In this class, you will learn how to create the shop drawings necessary for the precast/prestressed concrete industry in an effective and well-presented manner. These shop drawings will have all of the information vital for production, including piece weights, lengths, volumes, and counts, as well as the necessary reinforcement and embedded elements within each element. This class will walk you through the unique process of utilizing assemblies and schedules within Revit software to achieve a desirable shop ticket that any precast manufacturer can use. Finally, this class will show you how to use view templates to maintain the drafting integrity required for precast shop drawings. This session features Revit. AIA Approved
