Have you ever wanted to use Revit®-based software to produce point-by-point lighting calculations directly in the Revit model? ElumTools, an add-in for Revit, is the answer. In this hands-on lab, you learn how to use ElumTools in Revit to achieve point-by-point calculation by using the architectural model and lighting families.
- Describe ElumTools and its features and uses
- Produce point-by-point lighting calculations inside a BIM model
- Use lighting families in Revit
- Create fast and accurate lighting design using the I in BIM
As WSP Melbourne Building Information Modeling (BIM) manager and a project electrical engineer, Hisham Khoury has spent the majority of the past 5 years heavily involved in the regional BIM evolution. His work has, over that time, seen him involved in several large-scale BIM projects with varying levels of complexity, including Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex, Echuca Hospital, and Medibank Tower. His role in these projects involved managing BIM strategy, electrical design, model management, and client relations. As part of the WSP Technical User Committee he has been instrumental in setting up many of the standards and tools that are being used regionally throughout WSP Asia Pacific. WSP is constantly striving as a firm to push the boundaries within engineering, and having an electrical background enables Hisham to be at the forefront of electrical engineering within BIM.
