Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Develop a Revit CFD model using CFD industry best practices.
  • Leverage Revit data and parameters to manage the CFD project.
  • Learn what Revit information translates to Autodesk CFD and how to leverage it.
  • See examples of Revit design geometry that can cause issues with CFD.

Description

Description

The interoperability between Autodesk Revit and Autodesk CFD can be challenging in a number of areas. Most Revit design models typically contain a high level of detail for construction, gaps in geometry, clashes, and other unresolved conflicts that can create issues when imported to the CFD environment. In this session, participants will learn how to develop and maintain a Revit model for geometry creation suitable for Autodesk CFD analysis using industry best-practices, and review examples of the type of Revit geometry that can be repurposed and what should be replaced. The session will also present methods of leveraging Revit's powerful data, visualization, coordination, and documentation functionality to enhance CFD development, design coordination, data management, and reporting.
