Learn to take your conceptual designs beyond the marketing image through to fabrication. This class describes the solution that we implemented for one of our clients recently where we took an Autodesk Revit conceptual mass to fabrication using Autodesk® Inventor® software. The class will demonstrate the workflow developed to take us from the design brief (a marketing image and five sections), into the conceptual massing environment in Revit software. Here we defined, panelized, and optimized the façade design before coordinating with the proposed steelwork design. This coordinated design was then taken into Inventor to create the fabrication detail necessary for automated fabrication and delivery to site. The final stage of this workflow saw the panels transferred back into Revit to coordinate and design the final supporting bracketry. This class showcases the workflow from Revit to Inventor and back again and highlights the benefits of adaptive components and massing tools to realize your designs.
