Are you working on projects that require non-standard structural elements? Have you struggled with those shapes communicating across your analytical and Revit software models? This class will cover many things, including how to develop custom families that communicate bidirectionally between applications; how to properly map elements across models; how to develop an efficient, fluid, bidirectional workflow to avoid redundancy, increase coordination, and produce high-quality design documents and models; and how to integrate industry-standard third-party analysis tools (such as ETABS software) in a holistic workflow.
- Discover the procedure for developing a workflow between Revit Structure software and third-party analysis tools
- Discover the steps required for creating bidirectionally enabled custom structural content
- Understand organizational techniques for producing a clear, efficient design model and document set
- Discover external tools available for efficiency and productivity gains
Raul Pacheco is currently the Building Information Modeling (BIM) manager at Halvorson and Partners, a structural engineering firm in Chicago. Raul provides training and support, and he is involved on projects using Revit Structure software. Raul's experience expands over 25 years in the use of CAD and BIM applications. In his previous role as the digital design manager in the Chicago office of Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill LLP (SOM), he was responsible for BIM implementation, and he oversaw the implementation of digital design technology, visualization, and sustainable and building performance analysis applications. Raul has worked on various high-rise and high-profile projects around the world.
Tom works primarily as a structural engineer at Halvorson and Partners, but he also spends a considerable amount of time developing BIM software integration tools. He continues to look for new ways to increase office efficiency and bridge the gap between engineer and draftsman.
