Precast Concrete Industry Extensions for Revit Structure Suite 2015

Collapse Expand


This class shows how extensions to Revit Structure Suite software can dramatically speed up creation of precast elements. We will look at different precast elements, such as solid and sandwich walls, solid and hollow core slabs, and columns and beams. You will learn how to split walls and floors into producible panels. We will show how to create different connections, such as anchor plates, connection loops, grout tubes, dowels, column shoes, and so on. We will also discuss the automatic creation of reinforcement and the placing of lifting anchors, and we will go through the automatic creation of shop drawings and data for the production in the precast factory. By defining the transport stacks and the production line, we will see the full workflow from design to production of different precast elements inside of Revit Structure Suite software.
