Plumbing Code Calculations with Spreadsheet Link and Schedule XL

August 5 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Revit® has trouble with complex calculations and the ability to run cross-category math. This can be frustrating when design calculations need to be run. In the case of plumbing code calculations, we need to take the occupancy of a defined area (floor, smoke compartment, etc…) and use these totals to derive the number of different plumbing fixtures that are required by code to be designed into these areas. Many firms run these calculations manually, but this can be done far more efficiently. This webinar will demonstrate how a re-usable workflow can generate occupancy, calculate plumbing fixture counts and generate graphics for use in Revit to present this information in a live model.

Learning Objectives:

  • Establishing a repeatable workflow
  • Generating reusable Excel® templates
  • Leveraging Excel formulas to drive calculations and graphics
  • Importing Excel graphics into Revit sheets

Program Creation and Validation with Spreadsheet Link and Room Family Manager

August 12 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

When working on medium to large buildings, how are you managing your program requirements? How are you checking intended design area? In what way do you capture the number of a specific type of element needed in a specific space? This session will demonstrate one option for managing these key factors, using tools you may already have at your fingertips. Spreadsheet Link and Room Family Manager can be powerful assets when establishing building programs.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to establish a repeatable workflow
  • Generation of reusable Excel® templates
  • Execute object import and data export functions
  • Validate program compliance on demand

New and improved workflows for Pipe Networks

August 19 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Pipe Networks are often clumsy to work with, requiring tedious editing of parts one by one. With the new Pipe Designer and Parts Swapper from CTC working with Pipe Networks is just how it should be. Learn to design in a dynamic excel-like interface, interpolating slopes along pipe runs, forcing minimum pipe cover, and applying rules to parts in a single click. Swapping parts, including maintaining size while switching part type is now a breeze with Parts Swapper.

Learning Objectives:

  • Design pipe networks faster in a dynamic excel like interface
  • Interpolate pipe slopes from a between parts to calculate slope
  • Set a min cover across entire pipe runs in a single click
  • Swap entire pipe networks while maintaining part size, but switching part family

Cleaning Your Library with CTC Express Tools

September 10 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

The process of cleaning and repairing a Revit® family library can be very time consuming. Manually opening the family files and checking them for standards compliance can take months. Changing a standard can be painful if only core Revit workflows are used. This webinar will discuss workflows to leverage tools in the CTC BIM Manager Suite™ to streamline this tedious library maintenance. You probably have better things to do with your time than to manually open and repair families. Let us show you how this can be done quickly and efficiently!

Learning Objectives:

  • Planning for quality family standards
  • Establishing consistent shared parameter standards
  • Automating family content correction
  • Repairing schedule fields automatically

Concrete Pour Sequencing with Fab Sheets

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

Planning self-performed concrete pour sequencing can be a pain in the Revit®modeling environment. The creation of object properties, filters and view templates can be very time consuming. Further, updating and maintenance of these properties, filters and templates can eat up valuable time in the field-planning phases. Instead of manually working through these tasks, attend this webinar to see how Fab Sheets from CTC Software can help automate large portions of this process.

Learning Objectives:

  • Establishing view templates for pour sequencing
  • Configuring Fab Sheets for best performance in sequence creation
  • Experience simplified pour sequenced element selection
  • Generate views and sheets easily and repeatably

New Features in Civil 3D Auto Grader

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

Auto Grader is a game changer in Civil 3D site grading. Through dynamically linked feature line sets, users can create grading families for parking lots, ponds, subdivisions, and more. The latest release features a “template based” grading method, allowing automatic insertion of a user-defined set of feature lines, such as a building pad, along defined baselines, such as a roadway. Other enhancements include more detailed surface targeting, automatic surface boundaries, better family preview controls, and other user-friendly features.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to use the new "template based" grading family to insert user-defined grading designs.
  • Benefit from automated surface boundaries, saving time with surface cleanup.
  • Learn about the improved grading family previewer with user controls.
  • Hear about a myriad of other improvements and enhancements to Auto Grader.

Better labeling workflows for Pipe Networks with Label Genie

October 14 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Pipe Network labeling can be a tedious task. We often need different label styles depending on the part type. When you have 75+ parts in a drawing, that becomes a large task. With Label Genie from the CIM Project Suite, users can define label style mappings based on their parts list. When and entire network is to be labeled, each part and size will received the appropriate label.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define detailed label style mapping based on parts lists
  • Automatically insert unique labels for different types of parts
  • Label multiple drawings and labels at once
  • When Pipe Network labels fall short, automatically insert Mtext or Mleaders on pipes and structures
