We'll learn how to harness the 'I' in BIM, information, to allow Revit to perform the tedious tasks in drawing documentation so we can spend more time designing efficiently and effectively. By the end of this Revit training, you'll understand family modeling, creating parameters, using formulas to maximize the functionality of families and setting up shared parameters to use in schedules. Software required: Revit 2015.
Introduction and Project Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Evan Anderson-Decina. I'm a newly registered architect for an AE design firm in my home town of Indianapolis. Currently, I'm doing a lot of visualization and rendering projects in the office, utilizing Revit and BIM technology. Additionally, designing construction documentation inside of Revit is a daily part of my architectural experience. In this course, we're going to learn how intelligent parametric families can simplify our construction documentation and allow us to focus more time on design. Some of the major topics that we will be discussing in this course will include modeling techniques inside of family editing, creating intelligent parameters inside of those families to control geometry, utilizing formulas in our families to further control geometry and information, and customization of schedules that utilize shared parameters from our parametric families to simplify the documentation processes. By the end of the training, you'll be able to understand how to create and build parametric Revit families from scratch along with using shared parameters and formulas to allow Revit to do all the cumbersome and tedious work for us. I'm excited to share these valuable tricks and techniques with you, so let's get started with the first lesson.
