Introduction to Project Cleaner from the BIM Manager Suite

September 4 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

When working through general project cleanup, there are many tedious tasks. Deleting unused views, removing imports, cleaning working schedules… The list goes on. Instead of doing this all manually, perhaps a free tool that can help automate this process. These are certainly tasks we all should be doing in project models on a regular basis, and when sending models to others, or receiving model from others. But who has the time to do this without some kind of automation. This webinar will demonstrate how Project Cleaner can speed up this task for free with a simple to use toolset.

Learning Objectives:

  • Accessing Project Cleaner
  • Introduction to Interface
  • Generating View Selection
  • How to Obtain the Suite

Introduction to View Creator from the BIM Project Suite

September 11 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Generating view in project setup can be a pain, but is necessary on nearly every project. This is especially true when dependant floor plans are necessary. This of course seems like it is more and more often. Other view management tasks like level or phase specific schedule creation are also tedious and happen throughout the project lifecycle. This webinar will demonstrate how View Creator can help minimize the tedium and standardize the creation and management of many view types.

Learning Objective:

Accessing View Creator
Introduction to Interface
Generating Views En Masse

The free Renumbering tool from CTC Software can help eliminate the frustration and make renumbering many things a simple task where users only have to decide order of renumbering, but do not need to participate in mindless data entry for multiple views or elements in the model. Find out how renumbering tasks can be streamlined with a free tool in this webinar.

Learning Objectives:

  • Accessing Renumbering
  • Introduction to Interface
  • Executing Renumbering Processes
  • How to Obtain the Suite

Uncover the most popular tools of BIM Manager Suite

September 24 at 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm CDT

Join SolidCAD’s Technical Specialist, Drew Jarvis on September 24 at 10:30 AM PST/1:30 PM EST as he uncovers the most popular and favorite tools of the BIM Manager Suite.

Learning Objectives:

  • Dimension Checker; A tool created to identify dimension strings using the dimension override options and presents for review. Learn more on how additional filter options can be used to narrow the search results.
  • Family Checker; A tool developed with established criteria that allows you to validate families in a project or run on batches of family files at any time. Learn how you can check many factors such as parameter naming, geometric constraints, embedded CAD use, file sizes and more.
  • Type Swapper; Swapping types, and even families, is no longer a time-consuming process when using Type Swapper. Discover the simplicity of identifying and deleting duplicates
  • Schedule Parameter Resolver; Schedule Parameter Resolver makes it fast and easy to synchronize multiple schedules with the right parameter information by changing the parameter definitions in the schedule to match the parameters used in families within the project, without losing the schedule formatting.

Introduction to Dimension Checker from the BIM Manager Suite

October 2 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Discovering dimension override issues in models can be tricky. Sadly, there is no native way in the Revit interface to identify all dimension that have overrides. Also, there are some pretty dirty techniques that can be used to generate dimension overrides for construction documentation that can cause some significant coordination errors between the model and the documentation. This webinar will demonstrate how these issues can be discovered so responsible (or irresponsible) parties can be made aware of the issues and work to repair them.

Learning Objectives:

  • Accessing Dimension Checker
  • Introduction to Interface
  • Discovery of Dimension Overrides
  • How to Obtain the Suite

Introduction to Family Exporter from the BIM Batch Suite

October 16 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Unfortunately the default capabilities in native Revit allowing saving of families out of a Revit project model are basic and unfriendly. This CTC Software webinar will demonstrate how leveraging the free Family Exporter enables saving families out of a project easily and results in organized exports. No longer will families have to be saved one by one, or result in all families dumped into a single unorganized folder. Now you have control in an elegant tool that saves you time and frustration.

Learning Objectives:

  • Accessing Family Exporter
  • Introduction to Interface
  • Configuration of Export Settings
  • How to Obtain the Suite
