Introduction to BIM Data Suite™

September 22 at 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm CDT

BIM Data Suite makes it easy to extract project data to Microsoft® SQL Server, JSON or XML, allowing your team to create a myriad of reports or to integrate Revit® data into your other systems. Once this data is extracted, your team can leverage template visuals, or generate your own reports that identify areas of interest. This presentation will discuss and lightly demonstrate some of the functionality.

Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstration of data acquisition
  • Description of the value of popular reports
  • Discussion of tools and installations
  • Explanation of how to obtain the suite

In part 1 of this multi-part series, we will demonstrate how you can capture current standards deviations and begin to plan for the repair process.

Learning Objectives:

  • Establishing baseline standards in your modeling environment
  • Capturing active model data
  • Comparing model data to corporate standards
  • Planning for future model repairs

Introduction to the MEPPP™ (HVAC and Plumbing)

October 22 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Revit® is a powerful MEP modeling tool, but requires extensive up-front work by savvy HVAC and plumbing users to create useful project templates and content libraries. A fully developed starter project and library can require thousands of hours to create. The MEP Productivity Pack™ (MEPPP) from CTC Software™ allows firms to skip this process entirely by providing a set of standards implemented throughout a starter project, a sample project and a vast amount of family content based on actual manufacturer data. The MEPPP has been vetted by multiple industry design professionals. Not only is the MEPPP an all-in-one, get-started-now package for firms new to Revit, but for established Revit users it provides advanced features created by Revit experts that are found in no other industry product. This webinar will focus primarily on the HVAC and plumbing portions of the productivity pack.

Learning Objectives:

  • Overview of the electrical features and content
  • Explanation of how to ‘get-started-now’ in Revit for HVAC and plumbing design
  • Demonstration of advanced HVAC and plumbing content
  • Extract equipment information from the mechanical model

HIVE User Management with Excel and Active Directory Sync

December 1 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CST

Managing many users and groups in HIVE one by one can be inefficient when you have more than 10 users. This webinar will demonstrate exactly how users can be very efficiently added, updated and just generally managed. This will allow you to far more easily assign groups, update offices and departments for users via the Excel workflow. Additionally, the user creation and disabling can be entirely synchronized with your internal Active Directory, greatly minimizing your user and group management tasks. Join us live in this webinar to get all user management questions answered.

Learning Objectives:

  • Essential User and group management strategies
  • How to obtain an export of all users
  • How to push changes to users and groups into HIVE
  • Associating Active Directory to your HIVE account

Introduction to Shared Parameter Manager from the BIM Manager Suite™

December 17 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CST

As a BIM Manager, you have better things to do with your time than to manually track down shared parameter files and issues. While the Shared Parameter Manager will not find files for you, once you have them, it will compare and help in the merging of parameter definitions, as appropriate. Additionally, you can manage parameters in the files more easily by updating naming conventions, using individual updates or with a convenient find/replace. This webinar will introduce you to the major functionality, allowing you to discover a better way to manage your shared parameter files.

Learning Objectives:

  • Accessing Shared Parameter Manager
  • Introduction to interface
  • Compare multiple shared parameter files
  • Update parameter names
