Terry Foster our BIM/Revit Manager presented the following training sesson at the Manchester Revit User group MRUG meeting on Thursday 25th May 2017.
Session 1 – Unusual Modelling Techniques for efficient BIMs. Demonstrating how Calderpeel are reducing modelling time and file sizes to maximize efficiency in practice and maintain a standard procedure for all BIM 1 &2 Projects in line with recommendations laid out in BS1192 and PAS 1192-2.
Revit Tips and Tricks – Improving Modelling Speed and Minimizing File Sizes.
Part 1: Introduction – Terry Foster, BIM/Revit Manager Calderpeel Architects
Part 2: Surface Sub Elements – ‘Ramp/Roof/Floor’ Explaining how to create sub regions with Floor and Roof Elements to achieve tricky elements like graded/ ramped approach floors/ramps and tapered insulation roofs with variable components.
Part 3: Curtain Wall tricks - elaborating on the use of curtain wall as a host for complex timber features and carcase models. Focusing on modelling tricks to speed up the process save memory.
Part 4: 3d details – Walls ‘Create Parts’ for walls used as a design tool to demonstrate exploded details and 3d representation.
