In this class, we will create a mixed-material structure in Revit software, and explore a workflow that optimizes the collaboration between disciplines, and shares the project intelligently with engineers, designers, technical detailers, and fabricators. Using connected or Revit software-specific applications, we will round-trip the project to/from all disciplines, and—using multiple software applications and Revit software as the hub for the central Building Information Modeling (BIM) model—we will develop the detail at each stage, adding reinforcement to structural elements, and adapting to requirements for openings for MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) services proposed late in the stage, and applying and checking steel connections before sending the model to Advance Steel software for detailing and then Graitec Advance Workshop software for production. We will also look at how you can keep track of production status as you link this data back into Advance Steel software, and we'll explore various Autodesk, Inc., cloud services for project visibility and collaboration. This session features Revit and Advance Steel.
- Learn how to use Revit as the central model in a structural BIM workflow for steel and concrete
- Discover tools that enable round-trip project sharing and synchronization
- Learn how to rapidly develop detail for reinforcement and steel connections
- Explore a working Design-to-Fabrication workflow
Joseph is a structural engineer with 20 years’ experience in the AEC industry. Joseph started his career working for the French SNCF Company on the “Concorde Lafayette” train substation. Then, in 1997, he moved to GRAITEC France as a structural engineer doing demos-training-projects on the internal calculation software’s (finite elements and reinforced concrete design software’s). Today, Joseph is Product Director at GRAITEC INNOVATION SAS in charge of all internal products and also provides dynamic analysis and reinforced concrete consultancy to highly skilled GRAITEC customers. Joseph has also taught dynamic analysis and reinforced concrete design for more than 10 years at the French university, Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM).
Carl Spalding: Starting his career as a structural draughtsman for a prominent engineering company in Southern Africa, Carl quickly worked his way up to DO Manager, and then Director of his own design company; developing practical skills born of real-world experience and a refined passion of adopting technology to eliminate repetitive tasks. Since moving to the UK in 2000, Carl has established a prosperous career within the Autodesk channel working with, and supporting both SME and major UK firms in the AEC and Infrastructure industry and gaining a wealth of industry knowledge and understanding of Autodesk's extensive portfolio in the process. This knowledge combined with his strong structural background and his passion for innovation and ambition to succeed, has resulted in quick succession through GRAITEC ranks and is now Graitec Product Strategy Director where he is using his skills to influence the future of construction technology to come.
