Description

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to model a steel tower using Revit. We'll work from the ground up and begin with structural foundations. From there we'll attach columns to the footings by placing base plates and anchor bolts into the model. Once columns are in place, we'll learn a few ways to model and connect beams to the columns. We'll also explore how to use open web joists as structural elements for the floors and roof of our structure. Finally, we'll place a few steel ladders into our model to allow access up and down the tower. With these tools and skill sets you'll be able to model your own steel structure in Revit with ease and accuracy. Software required: Revit 2014.

Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] Hey there appear here with digital tutors and auto desk authorized publisher. And in this series of tutorials, I'll teach you how to create a steel frame. Working with Rev it 2014 we'll begin by working from the ground up creates a really large BC footings from there will connect some structural elements like base plates, anchor bolts and even columns to start to really bring our structure of verticals. Next will add columns, and we'll also add some lateral and expressing to really bring our structure together and make it structurally sound. Once our racing is in place, I'll show you how we can use open Web Joyce to get a nice even spacing to create a roof and even some floor systems for each level on our steel structure. Finally, I'll show you how we can quickly add some cage steel ladders to allow access in and out of our steel tower. With this workflow and protecting zay show you in this video. I'm confident that you'll be able to work with steel in no time
