Nobody’s perfect. We all acknowledge it, and we are often reminded when problems with our Revit software files come up. Everyone has a list of “low hanging fruit” that they turn to when troubleshooting a project. For example, are things on the right workset? Has another file format been imported and exploded? Are the phases consistent between links? What if we could check these things before the problems arose—like that annual checkup we get at the doctor’s office? We’ve worked to create a fitness check system for all of our discipline models. In this session, we’ll use Microsoft PowerPoint slides and live examples to show Building Information Modeling (BIM) coordinators/managers and modeling leads how to use the tools we’ve developed to track and report the general health of project models. We’ll also explore the ways to share this information with a project team to identify potential problems before they occur, and encourage people to be more proactive when putting together their projects.

As a group, we will share ideas, workflows and techniques to help make for a smoother and less painful transition from AutoCAD to Revit Architecture so that others may benefit from our successes and failures. You may have heard that the only way to switch to using Revit is to just dive right in and take the plunge. Well maybe there are options to this “sink or swim” approach. How do you re-train your staff? Who should learn (or not learn) Revit? How can AutoCAD fit into a Revit office. This discussion will help answer some of your questions and address some of your fears. We will share with one another how switching to Revit has affected our office, workflow, staffing and efficiency. Share the successes and failures which you experienced making the transition to Revit. Let's help anybody who is considering, but who has not yet made the move to Revit. Together as a group, let’s share how we all made the switch while putting some common fears and myths to rest.<br/><br/>

Learn advanced skills capitalizing on the new Fabrication functionality in Revit 2017 software. Using Revit schedules, assemblies, tags, views, interference checking, and new features in Revit 2017 software, we can produce fabrication documentation inside of the Revit software interface, which enables us to be fully coordinated with design consultants. While Fabrication Parts was introduced in 2016, it was in Revit 2017 software that they became fully functional while remaining in a single interface. We’ll cover how to model using Fabrication Parts; how to convert the design model into Fabrication Parts; how to use assembly views to create spools sheets and details; how to annotate Fabrication Parts in plan view and 3D; how to coordinate with other consultants in Revit software; how new Revit 2017 software features relate to Fabrication Parts; and how to import existing as-built conditions from Fabrication CADmep software into a new renovation project. This session features Revit and Fabrication CADmep.

Deriving from 2D reinforcement drawings in the past, 3D reinforcement modeling is becoming common practice, and automatically generated reinforcement from calculations is becoming reality. The next challenges are optimization of reinforcement layout and dealing with complex-shaped geometry. This all starts with an integrated workflow, where information is preserved and exchanged along all disciplines—from modeling (Revit software), calculation, and documentation (SOFiSTiK software), to file-to-factory data exchange and on-site verification (BIM 360 Field software). We will use cases from practice to demonstrate this. Learn how to generate complex geometry and rebar parametrically using the Dynamo extension for Revit software. Dynamo software’s parametric infrastructure in conjunction with the advanced 3D finite element method (FEM) analysis of TNO DIANA makes possible evaluation and optimization of structural performance. Hence, the realistic simulation of the structural behavior of complex-shaped structures in reinforced concrete is within reach. This session features Revit, BIM 360 Field, and Dynamo Studio.

The project has been a full lean–Building Information Modeling (BIM) project, using Revit Server application and industry foundation classes (IFC). Both landscape and architect (Snøhetta) and structural and technical design (Rambøll) have been working in Revit software “live” with Revit Server application across the country. There has been interdisciplinary checking with IFC and Solibri. The project has been managed using lean methodology and working both on shared models using Revit Server and also virtual design and construction (VDC) / Integrated Concurrent Engineering (ICE). The design methodology criteria was to provide models for lean construction with limited use of paper drawings and just-in-time principles at building site. The Norwegian Building Authority is the project owner and driver of expectations to utilize lean principles in the 3 phases of planning, design, and construction. The entire design group has been taught lean principles by Porsche Consulting in Germany. The class will cover experiences from all 3 project phases; explain success stories, challenges, and constructive learning points for collaboration; review “zero-failure methodology”; and more.

Connected structural workflows are no longer science fiction but a stark reality that is delivering newfound accuracy and performance. In this class, we will show what a connected structural Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow in Revit software looks like, which will include exploring augmented reality on site. You will see firsthand how intelligent BIM data in a connected workflow can enable common structural elements (such as footings, columns, and beams) to be quickly designed to local codes, and automatically modeled, detailed, and scheduled all within Revit software. We will explore the essential steps that enable you to utilize default or your own custom structural Revit families to automate the creation of designed 3D reinforcement cages in Revit software, while using standard Revit families to configure automated drawings, views, bar schedules, and comprehensive design reports. You will take a virtual trip to site to visualize the reinforcement of your Revit project model using your mobile device without leaving your seat in the class. This session features Revit, Revit Structure, and Robot Structural Analysis. AIA Approved
