Autodesk R Revit R for Architecture, MEP, and Structure is a powerful BIM program that supports the ability to coordinate, update, and share design data with team members throughout the design construction and management phases of a building's life. A key component in managing the BIM process is to establish a company foundation for different types of projects by creating standard templates and custom family elements.
Having this in place makes the process of any new project flow smoothly and efficiently. The objective of the Autodesk R Revit R BIM Management: Template and Family Creation learning guide is to enable users who have worked with the software to expand their knowledge in setting up office standards with templates that include annotation styles, preset views, sheets, and schedules, as well as creating custom system, in-place, and component families.
This learning guide contains practices that are specific to each discipline. Topics Covered Create custom templates with annotation styles, title blocks, and custom element types. Create schedules, including material takeoff schedules with formula. Create custom wall, roof, and floor types as well as MEP system families. Set up a component family file with a parametric framework. Create family geometry. Create family types. Modify the visibility of components and incorporate additional family items such as controls, MEP connectors, and nested components.
Create specific families, including in-place families, profiles, annotations, and parameters. This learning guide also contains discipline-specific practices for families, including: doors, windows, railings, pipe fittings, light fixtures, gusset plates, and built-up columns.
Knowledge of basic techniques is assumed, such as creating standard element, copying and moving elements, and creating and working with views, etc. This student guide is intended to introduce students to the user interface and the basic building components of the software that makes it a powerful and flexible structural modeling tool.
The goal is to familiarize you with the tools required to create, modify, analyze, and document the parametric model. It is highly recommended that students have experience and knowledge in structural design and its terminology. The Autodesk Civil 3D software permits the rapid development of alternatives through its model-based design tools. You will learn techniques enabling you to organize project data, work with points, create and analyze surfaces, model road corridors, create parcel layouts, perform grading and volume calculation tasks, and layout pipe networks.
Create and edit parcels and print parcel reports. Create points and point groups and work with survey figures. Create, edit, view, and analyze surfaces. Create and edit alignments. Create data shortcuts. Create sites, profiles, and cross-sections.
Create assemblies, corridors, and intersections. Create grading solutions. Create gravity fed and pressure pipe networks. Perform quantity takeoff and volume calculations. Use plan production tools to create plan and profile sheets.
Prerequisites Access to the version of the software. The practices and files included with this guide might not be compatible with prior versions.
Covering all of the 2D concepts, it uses both metric and imperial units to illustrate the myriad drawing and editing tools for this popular application. Solving all of the workshops will simulate the creation of three projects architectural and mechanical from beginning to end, without overlooking any of the basic commands and functions in Autodesk Revit Architecture Files also available for downloading from the publisher by writing to info merclearning. The content and exercises have been added to this training guide in the same order that the objectives are listed for the Autodesk Revit for Mechanical Building Systems exam.
This guide is intended for experienced users of the Autodesk Revit software. Autodesk recommends hours of hands-on software experience prior to taking the Autodesk Revit Review for Professional Certification - Mechanical Building System exam.
This book is filled with tutorials, tips and tricks, and will help you get the most out of your software in very little time. The text walks you through from concepts to site plans to floor plans and on through reflected ceiling plans, then ends with an easy chapter on how to customize Autodesk Revit to boost your productivity.
The advantages of working in 3D are not initially apparent to most architectural users. The benefits come when you start creating your documentation and you realize that your views are automatically defined for you with your 3D model. Your schedules and views automatically update when you change features. You can explore your conceptual designs faster and in more depth. Learning to use Revit will allow you to communicate your ideas and designs faster, more easily, and more beautifully.
This command reference can be used as you are working in the software to help you understand what each command does and how it may be used in your overall workflow. Also included with this book are nearly video tutorials which will further help you master Autodesk Revit. The book is organized in the same way the Revit user interface is presented.
Each tab of the Ribbon is represented as a chapter in the book. Within the chapter each button is represented in the book as it appears on the Ribbon from left to right. Organizing the book in this way makes it easy to locate each command in the book and understand its use.
For each command entry you will see a brief description of what the tool will do, how it is used, and the options you will be given as you use the tool. As you learn the tools in Revit you may not need to read the full entry on the tool. This book will help facilitate your learning of the Revit interface and all of the commands. For more experienced users, the command reference may introduce you to commands you have not used before or help you with commands you use less frequently.
Whatever level of user you are, this command reference becomes a valuable resource to you as you work with Revit. All Rights Reserved.
