Back to Basics: Revit for MEP User – Copying Levels & Grids with the Copy/Monitor Tool
In this next part of the Back to Basics: Revit for MEP Users series, I’m covering the Copy/Monitor tool. This tool is very useful in copying levels and grids from the architectural link that you set up previously.
Watch the short video below to see me walk through the steps of pulling in an elevation, aligning the levels, and creating floor plans off the levels.

Although the rendering option in Navisworks continues to improve, many of us want basic colors for our 3D Spatial Coordination and other useful tools. Many owners are dictating what colors they want model objects to be, to improve communication during design review and other important meetings. Improvement means change, and change often means moving buttons and commands. For those having trouble coloring their models, follow this sequence:
One of the most powerful demonstrations of Building Information Modeling is a Record Model. So much that it deserves a two-part blog. If you have any questions after this first one, I can include the answers in the second part. I have shortened certain steps to keep the blog interesting. If you want the full procedure, contact U.S. CAD and we can give you the exact steps towards an incredible deliverable that has been tried and tested. Happy modeling!
Newport Beach, California, October 27, 2015 – The Pacific Coast BIM Workshop returned for its second year to Anaheim, CA on October 1st and 2nd. The two-day event was hosted once again by U.S. CAD, a local BIM consultant and Autodesk Platinum Partner.
Greetings from the Infrastructure Universe! This month, I have a whole bunch of recent Autodesk software updates to share. I also have several must-watch videos for you to work better in Civil 3D. Read on for all the updates.
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.
How often do you encounter confusion or difficulties when passing your Civil 3D design to a Revit user (or vice versa)? If this is a frequent problem, you’re not alone. Civil 3D and Revit don’t always get along well, but, with the right workflow, you can maximize your efficiency and make work easier for yourself and everyone you work with.
Greetings from the Infrastructure Universe! I have some really cool videos and tips for AutoCAD, Civil 3D, and more this month. There are also some recent updates from Autodesk. Read on for all of this month’s news.
In the April From AutoCAD to Revit webinar, Aaron demonstrated how users can impressively tell their story with views in a Revit model. He covered creating graphical and non-graphical views, setting the view displays, and modifying the views.
If your firm is transitioning from AutoCAD to Revit, but still has a library full of old AutoCAD Details, you can rest assured. There are several ways to convert your AutoCAD Details into your Revit projects. Learn 4 simple steps from Jack Trexler:
If you’ve ever played the “I’m not touching you game” as a child, you know how important boundaries are and our need for space. Revit families are no different. A 3D element provides a great parametric visual of what we can expect outside of the virtual world, but without the proper clearances the equipment may not be given the space it truly needs to function.
Question: How do object enablers work in Navisworks?
Expert Solution from Heidi Boutwell, CADLearning’s Infrastructure Content Manager: Autodesk uses object enablers in all of its platforms, including Navisworks. Object enablers ensure that model objects are displayed properly.
Have you seen the new CADLearning platform first hand yet? We got a First Look at the New CADLearning last week, and the new platform has many enhancements to help users and teams be more productive and ultimately help their company be more successful.
At first glance, I thought AutoCAD 2019 seemed light on new features. But then I heard about One AutoCAD. Check out my conversation with CADLearning’s Senior Content Manager David Cohn about the new release and what it means for AutoCAD users.
