The question often come up on how to export a table that has been created from objects in the drawing to Excel. In this video we’ll go through the process to do the export.
Introduction and setup For our upcoming Revit Usergroup we have planned a random draw whereby we’ll give away a prize to one lucky attendee. We’ve decided that we’ll do the draw with Dynamo ! Here is a summary of the idea: Step 1. To create a Revit file containing Model text. Step 2. To enter […]
Revit comes out as a United States edition as far as standards are concerned. This is true for Keynotes, Assembly codes, and Omniclass numbers. If you know how one can recast the typical standard to comply with the formats for any of these. It does take some understanding of the standard hierarchy, and if the […]
This invaluable tool with which to manage classification systems in Revit and Navisworks has been available for some time and may be downloaded free of charge here: http://www.biminteroperabilitytools.com/ As a Revit modeller with knowledge of BIM then know that: throughout the lifecycle of a building, classification systems facilitate managing data information models (Revit projects). Autodesk […]

The ASAQS standard is published by the Association of South African Quantity Surveyors (ASAQS). The ASAQS Elemental classification was developed by the BIM Institute (http://www.biminstitute.org.za/) in partnership with ASAQS and endorsed by South African Institute for Architects (SAIA). It may be downloaded here: https://www.asaqs.co.za/news/news.asp?id=395452 The ASAQS Elemental classification is intended to address specification requirements through […]
One of the tasks a BIM manager has is to manage view creation at the beginning of a project. I believe this task is most challenging on the Mechanical Electrical and Plumbing side. Consider the following multi-disciplinary project view structure. Clearly, there is multiple floor plan view types and these need to be created for […]
When we measure geometry for reverse engineering it’s not always possible to get to a solution using easy classical drafting techniques. In some instances, AutoCAD can be used to give the solution to complex geometry down to about the eighth decimal place. After modelling a design in 3D I usually pick up discrepancies in the […]
