BSA Lifestructures

Join Technology Expert, Bill Carney, at this Year’s Autodesk University

November 7, 2017

Planning on attending this year’s Autodesk University in Las Vegas?

Join BSA LifeStructures’ BIM (Building Information Modeling) Director and expert, Bill Carney,  on Thursday, November 16. Bill will be presenting at 9:15 a.m. on Revit and Dynamo for Interior Design.

Session Description:

A common challenge for an interior design firm is working as a sub-consultant for an architecture firm and keeping room names, numbers, and finish information updated to populate room finish schedules. This is easily managed if you use Dynamo software to read information from the linked model and synchronize information in the interior design model.

Another common struggle is coordinating annotated information, room finish schedules, and material finish legends. A number of work-arounds exist, though all produce complicated workflows and still leave a disconnect between what is actually modeled and what is documented. A similar method to syncing room information from a linked model can be used to read finish information in a Revit model to populate the room finish schedule.

This presentation will be a combination of Microsoft PowerPoint and a live demonstration of techniques that BSA LifeStructures interior designers employ to improve the process of designing and documenting in Revit software with assistance from Dynamo. We’ll use PowerPoint to diagram the flow of information from phase to phase, or modeled content to construction drawing, followed by live demonstrations using Revit and/or Dynamo.

Topics will include:

  • synchronizing room finish schedules with modeled materials
  • connecting rooms from linked models
  • coordinating items from linked models such as signage for doors or light fixtures
  • coordinating data external to Revit such as room data sheets or FFE requirements
  • working through the design phases.

This class will also cover finish drawings, signage drawings, and furniture drawings, with a focus on synchronization of information for producing a visualization-ready model while reusing those efforts to produce construction documents
