The BIM Jedi (formally the Revit Jedi): Reducing Revit File Size. Here are some tips on how to reduce your Revit file size Warnings - These get ignored and pile up and some of these are more offensive than others. Room, space and area errors caused by boundary issues or redundancy is wasting your cpu's time. Any warning is a waste of "space" and "resources" to some degree. View Detail - Do you have a lot of views that are using fine or medium detail level but have scales like 1/16", 1/8"=1'-0" (1:200, 1:100, 1:50)? These views won't really show this level of detail for all elements effectively and you are asking the computer to show it anyway.

Unused Content - Families that are not going to be used at all can contributed to some bloat. Especially if they are complex families that are quite large to begin with. Compact Central - An oversimplification, it is akin to the operating system performing defragmentation of your computer's hard drive. Limit 3D views – Keep the number of 3D views in your project to a minimum where possible. Rotate & swap values | parametricmonkey. Leave a Comment Posted on July 18, 2017 by paulwintour When spatial planning, some practices prefer to use proxy Revit elements to speed up the design iteration process. At BVN, we have developed a suit of families which we call ‘Push-it’. We use this methodology for the early stages of healthcare projects where the schedule of accommodation is critical.

In this workflow, an architectural column family is created which represents a ‘real’ Revit room. The family has a 2D door family nested into it. Obviously, prevention is better than cure but if some families do manage to slip through the gaps, you can use the ‘Family.RotateAndSwapParameters’ custom node available in the BVN Dynamo package (v1.4.2). The custom node first calculates the existing rotation of the family. Therefore, we need to use the ‘Vector.AngleAboutAxis’ node to compare the existing facing orientation to the Y-axis to calculate the existing rotation in degrees. Like this: Like Loading... ASSA ABLOY BIM Door Solutions. The 10 Revit Apps You Should Be Using in 2017 - ArchSmarter - I recently asked ArchSmarter readers what tools they’re using to be more productive in Revit.

Over 75 different add-ins were recommended! I tallied up all the votes and came up with this list of top-ten recommendations. There are some repeat nominees from my previous round-ups (which you can read here and here) as well as some welcome newcomers. So who made the cut? Here’s this year’s list of the top 10 Revit apps you should be using. 1. For the second year in a row, this was the top recommended app by ArchSmarter readers. 2. Flux is like a Swiss-Army knife for BIM data. 3. Another perennial favorite on the list. 4. Enscape is a real-time rendering engine for Revit. 5. Want to import and export Excel data to and from your Revit model? 6. Easily export and print drawings in multiple formats simultaneously. 7. Similar to Xref Transmit, RTV Xporter lets you batch export and print from Revit. 8. Rushforth Tools, or RT for short, is a cornucopia of time-saving productivity tools. 9. 10.

Tally. REVIT WINDSURFER: REVIT TIPS-ENGLISH. Tag - topographie. - MyREVIT. Pour créer le profil de terrain de votre projet REVIT à partir d’un plan de topographie, vous avez besoin d’un plan de topographie au format Autocad (dwg). La marche à suivre impose dans un premier temps de mettre en forme votre plan de topographie à l’aide de Autocad pour pouvoir en extraire les informations qui serviront à générer le terrain dans REVIT.

La première opération que vous devez faire est « UNE COPIE DE VOTRE FICHIER » en cas de fausse manipulation !!! Voici les démarches qui vont être exécutées dans ce tutoriel : Dans AUTOCAD : Ouvrir votre fichier et activer tous les calques. 1 - Délimiter la zone de travail : Dans un premier temps, nous allons délimiter notre plan à la zone de travail qui nous intéresse. Dans notre exemple le plan topo entier fait 941 m x 728 m. Nous allons limiter notre zone de travail à la zone encadrée en rouge (Je l’ai encadrée en rouge pour que vous la voyiez). Pour cela nous allons créer une présentation : 2 - Mettre tout les éléments à l’altimétrie 0 :

LABS – Un collectif innovant. 3.Parameter Explorer · HotGear Project. Shades of Grey: STANDARDISED IDEALS. This is an older, dormant post from last year. I am posting it now as a follow-on to last week's discussion of Duravit families. It's about the largest sanitary ware group in the UK who have made a huge commitment to BIM. Brands include Ideal Standard, Armitage Shanks & Twyford.

This post is mostly about Ideal Standard. There are three distributions available, one through the NBS, one through BIMobject and one through bimstore. The differences are minor but interesting. They are all sourced from the same geometry, most of which is not native Revit. This makes the file slightly heavier, but removes some unsightly seams. It would also make it possible to apply material parameters, but this opportunity has not been taken up.

That's the only colour option that is available so baking it in seems reasonable. Both versions have a detail item placed in floor plan view, which is also based on a CAD import. Ideal Standard are quite right to boast "Ready When You Are". But a word of caution. Revit-Mémo: Revit 2014_Phases_Filtres de phases.

PyRevit v4.3. Okay. We’re officially on 4.3 and here is a list of updates. New IronPython 2.7.7 pyRevit is using the IronPython 2.7.7 now. There has been a lot of fixes and improvements to this IronPython version. The unicode improvements is what I’m happy about the most. pyRevit Usage logging system By popular demand, this feature is back but has been completely redesigned for flexibility and extensibility.

For those of you that hadn’t use this feature on pyRevit 3, the usage logging system was used to log every usage of any of the pyRevit tools to a log file so we could calculate the amount of time saved during a time span. The usage logging system is back. Let’s take a deeper look at the log record. As you can see there are a lot of info about the command and the environment it is being executed under (Revit version, pyRevit version, session id,…). Resultcode This is an integer field and contains the result code that was returned by the pyRevit command executor.

Here’s a quick video on how I was able to create a simple definition in Dynamo that parses through an exported HTML file with all warnings from Revit. It filters for a specific warning type like: “Walls and Room Separation Lines overlap.” and list all elements IDs so that later I can use them to automatically isolate those elements in a view.

Please watch a preview on YouTube: Revit Warnings Parsing and Elements Isolating w/ Dynamo Here’s what the Dynamo Definition looks like: And here is a final result: It was recently brought to my attention that these nodes simply disappeared from my package, which is not OK, but I guess it will be better to just post the source code here: I am using a Python module called Beautiful Soup to parse the HTML file and isolate the warnings. This should do the trick! Here’s source code for the Warning Parser: Zahner - ImageWall. AEC Tech Hackathon 2016 - Metamorphosis - Google Slides. Ideatesoftware.

What Revit Wants: Revit 2013 - Embedded Schedules for everyone. Revit MEP users have had access to Embedded Schedules for a while now. However, the Revit 2013 OneBox version gives everyone the ability to easily utilise Embedded Schedules. Have you used them yet? Embedded Schedules are available for the following Categories: Rooms, spaces, duct systems, piping systems, or electrical circuits (do you know of any others??) Architecturally, it makes the most sense to use a Room Schedule or a Space Schedule. If you opt to use a Space Schedule, this means you will need to add Spaces to your model (Subscription users may want to take advantage of the Space Naming utility).

Once that is done, you can then Schedule Rooms IN the Space Schedule (first image below), and then create an Embedded Schedule for Doors, for example. Check out the images below. A nice little benefit of adding Spaces is that you can also take advantage of Zones (HVAC Zones). About Sharing Room/Space Information Between Disciplines | Revit Products | Autodesk Knowledge Network. Architects and mechanical engineers who collaborate on a project need to understand some behavior about rooms and spaces.

In Revit Architecture, architects use rooms and areas to divide a building model by usage, occupancy, or other criteria. In Revit MEP, engineers use spaces and zones for analysis of heating and cooling loads. When you link a Revit Architecture project to a Revit MEP project, consider the following: Spaces (created in Revit MEP) can be bounded by elements in linked models, in the host model, or in both. Spaces are affected by room separation lines. Rooms are not affected by space separation lines.
