    One of the core features of delivering a BIM (Building Information Modeling) project is design coordination and clash detection. You need to check clashes between different discipline models to ensure reduced site-errors issues. This lab will focus on creating clash templates that can be reused on various BIM projects to save time and money. In this lab, you’ll create search sets for items such as structural members, mechanical ductwork, plumbing, floors, ceilings, and so on. These will be created by searching Revit element categories that are common to most Revit models. You’ll then perform clash tests based on these search sets. These clash tests will then be exported as a clash template and then imported into other files. This will let you save time when setting up these standard clashes in other files and projects.
