Autodesk recently launched Revit 2019.2, the first update to Revit 2019

The most striking feature of this upgradation is the transition to cloud computing. Cloud Models for Revit is the latest feature that automatically coordinates BIM 360 and files and saved them to your desktop. Thus, one can get rid of uploading files manually for distributing them. 2019.2 also allows the users to preserve Revit models in the cloud devoid of worksharing them. Now, the individual users will be able to accumulate their models on BIM 360.

Simultaneously, Autodesk has introduced a preview of its Cloud Model Upgrade, so that BIM 360 project admins get the ability to automatically update cloud-stored files to the most updated version of Revit. The upgrade signifies that admins can modify the file formats with a single click of mouse without requiring to go into the files and manually alter them. The current preview alters projects from Revit 2018.3 to Revit 2019 format.

With Site Collaboration the users can connect topography from Civil 3D into Revit as well as arrange building pads and subregions on complex surfaces.

The update also facilitates superior automation of the design-to-fabrication process for concrete. Extended CAM Export facilitates the users to connect cast-in-place/precast concrete projects to automatic fabrication processes, and the Custom Fabric Sheet (CFS) feature facilitates the users to automatically transform reinforcements into custom fabric sheets to make the design-to-fabrication process automatic. There exist more families of hollow concrete slabs, with 13 supplementary types of precast hollow-core slabs.

Besides, Revit 2019.2 comes up with two smaller enhancements directly from the user ideas page—the inclusion of a zoom function in schedule views, and the elimination of the “Element is too small on screen” warning. The first feature aids in the users to view more intimately at their schedules rather straining their eyes, whereas the second facilitates them to shift the objects very short distances devoid of any intrusion from the program.

How to manage projects with BIM efficiently

Building information modeling (BIM) process gains huge popularity among the architecture and construction industry. Since, BIM is extensively used by several architectural and engineering firms into their practice, it becomes difficult for the project managers to control the project teams employing BIM.

Given below, some vital tips to manage project with BIM in an efficient manner.

Recognize the method

BIM stands for a collaborative method of generating coordinated, internally logical and quantifiable information concerning a building with a central system of 3d models in spite of a separate set of 2d drawings. It is a new way of working that simplifies the workflow with an unified approach.

Know the competencies of the tool

A Revit model is much more than a 3d model, it contains a database of information which can be used for constructability analysis, quantity take-offs, performance analysis, facilities management and so on. Working in a model based framework makes sure greater precision; as components change in the plan, they proceed in elevations and sections. When the windows are provided in the exterior wall, window schedules are updated. Prompt 3d visualization facilitates taking decisions in advance. As a minimum, find out how to open, close and navigate through a model, cut sections and print drawings.

Follow the 60/40 rule

BIM workflow generally comprises of two steps: modeling and documentation. Accept about 60% of the time for modeling, rest for generating and annotating drawings. Set up design and documentation benchmarks and decide on the level of detailing for different elements before starting modeling. Should the model be applied for construction documentation or fabrication and assembly? Prior to add a wall, ascertain its width, make and fire rating. Fix the rules at the beginning.

Have a clash detection competition

A Revit model can easily determine the spatial clashes among different systems in the building, like ducts moving through beams or lights hitting sprinklers. It facilitates saving time and cost because of less errors all through the construction. While Revit facilitates fundamental diagnostics, software like Navisworks can recognize and document conflicts comprehensively. Arrange every other coordination meeting to be virtual, discuss with the model.

Wild – The best platform for immersive collaboration

The Wild, a new and innovative virtual reality software has introduced a new Revit Add-On feature (still in testing phase) to facilitate the Revit users to have a direct path to this innovative VR solution.

The Wild is supported with the cloud-based immersive collaboration platform, The Wild, now provides support to the designers and architects who perform with Autodesk Revit so that they can deliver their BIM models directly into The Wild for collaboration..

This Revit Add-In will simplify the workflow for teams who deal with architecture, engineering, and construction by facilitating them to import and automatically optimize their Revit model for streaming with a single mouse click

The new feature will automatically generate a collection of assets from the components of the Revit file, simplying the workflow from Revit to The Wild.

Collaborating on spatial designs in 2D normally becomes complicated since not all professionals and clients have the ability to understand the spatial definitions and requirements of real buildings under design and construction. With Wild, all the project stakeholders can virtually populate a planned space as a team and collaborate and understand spatial designs together.

Wild allows the Revit users to make more effective communication as well as more confident decisions, and better align teammates and expectations for the job.

Streaming your Revit models into The Wild for illustration and assessment will basically reanalyze expectations for the design process.

After shifting from visualizing ideas to experiencing them, new levels of comprehension and alignment can be obtained, expanding our strength to discover and focus on the best solutions in the initial phases of design all the way through construction.

Details about Level of development (LOD) in BIM

Level of development (LOD) means a supposition with different definitions and executions. The level of development characterizes the content and reliability of BIM components at various phases or milestones. The “content” signifies geometric information, structured data and linked documentation.

The reliability signifies what has been utilized and to what extent the downstream users of the information can rely on the precision and quality of that content.

LOD is categorized as follow :-

LOD 100 – Concept Design

3D model of the building is formed to demonstrate the information on basic level. As a result only conceptual model can be produced in this phase. Several parameters ranging from area, height, volume, location and orientation are characterized.

LOD 200 – Schematic Design

General model where components are modeled with guess quantities, size, shape, location and orientation. Non-geometric information can also be added to the components of the model.

LOD 300 – Detailed Design

Exact modeling and shop drawing where components are characterized with certain assemblies, proper quantity, size, shape, location and orientation. Here, non-geometric information can also be added to the components of the model.

LOD 350 – Construction Document

It comprises of model detail and component which demonstrate how building components interacts with several systems as well as other building components with graphics and written definitions.

LOD 400 – Fabrication & Assembly

The components of the model are modeled according to certain assemblies with complete fabrication, assembly, and detailing information other than exact quantity, size, shape, location and orientation. Non-geometric information to the model components should also be added.

LOD 500 – As-built

The components are modeled similar to constructed assemblies for maintenance and operation. Other than actual and accurate in size, shape, location, quantity and orientation, non-geometric information is also added to the components of the model.

How To Use Revit 2017 For Formwork Shoring Or Pillar

Go through the following Revit video tutorial that shows how to use Revit 2017 for formwork shoring or formation of pillar.

Shoring refers to the method of providing support to a building, vessel, structure, or trench with shores (props) when there are possibilities for collapsing as well as in repairing work or reformation. Shoring may vary as vertical, angled, or horizontal.

Shoring is generally utilized at the time of installing the foundation of a building. A shoring system like piles and lagging or shotcrete will deal with the adjacent loads unless the underground levels of the building are built up.
