A faster way to manage Revit openings & fire safety components [WEBINAR]

Engineers and BIM project coordinators have to keep up with all the openings in their Revit projects at every step. There are times when it’s enough to show openings schematically. At other times, real voids are required. Then, there are those times when openings need to come with fire collars or fireboards.

No matter which of those “times” you find yourself in, our Cut Opening add-on for Revit has got you covered! Along with the option of modifying families that are being inserted, you can use opening families that have your company-specific parameters or fire safety components as specified in technical documentation. There are virtually no limitations.

Cut Opening offers further flexibility and automation by letting you prescribe which opening or fire safety component should be placed at which type of intersection, whether you want to classify them by System Type/Name, Service Type, Wall/Floor Type, or any other unique parameter.

New power for CLT design automation in Revit [WEBINAR]

Cross-laminated timber is a burgeoning material for constructing sustainable buildings. Sustainability, though, is not only about the use of appropriate building materials – it’s also about sustainable processes. The key, therefore, is to make the design process as efficient as possible.

The faster way to modify Revit families & projects [WEBINAR]

Keeping up with numerous Revit families is time-consuming work, especially in large libraries and projects. Even more so when you need to fill in information that comes from some external file, such as Excel.

Sort, pack & stack prefabricated panels easily in Revit [WEBINAR]

Logistics planning is a crucial step in off-site prefabrication of timber or steel wall, floor, and roof panels. The more efficiently it can be done contributes to time and cost savings as well as overall sustainability as the project moves from the design phase to the construction site.

Quick light-gauge steel framing in Revit: from design to CNC export [WEBINAR]

AEC professionals in the light-gauge steel (LGS) framing industry face constant pressure to churn out deliverables, like drawings and schedules. Modeling and updating a frame in Revit® manually, however, means hours of additional work. Not to mention errors.

And mistakes at the design stage result in wasted resources, increasing the carbon footprint of the building project.

Modeling rebar for precast wall panels in Revit automatically [WEBINAR]

In precast concrete design projects, a given precast element may have hundreds of rebars of different shapes and diameters. As detailers and structural engineers know, it takes a lot of time to model all of them manually.

So, Revit® users go on the hunt for ways to do it automatically that would save time and also eliminate errors.

How to automatically number & mark Revit elements [WEBINAR]

Working on building projects requires a lot of attention to the details and precisely organized technical information. A lot of time is spent on repetitive tasks to sort, number, and mark dozens of elements by position, technical specification, function, and other criteria.

The architect marks door elements by type and fire classification; the structural engineer sorts and numbers beams by length and structural capacity; the manufacturer creates a schedule with all the brackets and studs sorted by type and other parameters. All of that takes many hours to do.

Although Autodesk® Revit® itself has a lot of features to manage projects and generate the requisite data and documents, it still takes up quite a lot of time to sort and mark elements. Architects and engineers who use Revit encounter issues like those below frequently. Can you relate?

Creating optimal sandwich panel envelopes in Revit [WEBINAR]

In designing sandwich panel buildings in Autodesk® Revit®, automation is a key factor in working efficiently. When it is applied in all project phases – modelling, documentation, and output to production – human and environmental resources may be used more wisely.

We have a solution that can help you achieve this. Introducing our Sandwich Panels BIM solution for Revit users.

Sandwich Panels helps BIM professionals make optimal choices, move much faster, and avoid errors at every stage – from conceptual design to technical design and construction – thanks to advanced automation, built-in best practices, and the ability for the entire BIM team to work in a unified project environment. Check it out in our live, free webinar on February 10!

How to automate views in Revit without creating assemblies [WEBINAR]

Creating assemblies is a useful feature in Revit. It lets you take advantage of the benefits that working with assemblies brings, such as separate drawings for assemblies and easier project documentation.

But what happens when you need to detail individual elements that are already part of an assembly?

Revit doesn’t have a feature for doing specifically that, so Revit users often face problems like these:
