Hartmann and Sandoval Selected for Revit Gunslingers

KAI is home to two Revit Gunslingers! Mike Hartmann and Arno Sandoval are both members of this ‘invitation-only’ group for Autodesk. Gunslingers beta test new versions of Revit and this year, Autodesk will be holding two sessions, each with Architecture, MEP, and Structural groups. Mike was one of 16 invitees from across the country for the past two years, and some of his comments and suggestions were incorporated into the final versions of the software. As a member of the Architecture group, this will be Arno’s first year attending. Congratulations guys!
