How to design wall structure (material) diagram in Revit

In this Revit video tutorial, you will know how to design a little wall structure diagram or wall material diagram by applying Revit 2017.

This wall structure diagram will contain common brick, plywood & sheathing grade, light gauge steel framing, thermal air layer, gypsum wall board etc.

To know the complete modeling process, go through the following video tutorial.

How to create parametric walkway in Revit

In this revit video tutorial, you will be familiar with the necessary steps to model a parametric walkway (twisted looking structure with triangular grid) in Revit.

It begins like a conceptual mass family. You will learn the methods essential for creating model of a spline with triangular profiles at various angles as well as transform it into a form.

Then you will gather knowledge on how to create the model of a curtain panel based family and load it into the mass. Finally, you will learn how the mass is loaded into the project with the addition of a concrete strip at the floor level.

While generating a mass family in the Family Editor, it is possible to load the family into a project, and set instances of the mass family in the project.

Click NewConceptual Mass. In the New Conceptual Mass dialog, opt ofr Mass.rft, and click Open.

The file is available in the following folder:
%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Autodesk\\Family Templates\\Conceptual Mass

The conceptual design environment opens. The Forms tool and other tools are applied to generate the mass.

In the tutorial, the following shortcuts are used to accelerate the speed of the work.

UN – Project Units
CS – Create Similar
RP – Reference Plane
Al – Align LL – Level

To view the complete processes, go through the following revit tutorial.

BricsCAD Shape – A handy tool for designers and architects

Bricsys, the leading developer of cad software, has introduced a new 3D conceptual modeling tool that is specifically designed for architects to improve the speed of their 3D design work.

With this conceptual modeling tool, the architects and engineers can simplify their schematic design work.

The multi-functional “Shape” tool is applied to generate walls, slabs, structural elements and more. Direct modeling features allow you to drag, connect, push/pull and extrude as per your choice. Wall connections are automatically mitered for you.

With BricsCAD, the designer can create their ideas in 3D easily with a series of common architectural components and materials together with straightforward shape generation tools. BricsCAD employs the similar parametric and modeling engine (ACIS) that is found in Bricsys’ BricsCAD Platinum CAD software.

BricsCAD Shape files can be opened directly in Bricsys’ BIM platform, BricsCAD BIM to speed up the BIM workflow. BricsCAD Shape is totally free to use.

It comprises of a library of materials, textures and pre-built 3D components. The included collection of doors and windows can be utilized separately. The users can also generate their own custom versions. Form your model according to your preference with the Visual Styles panel in Shape.

Shape is only compatible with Windows (later on it will work with macOS and Linux). It is necessary for the users to sign up for a Bricsys account and download the program to test it. Not just for this reason, BricsCAD offers more material and library content as compared to the free version of FormIt.

How to use Revit for creating model of a Parametric Tensile Canopy

In this Revit video tutorial, you will learn the process for making the model of a Parametric Tnesile Canopy. As the model will be a parametric family, it is possible to modify everything via parameters. It will be modeled as conceptual mass.

To create the model the following processes are followed :-

Initially, arrange the reference planes and include all the dimensions to attribute the parameters.

After that start modeling the construction poles and lock them in proper position.

In the end, model the fabric portion and save the file.

To speed up the modeling process, the following shortcuts are used :-

UN denotes Project Units
CS denotes Create similar
RP denotes Reference Plane
Al denotes Align

To get the detail modeling processes, go through the following video tutorial.

How to use revit for finding out the pipe sloping in isometric drawing

This revit video tutorial is presented to teach you how to view isometric drawing of piping and determine the measurement map of pipe as well as identify the material symbol of pipe isometric drawing.

You will also learn how to determine the sloping of pipe in isometric drawing, types of valves in piping, types of vales in piping joints, types of pipe fittings materials.

Slope Editor in Revit can be used to assign a slope to whole system or to particular parts of a system. In case of using large slope values, it becomes easier to draw the piping at the preferred angle in a section view or an elevation view.

Watch the following video tutorial to learn the detail process.
