Description

In this series of tutorials I'll teach you how get started modeling precast concrete structures in Revit 2014. We'll begin by getting our grids, levels and reference planes in place. Once we've set the stage for the project, we'll begin placing foundations and columns. You'll learn how to use the mirror and copy tools to speed up your modeling work flow and reduce some of the complexity involved in modeling structures. We'll explore how to accurately place corbels and beams at the right elevations. And finally, we'll learn how incorporate a double-T flooring system into our building design. With these tools, tips and strategies you'll be able model precast structures of your own in no time. Software required: Revit 2014.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there. I'm here with Digital-Tutors, an Autodesk Authorized Publisher. And in this series of tutorials, I'll teach you how to get started modeling precast concrete structures in Revit 2014. We'll begin by getting our grids, levels, and even reference planes in place. And once we've set the stage for our project, we'll begin placing foundations and also columns. I'll show you how to use the mirror tool and the copy tool to speed up your modeling workflow and reduce some of the complexity involved in modeling complex structures. We'll explore how to accurately place corbels and beams at the right elevations, and finally, we'll also learn how to incorporate a double tee flooring system into our building design. With these tools, tips, and strategies, I'm confident you'll be able to model precast structures of your own in no time. So with that, join me in the next lesson and we'll get started.
