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 necessary 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.

Jordan Watkins is a structural engineer in the Pensacola, Florida, area. He specializes in the design of precast/prestressed concrete structures. He graduated from Auburn University with a bachelor's of civil engineering in 2012. For the past 5 years he has been overseeing the implementation of Revit software as the primary 3D modeling software for his company. In order to make Revit software more efficient for them, the company has been developing a set of tools and plug-ins that can be used by the precast concrete industry specifically. Jordan would love the opportunity to speak at Autodesk University and share the unique process his company is using within Revit software to complete the complex detailing of precast concrete.
