Hide & Seek with Revit Elements - Richard W Taylor of Ideate Software

Revit software gives you a dizzying array of sophisticated options to display or hide elements within the Building Information Model that are based on intelligent parameters or properties of the element or view settings. Every element has a category, phase, discipline, or workset that can impact whether that element displays within a selected view. In addition, scope boxes, crop regions, and view ranges may also impact the display of Revit model or annotation elements. And, view templates and many view settings can also drive element visibility. In fact, there are at least 50 different ways to hide an element in Revit.

Learn about Ideate Software’s powerful arsenal of forensic tools that will help you understand why an element doesn’t display as expected, and how to fix the issue.

About the Presenter:

Richard W. Taylor, Assoc. AIA, Technical Evangelist at Ideate Software has over 25 years of experience working for companies that develop architectural and engineering software solutions such as Intergraph, Bentley, and Autodesk. He has over 15 years of Revit experience, and was part of the original development team for Revit while at Revit Technology Corporation. He worked 12 years at Autodesk where he presented, taught, and worked to improve features in Revit.

Learning Objectives:
After completing this presentation, attendees will be able to…

  • Learn how to fix a visibility issue when a Revit object is outside of the View Range setting.
  • Learn how to fix a visibility issue when a Revit object is outside of an annotation or model crop view setting.
  • Gain an understanding of how element and view Phase settings can impact element visibility.
  • Learn how discipline settings on the element and within the view can impact element visibility.

How good is your Revit model? - Lewis Wenman & Lewis Courtnell of Bouygues UK 

Class Summary: Assessing the model, does it meet with EIR and BEP requirements? We will discuss QA & a process/tool that reports how compliant and suitable the model is.

Learning objectives:

·         How to examine the model and assess if the fundamental modelling methodology of the software has been adopted.
·         How to check the model for optimum performance and prepare it for issuance providing a Quality Assurance process.
·         How to utilise Revit’s capabilities for management along with applications such as Autodesk Model Checker and Dynamo.
·         Produce a report that details how compliant and suitable the model is.
·         BIM Managers, Information Managers, Model Coordinators,

Description of talk:

·         Have you ever received a model and wondered what’s inside?
·         Questioned how the model was put together?
·         Have issues with your model performance and don’t know where to start looking.
·         We are not just talking about the geometry but the Metadata and how the model has been put together. The session will look under the bonnet of the Revit model and assess the quality and suitability of the data so that a valid assessment can be made of what the model can be used for and if it is safe for you to integrate into your own data set.
·         The session will discuss Quality Assurance & introduce a process/tool that utilizes Revit capabilities for management along with applications Autodesk Model Checker and Dynamo, accumulating into a report that details how compliant and suitable the model is.
