In this tutorial we'll take a step-by-step approach to modeling a large scale precast concrete parking structure. Software required: Revit 2014.

What you'll learn

In this tutorial we'll take a step-by-step approach to modeling a large scale precast concrete parking structure. We'll start the process by getting the ground floor slab in place. From there, we'll lay out the structural grid for the concrete columns that will support all the beams and floor plates within the model. Next, we'll use reference planes to map out the required dimensions and circulation pattern of our modules and floor plates. From there, we'll begin building the model from the ground up. We'll apply some real world concepts and code requirements as we work toward our final product. As we're modeling the structural members and connections, we'll learn a few tricks that will help you avoid the frustrations of the time-consuming and often repetitive task of working with structures. Software required: Revit 2014.
