This session will discuss how to propel your company into Revit 2017 software, exemplifying the advantages of using a singular model throughout the preconstruction process. Learn how Victaulic’s Building Information Modeling (BIM) group made the transition to Revit software to go from design intent to fabrication spools using the improved functionality of Fabrication Parts. In this session we will take a Revit design model and convert to fabrication parts, make design and coordination changes, define and detail fabrication spools, and create all construction documentation without ever leaving Revit software. Attendees will gain first access to new Revit 2017 software add-ins that streamline this process with prepopulated templates and content libraries. The session will reinforce best workflow practices, and give users the tools they need to take their businesses to the next level. This session features Revit MEP and Fabrication CADmep. AIA Approved

Ralph Schoch is the Revit, Technology, and Internal Support Manager in the Construction Piping Services Division (CPS) at Victaulic, a leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe-joining and fire protection systems. For 22 years he has been devoted to 3D piping system layout and design for global projects large and small. His interest in 3D modeling software led him to begin developing content for Revit in 2009. Ralph develops Revit families and add-in applications that allow engineers and contractors to design piping systems within Revit using Victaulic products. These families and tools have been used around the world from engineering to construction with full fabrication from the Revit model. In addition to Revit, Ralph has experience in Fabrication CADmep, Navisworks, Inventor, Solidworks, and Bentley Autoplant. He is a board member for the Lehigh Valley BIM Professionals Group and is a member of Autodesk Developers Network and Professional Member of AUGI.
