Schedules are really powerful tools in Revit. They can help you check and validate model data, or quantify materials and elements in a project. They can also do really simple things like create a Drawing List. Sometimes though, we need to take the information out of your Revit schedule and export it to something more universally used. Microsoft Excel is the industry leading spreadsheet software program, a powerful data visualization and analysis tool. (Note: There is a similar process for Google Sheets!!) In this quick tip I’ll show you how to easily export your Revit Schedules to excel. Expor ..read more

WHAT IS L.O.D? UNDERSTANDING LOD REQUIREMENTS AND THE IMPLICATIONS TO YOUR MODEL As Revit users, we are all familiar with creating 3D models, and producing the 2D documentation required for our discipline. When working on projects, we often have to share our models and information with other design disciplines in order to work collaboratively. We all need each other to provide correct, accurate and reliable model elements at different stages of a project. Level of Development (LOD) is a scale used to show the reliability of specific model elements at different times during model development. T ..read more

As Revit family creators, we see, use and model a wide variety of Revit Families every day, thus becoming experts in identifying a great Revit file. Are your Revit Families at the correct standard? Here are our top 5 revit tips. 1. Standardised Structure. Naming a Revit Family is not as simple as calling it ‘two-seater sofa’. If you intend to publish your files they need to follow the same structure as other available content. Within the UK, NBS have recognised the need for consistency and produced an in-depth document of standards. Which you can see here Within one BIM Family ..read more

Information is the foundation of knowledge, communication, and simulation on the internet. BIM has leveraged this capability to revolutionize the way we move from idea to construction, and Revit has led the way as the software of choice for the visualization and analysis of building information. But something is lost when we look at collaboration entirely through the lens of information sharing. People—real living humans with differing opinions and emotions—must evaluate all of this information and decide whether it will result in just the right experience for the future inhabitants of the spa ..read more
