Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video 2D or not 2D: Do I fully model everything?, part of BIM Tools Weekly.
- [Instructor] Overmodeling.…It's almost as bad as undermodeling.…I see both happen quite a bit.…I'm also from time to time guilty of both of these as well.…So, where do we draw the line?…Here's just a few things I like to look out for.…The first thing is importing.…This is actually the biggest culprit.…Although it's tempting to import a plane or car…from SketchUp or a giant conveyor system SAT file…that has everything modeled,…including all the motors, bolts, switches, and belts.…It looks cool and it's usually dead-on accurate,…but hold the phone here.…
You just crushed the model.…Use these things, but clean 'em up.…For SketchUp stuff, try to bring it into Navisworks…and not even bring it into Revit.…You might not need to.…Or what I do a lot is make a separate Revit model…and then link it in.…One other thing is when you're importing CAD…to create a family, please delete the CAD when you're done.…That's another huge culprit.…And speaking of families, avoid the void.…Yeah, I've found the overuse of voids…can start hitting your performance.…

Q: Why can't I earn a Certificate of Completion for this course?
A: We publish a new tutorial or tutorials for this course on a regular basis. We are unable to offer a Certificate of Completion because it is an ever-evolving course that is not designed to be completed. Check back often for new movies.
