Structural Engineers Co-Author Structural Models in Revit
When architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers, and civil engineers all collaborate on a building project, they must share information about the design, so that all teams are working with the same assumptions. In this course, you will learn better ways to collaborate to be more efficient with BIM as a structural engineer.
In this Initial Setup module, we’re going to present a workflow in which we are structural engineers, and we shall be receiving a building design from the architects and a proposed system routing from the MEP engineers. We shall use information from these models to begin our structural design.
In this module, you will learn how to select which walls and floors are to be considered part of the structural frame, from the architect’s model, and copy them over to the structural model. You will then learn how to add the building core, beams, columns, and braces.
In this module, you will learn how to get model building foundations ready for structural analysis by starting with the bearing walls in the foundation. Next, add isolated foundation pads with and without piers. Complete the sub-structure model with strip foundations underneath the bearing walls.
