Design revisions can be compared to washing machines—the model will spin around until designs are finalized. Capitalizing on the bi-directional link with Revit software helps enable a more coordinated process. This class will dive deeply into the new Structural Connections for Revit software to enable designers to reach a high level of detail. Additionally, we will take a look at the Advance Steel software extension for Revit software, and how only the change of the model can be applied to each software for better-coordinated Building Information Modeling (BIM) models. This session features Advance Steel and Revit.
- Become familiar with the Structural Connection Component within Revit
- Learn how to get to a high level of detail before sending models to Advance Steel
- Discover the ability to better coordinate Fabrication models with design models
- Learn how to enable the workflow to increase design accuracy for site assembly
