Global parameters have been around for a few releases, and with each release they improve. Yet most users still haven’t started taking advantage of the benefits they bring to a project. In this session, we will discuss ways to utilize global parameters not only to control the model, but also to have the model control details without having to use the align and lock tool. We will also discuss how to utilize information from a linked model to have control elements in the host model. We will examine curb heights, structural framing offsets, top-of-wall locations, and more. This session will share examples relevant to both architectural and structural disciplines, so there will be something for everyone.
- Learn how to utilize global parameters not only in modeling practice, but in detailing as well
- Learn how to extract data from given modeled elements and push the data into other aspects of the model
- Understand why having global parameters in the office template can benefit the entire staff
- Learn how to use global parameters to maintain consistency in a project
Better known as “The Revit Geek”, Brian has spent more than 25 years in the AEC industry, more than 10 of which have been focused on Revit and BIM. After nearly a decade of working with Architects and Engineers to advance BIM in their companies, Brian started his BIM consulting company in 2011 to focus on custom high-level training and mentoring. Brian has clients all over the US and Canada that generally tolerate his sarcastic nature in exchange for his wide breadth of BIM knowledge. Brian showcases his love of talking about Revit, or maybe just his love talking, in a monthly light-hearted, occasionally irreverent, free Q&A webcast, Revit Radio.
