Speaker Bio

Better known as “The Revit Geek”, Brian has spent more than 25 years in the AEC industry, more than 10 of which have been focused on Revit and BIM. After nearly a decade of working with Architects and Engineers to advance BIM in their companies, Brian started his BIM consulting company in 2011 to focus on custom high-level training and mentoring. Brian has clients all over the US and Canada that generally tolerate his sarcastic nature in exchange for his wide breadth of BIM knowledge. Brian showcases his love of talking about Revit, or maybe just his love talking, in a monthly light-hearted, occasionally irreverent, free Q&A webcast, Revit Radio.

AS323927 - Case Study of Design, Documentation, and Construction of Curved Stone Wall This class will illustrate an integrated design and construction process achieved through using a more advanced method of the modeling and documentation of a curved stone wall for a courthouse building. 2D documentation of the complex geometries might not lead into the most efficient workflow between the design/construction team. The case study—Johnson County Courthouse in Olathe, Kansas—demonstrates using adaptive component families in Revit software to model, document, and construct a 40 foot by 440 foot curved stone wall with punched openings. This class will explain the modeling method of the wall in Revit, the documentation for the contactor, and the construction of the wall on the jobsite. Using an adaptive component family (Revit), different types of stone panels in the curved wall were modeled precisely according to design intent and were placed and repeated on the parametric rig. The conclusion will be lessons learned in this project, and an examination of the pros and cons of this method. 60 Minutes Industry Talk Zahra Hosseinabadi

AS322141 - Creating Intelligent Details in Revit Everyone knows that Revit software is a BIM (Building Information Modeling) program and that it has intelligence when modeling. But this intelligence is sometimes lost when creating details. In this session, we’ll show how to create intelligent details using detail components and nested detail components. In doing this, we’ll be able to keynote these elements to maintain a consistent noting procedure, and send this information out to our spec writer so that even the detailed items aren’t missed in the specs. If keynoting isn’t your choice, we’ll also cover how to tag these elements so that there’s consistent notation of the details on every project. Those workflows along with adding filters to views can streamline and add more consistency to projects. 60 Minutes Instructional Demo Brian Mackey
