December 2019 Revit DC User Group Meeting

Details

Hear from Revit users as they share their ideas, methods, and best practices in order to further the Building Information Modeling (BIM) benefits for the local design community.

Attendees will receive 2 AIA CEUs for attending.

Agenda
6:00pm - 6:20pm Networking-Food and drink served

6:20pm - 6:30pm Introductions

6:30pm - 6:40pm Revit Tip
Presented by Dana De Filippi, SmithGroup

Something cool and fun for Revit Users to learn.

6:40pm - 7:10pm Working with Line Based Nested Components
Presented by Pradipta Banerjee, David M. Schwarz Architects

Line based families work great to represent a repeating component. However, as they are inherently built on a generic model template, there are certain limitations when it comes to scheduling. This presentation demonstrates the use of nested shared components, their visibility parameters and a few simple conditional formulas to represent and schedule repeating details such as parking stalls, toilet stalls with or without an ADA stall, etc. seamlessly in the design and documentation process.

7:10pm - 8:00pm Beverages and BIM
Presented by Revit DC Advisory Board

Please join the Revit DC Advisory Board for an in-person social networking session where we will celebrate the season with drinks and great conversation. Your first beverage will be on us! We all share a common interest in modeling and how this technology is and will change the way we design and build.

We hope you will join us for this informal session of tech-talk as we capture ideas for our 2020 Revit DC meetings.
