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.
