Connected structural workflows are no longer science fiction but a stark reality that is delivering newfound accuracy and performance. In this class, we will show what a connected structural Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow in Revit software looks like, which will include exploring augmented reality on site. You will see firsthand how intelligent BIM data in a connected workflow can enable common structural elements (such as footings, columns, and beams) to be quickly designed to local codes, and automatically modeled, detailed, and scheduled all within Revit software. We will explore the essential steps that enable you to utilize default or your own custom structural Revit families to automate the creation of designed 3D reinforcement cages in Revit software, while using standard Revit families to configure automated drawings, views, bar schedules, and comprehensive design reports. You will take a virtual trip to site to visualize the reinforcement of your Revit project model using your mobile device without leaving your seat in the class. This session features Revit, Revit Structure, and Robot Structural Analysis. AIA Approved

Carl Spalding: Starting his career as a structural draughtsman for a prominent engineering company in Southern Africa, Carl quickly worked his way up to DO Manager, and then Director of his own design company; developing practical skills born of real-world experience and a refined passion of adopting technology to eliminate repetitive tasks. Since moving to the UK in 2000, Carl has established a prosperous career within the Autodesk channel working with, and supporting both SME and major UK firms in the AEC and Infrastructure industry and gaining a wealth of industry knowledge and understanding of Autodesk's extensive portfolio in the process. This knowledge combined with his strong structural background and his passion for innovation and ambition to succeed, has resulted in quick succession through GRAITEC ranks and is now Graitec Product Strategy Director where he is using his skills to influence the future of construction technology to come.
Joseph is a structural engineer with 20 years’ experience in the AEC industry. Joseph started his career working for the French SNCF Company on the “Concorde Lafayette” train substation. Then, in 1997, he moved to GRAITEC France as a structural engineer doing demos-training-projects on the internal calculation software’s (finite elements and reinforced concrete design software’s). Today, Joseph is Product Director at GRAITEC INNOVATION SAS in charge of all internal products and also provides dynamic analysis and reinforced concrete consultancy to highly skilled GRAITEC customers. Joseph has also taught dynamic analysis and reinforced concrete design for more than 10 years at the French university, Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM).
