This class will dig into Revit software with tips and tricks from the low-hanging fruit (symbols, text, and standards) and things to consider (metric, Imperial or soft metric, geographies, and so on). We'll look at using note block content for abbreviation lists and schedules, processing diagrams using custom families, and keynoting. We'll cover assemblies codes, what view templates are and how to use them effectively for consistency from templates forward, sample practices for view naming and browser management in anticipation of exports, and ways of managing work sets in local and linked files to help speed up your system by simply organizing data. We'll also look at how work sets track through links, schema for management, best practices on file sizes, and how to push those limits and possibly a few Dynamo Scripts to assist in management and setups of projects.
- Learn how to establish basic graphics, units, and tasks like abbreviation lists and process diagrams (possible Dynamo scripts), and understand what Revit categories and subcategories are
- Learn how to work with keynoting lists, add to keynote lists (using basic Excel macros), identify assembly codes, and create schedule primers for cost estimating
- Learn how to use a framework for view types and view naming conventions for organization (project browser) and linking federated modes
- Learn how to create work sets for managing content across large projects

Ron Allen is an Arc IV/ BIM Manager with AECOM through the B+P (Buildings and Places) in the Greenwood/Denver Office. <br/><br/>Ron's career has been constantly evolving and refining process and production with emerging technologies. Beginning with BASIC programming and electronics as a hobby in 1984, the pursuit of technology and its uses turned to formal study at Mississippi State University. At MSU he integrated several aspects of his education which included Computer science ( UNIX on VAX systems and SCI Indigo systems, programming ANSI C, PASCAL, COBOL), and Art which included Wave front 3D animation and modeling, Alias, Alias Up Front, Matador and video production, B&W Photography & music. The most prominent education was Architectural studies, it was then he began using Soft Desk (AutoCAD Architecture's predecessor) and AutoCAD. By 1998 he had Bachelors in Architecture with undeclared minors in Art and Computer Science. <br/><br/>His professional career started in Architecture in 1998. In 2006 he started using Revit which changed everything. Since 2006 he has worked production and BIM management on several projects across many Architectural Business lines from interiors, through residential, production housing, commercial, low/mid/high rise, hospitality, medical, military, industrial, themed, and transit.<br/><br/>In his current position at AECOM and an Arc IV/BIM Manager he is continuing the integration and exploration of new and useful technologies including Databases, LIDAR, UAVs, Photogrammetry, IOT, Electronics, VR, AR, Model manager, Model compare, the A360 Suite including Autodesk Navis, C4R, BIM 360 Glue, Docs.
