I've come across a BIM specific role with an architecture firm that I might be interested in, they require a portfolio to be accompanied with the application. It's max 5mb which isn't big. I'm a architectural technologist (currently undertaking s BIM matters) with 5+ years working solely with Revit on s number of BIM level 2 project, extensive experience creating families and some dynamo thrown in also.
With this in mind, what do you put into a portfolio? Previously I would've taken a bunch of drawings with me to interview from current or past projects I've worked on. Those roles haven't been as BIM specific while this is BIM before design/detailing
hey guys, trying to get the roof sheathing & roofing overhang detail correct on revit. - I can get it to what I want, but i think my workflow is wrong. How do people go about getting the sheathing to overhang 1/2" from the fascia & the shingle to overhang another 1/2" at the correct angle?
3 different roofs(rafter, sheathing, shingle) & offset footprint 1/2". cons - the plate height does not get adjusted when you change the rafter height. when adding new lines to the roof footprint, you need to do it three times. I dont think this is the correct workflow.
1 roof assembly w/ a void sweap around the perimeter. cons- when changing roof angle you need to change the void sweep profile. also apparently when you change the plate height, it just deletes the sweep? & my fascia board.
what I need is a "modify horizontal structure" button. (sorta similar to what walls have.) If you need to extend brick down past the plate line you can go into the wall assembly & unlock certain layers so that in section you can drag them down or up. Why does the roof not have this? - https://imgur.com/donykEg
how do you achieve the sheathing /roof shingle overhang in section? thanks
TLDR; When I use Steel connections I am unable to bind model into a new project.
I posted yesterday that I couldn't bind a model but wasn't sure why, but had identified the problem workset which was my Steels workset. I have today identified that it is when I use the Steel Connections, specifically, Baseplates and Single side end plates, that I am then unable to bind the model.
The error message reads; "Unable to bind the selected links" "Unable to bind some link instances. Either the link contains no 3D elements or there was an error loading it's elements into the current project".
Has anyone encountered this before/ have any ideas?
I can't just create the connections in the model I am trying to bind into because we are providing a Structural model for an Architectural client and they wish to bind it into theirs.
Have a structure model linked in and even where two columns are the same properties, level, height and workset- some appear over existing walls in our model and some appear under as in the image linked above.
I have seen previous post about this exact issue on other forums... from 2011. Is this just accepted as an issue? Has anyone had any luck without using hatches over each place in plan or having to copy the columns in on a separate workset?
We're a Structural practice and have been asked to provide structural elements for an Architectural firm. I have made this in it's own separate model which they can then link into theirs. Before issuing our model, I have removed all links of theirs, purged etc, everything you normally would before issuing, they can link our model into theirs but can not bind it, comes up with an error message, "Unable to bind the selected links" "Unable to bind some link instances. Either the link contains no 3D elements or there was an error loading it's elements into the current project".
I have tried everything, I have searched every autodesk forum and tried everything suggested to no avail. They are able to bind the IFC link just not the Revit link.
Even when I try and bind it into a brand new, empty project, it doesn't work. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am at my wits end with this.
Hi all, My name is Rob with the Endeavor Group, a national engineering staffing agency. Over the past few months both myself and my fellow recruiters have had a large amount of difficulty in finding individuals with Revit experience. The reason that I am posting today (other than the fact that I have a Revit Drafter opening in Binghamton NY right now) is to ask if there was a certain place that you guys/gals post your resume's when looking for work? If you don't post your resumes, how would you suggest a recruiter like myself find candidates with Revit experience. Thanks so much!!!
Hi guys. Ive been playing around in revit but every time i get to putting in a couch bed or toilet i have to go through this tedious process of trying to find bim files. Isnt there just a generic package i can download and use in general design. I cant believe the software itself doest have just some generic objects. And its such a headace to find?
I made generic models of my frames which are just profiles on a sweep. It allows my to easily select between 6 frame options on a family type parameter. I got it working and it’s really nice. But then I went and dropped a door in a project to test and I’ve run into a huge issue. In plan, i just see a rectangle, the outline of the frame from the top. It’s not cutting the frame geometry in plan. In the frame model itself I have the box checked to cut in plan. Fine. But in the door model, where I have the frame model nested, I select the frame and edit the view properties there and the option to cut in plan is unchecked and greyed out. What gives? Is there a different model type that enables this? Help / insight please.
A quick aside, my door leaves and door hardware are both generic models that are nested within the door as well. This is not an issue though, as I hide the handle and door leaf in plan, only showing the swing diagram. There was a time when I had the door leaf as a door type not a generic model. I don’t think I need to explain why that was a terrible idea, so let’s just agree that that is not a solution for this frame issue.
The only thing I can think of now is to have 6 sweeps in the model with visibility parameters. Not as elegant. Is there any way to select the profile used on a sweep with a parameter?
