Have you ever received a model and wondered what’s inside? Or questioned how the model was put together? Do you have issues with your model performance and don’t know where to start looking? We are not just talking about the geometry but the metadata and how the model has been put together. This session will look under the bonnet of the Revit model and assess the quality and suitability of the data so that a valid assessment can be made of what the model can be used for and if it is safe for you to integrate into your own data set. The session will discuss Quality Assurance and introduce a process/tool that utilizes Revit capabilities for management along with applications such as Autodesk Model Checker and Dynamo, accumulating into a report that details how compliant and suitable the model is.
- How to examine the model and assess if the fundamental modelling methodology of the software has been adopted
- How to check the model for optimum performance and prepare it for issuance providing a Quality Assurance process
- How to utilise Revit’s capabilities for management along with applications such as Autodesk Model Checker and Dynamo
- How to produce a report that details how compliant and suitable the model is
