Creating a complete Autodesk Revit® virtual model is the foundation of any successful project, but we still need to generate details and print out paper to get that project built. In this one-day, hands-on course, you can focus on the best strategies to effectively detail your construction documents and more fully harness the parametric capabilities of Revit in regards to the “information” portion of BIM (Building Information Modeling).

Leveraging the Data In Your Model

Creating and applying the three types of Parameters: Project, Shared, and Global
Using the advanced features of Schedules including: calculated values, formulas, and conditional formatting
Learn about using Material Takeoffs, Note Blocks and Key Schedules

Getting Details From Your Model

Using the Linework tool to control specific elements
Leveraging Detail Components to quickly apply and note repetitive elements
Creating Keynotes and a master keynote file to link into your model
Using the Paint and Split Face tools to provide additional material articulation to surfaces and tag these materials
Tagging and scheduling parts of an element using the Parts tool

Sheets and Documentation

Creating Legends to repeat information on multiple pages
Creating and annotating 3D views for inclusion in construction documents
Using Dependent Views and Matchlines to divide up a large building footprint across multiple sheets
Implementing Guide Grids to align elements across multiple sheets
Set up and apply View Templates and Filters to standardize how elements look on similar types of sheets
Learn how to document and issue Revisions
Work with Titleblocks and set up an initial view for general project information

Modeling to the Next Level

Using Profiles and Sweeps to add detail to your model, including integrating these objects into your wall types
Adding articulation to your roof edge by way of Soffits, Fasciae, and Gutters
Detailing surfaces using the Split Face and Paint tools to easily add multiple materials to a single plane

Advanced Components

General In-Place Component Family strategies and best practices for when to use and how to create them
Alternative ways to use elements, including using tools such as Curtain Walls and Sweeps in “off label” applications

Site Tools

Learn how to generate Topography and edit to include various materials, building Pads and site elements such as Retaining Walls, Property Lines, Parking, and Railings

Phasing and Design Options

Learn about the ability of Revit to show various Phases of a project and how to display element correctly
Leverage Design Options to quickly work out design scenarios and present them clearly

Modeling for Construction

Using Assemblies to better group related elements into single units that can be tagged, scheduled, and detailed as one
Dividing elements into their Parts to independently schedule, tag, filter, and export them
