The new RFO Benchmarks are here!

Well, after a LOOONG delay, I can finally say the new RFO benchmark V3 is available. If you just want to be about the benchmarking, link at the bottom. But, if you are curious, here’s a little missive about what’s new, and whats changed, and what I learned, and all that jazz. Part of the […]

Status Update June 2016

I am a little overdue for an update, as there is a lot going on. Px Tools 3.4 development is progressing, ADSK 2017 products are getting Package validations, the web site is getting 2017 updates, formatting updates and some new payment options. And I am continuing to chase issues with Windows 10 support. Px Tools […]

RFO Benchmark for 2017

Just wanted to provide a quick update on the new benchmark. It appears that Autodesk is continuing to push performance in new and interesting ways, and for 2017 this means that DWG Export is now GPU accelerated! That’s great news from a “butt dyno” standpoint, but it’s problematic from a benchmarking standpoint. This is because, […]

ADSK 2016 & Px 3.3.0 Update

A blog isn’t much of a blog without posts, and my last was WAY too long ago, so I thought I would take a break from 2016 validations to provide a little progress report. RTC Australia I will be in Australia at RTC next week, dogfooding Px Tools to provision the labs and playground machines. […]

Don’t Cancel that Install!

Ever had an Autodesk install just… stall? We’ve probably all had situations where we think it has, but the reality is the vast majority haven’t. You just need to know where to look to verify that before you hit cancel.  

Revit 2015 R2

Revit 2015 R2 is out, and there are a couple of interesting things to be aware of. The downloaded installer will install not only Revit 2015 R2, but Dynamo as well. Now, I likes me some Dynamo, but I want to manage my Dynamo install, and not have it buried in a completely separate installer. […]
