See how Revit software can provide powerful insight to your model contents, and how your design team is building them through external data reporting. Information is most useful when presented in a format that is easy to explore and analyze. This class will demonstrate several techniques for getting information out of your models and into a format that you can more easily digest and visualize, all with the goal of helping you make better decisions. This session features Revit, Revit Architecture, and Revit MEP. AIA Approved
Historically, the architecture, engineering, and construction industry has operated in information silos. With the creation of the U.K. BIM mandate, the government has focused on the end product, and has essentially farmed out the workflow for project teams working in a model-based environment. Never before, has there been such an open and sharing mentality among would-be competitors trying to achieve a common goal. This session is the “warts and all“ account of 2 U.K. architecture firms changing perspectives, office cultures, mindsets, and deliverables, focusing on examples of where new technology and innovative workflows have assisted with communication, collaboration, integration, and systems coordination to provide a consistent approach for projects. After attending this class you will understand how change management and communication with an extended project team can benefit your client, the holistic project, and, ultimately, its lifecycle design, along with the negative impacts that not embracing change may have on your business. This session features Revit, BIM 360 Glue, and Navisworks Manage. AIA Approved
The Grand Paris Express (GPE) is a major automated metro infrastructure project in Paris, with a new 200-kilometer tunnel line. The maintenance site (depot) is a key structure in a limited space inserted into a dense urban environment. This situation leads to numerous challenging conflicts between the rail and building design. In this class, we will share Systra’s experience on project Building Information Modeling (BIM) implementation, and show how BIM can be used for rail infrastructure design. You will also discover how BIM can be effective for track alignment, utilities, hydrology, catenary, and telecom when interfacing with architecture, structure, and MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) services. BIM has been used on this project to facilitate data exchange—especially between a civil design with AutoCAD Civil 3D software and architectural design with Revit software—but also to improve 3D coordination and design review. This session features AutoCAD Civil 3D and Revit.
This session will be an interactive roundtable discussion about tips, tricks, and user experiences with technical training for Revit building design software. These tips, tricks, and experiences will be suggested by the attendees and presenter alike, but will then be discussed and perhaps debated by all, with the end goal of an improved process at the close of the discussion. We will add all of the content collected during the session to the handout and share it with all attendees after the session has concluded. All topics are fair game as long as they pertain to Revit software and the training of Revit software. See some examples of topics in the learning objectives below. This session features Revit.<br/><br/>
As mobile technology comes of age on the construction site, the use of iPads and BIM 360 Docs software can now replace the paper plans of the past. The transition to this new environment can be smooth and seamless, or it can be hindered by multiple false starts. This class will provide a live demonstration of the complete process of implementing a BIM 360 Docs project for a sample fire-protection construction project. The lessons taught in this class will have obvious application beyond the fire protection trade, but limiting the live demonstrations to a specific trade provides clarity and enables the presentation to pay some attention to the often-overlooked fire sprinkler industry. We expect the live-demonstration approach of this presentation to provide a great opportunity to understand the capabilities and value of BIM 360 Docs software to anyone involved in the process, including owner/managers, IT personnel, designers, and installers. This session features BIM 360 Docs, AutoCAD, and Revit. AIA Approved
This session will present the new DeWalt Corporation Hanger Design plug-in for Revit software, which automates the placement and design of hangers and trapeze assemblies for common MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) systems, such as pipe, duct, conduit, and cable trays. The placement of these assemblies has historically been based on “rule of thumb” sizing and spacing and/or prescriptive rules from various trade-specific handbooks that do not necessarily comply with current building-code requirements or structural point-load limitations. Modeling MEP systems in Revit software offers many advantages for coordination, prefabrication, consolidation of parallel runs, and placement of cast-in-place hanger inserts. This new tool analyzes these systems, and automatically places hanger/trapeze assemblies, anchors, and seismic bracing per building-code requirements with engineering calculation reports automatically generated. Product-specific content is placed in the model with exporting schedules for field layout, prefabrication, and procurement. This session features Revit and BIM 360 Layout. AIA Approved
Are you required to submit a COBie deliverable from your Revit software model?
