Revit project model maintenance can be disruptive to project teams. Also, this maintenance can be very time consuming to manually do on a regular basis. Instead of manually tracking issues and manually fixing common problems, CTC proposes that your team leverage tools to help automate the model maintenance cycle. In Part 2 of this mini-series we will begin to explore a couple tools that will assist in managing imported files and model cleanup.
- Review links and imports within the models
- Purge out unwanted files
- Cleaning up views and sheets
- Removing rogue templates and filters
Revit® project model maintenance can be disruptive to project teams and very time consuming to manually do on a regular basis. Instead of manually tracking issues and fixing common problems, CTC proposes that your team leverage tools to help automate the model maintenance cycle. In part three of this mini-series, we look at some tools that can help with content replacement and editing data values.
- Removing duplicate families
- Cleaning up the annotations, fill patterns and materials
- Renaming sheets and views to follow standards
As a BIM Manager, you have better things to do with your time than to manually track down shared parameter files and issues. While the Shared Parameter Manager will not find files for you, once you have them, it will compare and help in the merging of parameter definitions, as appropriate. Additionally, you can manage parameters in the files more easily by updating naming conventions, using individual updates or with a convenient find/replace. This webinar will introduce you to the major functionality, allowing you to discover a better way to manage your shared parameter files.
- Accessing Shared Parameter Manager
- Introduction to interface
- Compare multiple shared parameter files
- Update parameter names
Revit® project model maintenance can be disruptive to project teams and very time consuming to manually do on a regular basis. Instead of manually tracking issues and fixing common problems, CTC proposes that your team leverage tools to help automate the model maintenance cycle. In part 4 of this mini-series, we will look at how to deal with non-company standard content, and a way to perform tasks on multiple projects.
- Repairing schedules that have broken parameters
- Renaming rooms, spaces, areas as project develops
- Purging content and data from multiple projects at a time
- Additional ways to maintain project files
When something that should be displayed in a view is nowhere to be found, it can cause great frustration. When end users have to spend time fixing these visibility issues, they aren’t being productive on other model development tasks. The Invisibility Advisor was purpose-built to investigate and resolve visibility issues with components that are hidden in various ways, saving time and frustration.
- Accessing Invisibility Advisor
- Introduction to interface
- Selection of elements and views
- Resolve issues with invisibility
Revit project model maintenance can be a disruptive to project teams. Also, this maintenance can be very time consuming to manually do on a regular basis. Instead of manually tracking issues and manually fixing common problems, CTC proposes that your team leverage tools to help automate the model maintenance cycle. In Part 5 of this mini-series, we will look at how to process many of the previous tasks at the same time on multiple projects.
- Cleanup multiple models at the same time
- Purge Content and Data
- Rename Views and Sheets
- Maintain Linked Data
Ensuring Revit users have access to a single source of well-managed content leads to greater project success. Reducing time users spending in searching for the right Revit families positively impacts your firm’s bottom line. We’ve been actively working for years to streamline Revit design and engineering processes. This work has lead us to create HIVE, which was built based upon client feedback to be the best content management system for Revit.
- See how HIVE improves Revit user productivity and reduces frustration
- Learn how innovative BIM Managers are proactively solving project and content issues
- Understand impacts to your projects and firm’s bottom line, ROI
- Get started by organizing your content in a free HIVE instance
HIVE is a streamlined Content Management System and Project Performance Logger. But once set up, how do you get access to the data that provides the BIM Managers so much value? In this webinar we will demonstrate the online reports in detail, explaining all aspects of the stock reports. Additionally, we will walk through the exact workflow to get access to all of your back end data by using Microsoft’s Power BI toolset. At the end, you will see how you can get tons of data at your fingertips, providing insight on the health of your content library and your projects.
- Define Analytics Pre-Requisites
- How to Access HIVE's Analytics
- Obtain the Data Files For Analytics
- Download and Setup Power BI Template
Would you like to automate mundane tasks and complete schedules with speed and accuracy in Revit? Gain valuable efficiency with new workflows leveraging Spreadsheet Link, a CTC Software tool in BIM Project Suite.
- Create multiple sheets in minutes
- Produce a finished schedule with the auto-fill function, which is not available in native Revit
- Generate a toilet accessory schedule with the manufacturer’s specifications
- Quickly populate native Revit schedule fields with ease
Conform your Revit models to company standards by ensuring all elements are on the proper text style and dimensions are not overwritten.
- Explore the DIM Checker and Type Swapper interface.
- Correct dimensions that have been modified to have false information.
- Find elements that were placed on wrong style and correct them
Detail conversion from CAD is time consuming, so why not cut that time in half? Look at a step by step workflow and apply the CTC Type Swapper tool to reduce manual tasks within that workflow.
- Learn detail conversion from CAD
- Review time-saving tools in the Type Swapper
- Discuss using templates for conversion
Revit project files can bloat and slow down over time. Not only does this make our Revit files open, and save slower, but they are less responsive overall. This cost you time, and adds to user frustration. Additionally, extraneous or duplicate information, families, content, parameters, views, and more may lead to accuracy and fidelity issues, causing errors in the documentation. This obviously is a risk that needs to be addressed. CTC has automated processes to help you ensure that your projects are fast, accurate, and easier to interact with. This positively impacts not only your interaction with Revit, but your firm’s bottom line and risk management as well.
Join us as Chris Bercher will present on how leading firms are using these processes for better project outcomes.
- Understand the typical issues that affect Revit projects
- Learn the factors that lead to these issues
- Resolve these typical Revit project issues
- Build a long term strategy to positively impact each project
