Assemblies in Revit®: How to Use Them Smart. Part 2

In the last post I described my viewpoint on plain Autodesk® Revit® possibilities creating assemblies. This time I’ll share my experience using Revit together with additional BIM software.

Let’s take an example project and run briefly through the drawings’ preparation using Smart Assemblies. Even if you have a small project like in the picture below with something like 50 columns, 80 beams, some wall panels and 500 hosted details, plus 300 openings, you will still have a lot of hours of work to complete your drawings.

Let’s say I have configured dimensioning of one beam, but I have to make 30 drawings of the same kind of beam just with different lengths, hosted details and openings. Drawing looks like this:Read more »

You can hear a lot about Revit possibilities in webinars, seminars and see project examples over the internet and you can be sure you’ll model your building with all its elements. But there is always question about the effort you required for your project completion.Read more »
