Parts first became available in Revit® Structure 2012 and has been widely improved upon since then. This hands-on lab starts with a discussion of the evolution of the Parts tool since it was introduced and explores the many potential applications and uses for this tool. From collaboration and coordination with other disciplines to increasing internal efficiency, this tool has immense potential in the design phase of a project. The lab exercise enables attendees to use the tool and try out some of the features in a simulated project. In addition to covering the positive aspects of this tool, this lab also discusses and demonstrates some prospective challenges associated with using Parts in various applications.

Desirée (Dezi) received her bachelor's degree from University of California, Davis and her master's degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and now is a practicing structural engineer at Martin/Martin in Denver, Colorado. In the past several years she has been a regular speaker at Autodesk University and Revit Technology Conference. In addition, she sits on the committee for RoMBIS (Rocky Mountain Building Information Society - a Denver area users group), the Chair of the Structural Engineers Association of Colorado's BIM committee, and she is currently serving as an AUGI board member and Treasurer. Finally, she also acts as a partner in her husband's BIM consulting company, BD Mackey Consulting.
This hands-on lab focuses on using the conceptual massing environment in Revit Structure software to create complex roofs and walls and other complex shapes, such as a transmission tower or even a battleship. We walk through creating the mass framework and then get into the project. We explore advanced techniques to make trusses, complex beams, and columns that host the mass constructs. We also explore the workflow of how to manage change with these tools and how to master these techniques.
Learn the best practices to make your integration between RISA and Revit Structure software as seamless as possible. This class covers common pitfalls and mistakes and teaches you how to avoid them. We also cover all of the advanced features of the RISA-Revit Link, including how to use custom families and libraries when integrating with RISA. Extra time is allotted for Q&A.
Come to this class and discover Advance Steel, the BIM software product specifically designed for steel detailers and fabricators who require easy-to-use structural software for automating drawing creation, documentation, and fabrication.
