  • Save to my AU Saved

Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Explain the coordinate systems in Revit projects and families
  • Use the project base point and survey point
  • Successfully link multiple project files/models with predictable results
  • Exercise total control over the shared coordinate system instead of letting it control you

Description

Description

One cannot sail happily and safely without mastery of navigation coordinates, and the same holds true for any Revit-based software user who works on projects with a multitude of linked models. This class blows away the fog covering coordinate systems in Revit and offers clarity so you can sail your way through the roughest of seas. We drill through all the means of controlling shared coordinates and lift the curtain of abstraction through rich, visual aids. Learn to properly rig your projects and linked files for perfectly-shared positioning and master the concepts behind survey and project base points. Following this class you will no longer have to rely on the Coast Guard for rescue and assistance and will garner the bravado of a true captain of the seas!

David Baldacchino

David has practiced Architecture for 12+ years and draws his experience from exposure to projects of all shapes and sizes, new or renovated, mainly in the Educational and Healthcare sectors. He was the team leader on several Revit pilot projects prior to joining HOK in late 2012 as Regional buildingSMART Manager, where he is still very passionate about mentoring his peers in the office and across the globe through his blog "Do U Revit?" and as an author on "HOK BIM Solutions". His current role is focused around leading project teams with all aspects of BIM and inter-related technologies across the disciplines of Architecture, Interiors, Landscape/Planning, Structural and MEP, all the while championing HOK's firm-wide processes. David graduated with a Masters of Architecture (Texas A&M - 2001), a Bachelor of Engineering & Architecture (University of Malta - 1999) and in his spare time is always desperately trying to keep up with reading and contributing to the BIM and Revit communities.
