    You have succeeded with producing great models with Autodesk Revit software. You have built well coordinated plans, elevations, sections, and schedules. How do you move to the next level and take full advantage of the model for even greater efficiency in your design and documentation process? This class will review the concepts, processes, and tools in Revit 2013 to efficiently design and document building enclosures and curtain walls. These techniques apply to similar parts throughout your project. Topics will include 2D drafting in drafting views, 2D detail components overlaid on plan and section details of the live model, and embedding 2D detail in curtain wall panels. Building enclosure details from large-scale projects will be used to illustrate the concepts and process.

    Key Learnings

    • Embed intelligence into curtain wall panels for use in large scale drawings and details
    • Gain familiarity with using 3D detail drawings in construction documents
    • Explain fundamental concepts and processes of building enclosure detailing in Revit
    • Know how and when to balance the effort of 3D detailing with the efficiency of 2D drafting and when to combine the two methods
