Does anyone here have, or know of any online sample projects w/ full blown cd's done in Revit. So far I have just been using revit as a design tool, and have yet to do a set of Cd's with it. But I really want to. I would like to see how people are setting up and organizing sections. details, and legends. My last project done in AutoCAD probobly had about 100 to 150 sections & details. I have no idea how I would organize that many details and sections in the Revit Explorer.

mate, I have done full CD in Revit and you can have 1000 sections and Revit will handle it much better than Autocad! Smile Revit makes your life much easier when it comes to documantation, I see a lot of people that use Revit for presentation, but the real strength come from documenting, all in one place all conected. can't give you my file, (not mine to give) but can help when I can Winking

eldados has it in one. we used to be autocad, but the ease of creating documentation is a real standout of revit. everything is coordinated, plus things like sections take mere moments to setup. others on this website say it constantly - concentrate on the model to get it right, then use revit to create the drawings. 100 or more sections? good grief, but just use the scroll button! and collapse some categories. i have seen a good revit user with two screens and he parks parts of revit on the second one, which may help you?

I guess I will just have to give it a try. Say you have 100 sections & details in your project. Is there anyway to tell which one have and have not been placed on a dwg sheet? My other problem deals with legends, & notes. Over the years we have developed and extensive library of legends, general notes bars (demo, constr, rcp, ect..). Currently in AutoCAD I can just insert the most appropriate configuration into my project, explode and modify it as required. Can I use this legacy AutoCAD data in Revit. Or should I re-create them from scratch.

I got my AUGI magazine in the mail the other day, it had an article about colours & lineweights so cad info. would import properly into revit. It also mentioned about taking the time to setup all the paperspace details into a big modelspace collection of blocks prior to importing. Unfortunately I just glanced at it (& left it at home today)...if you don't get it & you're interested I can read it tonight and sum-up here.

I don't get the AUGI magazine anymore, so if you could post a summary of that article I would appreciate it

yes kbsheppard, i think a few of us would like to hear your summary! as regards the question re how to tell what is/not on a sheet - the project browser can be configured so views that are on a sheet do not show in the browser view sections. use that maybe. and the thing about blocks of notes - we have recently taken to making 'groups' of notes and leaving them in the template, so we can drop them into views or sheets. the beauty of this is that a group can be placed multiple times, but has the ability to be edited anywhere, and update everywhere. great for plan/elev/sect legends. a glich though - we have noticed that some groups will only drop into a drafting view, and cannot be placed directly to a sheet. minor issue really. good luck, and persevere, revit is so worth it. we are yet to hit 12 months use and love it.

We emphasize the construction drawing and reuse of existing drawing assets as part of a profitable transition to Revit. It positively affects the mostly costly, labor intensive, bid dependent, mistake and liability prone part of a design project. This week's post is based on an article ifrom last weekend's Business Section of the Chicago Tribune. It specifically highlights unique tasks REVIT accomplished that saved time and money on a downtown project by Gensler Architects. "Building Chicago with Revit Building" http://taylor-tech.com/blogs/getEntryById/66/entry.html I've posted a few articles on the cost benefits to using Revit for construction drawings. Yes Virginia, Revit Uses CAD & Layer Standards http://taylor-tech.com/blogs/getEntryById/63/entry.html How can I use my AutoCAD or Microstation files in a Revit-based Project? http://taylor-tech.com/blogs/getEntryById/54/entry.html Revit's 10 Best ROI Features for Your First Pilot Project http://taylor-tech.com/blogs/getEntryById/32/entry.html Most of the Revit bloggers/sites that I monitor are sharing a great deal of good procedural methods and techniques...basically best practices for creating construction documents. From an owner's view, if I can automate the drafting and documentation process for a client project, then bring on the scary cool aspects of Revit - render and animate presentation drawings, - simulation of my construction phasing, - value-based engineering / value-based design using design options and bidirectional scheduling - design analysis of my structure, energy, LEED, ADA, specifications, site and building lifecyle management costs. As Dr. Steven Covey would say, "First Things First". Cheers to the weekend!

what are some other sites that you monitor? that tech site is just trying to get you to buy revit and train with them...

Here's how you configure the browser to show what views aren't on sheets yet...

How that helps to clarify a bit

What is with the users today?  How about looking to AutoDESK?  Searching on the AutoDESK site for sample you could have found:  http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=12456726&linkID=9240618

And <duh> how about google?  I googled <AutoDESK REVIT Sample Project> and found this: http://revit.autodesk.com/gallery/commercial/Corporate_Motel/MainFrame.html

 

Just a couple of minute of my time ... but no problem - I have lots.
