RS201: BIM Management – Templates and Families for Revit Structure
A key component in managing the BIM process is to establish a company foundation for different types of projects by creating standard templates and custom family elements. Having this in place makes the process of any new project flow smoothly and efficiently.
The objective of this course is to enable users who have worked with the software to expand their knowledge in setting up office standards with templates that include annotation styles, preset views, sheets, and schedules, as well as creating custom system, in-place, and component families.
- Preparing project templates
- Customizing annotation styles
- Create custom templates with annotation styles, title blocks, and custom element types
- Create schedules, including material takeoff schedules with formulas
- Create custom system family types
- Set up a component family file with a parametric framework
- Create family geometry and family types
- Modify the visibility of components and incorporate additional family items such as nested components
- Create specific families, including in-place families, profiles, annotations, and parameters
This course is designed for experienced Revit users who wish to expand beyond their basic skills into more advanced Revit functionality.
Students should be comfortable with the fundamentals of the structural tools in Revit as taught in the RS101: Revit Fundamentals for Structure course. Knowledge of basic techniques is assumed, such as creating standard elements, copying and moving elements, creating and working with views, etc.
