 2D views, it performs quite well. And really, when would you need 25 drum sets in a single file anyhow… Now your results might vary if using his casino furniture. There it would be more likely to have many copies, but again Mr. Anonuevo takes advantage of symbolic lines in 2D views and keeps parameters to a minimum. What I like most about his efforts is the amazingly high quality renderings he has been able to achieve. There is a degree of realism here that I have not seen in other Revit content and projects. Well done! Overall I would say that you are in the market for casino gaming content or musical instruments, begin your search with”  Paul Aubin_January 21, 2011

Revit Families_Using Content Created from Autodesk Inventor Professional 2011

Hello everybody! I know it has been a while since my last post. I’ve been busy writing an article for AUGI AEC Edge magazine which is slated for inclusion on its upcoming Fall issue (to be released sometime in December 2010). In the article, I’ll be presenting a lot of practical tips and tricks in Revit family modeling. You don’t want to miss this issue. I’ll be including a few instructional videos as well as a couple of free downloads.

For today’s post, we will be looking into Autodesk Inventor 2011 as a source of Revit content. As you may know, I’m a staunch supporter of families created in native Revit geometry. However, there are some complex shapes that are extremely difficult or impossible to create using the Family editor tools. Just recently, I created a model of an electric guitar. I wanted to produce a unique Revit family where I can get to use all the tools in the family editor. Please check it out at:

Although I am very pleased with the outcome, I wasn’t able to model it exactly as I had planned to. I wanted an arched top to go along with the smooth body profile. The concept is easy enough to execute by using an arch void extrusion applied to the top of the guitar body. The problem is I could not round the edges. Revit does not allow you to do a void sweep on edges created by a void and solid extrusion (see Figure 1):

Figure 1

After a few failed attempts, I abandoned the idea of an arched top in favor of a flat top. I then decided to take a closer look at other 3D applications to see if I can create the guitar design I had envisioned. This is when I discovered Autodesk Inventor 2011. Before I explain how I got into it, take a look at how easily Autodesk Inventor created the arched top as shown in Figure 2. The top curve is also tangent to the rounded edges.
