Autodesk Revit 2018 Architecture Fundamentals – Imperial (1st Edition) – An exclusive reference book for Revit users

The Autodesk Revit software is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that works the way architects think. The program streamlines the design process through the use of a central 3D model, where changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets.

Autodesk Revit 2018 Architecture Fundamentals – Imperial (1st Edition) is an exclusive reference book for Revit professionals that briefly focuses on the Autodesk Revit functionality to be applied efficiently during the design process.

Initially, the book explains the user interface and basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. Then you will be familiar with design development tools together with how to model walls, doors, windows, floors, ceilings, stairs and more. At last, you will be introduced with the processes to transform the model to the construction documentation phase.

The book will facilitate the students to generate complete 3D architectural project models and arrange them in working drawings.

The book includes the following topics :-

  • Perception of the objective of Building Information Management (BIM) and how it is used with the Autodesk Revit software.
    • Administering the Autodesk Revit workspace and interface.
    • Dealing with the fundamental drawing and editing tools.
    • Generating Levels and Grids as datum components for the model.
  • Making a 3D building model involving walls, curtain walls, windows, and doors.
    • Inclusion of floors, ceilings, and roofs to the building model.
    • Generating component-based and custom stairs.
    • Inclusion of component features like furniture and equipment.
    • Arrangement of sheets for plotting with text, dimensions, details, tags, and schedules.
    • Production of details.

3D Repo Has Launched New Version Of Its Cloud Software To Provide Support For Autodesk Navisworks And BIM Collaboration Format (BCF)

3D Repo has introduced the latest version of its cloud software that provides extra support for some of the globally recognized software packages suitable for the Engineering, Infrastructure and Construction industries, like Autodesk Navisworks. The new introduction of the cloud based BIM collaboration platform also offers improved support for large 3D models appropriate for infrastructure projects, along with integrated VR functionality to be used for training, safety and project consultation.

The support for native file formats and software platforms will facilitate the users to distribute 3D models, issues and finally the knowledge with the broader project team, in the cloud, within the framework of original model.

The newest versions of 3D Repo’s Open Source, Starter, Professional and Enterprise packages comprise of advanced incorporation with Autodesk Navisworks project review software. With the help of a custom plug-in, data can be uploaded directly to the 3D Repo knowledge base devoid of requiring tiresome process for exchanging files. It performs by decomposing and pushing the native Navisworks project directly into the 3D Repo platform online, rather than preserving it in files like traditional collaboration tools. Therefore, the users will be able to view models and collaborate with the broad project team via their web browser, even on very enormous and complicated projects. The users can access this plug-in on the Autodesk App Store at free of cost: https://apps.autodesk.com/NAVIS/en/Detail/Index?id=5149387925117816371

3D Repo has also asserted support for the BCF file format, facilitating import/export of collaboration and mark up data for issues tracking to software like Solibri quality assurance solutions, Trimble’s Tekla product family and 3D architectural BIM software ARCHICAD.

PCL Construction Has Launched PCL PartsLab To Leverage BIM For Construction

PCL Construction, has developed a robust free plug-in known as PCL PartsLab that will empower the construction professionals to apply Revit data for Takeoff, Estimating, Scheduling, and Project Management. PCL PartsLab will significantly minimize the time necessary for generating and utilizing Revit Parts in construction models. This plugin can decompose slabs, walls, columns and other BIM components automatically into subcomponents maintaining their accessible geometric, property, and metadata.

Therefore, the estimators and other project personnel will be able to employ more BIM in their day-to-day workflow to improve accurateness and minimize risk.

PCL PartsLab helps in leveraging models from the design teams and simultaneously relates those models to reproduce construction means and methods devoid of affecting the completeness of the design model.

With the consolidation between Revit Parts and PCL PartsLab, the customers can obtain more suitable data to collaborate with utilizing the Assemble platform.
