Event Details

February 20, 2018 - 6:00pm

Hear from Revit users as they share their ideas, methods, and best practices in order to further the Building Information Modeling (BIM) benefits for the local design community.

Attendees will receive 2 AIA CEUs for attending.


6:00pm - 6:20pm Networking- Food and drink served

6:20pm - 6:30pm Introductions 6:30pm - 6:40pm Revit Tip - Comment in Sync to Central
Presented by Rob Fink, Quinn Evans Architects

This tip covers how using the comment field in the Sync to central dialog, and how it can be exported to a spreadsheet and used as a summary of changes to the model for exchanges with consultants. 

6:40pm – 7:30pm Masonry Modeling
Presented by Tom Cuneio, CAD Blox

Masonry models are having a significant impact on both design and construction. LOD 350 unit based models allow for detailed studies of exact bonding and layout of masonry. Case studies using these models demonstrate that both internal coordination with cell locations, rebar and in-wall utilities as well as external coordination with steel, mechanical and other trades can now be accomplished. Highly coordinated masonry models are now even accessible during design allowing for accurate wall layout, planning of openings and coordination with structural. Automated masonry sections, various bonding options at corners and even true masonry rendering with natural material ranges are all possible thanks to recent software advances.

1. Study masonry materials and their relationship to other trades through detailed models.
2. Understand the importance of masonry layout and its impact on other construction processes.
3. Explore laser scans and clash detection for improved masonry solutions.
4. Learn about new support for masonry design and rendering in Revit.

7:30pm - 8:00pm Digital Workflow for Modeling of a 3-mile People Mover Structure
Presented by Scott Kinney, Eileen Phan and Greg Stevenson, Walter P. Moore

See a digital workflow including Grasshopper, Dynamo, and Revit used for rapid project delivery of a 3-mile long automated people mover structure. This was instrumental in providing fast turnaround to the client as project details changed.
