In this class, you'll discover a practical structural workflow around Revit software that takes advantage of rich engineering data, and you'll learn how to share the project intelligently with engineers, designers, detailers, and fabricators, essentially utilizing the "I" of Building Information Modeling (BIM). This process will create a better-connected BIM workflow that integrates structural analysis data, real 3D reinforcement, and steel connection verification in Revit. When transferring intelligent structural analysis data from an engineering software to Revit, combined with powerful Revit add-ons, you can easily automate placement of 3D bars based on United States codes and drawing generation of such details. We'll also see how Revit and BIM 360 can help you produce data ready to fabrication. Revit engineering models contain a large amount of extremely useful data, and we'll see how it can be beneficial to incorporate all stakeholders up to the fabricators in the BIM workflow.
- Understand the value of connecting your engineering analysis model into your Revit workflow
- Understand the benefit of transferring your intelligent constructability data from analysis and design software to Revit, and vice versa
- Learn how to create a connected and advanced BIM workflow to utilize advantages that only intelligent BIM data offers
- Explore a working design-to-fabrication workflow powered by BIM 360

Joseph is a structural engineer with 20 years’ experience in the AEC industry. Joseph started his career working for the French SNCF Company on the “Concorde Lafayette” train substation. Then, in 1997, he moved to GRAITEC France as a structural engineer doing demos-training-projects on the internal calculation software’s (finite elements and reinforced concrete design software’s). Today, Joseph is Product Director at GRAITEC INNOVATION SAS in charge of all internal products and also provides dynamic analysis and reinforced concrete consultancy to highly skilled GRAITEC customers. Joseph has also taught dynamic analysis and reinforced concrete design for more than 10 years at the French university, Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM).
