Advance Workshop for Robot 3D Laser

Advance Workshop for Robot 3D Laser
Architects and designers have now accustomed us to buildings and infrastructures of the most varied forms that defy the laws of physics and that in most cases are made of steel. But what happens after drawing a curved bridge or a curved skyscraper as a simple sketch on paper? Generally, after the preliminary design, we move on to the executive project through the use of BIM (Building Information M...

How To Use The Revit Linework Tool

How To Use The Revit Linework Tool
There are several tools available in Revit to manipulate, modify, and manage the way elements display in the drawing area. The Linework tool is one useful tool that does not create new model or detail lines in the view. Instead, it overrides the current line style of the selected line and applies a different line style.

A Guide To Advance Steel Dimensions

A Guide To Advance Steel Dimensions
The parametric dimensioning tools in Advance Steel are incredibly effective, handling different scales and clipped (shortened) views without the user even thinking about it. Unfortunately, the trade off for this functionality seems to be that certain dimension commands are a bit more fiddly to use than the plain AutoCAD equivalents. This seems to particularly affect the Arc Length, Angle and Radiu...

Revit Tip - Placing an Angled Dimension
Whilst using Revit, have you ever tried to place a dimension on an angled wall which is part of a larger wall system, but found that you couldn't configure the dimension to run parallel to the angled wall?   One option for correcting this would be to remove one of the walls adjacent to the angled wall, then select the angled wall, and a temporary dimension that is aligned with the angled wal...

Revit Circuit Referencing Using Dynamo Part Three

Revit Circuit Referencing Using Dynamo Part Three
In the previous tutorial in this series we looked at creating a Dynamo script to help us to manipulate the Revit circuit data and allow us to use it in the panel schedule. In this article, we are going to use a slightly modified version of the previous script, which will work on Revit wires. We will also modify a wire tag to complement it. Once created, our Dynamo scripts can be used time and time...
