Revit as a Design Tool (w/ Balkan Architect !!! )

It’s the collaboration you have all been waiting for! Maybe? Well, it’s one that I have been waiting for! On this episode of BIM After Dark Live I will be joined by Milos AKA ” @Balkan Architect ” to discuss using Revit as a Design Tool.

Milos has spent the last 5+ years developing an impressive 825+ Revit tutorials on his YouTube channel that span a wide spectrum of topics. Some if his most popular Revit tutorials are focused on designing with Revit.

I am super excited for this episode for two reasons:
1. Milos and I are both extremely passionate about the concept of using Revit as a design tool that *does not* restrict your creativity or process.
2. To get to know the “Balkan Architect” himself!

Sit back, relax, and let’s geek out!
