Clash! That's what we are doing here. We are looking for clashes. Long before Navisworks was invented, Revit had the ability to do this. In this video, we will purposly run some duct through a staircase and see how revit can detect a clas from one linked model to another. Then we will run a duct to duct fitting clash to see how our fitting is hitting. The test will have you finding and resolving clashes.
- [Instructor] What I'd like to is look at Revit's internal class report capability. To get started, let's jump into Revit, under Projects, let's go to out Interference model by clicking Open, go to Chapter four, and select Interference. Now, let's click open. Here's what I wanna do, let's go to one Mech floor plan. I don't think we have any clashes yet, so let's make some clashes. What I wanna do is two things, I wanna clash between different models, so we'll clash between the architectural model and our duct work, then I wanna clash between just items that are in our model.
So we'll have to make a clash over here. It won't be hard. Select this piece of duct, let's right click, let's create similar, now I'm gonna pick it just coming right off of here, it's at 10 feet. I'm gonna come right down to the middle of my hallway. Pick a point there, I'm gonna come out to about here, now I'm gonna make my offset, instead of 10 feet, I'm gonna make it eight foot six. Now I'm gonna come right through my stairs, bam. Hit escape a couple times.
I'm gonna go to a 3D view. I'm gonna zoom in on it, hopefully that clashes, it's hard to tell. What I'm gonna do is, go to collaborate, I'm gonna go to interference check, and I'm gonna run interference check. Categories from current project, let's go with ducts. Categories from architectural, now cause it's every element that's in that model. I wanna go down the stairs, now to clash against that.
Let's run it, let's click Ok. Now we got stairs, I select it, it turns them orange. I've got my ducts, it turns them orange, if I show, we'll see now that we have our clashes all set. I'm gonna hit close, now if we go back to interference check, we can show the last report that's been generated. Here it is. I'm gonna hit close. Now let's come over to this model, and notice that we have a little bit of a clash there, so let's see if we can clash duct to duct.
I'm gonna go interference check, I'm gonna run interference check, current project, duct fittings, I'm gonna go current project ducts. Then I'm gonna hit Ok, then we can look at the report, also we've got our elbow, also we've got that duct. Click on show, basically zooms in on it. If we did everything that show button is quite handy.
Now what I wanna do is export this, I'm just gonna export this to our chapter four, and I'm gonna hit save. Now I'm gonna hit close. now I'm going to go into my Windows Explorer, I'm gonna browse to where I'm keeping my exercise files, I'm gonna find that interference check. And here it is. Close out of here, close out of here. This is how you pick up interferences in Revit.
