Description

Description

Autodesk Revit software has great built-in tools for adding and managing keynotes. Often these tools are underused, possibly because most design firms prefer to use their own custom notes and the process of customizing the text within the notes file may initially seem daunting. In this class, we will look at the keynoting tools starting with the spec/keynote library and the tag as they exist out-of-the-box. Then we will quickly progress to customizing the notes as well as the keynote tag. You will see how keynotes (sometimes called flagnotes) can associate a number or code and a corresponding spec or line of text to any object in a Revit model. You will also see how a simple text file of keyed notes can be easily customized to use any notes you need for your projects. We will also present options for streamlining this process. This class will be useful to beginners, intermediate users, and anyone who wants to use keynotes. You should have some knowledge of Revit navigation and tagging.

Tony has a gained a variety of past experiences from serving as a Mechanical Engineer, Facilities manager, AutoCAD trainer, BIM Manager and Revit Ninja. He has recently found his calling providing training and technical services with CAD-1, focusing on clients using Revit MEP. Tony credits his good teaching skills to "being a poor student" He says "I've always loved to learn new things, but I often learned very little in the standard classroom lectures. I really needed to do things myself before I could learn them. I try to apply the lessons that I've learned into my own teaching -- and reach my students with whatever methods work for them."
