A repeat of a well-received Autodesk University 2017 class, this class will cover how to create concrete lift drawings in Revit software. We will cover the people who need to be engaged; the processes (from developing an estimate to providing field layout data); and the final product of quality-lift drawings that add value for the entire project team. Attendees will learn how the concrete Revit model can become the hub for the whole concrete team and second-tier subs, and how it can also greatly enhance communication with the design team and the general contractor. This class will discuss the technical aspects of creating and maintaining a construction-level concrete model, including families, parts, and the use of pour-sequence parameters. We will demonstrate what information is important to concrete field crews, and how to effectively communicate that through Revit software-based lift drawings. Attendees will also learn how to use geometry in Revit to create point data, and then how to use that point data downstream in the layout process.
- Learn how to use technical Revit tools and tips used for creating CIP lift drawings
- Understand what concrete lift drawings need to provide to make field crews successful
- Learn how to engage people in and develop the lift drawing process to make it successful for all concrete team members
- Learn how to use data in the concrete lift drawings model to save time and increase quality in the layout process
Ryon Pax graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2011 with a Master’s degree in Civil Engineering. Ryon started using Revit in 2008 as an intern at S.A. Miro, Inc. After graduating from the University of Colorado in 2011, he continued to use Revit as a structural engineer for S.A. Miro through 2013. In 2013, Ryon made a career change to the BIM world where he is now working for MB BIM Solutions as a senior project engineer. As an engineer, he works closely with contractors to maximize productivity and efficiency as well as minimize cost through the use of BIM. Ryon currently uses Autodesk products for anything from creating basic structural drawings in Revit to clash detection in Navisworks Manage. He is also involved in developing standards and processes at MB BIM Solutions. Lastly, Ryon was a speaker and attendee at AU 2015 and 2016 and is always looking for ways to take advantage and share is knowledge of the powerful tools offered within the Autodesk products.
