This class shows how extensions to Autodesk Revit Structure software can dramatically speed up creation of precast elements. You will learn how to define families for hollow core slabs with profiles and the strand patterns. These families will be used for automatic dividing of hollow core slabs into producible panels. We will look at assemblies and describe how the same precast elements can be found automatically. The class also covers how to use the split tools in Revit Structure to split the slabs manually. We will go through the automatic creation of shop drawings and data for the production in the precast factory. With the defining of the transport stacks and the production line, we will see the full workflow from design to production for hollow core slabs inside of Revit Structure.

Key Learnings

  • Create reinforcement for precast elements
  • Automatically create shop drawings for precast elements
  • Automatically create precast elements in Revit Structure
  • Create hollow core slabs and split them into producible panels
