Revit Sheet Composition

Revit Sheet Composition
Printed output in Revit is What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG), with a few exceptions: The background colour for the print job is always white. By default, reference planes, work planes, crop boundaries, unreferenced view tags, and scope boxes do not print. To include them in the print job, in the Print Setup dialog, clear the corresponding Hide options. The print job includes elements that ha...

Adding 2D Detail in Revit Tutorial

Adding 2D Detail in Revit Tutorial
Are aware you can show information in Revit in a variety of ways, from 3D views to plans, sections and elevations. In each case the geometry is typically modelled based on design intent, meaning the goal isn’t to model everything but model enough to demonstrate what the building is going to look like. It then becomes necessary to add 2D details to bridge the gap between the design and building rea...

Resetting File Units for Navisworks Models

Resetting File Units for Navisworks Models
When we open or append Navisworks models each model file will have its own default scale unit associated with it, and Navisworks understands the concept of whichever scale unit the scene is presented in. This is useful when measuring items and setting tolerances for clash detection. There is a single scene unit that is set from the global options editor and it is used throughout as appropriat...

See What You Require - Navisworks Section Planes

See What You Require - Navisworks Section Planes
When working with Navisworks, quite often you will have quite a sizeable project in terms of area. In these cases, sometimes it’s difficult to take a good look at just the areas you need. Many design packages allow you to create sections and Navisworks is no exception. Much like the others they provide views of a localised area of the project. Once the section is produced a viewpoint can be create...

How To Get Certification For BIM Level 2

How To Get Certification For BIM Level 2
BIM has been around for years now, and with the government enforcing its adoption through their level 2 mandate, it is surprising to see that only 62% of the industry is leveraging this methodology. According to the NBS National BIM Report 2017, one of the biggest factors preventing firms from adopting BIM is the lack of in-house expertise, lack of training and costs of implementation, leaving a l...
