Revit 2015 BIM Management: Template and Family Creation
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an approach to the entire building life cycle. AutodeskÂ® RevitÂ® Architecture, AutodeskÂ® RevitÂ® MEP, and AutodeskÂ® RevitÂ® Structure are powerful BIM programs that support the ability to coordinate, update, and share design data with team members throughout the design, construction, and management phases of a building`s life. A key component in managing the BIM process is to establish a company foundation for different types of projects by creating standard templates and custom elements. Having this in place makes the process of any new project flow smoothly and efficiently. The objective of this course is to enable students who have worked with the software to expand their knowledge in setting up office standards with templates that include annotation styles, preset views, sheets, and schedules, as well as creating custom element types and families.
Create custom templates with annotation styles, title blocks, and custom element types
Develop schedules, including material takeoff schedules with formulas
Create custom wall, roof, and floor types
Set up a family file with parameters and references
Define family geometry with solids and voids
Create family types for variations
Model specific families, including, in-place families, profiles, annotation, and shared parameters
Students should be comfortable with the fundamentals of AutodeskÂ® RevitÂ® as taught in the Autodesk Revit Architecture 2015 Fundamentals, the Autodesk Revit Structure 2015 Fundamentals, or the Autodesk Revit MEP 2015 Fundamentals course. Knowledge of basic techniques is assumed, such as creating standard element, copying and moving elements, and creating and working with views, etc. Information on Collaboration Tools, Conceptual Design, and Site and Structural Design are covered in additional courses.
AIA Credits: This course has been approved with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for 16 CES Learning Unit Hours.
