I know what you mean Paul, as I've been working through this giant project I'm on, I've been making Powerpoint presentations, Word documents, you name it because by the time I get back to starting another project, I'll have forgotten everything I had to do on this one to get things going in the right direction.

There are a LOT of things I have to do outside of the NavisWorks side of things but, still using the NavisWorks information such as clash report spreadsheets, file lists of drawings in the models, etc.

Some of those tasks are only done once a week and the setup is only done once per building. Luckily this project has 7 buildings so I get to remember how to do it several times.

The blog is looking good, don't forget about those of us that can't update to the latest and greatest!

Hey Paul, I'm glad you like the site - we certainly hope it doesn't die a slow painful death, or worse, disappear without a wimper. After working on Navisworks for 10 years now, I've a head full of knowledge and still learning all the time – I’m still waiting for someone to invent a brain-download product, but until then, I guess I’ll just have to keep typing! In response to your 2008/2012 scenario – look out for a post on this!

Hey lookie there, I'm famous on the Internet!!

Great site guys, I hope you can keep it up and not go into the Blog Wasteland of Blogs that started out great and died a slow death.

I've already picked up a few tips on here.

Just like Revit For Breakfast said, there's not a lot of info out there for the serious NW'ers amongst us.

Things like Timeliner and creating animations is something I doubt I'll ever have time to work with. I'm currently managing 7 facilities in NW Manage and thankfully no one has asked for pretty animations.

I definitely would like to see my company move to 2012 products but, we still have some 2008 Autocad users out there and if we bump to 2012, we won't be able to install 2008 on any more machines in that division.. ARRggghh..

I'll add you to my bookmarks. I wish the RSS feed you mentioned would work but, I think those are disabled by corporate security as it says it doesn't exist..
