Introduction to Revision Manager from the BIM Project Suite™

March 26 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

The revision system in Revit® can work fairly well when revision clouds are used. However, if you try to associate a revision to a sheet or series of sheets without the existence revision clouds, things become tedious. Also, Revit doesn’t natively let you get a report of all revisions on all sheets. This webinar will demonstrate how revisions can be more efficiently managed in a Revit project, how revisions can be represented efficiently on a cover sheet and how revision reports can be obtained by using the Revision Manager tool from the BIM Project Suite.

Learning Objectives:

  • Accessing Revision Manager
  • Introduction to the user interface
  • Easily update sheet revisions
  • How to obtain the suite

Introduction to Detail Link from the BIM Project Suite

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

All too frequently we still get drawings from manufacturers in DWG or DGN format. These may need to be linked to drafting views in our Revit project models. Or, perhaps your firm is in the process of migrating your standards from AutoCAD into Revit, and there are many details that need to be ‘Revitized’. Both of these processes are time consuming, and frequently done in different ways by different people. Standardizing and automating this process can save days of frustration. This webinar will demonstrate how this free tool on the BIM Project Suite can eliminate this very manual linking process.

Introduction to Project Processor from the BIM Batch Suite

May 26 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Projects get bloated and this bloating can cause errors to manifest causing project model crashing. Additionally, on delivery of a model, we often need to clean out any unneeded content. The problem we all run into is lack of time to consistently execute on project cleaning. We wait until it is necessary, which is often at inconvenient times. This webinar will demonstrate the Project Processor on the BIM Batch Suite, showing how we can establish rules that can automate the cleanup process, saving both BIM Managers and Revit users tons of time.

New grading workflows for sites

May 27 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Site grading in Civil 3D is one of the most difficult processes. Any small change in design can have a ripple effect through the site, costing hours of time re-grading. With Auto Grader from the CIM Project Suite, users can define a set of “parent” feature lines, then automatically create and update “child” feature lines based on a saved set of 3D offset parameters.

Learning Objectives:

  • Create and edit site grading models in a fraction of the time
  • Automate the majority of the feature line edits with parking lot, pond and general commercial site grading
  • Define parallel 3D offset relationships, then Auto Grader does the rest

New grading workflows for residential development projects

June 24 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Grading of residential developments can be complicated. Corridors handle the road grading, but when it comes to lots and common areas, Civil 3D falls short. This is where Auto Grader comes into play. By defining “parent” feature lines, such as the right-of-way, Auto Grader will automatically create side and back of lot feature lines based on 3D parameters defined by the user. The same can be done for house pads.

Learning Objectives:

  • Automate lot grading based on design parameter inputs
  • Update lot gradings as road gradings change, automatically
  • Auto-insert house pads based on 3D offsets from the road
  • Automate surface creation, as break lines are managed with Auto Grader

Automated pond grading with Auto Grader

July 15 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Pond grading in Civil 3D typically requires many offsets of feature lines. These relationships between top of pond, benches and slopes are often pre-defined. With Auto Grader from the CIM Project Suite, users can define one pond baseline, then using slope and offset parameters defined in Auto Grader, create all subsequent feature lines automatically. If the pond baseline feature line changes, simply refresh the grading family in Auto Grader and all dependent feature lines will update.

Learning Objectives:

  • Grade ponds in a fraction of the time through rules-based feature line automation
  • Save pond design templates for future use in other drawings and projects
  • Don't worry about managing surface breaklines, since Auto Grader handles it
  • Focus more on design and less on tedious feature line editing

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

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

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
