Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Understand the new features in Revit 2015 software that allow for greater accuracy in structural models
  • Learn how to use the new Revit 2015 software tools to adjust the ends of framing members
  • Learn how to use the new Revit 2015 software tools to control joins of framing members
  • Discuss how the new features in Revit 2015 software help with physical model accuracy without affecting the accuracy of the analytical model

Description

Description

This class will discuss and demonstrate the new features and tools in Revit 2015 software that enable structural engineers to create far more accurate physical models. Whether the intent of the model is comprehensive design or as-built conditions, the new features in Revit 2015 software greatly enhance the user's ability to achieve greater precision and accuracy. This class will cover these many new features, from fine-tuning the ends of framing members to controlling the joining of members. Furthermore, this class will discuss how these new tools enable structural models to provide greater accuracy in the physical model while still maintaining greatly accurate analytical models.

Desiree Mackey

Dezi Mackey has been in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry for more than 15 years. After obtaining her bachelor's and master's degrees from University of California, Davis, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, she perpetuated her nerdy tendencies with Revit software. She started her career in California with a construction company, she continued with a structural engineering firm, and now she is a practicing structural engineer and Building Information Modeling (BIM) manager at Martin/Martin in Denver, Colorado. Dezi is a regular speaker at many conferences. She is the co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Building Information Society, the chair of the Structural Engineers Association of Colorado's BIM Committee, and she is currently serving as an Autodesk User Group International (AUGI) board member and vice president. Finally, as if that is not enough Revit software in her life, she is married to 'The Revit Geek' and acts as a partner in his BIM consulting firm, BD Mackey Consulting.
