Esri is introducing ArcGIS Pro 2.2 Beta with improved BIM and Revit features

The Esri is going to introduce ArcGIS Pro this summer. It will provide direct reading capabilities for Autodesk Revit in order that BIM information is delivered into the ArcGIS platform’s workflows.

This capability will be available for ArcGIS Pro 2.2. Till now, ArcGIS Desktop can read BIM information through Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) files. It is accomplished with the Interoperability Extension, a plugin for data conversion.

The usefulness of BIM data for GIS users

By applying new Revit reading capability, GIS users can perform two things. First of all, they will be able to visualize BIM information in ArcGIS Pro, storing the semantically structured information from Revit via feature classes, which are collections of map presented in a GIS. It allows them to apply the features they need from the data model for other purposes like asset management.

Secondly, a complete BIM model is visualized in a geographic context. This visualization strength will provide more transparency to GIS users concerning what´s inside a BIM model. Similarly, it is also vital to learn what´s not inside a BIM model, as for instance rooms and spaces—both belong to geometric entities well-known with the GIS world and applied for analysis, but not intended for the architects.

Since Revit provides a limited amount of categories, these are all mapped to a feature class to give entry to all related attribute and parametric information. IFC, in comparison, employs various categories which are complicated to control in a GIS.

Esri manages Revit data within ArcGIS by extracting the data and interpreting it as a GIS dataset. ArcGIS can export feature classes into .dwg format that can be obtained in AutoCAD with a plugin known as ArcGIS for AutoCAD. The Revit read capability is a first step in a same process for BIM data.

Building Systems Design (BSD) launched SpecLink Cloud for BIM & Revit users

Building Systems Design (BSD), a trusted solution provider for specification content and software toward the architecture, engineering, construction and owner sectors, recently introduced SpecLink Cloud. SpecLink Cloud will facilitate cloud collaboration and BIM integration.

SpecLink Cloud can make a sea change in the design process by coherently connecting Revit models with specifications, and improving collaboration through the cloud.

User-friendly tools in SpecLink Cloud offer the trustworthy specification capabilities apart from data-rich visual models—all based in the cloud to simplify the collaboration process.

Improved Collaboration: SpecLink Cloud will significantly enhance the communication and collaboration during the design and review process. Project teams will be able to easily align their intentions, both inwardly and outwardly, by allocating information from a common data environment. Collaborators can view, distribute and comment on projects from any web-enabled device.

Unprecedented Visibility: Specifications and Revit models are now connected inside SpecLink. It facilitates the design professionals to view and check alterations in the model as the design progresses. Users get the ability to view implanted BIM object data, and isolate individual objects or layers within the model.

Immersive, 3D virtual walkthroughs are viewed from any location devoid of supplimentary Revit licenses required. This improved level of integration will significantly enhance coordination, effectiveness and exactness during each phase of the design process.

With the introduction of SpecLink in the cloud, NMS ( National Master Specifications) data is now completely integrated into SpecLink, transforming it the first database-driven specification-writing platform to provide integrated specification content for both the U.S. and Canada.

How to use Revit to design facade elements

In this revit video tutorial, you will learn how to generate the façade elements as wall sweeps as well as modeling a custom wall sweep for that.

The Sweep tool in Revit can be used to add a baseboard, crown molding, or other type of decorative horizontal or vertical projection to a wall. You can add a wall sweep to a wall from a 3D or elevation view.

To add a sweep for all walls of a type, you modify the wall structure in the wall’s type properties.

It is possible to schedule wall sweeps. Integral wall sweeps, which belong to the wall type definition, cannot be scheduled separately.

If wall sweeps are formed at several heights and then later on set to the similar height, the sweeps miter at the joins.

While editing vertically compound walls, the sweeps tool can be used to manage placement and display of sweeps or reveals on all walls of that type.

To learn the complete process, watch the following video tutorial.

Some useful AutoCAD shortcuts to accelerate your drawing time

In this article, you will be familiar with some useful AutoCAD tricks and shortcuts which can significantly reduce your drawing time.

CHSPACE: This shortcut is used to shift objects in a drawing from layout to model space with the selection of a viewport to move the text or objects into. It is applicable in both directions.

BURST: BURST shortcut can be applied to break out a block/object keeping all its attributes as it is.

NCOPY: Replicates linework or objects out of a nested object into your existing drawing. It is mostly beneficial for fetching XREF linework into existing drawings.

OOPS: OOPS shortcut can adjust your mistake (as long as it’s a delete) regardless how far back it was. Devoid of applying CTRL-Z, OOPS undoes your last erase command keeping all the works unchanged which have been completed since then.

FILEDIA: Fixing this value to 1, facilitates dialog boxes to open in AutoCAD, fixing it to 0 means everything is finished in the command line.

APPLOAD: This shortcut facilitates you to fix which application to load along with opening AutoCAD.

Work with Images: Rather than scaling and rotating images every time, just include the image into a blank drawing and fix its position, scale, and rotation. After getting image as per your choice, save the drawing. It allows you to add that image as a drawing, rather than the image, and all settings remain identical. Specifically ideal for the images like company logos, etc.

To get more information, watch the following video tutorial.

R / REDRAW: Restore the drawing in the viewport.

DIMBASELINE: This shortcut produces a dimension that commences from a baseline of previous dimensions that is linear, angular or coordinate.

ID: Shows point coordinates all through your worksheet.

Autoscale Setting: With it, your default scale factor can be modified by fixing the Auxiliary scale factor to Plot Scale or Dimscale.
