Our class focuses on LA Metro’s current transit project located in downtown LA. On the Regional Connector Transit Corridor Project (RCTC) we were able to integrate software from Autodesk (Revit, Civil 3D, Navisworks, BIM 360 Glue), and a variety of other platforms. In this presentation we will share some of the “secrets” on bringing these programs together with efficient and manageable workflows. RCTC is a 1.55 billion underground Light Rail Transit extension that connects Metro’s existing Gold Line Little Tokyo/Arts District Station to its 7th Street/Metro Center Station in downtown LA. This connection will serve as a major link to the current and future LA transit system. We will show why BIM was the right choice for final design of the project, and we will demonstrate our workflows between Revit and Civil 3D, Revit and AutoSprink, how we used Navisworks for clash detection, BIM360 Glue and BIM 360 Field for model viewing.
