Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an approach to the entire building life cycle. Autodesk Revit Architecture, Autodesk Revit MEP, and Autodesk Revit Structure are powerful BIM programs that support the ability to coordinate, update, and share design data with team members throughout the design construction and management phases of a building’s life. 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 elements. Having this in place makes the process of any new project flow smoothly and efficiently.
The objective of Autodesk Revit 2014 BIM Management is to enable readers 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 element types and families.
This textbook also contains additional discipline-specific practices for families including doors, windows, railings, pipe fittings, light fixtures, gusset plates, and built-up columns.
Information about creating object styles, fill patterns, and materials as well as some basic User Interface customization is included in Appendix A.
