Autodesk Revit Structure Tips & Tricks
Traditional structural engineering firms usually work in two parallel groups: structural engineers who design the structural systems using analysis programs; and structural drafters, who use engineers information to create structural drawings within CAD software. Because the information is transferred manually between these groups, the usual flow of change orders from an architect results in an excessive number of interactions that are prone to introduce errors.***Free Registration Required***

Autodesk Revit: Working Without Layers
Autodesk Revit: Working Without Layers
The lack of layers may be a rude shock to you seasoned CAD users, but take the following tutorial to see how Autodesk Revit pulls this off and then make up your own mind about designing without layers.

Revit - Angle Parameters
Revit - Angle Parameters
This tutorial covers how to add angle parameters. In this case we put them in a curtain panel to break from such an orthogonal grid. Here are they a tilted mullions but one could imagine using a curtain system just and a construction grid then using face based families for more complex systems on top of the grid.

Revit - Parametric Truss System - Part 1
Revit - Parametric Truss System - Part 1
This Revit video tutorial shows how to array a series of voids to create a changing truss system. Rather than thinking of the modeling in components what we are doing here is modeling a solid and using Revit’s cut geometry tool to slice a solid into stick members. The only catch to this techniques is that each truss has a slight slant on the top and bottom. This is something that i willing to look past since i figure it will be lost in the line weight. Once this model needs to transfer to a higher lever of precision i would consider another modeling technique. As a design tool this technique allows for quick iteration while maintaining the design intent. This is the first part of a two part series the second video will dive deeper in using formulas to drive the spacing and thickness of trusses (and why it’s in a line based family:)).

Revit - Missing Grids in Elevation
Revit - Missing Grids in Elevation
So…. Have you ever had the problem where your grid lines will NOT show up in elevations?!?!?! This is of course after you have checked your VG settings and maximized 3d extents, still NOTHING! Chances are the elevation view is not perpendicular to the grid lines. In most cases this makes sense, how is the program going to know where you want to intersect the infinite planes of the grid lines. In this Revit tutorial I establish the point of intersection as the point where the site boundary and grid line intersect. Once that rule has been established, we cover how to create a generic family that is placed in plan and is visible in the elevations. Through the use of tags and parameters we coordinate the naming of the grid to assure they match on the plans and elevations. I think this is an interesting issue to solve and am sure people have options on this so please feel free to post your thoughts or comments on this technique or even whether this should be done at all.

Autodesk Revit: Creating Custom Relationships And Constraints
Autodesk Revit: Creating Custom Relationships And Constraints
In this issue, we will explore the power of relationships further, and you will learn how to define custom relationships such as dimensional constraints, alignments, and attachments between components. These types of parametric relationships are also maintained when you modify drawings. You can use these intelligent relationships to significantly enhance your efficiency and productivity and deliver better designs in the process.
