    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
