This class will cover the use of filters and view template to create trade-specific views in regards to the display of pipe and duct work in Revit software. Once the basic workflow is established, we'll see how we can automate this very tedious process with Dynamo software, and, finally, how we can use Microsoft Excel to create a dashboard to control the creation and view settings of trade-specific drawings. This is very useful in large projects with a very high number of mechanical systems and trades. We need a central way to handle this information. Also, as projects are ever changing, this method needs to enable changes as the project progresses.
- Learn how to create filters to control the visibility of mechanical systems
- Learn how to create view templates to produce trade-specific views
- Learn how to use Dynamo to automate the creation of view templates
- Learn how to create a dashboard in Microsoft Excel to automate view templates in Revit with Dynamo
I have been working for almost ten years as a mechanical engineer. In the last five years, I involved myself in the implementation of Revit and BIM in our company. Since 2015, I am a full-time BIM Manager and Revit specialist. I have worked on several projects as a BIM Manager and Model Manager, from 100 k$ to 300 M$. I oversee the elaboration of our internal Revit MEP and structural standard. I develop Dynamo scripts to improve model management efficiency. I handle training of our new users as well as honing the skills of our more seasoned modelers. I accomplish this by a mix of one to one sessions, training videos, online webinar and more formal classes, both in English and French.My experience with Revit lead Autodesk to invite me three times to “Inside the factory, Live!” (formerly “Gunslinger”). I have attended Autodesk University for the last three years as well. Since early 2016, I assist Autodesk’s developers team in their efforts to improve the MEP aspect of Revit.
