    This class will show you how to use Google Earth™ to import GIS information using AutoCAD® Civil 3D® and Autodesk® Revit® software. Autodesk Revit and Autodesk® Ecotect® Analysis software will be used to properly analyze, place, and orient the design of the building. Autodesk® Revit® MEP and Autodesk® Revit® Structure software will be used to design the energy analysis and cost analysis for the class. Upon completion of any structural-related building within Autodesk Revit, an energy analysis template will be used to track all electrical and heating costs for the owner’s operational use. A second template will dictate the cost of building construction using Autodesk Revit and Autodesk® Navisworks® software. Upon completion of the Revit 3D model and cost analysis templates, Autodesk Navisworks will be used to simulate the IDP construction process. The audience will see documentation on how 3D IDP is integrated, from the Civil GIS phase to the construction and bidding phase.

    Key Learnings

    • Use Autodesk Navisworks to accept imported Autodesk Revit information and use Navisworks to simulate the construction process
    • Explain how to use multiple software applications to complete the IDP process for engineers, architects, and construction managers
    • Use Google Earth to import GIS data into Autodesk Revit for precise building orientation and placement
    • Use modeling principles to manage schedules, including cost schedules and energy management schedules, to track expenses
