New Training Class: Modeling Hardscape and Topography
Ever model Revit elements on site topography and can’t quite get them to follow the exact contours? Want to learn how to build straight walls, curved walls, sidewalks, curbs, stairs, planters, roads, and other hardscape elements of any shape or size that follow the exact shape and contour of any site topography element? Then join Marcello Sgambellurifor one of our newest training classes in Los Angeles and Newport Beach!
Adapted from the highest-rated session at Autodesk University, this one-day course also teaches you how to model site topography to match the location and shape of hardscape elements. No third-party programs, API programming, or other programs other than Revit are used! This class first introduces fundamental concepts that will become the foundation for which all the element modeling will be created from. This class also shows how to work with those stubborn site topographies to get them to do what you need. Registration is currently open but space is limited, so don’t wait!
In the first of the “Back to Basics: Revit for the MEP User” series, I walk you through four key steps: opening a template in Revit, linking in an architectural file, checking room bounding, and looking at phase mapping.
If you are having difficulty creating a deployment only of your Revit install with your Building Design Suite, it is likely due to a known issue with the Revit Content Libraries. Philip Charlson shares a solution to this issue.
Revit Libraries contain robust model content, annotative content, and many other items that support your team’s project processes, workflows, and overall experience in Revit. Learn all about why you need to properly set up Revit Libraries.
In this short clip, Aaron Wagner gives you a quick look at how you can use different views in Revit to make your project documentation more meaningful.
