Advance Steel – Status Control Inside Model And Drawings

In Advance Steel, the users can use the options to provide a Status level to both the drawing and the model elements and it is often described as Key Stages/Life Cycles inside the production process.

 

The Status system remains as part of the Fabrication data inside Advance Steel, it can contain levels/statuses which are included to it through the Management Tool (MT) System. Besides, comment levels are included to approve the status.

 

Various colors can be arranged while generating anything inside the MT. These can then be applied to provide colourisation/highlighting to the model. It is accomplished with the project explorer and the saved Query Feature.

Together with this, there exist a status level for drawings, the drawing system is segregated to the model elements, because drawings may not always remain at the equivalent status as the model, as for instance the model may be left for revision, the elements in the model are updated, but the drawings are not located at similar point. But at some point, they will obtain an adjustment, then a modification in status level of Reissued etc., then modifying to the same status as model at some point.

 

The vital fact is that a “STATUS” level, is not an adjustment to the drawing, it belongs to the present state of the drawing to the overall life cycle to the project, so the two systems are not same, but can be employed in combination to deliver a life cycle management to the system for Autodesk Advance Steel document and model management.

 

To get detailed idea on the different steps and operation, go through the following video presentations.

This Revit Video Tutorial Sheds Light On Autodesk Revit 2017 Extension

Advance Steel 2017 Extension empowers Autodesk® Revit® 2017 users to instantly link their models to Advance Steel 2017 by applying the export, import and synchronize functionalities to transmit the model BIM data in LOD350 for Structural Steel. This conformity facilitates the users to generate general arrangement drawings, fabrication drawings, BOMs, and NC files for steel structures quickly and efficiently.

With use of synchronized BIM data among applications, the users will be able to update the changes (if any) devoid of reimporting the whole structure. Synchronization also minimizes the risk of probable mistakes by pursuing the changes occurred on the same model in various applications.

With Advance Steel 2017 Extension, the BIM data from the Revit model is imported or exported in other formats like SDNF (Version 2.0 and Version 3.0), CIS2 and PSS.

Learn The Basics Of Dynamo & Installation Process For Revit

The Revit tutorial is specifically designed to teach you the fundamentals of Dynamo as well as how to download and set up the software to produce your initial graph.

Dynamo stands for an open-source visual programming tool that can simplify the process for developing your own tools in Revit. Dynamo can be used to generate complicated geometry, automate monotonous tasks, and visualize any Revit model all from a user-friendly interface.

Dynamo now fully compatible with Revit 2017 and does not need an extra download.


How to set up Dynamo for Revit 2017: Once Revit 2017 is installed, the users can’t find Dynamo in manage tab instantly. Initially, the users have to run the Dynamo installer again and ensure to verify Revit 2017 to include Dynamo to this new install. Choose the components for installation; remove the components which should not be installed. Click next when everything is ready to process further.

The following video tutorial will help you to install Dynamo for Revit 2017.

Top 3 Features Of Revit 2017

Revit 2017 is launched and it contains some advanced features. Given below, top 3 new features of the software.

1. Depth Cueing: If one just wants to model a building in Revit keeping all default settings, placed elevations on sheets, and printed devoid of any tweaking, the drawings will not appear good. This issue now will be solved as Autodesk finally included the capability to adjust line weights on the basis of the distance.

2. Hosted Railings: It is now possible to host your railings to the top faces of floors, slabs, slab edges, walls, and roofs. Everything, like balusters, will be modified consequently. In this regard, you have to just choose your host while sketching a railing.

3. Text Editor: Finally, Autodesk is set to deliver the text editor inside Revit up to the standards of this century.

Revit Server – Moving Projects to a New Host Server

To move Revit Server projects to a new host the user needs to have physically save them to the new host through Revit. This is also the perfect time to clean up the file before vigorously using the new central file in production. You can access the link to file preservation here.

For those of you using Revit Server, it is still important to maintain the central file. Keeping the central file healthy is critical to keeping the project running smoothly and to avoid causing file corruption. Below are best practices that need to be done routinely on the central file to keep it clean. Routinely is going to depend on how active the project is. The more active the project is, the more often it should be maintained. This should be done on all models sincelinks impact model performance as well.

IMAGINiT Technologies, A Rand Worldwide Company (OTCBB:RWWI), is the world’s largest provider of enterprise solutions to the engineering community, has brought this one.

Make sure that the entry for the new Host is in the rsn.ini file and create the project and folder structure through the Revit Server Administrator (or Clarity if you are using that).

Process:

  • Have all users synchronize and save to central on the current host, make sure all worksets are relinquished, close the local files.
  • Have one user Open the Central file. From the Open dialog box, clear the check box Create New Local, place a check in the boxes for Detach from Central and Audit.

  • Select the Yes button from the Audit Warning dialog box and then click the Open button.
  • You will see the following Detach Model from Central dialog box, select Detach and preserve worksets.
  • In Revit, go to the Application Menu R and click on Save as, Project and Browse to the new Host location and the proper folder. Name the file accordingly.

Note: If you select Options you will notice that Make this a Central Model after save and Compact are greyed out and pre-checked.
 
  • Go to Manage Links and Unload the links until they are moved to the new host. After all files are moved you will need to open the files and reload from to point to the files on the new host.
  • Synchronize and modify settings

Check everything that can be checked including compact if you like, although the process of saving the file to a new location will already do this. You can add a comment if you like; this shows up in History under comments.

After the save is complete, close the project.

This process will need to be done for all models in the project.

This Step is CRITICAL: Before having users create new local files make sure they delete or archive/rename their old local files and their back up folder.

Once all of the models are saved to the new host have one user open a local file and repath the links. Sync with central and relinquish. Now all users should be able to pull new local files (See * comment above) from the new host.
