Designers of ventilated façade buildings know how time-consuming, mundane, and error-prone the process can be in native Revit®. And manufacturers know all too well the delays, costs, and rework that any errors in data or documentation can cause in the factory or on site.
Designers of all disciplines who use native Revit® to output 2D documentation invariably face the same time-consuming, mundane, error-prone tasks. Things like having to manually place tags, dimensions, and text notes and create sheet layouts for placing views and schedules.
Placing hangers and supports for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing services in Revit is important to get right. That is, if you want to deliver a proper BIM project. Problem is, that’s hard to do if you’re working in plain Revit because there isn’t a built-in feature for placing hangers (except rarely-used Fabrication Parts).
There are three ways to deal with this difficulty.
So, let’s say you made the transition from designing in 2D to 3D some time ago. You and your team have become confident in using BIM workflows. Check.
But, are you using BIM to its full potential? The time, effort, and financial resources invested into implementing BIM demand that you get as much as possible out of it.
BIM data classification is precisely where you can get more out of BIM. In fact, it’s the key to unlocking its full value. That’s because BIM data classification makes data easier to understand, ensuring accurate and timely budgeting, planning, building, and management of a given asset.
Building homes out of structural insulated panels has become an increasingly popular prefabricated construction type. Designing SIP panel houses in Revit requires a good deal of optimization in order to more easily reach the desired result on time and on budget.
We’ve optimized the process in the form of a specialized framing plug-in for Autodesk® Revit®. It’s called Wood Framing SIPS.
Join our free webinar on December 14th during which you’ll see the process of modeling homes with SIP panels in Revit. Using our Wood Framing SIPS software, the main task is customizing the settings to fit company standards. After that, the framing and documentation process is all automated, and your standard-specific configurations can be used again in future projects. We hope you can tune in!
In every BIM project, engineers, designers, and BIM managers need to be able to share and access the correct content. The simpler and faster this can be done, while guaranteeing content integrity, goes a long way to ensuring that the project will be completed on time and on budget.
When you share Revit families and family libraries with colleagues and clients, can you easily control how you share them and who gets access? Do recipients get notified if any elements have been added or updated?
Designing MEP systems in Autodesk® Revit® requires hanger and support families to be precisely placed so that accurate builder’s work drawings can be made from the 3D model. Needless to say, it consumes lots of time that could otherwise be spent creating additional project value.
Join our free webinar on October 27th during which our BIM expert will show how to automatically insert hangers and supports in Revit models using the MEP Hangers add-on. He’ll also show how to then create detailed shop drawings using the Smart Documentation add-on. We hope you can tune in!
When it comes to designing precast concrete projects in Autodesk® Revit®, hundreds of families have to be placed accurately for every element (Wall, Beam, Column, Slab) in the 3D model. And shop drawings for each element must be made with the requisite dimensions, notes, and other annotations according to various standards.
While all of those tasks can be done in native Revit, it’s tedious, time-consuming, and laden with chances for mistakes to creep in.
That’s why we set out a few years ago to streamline the process. The result was our Precast Concrete suite that eliminates repetitive tasks and minimizes the possibility of error in precast projects in Revit. Tune in to our free webinar on October 13th during which our BIM expert will show how to improve your workflow by adding not only automation but also flexibility.
