This class uses a case study of the Saline Creek Bridge in Fort McMurray, Alberta, to demonstrate methods of using Revit, Civil 3D, and Inventor software to create digital prototypes of bridge infrastructure projects to enable efficient and accurate construction of complex elements. We explore the workflow used for passing model information between Revit, Civil 3D, and Inventor, as well as methods of integrating survey and layout.
- Pass model elements back and forth between Revit, Civil 3D, and Inventor
- Use complex model geometry to create layout points for a robotic total station
- Use Revit component tools to create complex geometry
- Use Revit and Inventor building elements in Civil 3D for excavation planning and quantities
Drew Teal is a Professional Engineer working in Edmonton, Alberta with PCL Construction Management. For the past 6 years Drew has worked with field crews to implement Building Information Modeling tools and workflows to address specific constructability challenges and enhance field execution and efficiency. Drew earned his bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Alberta and is a Revit Certified Professional and a LEED Accredited Professional. As Construction Modeling Manager for the Edmonton District. Drew works to develop and implement BIM enabled workflows through the process of Virtual Construction. PCL Edmonton's team of 4 modelers develops virtual prototypes of our projects using Revit, Civil 3D and Inventor to aid project teams in scope review, surveying, quantity take off, constructability analysis, value engineering, 4D scheduling, progress tracking and quality assurance.
