Are you are still using AutoCAD software to document your projects instead of Revit software? In this class, we'll explore how to migrate your AutoCAD library to Revit so you can benefit from the many capabilities of this Building Information Modeling (BIM) platform. As blocks are migrated to Revit Families, you will be able to extract quantities more accurately, and help lead to a path for full BIM implementation.
- Recognize the appropriate family template to use
- Understand how to import 2D geometry into a family
- See how a family is loaded into a project and how it behaves alongside native Revit components
- See how scheduling works with imported elements
