Conference Sessions: Revit Fundamentals

Getting started with Revit

Things you didn’t know Revit could do… or maybe you just forgotClick to Open

Level: Intermediate

Over the years using a program like Revit, you develop little tricks; tidbits of useful information (like how View Range actually functions) and sometimes you are working on something else and you remember a little gem you had forgotten (like how useful a view list schedule can be). While we won’t be rivaling Lynn Allen’s 90 tips in 90 minutes (how does she do that?) we will cover quite a bit of ground. Here’s a short list: Linework tool, when to create Line Styles, what objects show above the cut, what objects show below the bottom, how to create a Family Types parameter, line based Families for fire tape lines, Decals, Filters and Browser Organization. And that’s just the stuff you can do in any release. New in this release: the new adaptive divide and repeat, View Templates, custom View Types and exporting Material libraries. Anyone count that? Still not 90? Oh well. I still guarantee that there’s something for everyone here. If you use Revit, I have a tip for you.

Autodesk Revit Architecture Workflow FundamentalsClick to Open

Level: Basic

If you are new to Autodesk Revit Architecture software and want to get a quick hands-on overview of the recommended practices for using BIM in architecture and its associated workflows, then this is the class for you. We highlight several workflows, including conceptual design, documentation, visualization, and multidiscipline coordination. These workflows highlight the capabilities of Revit Architecture, and touch on some of the Autodesk® BIM 360™ cloud-based offerings as well. In this hands-on lab, you walk through exercises that highlight each of the major phases of design, with an emphasis on recommended workflow, while simultaneously incorporating features that are new to Revit Architecture 2014.
