If your job requires working on Revit models created by someone else, then you have probably run into situations where portions of the model need to be reworked. Perhaps you're a subcontractor or an interior designer who needs to accurately convey finishes. Traditionally tasks like these would require a good deal of time, but with the three unique construction modeling tools in Revit, you can now add the details and refinements you need without rebuilding the entire model. Paul F. Aubin shows how model elements can be broken down into parts and articulated with their own finishes, materials, and other details. To assist in documentation, Paul explores assemblies: detailed drawings of isolated portions of the model. And with the Displace feature he shows how to create compelling "exploded view" illustrations to convey how things fit together.

Topics include:
  • Creating and removing parts
  • Dividing parts
  • Adding and merging parts
  • Creating parts from linked files
  • Creating assemblies, assembly views, and assembly sheets
  • Creating and editing displacements sets
  • Controlling displacement views

Welcome

Hello. Paul F. Aubin here, and I'd like to welcome you to Revit Construction Modeling Tools. A big part of building information modeling is about sharing and coordinating data with members of the extended project team. But achieving this is not always easy, because each person or discipline on the project team has their own unique goals and needs for the model. In this course I will introduce you to three unique Revit features that can help. Together they are collectively referred to as construction modeling tools.

With parts, I'll show you how we can take elements in our model and break them down into individual smaller components. We'll take these parts and subdivide them into manageable and constructable pieces. To assist with documentation, we'll explore assemblies. I'll show you how we can take assemblies and allow us to isolate the model into their own areas of the project browser complete with dedicated views. And finally we'll use the displace feature, and I'll show you how to create dynamic, graphical presentations that pull the model apart in a kind of exploded view and help explain how everything fits together.

So no matter what your discipline, architect. Engineer or contractor. There are plenty of compelling use cases for these exciting tools. So let's go ahead and get started.
