Esri is introducing ArcGIS Pro 2.2 Beta with improved BIM and Revit features

The Esri is going to introduce ArcGIS Pro this summer. It will provide direct reading capabilities for Autodesk Revit in order that BIM information is delivered into the ArcGIS platform’s workflows.

This capability will be available for ArcGIS Pro 2.2. Till now, ArcGIS Desktop can read BIM information through Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) files. It is accomplished with the Interoperability Extension, a plugin for data conversion.

The usefulness of BIM data for GIS users

By applying new Revit reading capability, GIS users can perform two things. First of all, they will be able to visualize BIM information in ArcGIS Pro, storing the semantically structured information from Revit via feature classes, which are collections of map presented in a GIS. It allows them to apply the features they need from the data model for other purposes like asset management.

Secondly, a complete BIM model is visualized in a geographic context. This visualization strength will provide more transparency to GIS users concerning what´s inside a BIM model. Similarly, it is also vital to learn what´s not inside a BIM model, as for instance rooms and spaces—both belong to geometric entities well-known with the GIS world and applied for analysis, but not intended for the architects.

Since Revit provides a limited amount of categories, these are all mapped to a feature class to give entry to all related attribute and parametric information. IFC, in comparison, employs various categories which are complicated to control in a GIS.

Esri manages Revit data within ArcGIS by extracting the data and interpreting it as a GIS dataset. ArcGIS can export feature classes into .dwg format that can be obtained in AutoCAD with a plugin known as ArcGIS for AutoCAD. The Revit read capability is a first step in a same process for BIM data.

How To Create Curve Staircase – Curve Railings And Modern Stairs Using Autodesk Revit

This classy tutorial examines the procedure of not only creating curved stairs but curve railings and modern stairs also. What you need for this tutorial is the basic understanding of Revit and its execution methodology.

This tutorial is created with the latest version of Autodesk Revit.

Initially you will need to set up the entire interface of Revit to make it work. And then you need to select the tool which would be preferable for you to use such as from stair tool you can select either Stair by Component or Stair by Sketch.

In this way you can create your desired output of curved staircase.

For more information, watch the video.

How to use Revit to produce rebar shape images

In some versions of Revit, it is possible to include an image to a family instance or type by using the “Image” or “Type Image” parameter.

Toward Rebar families specific there exist the “Shape Image” parameter, which allow to generate well formatted rebar bending schedules along with the rebar shape image.

Revit provides Rebar Shapes as per the local requirements and codes for various global countries. These Rebar Shapes don’t include these Shape Images so the users get the ability to customize this.

For rebar schedule demonstrations throughout demos of “Rebar with Revit”, I edited the default rebar shape families can be edited and the shape code images can be included to the Shape Image parameter by adhering to BS8666 : 2005. This can produce nice formatted bending schedules for a simple reinforced concrete tunnel.

One can download the content applied for this small model from below:

Upgradation Made To Ideate Explorer For Revit

Ideate Software, recently introduced its spring 2017 versions Ideate Explorer for Revit, which comprise of the new 2018 version and improvements to the features of Ideate Explorer 2017 and 2016. These solutions are compatible with Autodesk Revit 2015, 2016, and 2017, and the timing of the updates associate with the Autodesk launch of Revit 2018.

Ideate Explorer is a robust tool for managing Revit model efficiently. Ideate Explorer facilitates the Revit users to automatically seek out, filter, quantify, index, and choose any and all elements along with ‘missing’ and hard to find ones – in a current view or a whole Revit file.

Now, the customers will be able to resolve the issues associated with complicated building information models.

Given below, the details of new features:

  • New Workflows
    • Modification in Family Editing will facilitate the users to define whether a Reference is required or not necessary
    • Modification in Nested Element and Model Group data allows the users to remove nested elements or groups efficiently out of a selection set to evaluate and edit other properties
    • New Save and Load selection sets buttons facilitate the users to get access to Revit software’s saved selection tools, improving auditing and QC processes
    • Enhanced Revit multi-stair object (2018 only)
    • Apply Ideate Explorer with Perspective View (2018 only)

Ideate Explorer for Revit carries a five-star rating on the Autodesk App Store and is available with a non-commercial free trial. Download the trial today.

How To Use Spacing Naming Tool In Revit Mep

Earlier, Space Naming tool was an add-in. Now it is integrated with the software. This generally applied functionality is set up with Revit, making the method easy for getting up and running.

Space Naming tool can be applied for renaming spaces in the MEP model to the room names and/or numbers out of a connected architectural model.

Thus, one can get rid of allocating names manually to the spaces and save huge time and make the workflow simple.

In order to recognize spaces devoid of room names while matching the spaces to rooms, just follow this simple trick – prior to add spaces, set the connected architectural model to room bounding in type properties.

Revit 2015 MEP – Calculations and Performance

When Revit 2015 Update unleash third version, it offered a brand new MEP setting became offered for Pipe and Duct Systems referred to as Performance Mode. If you examine the kind of properties of a Piping system (or Duct) you will find this extra setting.

The help documentation offers this table to interrupt down those system classification calculations are created available to USA and that are ready to benefit of this new Performance selection.

This means to boost performance once working/editing massive MEP system networks. For every system kind we decide to assign this Performance setting to, Revit’s system propagation is disabled on each system assigned thereto system kind. The Calculations parameter is enclosed in schedules, which may create it easier to toggle on and off.

At first look it does not appear a lot of totally different from selecting None as a result of to revive system propagation we’ve to vary the setting back to use a calculation methodology, aside from Performance or None. My initial expectation was that none would pack up calculations entirely and Performance would allow therefore me calculations however do so in an exceedingly method that may improve my expertise or perception of performance, Revit’s responsiveness as I work.

As I’ve learned from the developers, despite carrying a reputation that {means|that implies} to me otherwise, beneath the hood, mistreatment none of them doesn’t tell Revit to utterly ignore everything associated with the connected network. This new Performance setting will enable Revit to utterly ignore any system (as so much as calculation propagation is concerned) that’s assigned to the Performance setting.

As I perceive them, the 2 decisions area unit a trade off between accretive slower performance for every and each model (our) interaction (by selecting None) or having a faster response (from Revit) for every model interaction, selecting instead to endure a extended wait once turning back on calculations (using Performance). Maybe during a} future unleash we’ll simply see none of them eliminated or replaced by Performance? At the very least i feel the naming may be a bit deceptive.

An aspect result of mistreatment this setting is that duct/pipe filler and also the System Inspector won’t work on systems that area unit assigned thereto either.
