The traditional approach calls for engineers to produce both plan view and riser diagrams for plumbing work. This method calls for duplicated information. This is both wasteful and error prone. To achieve a connected BIM (Building Information Modeling) project, we need a way to connect the plan views to the riser diagrams. This can be accomplished using 3D riser diagrams. This demo will cover how to use Revit tools to produce 3D riser diagrams. We will discuss all the benefits to using 3D risers and how to get your project managers on board with using them for construction documents. We will provide examples of how to create, annotate, and manipulate 3D risers to plot clearly and accurately. We will also touch on the typical issues and how to fix or prevent those issues from happening.
- Discover how to persuade your project manager to use 3D risers in lieu of the traditional flat risers
- Learn how to create and annotate 3D views
- Discover typical struggles and learn how to remedy or prevent them
- Discover how to make this a standard practice
Jessica Johnson graduated from Milwaukee School of Engineering in 2016 with a bachelor’s in Architectural Engineering with an emphasis in Building Mechanical Systems. While studying she completed multiple internships where she began designing mechanical systems and utilizing Revit skills. After obtaining her degree, she accepted an offer to work for EXP as a Mechanical Designer. Jessica is currently working towards earning her PE. Since becoming a part of the EXP team, she has become a Revit Mechanical Lead and Model Manager. She trains fellow colleagues on the Revit best practices and skills. Jessica has been using Revit for six years now and is very eager to continue to learn and teach others about new Revit tools and skills.
