Revit 2017 – Some exciting features

Autodesk has invented new software Revit 2017 that helps users to create better models and increase their communication and performance skills in the workflow.

 

Autodesk has announced some new key and upgraded features for its main software Revit which is designed for increasing the performance of the software and helping the users to create better models and communicating about the designs. The newest version of this software Revit 2017 is built for the works offered by BIM for the architectural, MEP and the structural engineering etc. The new features in Revit 2017 will be helpful in driving more powerful processes within an increased, multi-discipline BIM workflow.

 

This new software is the fastest and best performing one till now and the new improvements more than 100 functions help the software for keeping up with the most demandable users. It also works faster to display only the visible elements of a view and the hidden drawing elements. Revit 2017 helps in user’s productivity with the various improvements and user-requested updates which simply helps to make the features easier to use.

 

Revit 2017 allows users tools for creating models which can be more precisely and fully represent the things to be built, connect with design and fabrication workflows. The Global Parameters has the features to help in encoding and capturing design that are decided within a model by enabling the users for defining relationships between the building elements. The parameters are used for driving the dimensions and the values in a project. With the help of this software the designers can add the higher level of the detail which is needed for downstream fabrication and building, modeling projects of different sizes and the complexity. The automation of the fabrication model layout and converting design level into the fabrication level of detail elements can be done by the Mechanical detailers. Contractors can prepare their model elements more quickly than before for the detailed coordination in fabrication and installation. The structural engineers also get helpful things from it. As the designers can upgrade the explanation of design intent or the level of detailed for the reinforcement modeling and documentation for the better connected steel design for the detailed workflows.

 

Revit is the base of the active BIM processes for many architects, engineers and construction professionals etc. as they can capture document and share project design data. It is also helpful in the documentation of project’s details more efficiently with the new WYSIWYG Text Editor that has the options for text placements also. It raises the communication abilities in a way that help the users for sharing the data with both Revit and in extended BIM workflows. Data sharing has been simplified within this new software that is improved with new tools for simplifying the reuse of the schedules.

 

Revit 2017 is one of the first BIM tools that support IFC4 and it facilitates BIM interoperability and data sharing within a connected workflow under Revit. Revit also provides the new Autodesk Formit 360 Converter by which users could convert Formit, RFA and SKP files and continue the development in designs in Revit. The collaboration of the Autodesk A360 and Revit 2017 enables the easier use of the acceptance service for project team collaboration with cloud work sharing.

 

The new software of Revit make possible of communicating design with compelling 3D visualizations. It also adds depth and burst to elevations and sections in the coordination views with the new Depth Cueling option.

 

Render with Autodesk Raytracer featuring more accurate settings, video card agnostic and other things more quickly and accurately. After the release of Revit 2017, Autodesk is abandoning some of its software like Autodesk Revit Architecture, Autodesk Revit Structure and Autodesk Revit MEP software by replacing them and providing recent subscribers to each solution.

Some useful cad tips to generate a door dynamic block in AutoCAD

This autocad video tutorial is associated with AutoCAD dynamic block course. By watching the video, one can learn the process in detail to generate a door dynamic block with Flip, Align, Distance and other parameters. It will facilitate the block to be utilized in different circumstances.

 

A dynamic block refers to a block definition that comprises of rules, or parameters necessary for modifying the appearance of the block reference when it is included in the drawing.

 

With dynamic blocks, it is possible to add one block that can adjust shape, size, or configuration rather than adding one of many static block definitions.

 

You author dynamic blocks with either constraint parameters or action parameters.

Advance Steel – Status Control Inside Model And Drawings

In Advance Steel, the users can use the options to provide a Status level to both the drawing and the model elements and it is often described as Key Stages/Life Cycles inside the production process.

 

The Status system remains as part of the Fabrication data inside Advance Steel, it can contain levels/statuses which are included to it through the Management Tool (MT) System. Besides, comment levels are included to approve the status.

 

Various colors can be arranged while generating anything inside the MT. These can then be applied to provide colourisation/highlighting to the model. It is accomplished with the project explorer and the saved Query Feature.

Together with this, there exist a status level for drawings, the drawing system is segregated to the model elements, because drawings may not always remain at the equivalent status as the model, as for instance the model may be left for revision, the elements in the model are updated, but the drawings are not located at similar point. But at some point, they will obtain an adjustment, then a modification in status level of Reissued etc., then modifying to the same status as model at some point.

 

The vital fact is that a “STATUS” level, is not an adjustment to the drawing, it belongs to the present state of the drawing to the overall life cycle to the project, so the two systems are not same, but can be employed in combination to deliver a life cycle management to the system for Autodesk Advance Steel document and model management.

 

To get detailed idea on the different steps and operation, go through the following video presentations.

How to create command aliases for full length command in AutoCAD 2000

Join Lynn has presented an exclusive video tutorial where he briefly explains the simple method to create Command aliases, shortened versions of the full-length commands.

By customizing the commands you can work according to your choices. These commands are compatible with AutoCAD 2000.

Command Alias Editor. In command alias, create a new command alias. Suppose, you want to change copy command and change it to BB. You have to ensure that there is no command in AutoCAD or Normal AutoCAD for BB. Now, if you put BB command in command section and press enter, it will activate the copy command as same.à Tools -àTo do this, you have to go to Express Tools –

How to use TrussCAD, a autocad based program, to draw roof truss section detail

In this autocad tutorial, you will learn how to create the drawing of a roof truss section detail with the use of AutoCAD. You will also learn how section detail can be produced with lines, polylines, and hatches.

The tutorial is created with TrussCAD, an exclusive plugin program for AutoCAD.

It can be used to sketch timber roof and floor trusses in your AutoCAD drawings together with roof battens and roof tiles rapidly and save significant time.

The created lines can be entirely edited in AutoCAD if necessary. Trusses are formed on the basis of the user input and can be edited like standard AutoCAD lines and polylines. All colors of the line work can be modified to fit your office standards. With TrussCAD, it is possible to arrange roof battens on the Roof trusses for both Tiled and Sheet roofs.

The roof battens for tiled roofs also produce the roof tiles.

It supports full versions of AutoCAD 2000 and higher.

To download the software, click on the following link thirdistudio.com.au/TrussCAD

The files which are used in this tutorial can be downloaded from the following linkwww.thirdistudio.com.au
