Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Another year almost up. Thanks to everyone who visited my blog this year - wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Quite like this Xmas construction image from a search on Google Images :)
Looking back through Google Analytics, the most popular blog posts from this year (in reverse order) have been:

5th - The NBS BIM Ecosystem
Our marketing campaign for the year focussed around the "NBS BIM ecosystem". In March I wrote this blog post explaining how we help link specification, with technical guidance, with standards, with manufacturer information and with free-to-use BIM objects.

4th - The BIM Toolkit
We're currently hard at work developing the BIM Toolkit. This will provide the industry with free-to-use level of definition guidelines for building and infrastructure project and a digital plan of work tool.
This blog post is from September.

3rd - BIM Levels of Maturity
The industry talks about the levels of BIM maturity. The Bew-Richards wedge is famous.
Bouw Informatie Raad did their own illustrated sketch of these levels.

2nd - Two common misconceptions about classification
Do you know the difference between naming convention and classification? What about terminology and classification?
Also, does the Supergrass MP3 analogy really work? Read this blog post from January and make your own mind up.
You say potato I say pot-at-toe

1st - Top three enhancements to the NBS Plug-in for Revit
The most popular post was from June this year where I looked at some of the latest enhancements to the NBS Plug-in for Autodesk Revit. These enhancements included:

  1. Better integration between the model and the NBS specification
  2. The ability to tag materials and 2D objects with NBS codes
  3. The ability to add NBS codes from within the family editor
Select your object - view the specification (click for bigger)
