The use of lines in Autodesk Revit models can sometimes be shortsighted, leading to messy model files and uncoordinated drawings, or worse, missing information when collaborating with teams. However, what if there is a time crunch, and no time to think straight? How can you sort out the immediate task and know what is best to do in these situations? Learn to stop for a moment, breathe, and identify the immediate task and the workflows that are needed. Find out how to appropriately use lines in Revit models and the best practices to follow through with after the immediate task is complete. Understand the reasons for using and not using lines within the context of Building Information Modeling (BIM). Learn how to turn those lines into components instead, taking advantage of associated Revit software functionality, and breaking the desire to use lines in the first place.

In this class, we will explore ways of integrating sustainability into design curricula, highlight several successful classroom and design studio examples, and outline the innovative approaches they use. We will share best practices and lessons learned from these experiences, discuss practical concerns and logistics, and encourage creative thinking about how to create an inspired and actionable plan for incorporating new sustainable design learning strategies into your own courses. We will also learn about the Autodesk Green Building Certificate program—an online learning path for green building software tools that is underpinned by building science fundamentals and that builds on the resources in the Autodesk Sustainability Workshop.
The design development stage of a building design is an important time for refining the building design for meeting requirements, but it is also the time when good communication with the client is crucial for getting their approval. In this class, we will demonstrate ways of using Autodesk Revit software to make sure that you are fulfilling the design criteria through verifying space usage per the program, addressing room occupancy, and visually coordinating fire-rated walls and doors. We will also show how to communicate the design to the client through room data sheets, 3D plans per floor, floor plan shadowing, color schemes, and other methods.
Establecer emplazamientos que están compartidos en Autodesk® Revit® puede ser difícil para los usuarios que están mas acostumbrados al sistema de coordenadas abiertas en AutoCAD®. Autodesk Revit tiene herramientas para trabajar con emplazamientos y compartir las coordenadas con otros usuarios, pero hay que comprender esas herramientas primero. Una vez que comprenda el punto de medición (Survey Point) y que relación guarda con el punto base de proyecto (Project Base Point) podremos entonces analizar cuatro escenarios comunes en los cuales hemos de establecer un sistema de coordenadas compartidas.

O uso da tecnologia BIM tem avançado no mercado brasileiro. Construtoras buscam utilizá-la nas etapas de pré-construção e construção para aprimorar o processo de gestão dos empreendimentos, reduzir o número de ordens de alteração e melhorar a qualidade do produto final. Isto exige que projetistas, construtores e clientes mudem seus processos de trabalho e trabalhem de maneira mais integrada. Através da apresentação de casos nos quais a tecnologia foi aplicada, descubra os principais benefícios do uso da tecnologia BIM na pré-construção e entenda a mudança necessária no fluxo de informação entre projetista, construtora e cliente para que o modelo BIM mantenha a sua eficiência e aplicabilidade ao longo de todo ciclo de vida do empreendimento.
The typical workflow for architects, and interior and lighting designers requires the ability to quantify furniture, fixtures, and specialty equipment per room or space. This functionality has been missing from the Autodesk® Revit® Architecture software until now. Revit 2013 finally gives the architecture profession access to the embed schedule. In Autodesk® Building Design Suite Premium and Ultimate editions, Revit 2013 contains all the flavors of Revit, streamlining workflows and giving its users access to unique abilities.
In this class, Hill will discuss the process of using Autodesk Fabrication software to design, prefabricate, and build mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems; and cover the value of using the estimating module to instantaneously evaluate actual costs and the delta costs of jobsite changes. Hill & Samsung C&T will then discuss the impact Autodesk Fabrication has on changing the traditional bid/build process into a more collaborative and integrated processes. Samsung C&T will then discuss their experience with implementing Autodesk Fabrication Software in the Asia market place, where BIM is now finding its tipping point to enter into the mainstream.
In a fast-paced design-build environment, the ability to streamline and accelerate processes necessary for optimized project delivery is directly proportional to the ability to minimize information loss. Using real-life examples, we will demonstrate how complex projects and their demanding schedules be improved from the use of Autodesk Building Design Suite. The class will cover a Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow from the very beginning of the design and construction process. We will discuss how early decisions have a lasting impact on the building’s performance and lifecycle cost, explore the process of program development and client engagement using advanced visualization techniques, and finally, delve into the process of document production and coordination. This BIM-enabled workflow determines a team’s ability to collaborate and deliver a product that will exceed the client’s expectations.
In this case study, we will provide insight into a web-based workflow in which the entire design team took responsibility for identifying, reporting, and resolving clashes against their discipline’s major systems. The team used Autodesk BIM 360 Glue, a cloud-based management solution, and Autodesk Revit software to achieve continuous clash reporting throughout the design process. This effort effectively mitigated the mountain of clashes that can occur at the end of the construction document phase because the process was implemented early and on a consistent schedule with all design disciplines. We will identify lessons learned from this workflow, including both pros and cons.
