Pre-conference Session    CCS323399
Formwork’s planning, management and working drawings with Revit and the API
Collapse Expand


This class is a follow up to "Speed Up Your Preconstruction Models for Formworks Planning Using Revit and APIs". Last year, the focus was on vertical formwork. This year, the focus will be on horizontal formworks. Concrete structures are the core of the business of Vinci. Therefore, plan accurately horizontal formworks on a daily basis during the preconstruction phase is critical but also very time-consuming. Vinci decided to develop with the help of Autodesk Consulting a toolset in Revit with two objectives:
1. Leveraging already captured Building Information from the Revit model: building geometry, phase, building options.
2. Leveraging the 3D and connected 2D drawings to better communicate with the site.
This class will show how Vinci successfully integrates this toolset into its process (using built-in Revit features - parts, phase -, custom families, data files, Revit API) and how this technology piece is an important step for the BIM transformation of a construction company.
