We'll review a unique application of Revit and present a few challenges to solve. You'll find it is easy to get site relevant data and learn plenty of tips on how to model a structure like this. We'll build both an as-built pier condition as well as prepare a new robust concept pier model. When you've finished this Revit tutorial, you'll be able to set out on your own design of a marine structure! Software required: Revit 2016, AutoCAD 2016

Introduction and Project Overview Hey everyone. My name is Steve Bennett. I'm the West Coast CAD Manager for Moffatt & Nichol. Some of my latest projects include work for the Port of Long Beach, the Port of Los Angeles, Navy Piers, Beachfront Erosion Control and more. I mentor others in their daily use of AutoCAD, Revit, Navisworks, 3Ds Max, and MicroStation to help them maximize their use of these tools. I manage our application installs, as well as our implementation of new tools and technologies. In this course, we are going to create a concrete marine structure using Revit 2016. Some of the major topics that we will be discussing in this course will include utilizing laser-scan data of existing marine structures to model as-built conditions, learn proper setup of a model so it is tied to real-world geographic locations, utilize common tools in Revit for uncommon applications, learn alternate workflows to model seemingly easy conditions that might otherwise leave you scratching your head. By the end of this training, you will have learned several useful workflows that can be applied to, not only marine structures, but other Revit projects you will deal with in your career. I'm excited to share these tips and techniques with you, so let's get started with the first lesson.
