Brief Demonstration Of Structural Connections In Revit 2018

This Revit video tutorial is based on Revit Structural connection feature in Revit 2018.

The objective of Revit structural connections is to interchange information on the designed connection among engineers, detailers, and fabricators. This data is saved in the project.

Brief information about connections can contain the following:

• Connection type
• Detailed geometry
• Analytical forces and data
• Materials
• Fabricator identification

By default, connections contain very basic parameters concerning identity data and phasing. Include project parameters and shared parameters to the Structural Connections category to add definite information that can be preserved and circulated with project stakeholders.

It is possible to include tags and generate schedules for instances of structural connections.

All structural connections comprise of two in-built parameters like Approval Status and Code Checking Status.

These two parameters are shown in the Properties Palette. The users fix the Approval Status parameter. The Code Checking Status is filled automatically with the Code Checking engine as soon as the connection is validated.

How To Use AutoCAD For Creating Stairs

Stairs can be created by drafting them in AutoCAD. In this AutoCAD tutorial, one will learn how to use AutoCAD for creating 3d stair.

Initially create a 2d plan for stair. After that, apply array command to generate steps.

Next step will be extruding those rectangles for creating steps. Finally, create railing with the use of extrude path command.

Demo Of Design View Enhancements In AutoCAD 2018

This AutoCAD tutorial video demonstrates the design view enhancements feature in AutoCAD 2018.

Share Design Views function has been restructured in AutoCAD 2018 to provide support to the new DWG file format, and the A360 viewer provides more adaptability as compared to previous versions.

The AutoCAD users can now simply publish views of drawings to the cloud to allow collaboration among stakeholders and at the same time safeguard your DWG files.

The design view tool can be availed from the publish fly out on the application menu or from the A360 ribbon tab by applying the ONLINEDESIGNSHARE command.

The design views are located online through a link that can be allotted with collaborators. Now, It is possible to get your recent uploads from the A360 viewer home page.

By default, uploads are only available for 30 days. But the new version facilitates the users to spread a design view for an extra 30 days at any time, along with an unrestrained number of extensions.

Besides, allocating your design views, it is now possible to post, review, and resolve comments.

CAD2BIM Can Easily Convert Any 2D Cad Drawing Into 3D BIM Model

This cad tutorial video presents the demo of CAD2BIM. This cad program is developed by Handaz (a team of highly skilled Architects, Civil Engineers and Software Developers). It is a web based application that can be used to transform 2D CAD .dxf & .dwg developed with Autodesk Autocad as well as any other drawings into a 3D BIM (Building Information Modeling) model in IFC Building Smart format.

This format can be viewed on Autodesk Revit, Bentley AECosim, Graphisoft Archicad, 3Ds max or any BIM supported software. Handaz CAD2BIM applies libraries like xBIM, netDXF, Rhino3dmIO, Revit API for the revit plugin.

You can apply the following easy to follow processes to create the BIM model :-

• Make your project

• Upload your files
• Choose layers and blocks
• Obtain your BIM model

How To Generate 3D Interior Views In Revit Architecture

In this Revit video tutorial, Pierre Derenoncourt, a renowned AEC design technology specialist and environmental designer, briefly explains how to apply a 3D camera inside Revit to generate an interior view within a model.

In Revit Architecture, a camera can be placed once it is activated from your ribbon, View tab, Create panel. Click the small arrow adjacent to the 3D view, and click camera button on the drop down menu. Now the camera can be set with two simple clicks with camera position and target position.

As soon as the camera is set, Revit will open a new view automatically. This view will be appeared as what your camera see. Generally, we should have modified the view. Ensure modify is active and select the view boundary. Some blue grips on the rectangle sides will be visible. By dragging the grip, the boundary can be resized.

You can modify the movement of your camera around by holding [shift] + mid button.

To get more information, go through the following Revit Tutorial.
