    This class will demonstrate a workflow where the 3D intelligent model in Revit software serves as a central hub for setting up the analysis and design of buildings in construction engineering. The analytical model in Revit is enhanced with additional properties beyond the already existing analytical properties; the analysis and the design of members is controlled and organized directly within Revit. We are also going to demonstrate how different analysis variants can be set up within different views, like setting up a 3D model for dynamic analysis, separated 2D slab models for calculating the vertical load transfer, or local models for detailed analysis. As all this information is stored within the Revit database, consistency is ensured, structural information can be combined with other data in the intelligent model, and all information can be shared with others via Collaboration for Revit and BIM 360 software.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how Revit can be used as a platform for a complete, always up-to-date and connected structural design-to-detailing workflow
    • Understand how multiple analysis variants can be organized within Revit using Views and Design Options
    • See how the design of members like columns, beams, or slabs is carried out and managed within Revit
    • See how all this structural information can be shared with others through Collaboration for Revit and BIM 360
