Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) August 08, 2012
BIM9 announced today that it has become a Level 1 sponsor at the 2012 Central States Revit Workshop (CSRW). As part of the sponsorship, BIM9 has developed a new and unique way for CSRW attendees to experience Revit “in the cloud.”
“We will be configuring a BIM9 private BIM cloud at the CSRW event. This system will give us the processing power in a single box needed to host up to 20 users simultaneously for the BIM9 Bring Your Own Device/Design Challenge,” said Lonnie Cumpton co-founder and Business Development Manager at BIM9.
The BIM9 Bring Your Own Device/Design (BYOD) Challenge encourages CSRW attendees to bring their own laptops or tablet devices where BIM9 will help them connect to the BIM9 private BIM cloud so they can experience running Revit “in the cloud” first-hand. “We’ll even copy any Revit models they bring to the private BIM cloud as well, said Bill Debevec, co-founder and Technical Manger at BIM9 “This will allow attendees to experience the performance of a BIM9 private BIM cloud in a real-world environment, with their own models using their own devices.”
“We created the ‘BIM9 BYOD Challenge’ to let users experience the performance of a BIM9 private BIM cloud without any question as to what is happening behind the curtain. They will be able to load their project data onto the private BIM cloud and access it from either the personal device they bring, or on one we have provided. The BOXX 8920 system that will be powering the private BIM cloud has dual Xeon processors and 128GB of RAM and will allow us to connect up to 20 Revit users to the same machine at the same time. This should give us plenty of processing power for the event and allow participants to see what a BIM9 private BIM cloud can do for their projects," commented Bill.
CSI Nebraska and RUGON - Revit User Group of Nebraska will be hosting the Central States Revit Workshop 2012 that will be held on Friday and Saturday, September 21st and 22nd at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs Iowa. There will be 3 tracks of breakout sessions following each "flavor" of Revit - Architectural, MEP and Structural. The conference focuses on intermediate and advanced Revit users from the Omaha, Lincoln, Des Moines, Sioux City and Kansas City metro areas. The event is bringing some of the industry’s top talent to teach the sessions including William Spier, Joe Eichenseer and Steve Stafford to name a few.

“I am looking forward to participating in the inaugural Central States Revit Workshop this year,” said Paul Aubin, author of The Aubin Academy Master Series: Revit Architecture and featured Revit author on lynda.com. “There is a terrific lineup of speakers and sponsors and combined with the intimate venue it should prove very valuable to all attendees. I hope to see you there.”
“We wanted to create an opportunity for those Revit users in the Midwest that don't get the chance to travel to Autodesk University and the Revit Technology Conferences to get the same kind of training from the same instructors,” commented Carla Edwards, the CSRW Committee Chair. “The 2012 Central States Revit Workshop has attracted some of the best instructors, booked a great venue and put it all together for a very affordable price. If you’re in the Midwest and have not reserved your spot do so quickly because space is limited. If you’re not in the Midwest, but want to get educated by some of the industry’s top Revit instructors you may want to take a look at this very cost effective event.”
