With the new tools added to Revit software in the last few years, it has become easier for structural engineers and detailers to create shop drawings and fabrication models for structural components. This class will demonstrate Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows to take a Structural Design Team model into fabrication modeling and shop-drawings production for rebar, precast-concrete, structural-steel, and concrete-lift drawings. Attendees will learn new rebar modeling and annotation features for rebar shop-drawing creation. They will also learn how the new steel-connections tool works in Revit 2017 software and links with Advance Steel software; how to create precast-concrete erection (shop) and piece drawings in Revit software; and how to create detailed concrete-lift drawings in Revit software. We will also demonstrate add-ons that make shop-drawing production more efficient for each structural component type, and we’ll discuss workflows and best practices. This session features Revit Structure and Advance Steel.
- Learn how rebar shop drawings can be created within Revit, and discover the new tools for rebar modeling and annotation
- See families and workflows that enable precast-concrete fabricators to create erection and piece drawings in Revit
- Learn how to create concrete-lift drawings in Revit to enhance coordination and improve field productivity
- Discover new steel connection tools in Revit 2017—and learn how to create steel shops in Revit and Advance Steel
