Existing Conditions Modeling for Operations Layout and Planning
This course introduces the topic of existing conditions modeling in the context of operations layout and planning. You will learn how an existing Revit designs can be simplified and exported in a 2D format to facilitate operations layout in the context of the existing facility. For cases where there is no existing CAD data for the facility, the course also covers how 3D scan data of a facility can be used to develop a PointCloud model in ReCap. Both methods ensure design teams have an accurate representation of the existing facility before beginning the operations layout and planning process.
Having completed this course, you will be able to:
- Apply workflows to simplify an existing Revit design and export in an AutoCAD consumable format
- Create a ReCap Project and register 3D scan data.
Before you start
- Please make sure you have the Revit and ReCap Professional software loaded.
- If you have technical difficulties, please reach out to product support.
In this module, you will learn how facility sections can be defined within an existing Revit model using 3D views. For the purposes of operations layout and planning, this process allows us to share specific portions of the Revit model to design teams collaborating on the factory design project.
In this module, you will learn how the level of detail for an existing Revit model can be managed using Categories and Subcategories. This process allows us to control exactly what Revit data we want to share with collaborating design teams and ensure models are provided with an appropriate level of detail.
In this module, you will learn how to export a 2D representation of the simplified 3D view of the assembly. This process allows us to then utilize the facility layout within AutoCAD so that we can then plan the operations layout using Factory Design Utilities.
This module provides an overview of ReCap Professional. You will learn how to set up a new project and configure project options in preparation for importing laser scan files.
This module will explain how to import raw laser scan data files from scanning equipment into ReCap.
