Coordinating Civil, Architecture & Structure Models with Revit

One of the most common things on a project is sharing design information between teams. this course will help you learn to effectively manage data between Revit and Civil 3D as well as data between other teams using Revit. Software required: Revit 2017, Civil 3D 2016.

Description

Have you ever found yourself trying to efficiently manage models between multiple design firms for a building project? If so, Coordinating Civil, Architecture & Structure Models with Revit is the perfect course for you because you will learn how to effectively manage these models the right way, every time. First, you'll learn how to utilize Shared Coordinates between Revit & Civil 3D models and ensure they drop into the correct geolocations every time. Next, using Copy/Monitor and interference checking, you will see how to manage and change data between Revit models, identify items of conflict between two Revit models, and resolve the conflict between them. Finally, you'll learn effective ways to manage the visual properties of Views in Revit using View Templates and View Filters. When you're finished with this Revit course, you'll not only have a manageable workflow, but you'll also be able to efficiently collaborate and coordinate your effort between multiple disciplines. Software required: Revit 2017, Civil 3D 2016.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Steve Bennett, and welcome to my course, Coordinating Civil, Architecture, and Structure Models with Revit. I am the West Coast CAD Manager at Moffatt and Nichol, and work with teams in their daily use of AutoCAD, Civil 3D, Revit, and more. I've helped a number of companies we've teamed with on projects to successfully integrate the coordination workflows found in this course into real, live projects. After doing so, everyone is excited to be able to have their models in sync. In this course, we are going to establish repeatable workflows that place your models in real-world coordinate systems, manage changes between models from two different trades, resolve conflicting spatial conflicts between model elements, and look at effectively controlling display of linked trade models. Some of the major topics that we will cover include shared coordinate setup between multiple trade models, setup and optimal use of copy/monitor, using the interference tool to resolve spatial conflicts, and view optimization for linked models. By the end of this course, you will be able to confidently bring together and manage models from different trades, and ensure they sync together in the same coordinate systems. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with typical Windows behavior, Revit fundamentals, and very basic AutoCAD functions. I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn these workflows in the Coordinating Civil, Architecture, and Structure Models with Revit course, at Pluralsight.
