Before we get to the actual tips, let’s talk some tools of the trade real quick: Almost 100% of my sketches are created using two pens. It drives me slightly crazy to have a roll of trace paper constantly rolling away when I am trying to sketch.

Shipping 101 Shipping is the roughage in an entrepreneur's diet. Nobody's interested in talking about it, but everybody's got to deal with it. In fact, shipping is one of the most challenging aspects of business for many entrepreneurs. Because the fact is, no one shipping vendor or shipping policy fits all. It's well worth the time to do research before jumping into a shipping plan, says Sergiy Lishchuk, owner of Skokie, Illinois-based Ukrainochka.

Unfortunately, Revit 2014 hasn’t addressed the need to elevate curtain walls, and storefront in the same manner as doors and windows. Under the View menu, click on the elevation button and place a marker where necessary.In your Project Browser, you will see a new elevation created.
