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.

The BIM Jedi (formally the Revit Jedi): Reducing Revit File Size

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. Rotate & swap values. 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.

Rotate & swap values

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. 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.

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 !!!

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. Revit-Mémo: Revit 2014_Phases_Filtres de phases.

PyRevit v4.3. Okay.

pyRevit v4.3

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. Isolating revit warnings by category with dynamo.

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.

isolating revit warnings by category with dynamo

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.

AGACAD TOOLS4BIM - BIM Software & Autodesk Revit Apps T4R (Tools 4 Revit) Revit-Mémo: Revit 2016_Eléments & Phases pour le métré. Objectif: Utiliser les éléments pour établir des nomenclatures Existant / Projet, afin d'optimiser le travail des métreurs Au bureau je travaille régulièrement sur des maquettes de bâtiments existants à faire évoluer en phase projet, pour aller plus loin dans la démarche, j'ai voulu utiliser les éléments pour extraire les surfaces de murs existantes & projet C'est ma première utilisation de cet outil en liaison avec les phases Les éléments sont a considérer comme une aide graphique pour le métré, par opposition à la représentation graphique spécifique aux plans d'architecture, structure et MEP.

Pour compléter ce message, vous pouvez vous reporter au livre de Jonathan Renou: Revit, Initiation et perfectionnement par la structure (page 242 > Les éléments) / Eyrolles 2014. 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). About Sharing Room/Space Information Between Disciplines. 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. Revit Math & Functions. For use in formulas This page provides the nomenclature for math and conditional statements for use in the Formula column in the Parameter Dialog Box. Syntax for Formulas Formulas support the following arithmetic operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponentiation, logarithms, and square roots.

Formulas also support the following trigonometric functions: sine, cosine, tangent, arcsine, arccosine, and arctangent. Computational Design in Revit Dynamo. Revit pour le BIM - Initiation générale et perfectionnement... Using Navisworks Quantification for early stage estimates. Using Navisworks Quantification for early stage estimates. Using Navisworks Quantification for early stage estimates - Revit news. One user case that I’ve seen a lot of interest for recently is early stage estimates on buildings, this is quite easily possible using floors or potentially other areas from an early mass model.

I’ve seen people mostly using resources to get additional items into the take-off that may not be modelled like skirting boards, such as fittings or the layers in a wall like insulation, brick, blocks and wall ties. Some people however have used ‘Count’ as a way to show costs associated with an item. For the purpose of an early cost estimate you could create a number of estimates based on building type, trade type, or work package type and save this in a catalogue. There seems to be lots of cost estimates available per square meter (or feet for my American friends), from industry bodies and internally in most firms so you can use these to create catalogues.

As a next step you’ll need to make sure you pull the area across from the model or drawings.
