Revit Architecture 2017 Essential

  • Adraft Inc.

Revit Architecture is a Building Information Modeling (BIM) tool that supports the design and coordination process to be more efficient, as well as establishing virtual modeling processes that can enrich the ways in which architects assess their designs. The core objective of Revit Architecture 2017 Essentials is to enable students to develop a BIM for the purpose of construction documentation. Once students have mastered these fundamental skills they can further progress with more advanced topics that utilize Revit to its fullest potential. The most essential tools and concepts will be covered. 

Cost: $1,400

Intro to Blue beam for AEC

  • LP Ciminelli

Please join us in Buffalo at LP Ciminelli, as Greg Hale from HALE TiP presents Intro to Bluebeam Revu for AEC.  

Bluebeam Revu is a PDF collaboration tool that has gained quite a bit of traction in the industry over the past several years. I often describe this as "Revit for PDF." If you haven't seen it before, come see the various tools that you could benefit from in your daily workflow. If you are a current user, come share your workflows and experiences with the software. I promise that this is not a sales pitch, rather, I want to make sure everybody is aware of the collaborative tools that are available. As well, I am interested to know how others are utilizing Bluebeam that I haven't seen before. Some examples of major benefits: 
-Functional batch printing to PDF
-3D PDF
-Online collaborative project review
- PDF measurements and estimating

As-Built BIM: Case Studies in Best-Practice MEP Scan-to-Model Workflows

The built environment is in a constant state of change. Renovations and retrofits give new purpose to aging structures, however, these projects come with an increasing set of challenges and complexities. Inaccuracies, delays, and inefficiencies at any stage in the project compound to erode profits and relationship equity. Starting with an accurate representation of the existing conditions is critical for project success. 

Industry experts Greg Hale, PE and Kris Nixon, PLS share their best practices for accelerating piping and duct scan-to-model workflows in case study format. Take a trip into the field and hear their experiences on two ongoing projects.

  • Event Details

    You hear about it every day. Everyone is talking about the potential of the cloud, but how real is this new technology? What does the cloud mean relative to team productivity and traditional design processes for designers and builders? If you move your data into the cloud, what are the security, bandwidth, and intellectual property risks?  Does cloud computing offer tangible benefits that can better serve your customers and provide you with a competitive advantage? 

    On Wednesday May 28th, we'll take a tour of Advance2000's data center in Buffalo. We'll then sit down to discuss and get a better understanding of these issues and learn about the possibilities. Greg Hale, with HALE Technology in Practice, will present a live demo of the Autodesk Building Design Suite on the cloud. Come and get a clear understanding of why now is the time to embrace the possibilities of virtually infinite computing power in the cloud to truly transform your business and gain a real competitive advantage.

    As always the event is free. No need to print the ticket. Advance2000 will be sponsoring food for us as well!  Hope to see you there!

RocCity Revit User Group - May 2014 - Developing Revit and AutoCAD Models from 3D Laser Scans and Point Clouds

3D laser scanning and point clouds are relatively new to the building design and construction industry. Over the past several years there has been a convergence of hardware advances, software technologies, and scanning service providers that is making this process a very viable option for documenting existing building and site conditions.

During the presentation, we'll discuss the basics of laser scanning, then dive into the process for using the point cloud generated from the laser scan. Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD are now very compatible with point cloud data and there are a number of ways of creating geometry from the data captured. Some processes are very manual while others are automated. Come learn how you can transform those existing conditions into very accurate 3D models and reduce the number of trips to the jobsite.

RocCity Revit User Group - April 2014 - Model Based Quantity TakeOff

Model based quantity takeoff (QTO) is one of those primary advantages to using building information modeling (BIM) for your projects.  There are many methods and tools for extracting quantities from BIM models, but while estimators are warming up to relying more heavily on model-based quantities, 2D takeoff is still the norm.   

We'll provide an overview of these methods of model-based takeoff utilizing such tools as Autodesk Revit, Navisworks, Design Review, On-Screen, Assemble and Bluebeam Revu.  Through practice of these methods, hopefully you will each become more comfortable with the process recognize the value and start to utilize this workflow to identify quantities for all of your estimates.

RocCity Revit User Group - March 2014

  • Passero Associates

3D Coordination is perhaps the greatest benefit of producing a design in 3D digital platform such as Revit.  It is also something that the industry has had a difficult time adopting and implementing as a standard of practice.  Tools such as Revit, Navisworks, Design Review, Bluebeam and others can all be used to coordinate disciplines.  During the presentation we will discuss the tools and methods of executing multidiscipline coordination from both the designers perspective as well as the contractors'.  

Greg Hale, PE will be discussing from the designer's perspective and Mindy Hoffman from LP Ciminelli will present from the builders'.  We all know that there are many barriers to getting this workflow in place.  Hopefully we'll help resolve the questions about those barriers and the tools utilized in the process with the goal of establishing more efficient workflows for all parties involved.
