The Return of Extreme Revit Families - Andekan » Blog

Hopefully something to look forward to for AU2009. Classes from the best Revit content creators on the planet. Let me know if you'd like these classes presented to your company before AU in December.

****

A year goes by quickly and the time has come again to submit proposals for classes at Autodesk University 2009. Following on last year’s “Extreme Revit Families” we’ve submitted a total of 13 proposals this year. See them below and be sure to vote for your favorite ones. For instructions on how to vote, see the paragraph at the end of this post.

Extreme Revit® Families
Amazing Arithmetic In Monster Models… That Performs!

Presented by Adam Pointer

If you didn’t pass Math-101 this class is not for you. You will learn how to use mathematics to overcome modelling issues, like how to place perpendicular geometries equidistant around a curve of changing angles and length, all within the Revit Family Editor. You will be taken through the higher levels of Revit formulae to achieve amazing parametric results without hindering large Revit projects performance. The what should and shouldn’t be done with formulas!

Extreme Revit® Families
Bring life to Revit with moveable families from medical equipment and cranes to humans

Presented by Adam Pointer

In this lab you’ll learn all you need to begin building highly complex moveable families form truck-based cranes to medical diagnostic equipment to people. Right through from the planning stages and pre-modelling analysis to armature construction and attaching/controlling the ‘skin’.

Extreme Revit® Families
Building A Restricted Bend

Presented by Tracie Sherlock

In this lab you will get hands-on experience building a manufacturer specific pipe bend with restricted angles containing over 100 variations! Including correct usage and integration of lookup tables and formulae. If you are a Plumbing Engineer, also sign up to our Extreme Revit® Families: How To Create Working Sanitary Fittings… Without Going Insane!

Happy Families — Overcoming Issues in the Family Editor

Presented by Stefan Hergert

Have you ever felt dismayed by the quirks of Revit’s Family Editor? Ever wondered why your file size has leapt maliciously from a reasonable 300k to 1642k after you added a single model line? Have you ever had to build a family with moving parts and then had the armature fall to pieces for not good reason? Then this is the class for you. You will be shown all the tricks that we’ve accumulated over the two and a half years of working in the Family Editor on a daily basis. This class will give you the ability to identify problems and rectify them quickly, speeding up your Family creation workflow and eliminating costly reworking.

How To Create Working Sanitary Fittings… Without Going Insane!

Presented by Jonathan Lloyd

Thanks to the popularity of last year’s Extreme Revit Families: Pipe Fittings I & II, we are returning this year with a lab to better cover this ever-necessary subject matter. In this lab we will learn how to convert a Restricted Pipe Bend into a fully functioning Sanitary Bend. We will also go from beginning to end building a Sanitary Tee. Both of these families will work with inclined pipes, unlike so many generic fittings available.

Extreme Revit® Families
Manufacturers… Get Ready to Publish!

Presented by Jose Fandos

This panel will discuss best practices for the creation, maintenance and publishing of manufacturer-specific content libraries.

Extreme Revit® Families
Textures & Mapping — Lighten the load in your projects

Presented by Tracie Sherlock

This class is designed to assist those Revit professionals out there who need to be able to minimize family sizes while maintaining high-levels of rendering and detail within their models for presentation purposes. Learn when, where and how to integrate usage of textures in Revit, minimise project overload and sharing of materials between your families.

Extreme Revit® Families
The Light Fantastic — Better, Lighter Lighting Families

Presented by Adam Morren

Learn how to take lighting fixtures to the next level. Understand how to choose exactly what physical features to model to get the look you need without the weight that you don’t. You’ll learn material manipulation tricks and how-to for photometric web placement to get the renders looking just right.

Extreme Revit® Families
What Do I NEED(LEED)? What and When to ‘BIM’ in Revit Families Schedules

Presented by Richard Armstrong-Wood

In this class you’ll learn to identify data from spec sheets for a variety of BIM-able products that can be integrated into the Revit suite. Many types of units cannot be used from lookup tables, an enormously useful data-source in Revit Family building, in this class you’ll see how to build lookup tables with all manner of data and convert it in-family into useable analysable units. Learn how to prepare your content to help you with LEED.

Extreme Revit® Families
Electrical

Presented by Adam Pointer

Learn how to create extremely useful, visually appealing, and schedulable electrical trays and ladder-rack families. In-depth, step-by-step instructions to create them from scratch, how to choose the right template for the job, when to use type catalogs and/or lookup tables, how to create formulas, and best practices for metadata, shared parameters, naming conventions, and content organization.

Extreme Revit® Families
Piping, Part I

Presented by Richard Armstrong-Wood

Learn how to create extremely elegant and performing fittings and accessories. In-depth step-by-step instructions to create them from scratch, how to choose the right template for the job, when to use type catalogs and/or lookup tables, how to create formulas, and best practices for metadata, shared parameters, naming conventions, and content organization.

Extreme Revit® Families
Piping, Part II

Presented by Jonathan Lloyd

Learn how to create extremely elegant and performing fittings and accessories. This session will provide In-depth, step-by-step instructions to create them from scratch, how to choose the right template for the job, when to use type catalogs and/or lookup tables, how to create formulas, and best practices for metadata, shared parameters, naming conventions, and content organization.

Extreme Revit® Families
Parametric Family Building in Revit for Beginners

Presented by Jonathan Lloyd

You know you need to get in to Revit, you’ll also know you’ll need a lot of content to use the software to its fullest. In this lab you’ll learn how to build fully parametric Revit Family from absolute zero. You’ll gain insight into the form creation tools and how to constrain the geometry so that it re-sizes and flexes smoothly. You’ll also go away knowing how to get the technical data that you and your team needs from the spec-sheets into your families so that you can run calculations on your systems.
