Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Discuss the benefits of engineers who are using Revit to produce a 3D model
  • Discuss why architects won't hire engineers who can't or won't use Revit
  • Discuss how engineers can help architects when they use Revit
  • Discuss why it helps when engineers produce a 3D model

Description

Description

It seems like architects jumped on board with Revit®-based software from the beginning because it helps them produce more detailed designs and really doesn't add a lot of additional work. However, engineers have traditionally avoided the switch from AutoCAD® to Revit. In this roundtable, we will discuss the benefits of using Revit from both the architectural and engineering point of view. Architects can explain why engineers need to use Revit and engineers can defend sticking with AutoCAD. Construction managers can also weigh in on why it helps when the engineer produces a 3D model.

Jason Boehning is the Revit Subject Matter Expert at 4D Technologies and authors Revit Architecture, Revit MEP and Revit LT courses. After graduating from Texas A&M University in 2009, Jason helped implement Revit into the design process at an engineering firm in Houston, TX. He was later promoted to BIM Manager and increased productivity for sustainable design and energy modeling using Revit. He also served as the 2011 President of the Houston Chapter of the US International Building Performance Simulation Association. In 2012, Jason decided to make a career of teaching building professionals how to use Revit and joined 4D Technologies in development of their CADLearning® products, helping create affordable training for Autodesk software. He has also spoken at Autodesk University, RTC North America and is an Revit Architecture Certified Professional.
