I am continuing the research and development for my cloud-based round-trip 2D Revit model editing project.
To recapitulate, the grand plan is to grab a 2D floor plan with furniture and equipment layout from the BIM, upload it to the cloud, and make it accessible for viewing on mobile devices:
Furthermore, I am enabling some simple editing operations on the mobile device, e.g. to move the furniture and equipment around in the room a bit, update the cloud-based data repository, and reflect these changes back into the desktop BIM:
Here are some issues I tackled since my last report:
- Project Overview
- Replicating a CouchDB with Python
- Same origin policy snag and resolution
- Learning and struggling with CouchApps
- Relief moving to Kanso
- Next steps
