How construction professionals can build pile wall systems by integrating Revit 2017 and Dynamo extension for Revit

This Revit tutorial briefly explains how to apply Revit 2017 together with Dynamo for building a piled wall system. This method will be useful for contig or secant piled wall systems.

Dynamo refers to a visual programming language extension within Revit softwar. Dynamo extension can automate tedious manual Revit tasks. With Dynamo, the users can efficiently manoeuvre data, sculpt geometry, delve into design options, automate processes, and generate links amid numerous applications. Dynamo is free and supports Revit 2015, 2016, and 2017.

While developing Piled wall systems inside Revit, it requires to generate a structural wall and next 2D detail in plan to represent a piled wall system or usually set each male and female pile as well as apply the array or copy commands.

But the process becomes tedious when curves and turns are conflicted inside the path. Dynamo can easily resolve this issue and be applied for sheet piling along with secant and contiguous systems.

Vectorworks Architect 2018 is just launched with some exciting features

Vectorworks is a leading BIM design tool specifically developed for all designers, architects, landscape architects, stage lighting designers, or anyone to design almost anything. The architects can utilize this all-in-one program to fulfill their requirements.

The architects can use it for different purposes like design concept, client presentations, final construction documents devoid of requiring any other programs. It performs as an in-depth presentation/drawing package as well as a highly sophisticated 3D modeler.

It is also an outstanding tool for just producing block layouts that transform into the buildings later on or making a simple design for a curved railing. To make improved designs, it is possible to generate shapes without limits with the help of subdivision modeling.

The most updated version is Vectorworks Architect 2018. It contains the following exclusive features :-

Several Drawing Views: The users can get several views of their on-going project simultaneously. Just click an icon then break up the screen as per choice. Now, it is possible to view the modification of the 3D model when the floor plan is revised. It is not necessary to switch alternatively among saved views at the time of updating and making changes.

Live Editing of Elevations and Sections: With Vectorworks Architect 2018, the architects will be able to edit Elevations and sections live. It is now possible to edit an elevation whereas actually looking at the elevation.

Resource Manager: With resource manager, the users can easily get access to numerous pre-drawn items. These may range from chairs, appliances, wall types or really anything. The users can create their own or import others.

Go through the following video, to be familiar with the new modeling features in Vectorworks Architect 2018.

Title Blocks: The title block feature becomes more comprehensive and automated. With this newest version, the users will be able to arrange their sheets according to their choice. Now the printed copies of the drawings can be delivered to the job site directly. And each one of those drawings normally contains a border and a title block with dates, names, responsible person and addresses.

IMSI Design launched New DesignCAD 3D MAX 2018

IMSI®/Design, just launched DesignCAD 3D MAX 2018. This newest version provides crucial design improvements in 3D modeling, 2D drafting, rendering and visualization, and entire usability.

DesignCAD 3D MAX 2018 includes the following exclusive features :-

• 3D Printing Improvements – Three new commands are included to examine for water resistant 3D models. These new commands (which can also be operated from BasicCAD) facilitate the users to check whether a 3D solid model is water resistant or not; verity if a Boolean operation will lead to a water resistant model; and appraise a Solid Surface for leaks and for the existence of additional facets which may prevent water tightness of the 3D model. A water resistant model plays an important role while making 3D printing of your designs.

• New Icon Scaling – With this option, the users will be able to scale your program icons from any place among 16 to 64 pixels.

• Rendering Enhancements – A host of rendering enhancements are provided to 3D Max 2018 for getting a dynamic and realistic viewing of 3D models.

These improvements comprise of Mixed Mode Rendering, that facilitates a combination display of shaded solid and visible wireframe; Normals Render, an OpenGL render mode that demonstrates facets, planes and grids in diverse colors depending on whether they belong to inward or outward facing, selected or unselected; and superior rendering of Mirrored solids. Besides, DesignCAD’s Solid 3D primitives are revamped in order that they are always produed with outward-facing Normals.

• New Dynamic Scaling of Text – This new Text option transforms the drawing of 2D and 3D text more reliable with one another. Now both types of text are drawn at a preset size, or drawn in order that they scale proportionally among the first and second points set.

• AutoCAD 2018 Import/Export Support – With DesignCAD 2018, it is possible to import DWG and DXF files in AutoCAD 2018 format, as well as Export DWG and DXF files to AutoCAD 2018 format.

• New AutoHatch Feature – DesignCAD 2018 allows the users to automatically generate a hatch fill pattern in 2D shapes devoid of running the Hatch, Hatch Line, or Hatch Fill individually. The present AutoHatch pattern can be set from the AutoHatch Settings in the Options menu; the pattern for an obtainable object is modified from the AutoHatch Settings in the Info Box’s toolbar.

• Improved NURB Curve Control – To deal with 2D and 3D curves, this new command sets a cage of control points around the curve to keep superior control over the curve’s geometry. It supports both quadratic and cubic rules.

• Greater UI and Usability – Improvements contain menu and dialog boxes now scale to the Windows text scaling setting; a better Purged Unused Blocks command; a better Save As command as well as Info Box.

Availability and Pricing: One can download DesignCAD 3D MAX 2018 form IMSI/Design company websites – and

How to perform MEP modeling in a jobsite with Revit

In this Revit video tutorial, you will learn how to use Revit for creating MEP modeling of a site office, canteen, outdoor switch room with distribution boards, transformers, diesel generator and fuel tank.

Given below, some useful features of Revit for MEP modeling :-

• Mechanical Systems: Create the design of various types of mechanical systems like duct system to fulfill the heating and cooling requirements of the building. With the use of various tools, form duct systems to arrange air terminals and mechanical equipment in a project. By applying automatic system creation tools, generate duct routing layouts to unite the supply and return system components.

• Electrical Systems: Develop electrical systems (circuits) to arrange devices, lighting fixtures, and electrical equipment in a project.

• Piping Systems: Develop piping systems with the arrangement of mechanical components in a model and attribute them to a supply or return system. Then, with the use of various layout tools, define the most recommended routing for the piping that relates the system components.

• MEP Fabrication Detailing: Arrange LOD 400 content from the Autodesk Fabrication products (CADmep, ESTmep, and CAMduct) inside Revit MEP to generate a more coordinated model. Produce a perfect model for detailers within construction firms that reflects the intended installation.

• Spaces: Arrange spaces in all the sections of the building model to preserve values applied for accomplishing heating and cooling load analysis on the building model.

• Zones: With the use of the zone tool, it is possible to identify spaces to be managed with environmental control systems like heating, cooling, and humidity control systems. It facilitates you to execute load balancing and analysis procedures on a building model.

• Use the System Inspector: System Inspector is applied to observe the properties for a selected duct or pipe system.

To learn the process for MEP modeling, watch the following video tutorial.
