Session 2.2 – Lab: Global Parameters, Global Control!

One of the most exciting new features to appear in Revit in some time is Global Parameters. What are global parameters you may ask? Global parameters bring the power of the family editor into the project environment! You can now create parameters and label dimensions directly in the project environment. Imagine being able to drive an offset distance between elements in multiple locations around the entire project, or driving instance parameters of several independent families from a single control panel. These are the kind of things that are possible with global parameters! In this hands-on lab we will walk through several scenarios of using GP to establish relationships in your projects. We will explore using them for establishing critical design dimensions and defining code requirements. We will also look at how GP can make your content even more robust by allowing you to control several families at once without needing to embed the families into one another first. If you want to explore the new and exciting global parameters feature, come join us and learn about them the best way possible: hands-on!

Session 3.3 – The Architect’s Dynamo: Getting Non-Revit Users Involved!

This class is designed to show architectural offices how they can utilize Dynamo to involve their non-Revit users in a Revit environment. The class will cover how Revit can extract data from external software for use in manipulating an architectural building design. Let’s do some Dynamo!

This class is presented by Paul F. Aubin and Zach Kron of Autodesk. Visit Zach’s blog at:
