Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Create custom precast concrete framing member and connection component families, including warping double tees
  • Use the parts and assemblies features in Revit Structure to combine precast elements and their connections
  • Explain how to create precast concrete shop drawings from Revit Structure
  • Use third-party applications to frame precast and link data in the model with Excel spreadsheets

Description

Description

This class covers modeling techniques for using Revit® Structure to model precast concrete elements and their associated connection elements to a fabrication level. The examples presented are representative of a typical precast concrete building. We learn how to create custom profiles and families for precast elements and how to model these elements to a fabrication-level of detail. Attendees learn how to create smart families for typical precast parts and pieces such as connection elements and daps. We also cover how to manage the data in a precast concrete fabrication model and how to efficiently present this in the form of shop drawings. Third-party applications used for modeling of precast, as well as linking data with Microsoft® Excel®, are also presented.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Structural engineers, BIM/CAD managers, and precast concrete professionals who are interested in learning techniques to model precast concrete to a fabrication level in Revit Structure for commercial buildings, and create shop drawings from these models

Daniel Mccloskey

Dan received his bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. After spending two years in Tampa designing bridges for URS Corporation, Dan attended Purdue University, where he focused his research on seismic design in steel-framed buildings, and received a Master's Degree in Structural Engineering. Dan then moved to Denver, Colorado, where he worked as a Structural Design Engineer, and later, Structural Project Engineer for S. A. Miro, Inc.. During his five years with Miro, Dan became an in-house expert in Revit Structure, and moved into the role of BIM Manager. In 2011, Dan co-founded MB BIM Solutions as a BIM-focused consultancy that provided construction-level modeling of structural systems and components for its clients. Dan is active in the Denver-area BIM community, with Rocky Mountain Building Information Society, as well as the BIM Users Group.
