Description

In this set of Revit tutorials, we'll learn how to model adaptive and parametric structural framing families for a light industrial building. We'll begin from the ground and work our way up by beginning at the foundation and slab. Once those elements are in place, we'll begin modeling a parametric rigid frame family in the generic family template. Next, we'll work in the adaptive modeling template to create a flexible tension cable that we'll use as cross-bracing for the rigid frame system. Finally, we'll take a look at how we can use the Beam System tool to lay out and place our purlins and side-wall girts onto the rigid frame. By the end of this Revit training, you'll have a solid understanding of how to create custom families that may not exist within the families library. You'll also have a handful of tips and tricks that will make your modeling experience in Revit an efficient and even rewarding one. Software required: Revit 2015.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there, I'm Pierre Derenoncourt. In this set of tutorials, we'll learn how to model adaptive and even parametric structurally framing families for a light industrial building in Revit. We'll begin from the ground and work our way up by beginning at the foundation and slab and once those elements are in place, we'll begin modeling parametric rigid frame families and their generic family template. Next, we'll work in the adaptive modeling template to create a flexible tension cable that we'll use as cross-bracing for the rigid frame system. Finally, we'll take a look at how we can use the beam system tool to lay out and even place our purlins and sidewall girts onto the rigid frame. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid understanding of how to create custom families that may not already exist within your families library. You'll also have a handful of tips and tricks that will make your modeling experience in Revit an efficient and even enjoyable one. So, with that, I'm ready to get started and I'll meet you in the next lesson.
