How Twinmotion 2018 is synchronized with Revit

This Revit video provides brief demonstration on Twinmotion 2018 that will launched very soon by Abvent. The newest version will be very useful for architectural visualization via 3D immersion with some simple clicks of the mouse.

Twinmotion 2018 is supported with Unreal Engine. It is very user-friendly and powerful for architects and designers to generate images, videos, panoramas and executable files.

Twinmotion 2018 offers real-time collaboration with ArchiCAD and Autodesk Revit. Given below, some exclusive features of the software :-

It produces photorealistic visualisations of buildings as well as imports models in a standard range of 3D file formats, together with FBX, DWG and DAE.

The Users will be able to develop background environments out of a library of stock models and textures, and attribute lights.

There are various types of atmospheric properties which range from clouds, rain and snow, as well as ambient lighting on the basis of geographical location and time of day. These are modified through slider-based controls.

There also exist brush-based systems for editing topography or inserting animatiable vegetation to a scene, and a Bezier-based system for pathing animated crowds or traffic.

The software also comprises of a basic camera editor and a set of standard post-process effects.

ARCHICAD 22 is launched by GRAPHISOFT

GRAPHISOFT has introduced ARCHICAD 22, the updated version of ARCHICAD building information management (BIM) software. Given below, some exclusive features of it.

Better Facades: The Curtain Wall tool is entirely redesigned and transformed to a real design tool rather from just a modeling tool.

The new Curtain Wall tool contains an interactive preview, where it is possible to arrange your required facade design with frames and watch it appear on the wall. If it is required to employ a repeating pattern, the pattern can be produced in the preview tool, and can be selected how many times you want it to repeat on each wall. If you prefer to apply the similar facade patterns among projects are required, you can arrange the design in your Favorites folder, where it is easily accessible. To deal with more complex facade design, the frame tool can be applied to sketch or trace a pattern, then utilize it just as you would a regular frame.

One can also obtain 3D shapes and structures as part of your facade, and formed with standard “smart frames” that automatically modify their borders when it is required to cut or relate panels.

The Rhino-Grasshopper Connection: The Curtain Wall tool also performs in collaboration with Rhino’s Grasshopper tool, a visual programming environment that facilitates you to produce generative algorithms.

Practically, it signifies that one can generate patterns that function in the background of your facade pattern, like making the pattern tiles smaller on one part of the facade than on another or making organic shapes within your patterns. It also facilitates you to import photos or images as a pattern, in spite of drawing the pattern freehand directly in the curtain wall tool.

Parametric Building Components: In ARCHICAD 22, the parametric standard elements and non-parametric custom profiles are merged to create intelligent profiles for elements as well as manage their shapes and sizes and their cross-section through BIM parameters. It allows you to model various components (e.g., one column or beam that has to be slightly longer) with the equivalent profile. The auto text label that is created will automatically modify on the basis of which components it is dragged to.

Expressions: The new Expression Defined Properties capability facilitates the users to acquire more organized information from the model devoid of too much manual work. The new capability allows you to utilize any information accessible in the project (e.g., number of rooms, floor area, wall height) in custom expressions to answer questions like “How many boxes of tiling do we need for the floor?”

The product of these expressions is also utilized in other expressions. As for instance, you wanted to know the cost of those tiles, you could plug your first expression into a second expression.

Updates to BIMx: BIMx’s Hyper-model is a suitable way for integrated 2D and 3D building project navigation. But, in earlier version, it could only be seen on a mobile device. This version contains a web viewer that facilitates you to navigate and explore the building from a browser. It allows access to the complete Hyper-model, as well as an auto play mode is included that flows automatically through saved favorite views of the building. To end with, these BIMx walk-through videos are implanted into a website, facilitating the architects to generate online portfolios which comprise of 3D project images.

Autodesk launched newest BIM software called BIM 360 Design

Autodesk introduced new and advanced BIM Software known as BIM 360 Design to allow efficient collaboration in Revit by improving data sharing and permission structure.

This newest application will empower the team members to explore data and information across the BIM 360 Design platform as well as work in concert all together whether they’re a cubicle or a continent apart.

In addition, the system’s updated permission structure facilitates each team to obtain private virtual workspaces and distribute the on-going projects. From now onwards, the designers don’t have to send files to and fro, because all collaborators will perform in equivalent system.

With the help of a new Design Collaboration Module, teams can properly monitor the data exchange, milestone achievements, and deliverables on a visual project timeline.

Progress can be also monitored in an automated visual representation of the design and it will allow all the team members to check what is completed.

BIM 360 allows the users to avail everything from a web browser, making collaborative working well-situated and intuitive.

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.

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.
