Working with Masonry in Revit® is quite challenging. Most of what is available is strictly two-dimensional and the components that can be modeled are not accurate and have overly simplistic graphics. The lack of elements available makes working with masonry conditions cumbersome which adds a lot of unnecessary work. This webinar will go over a handful of different workflows that highlight some useful add-ins and free content to make working with masonry worth the effort.
- Understand the shortcomings and workflows to get around them.
- Discover which tools and add-ins are available.
- Additional Resources for discovering more and where to obtain these tools.
If there’s one thing we can all get on board with, it’s free stuff. Unfortunately, free doesn’t always translate to great, or good, or even ok. In this webinar, we will cover a number of the best free tools that are available in the CTC Suites.
- Learn which free tools are geared towards improving productivity in projects.
- Learn which apps help with content and project management.
- Develop and understanding of how some of the keys features are used.
Ever wanted to take all of the client’s building requirements surrounding areas and spaces, departments and rooms, and turns those into massing blocks and layout the building design like we used to? Color-coded block diagrams and studies report the areas by department, area type, or room type? This webinar will take these requirements to the moon and back, returning with your colored massing blocks full of data pulled directly out of the datasheets, all while using one simple yet powerful tool.
- How to map the building requirements program to massing block parameters.
- Generate diagrams and reports using data provided from model.
- How to create a template for use on multiple projects.
Revit® doesn’t have a native way to plan room types and content to be placed. Many of us meet with clients to decide what is needed in the project before preliminary design even begins. This programming needs to be captured so we can validate that we met the program once the design is complete. There are some tools that are very expensive, but if you are seeking an entry-level solution, the Room Family Manager may be a powerful solution that you can leverage to program your projects with delivery validation.
- Accessing Room Family Manager
- Introduction to Interface
- Define and Assign Room Types
- Creation of Families and Room Validation
Revit® has passable tools for managing linked files, but they could be easier to use. Additionally, there are no tools to manage or discover the imports that make their way into our design models. The Import & Link Manager tool handles both of these issues, making the correction of imports and the management of links far easier. Join us as we explore this toolset, so you can more efficiently manage your models.
- Learn how to obtain the BIM Manager Suite
- Introduction to Import & Link Manager user interface
- Executing link management
- Updating imported models efficiently
Revit’s revision system can work well when clouds are used. However, try to associate a revision to a sheet or series of sheets without a cloud on that sheet, and things become somewhat more tedious. Try to get a report of all revisions on all sheets, and now we’ve reached the impossible in native Revit. This webinar will demonstrate how revisions can be more efficiently managed in a Revit project, how Revision reports can be obtained, and by using another BIM Project Suite tool, how they can be represented efficiently on a cover sheet.
- Understanding how to Access Revision Manager
- Execute Easy Sheet Revision Updates
- Define Sheet and View Revision Filters
- Export Sheet Revision and View Revision Cloud Reports
