Bradley BIM Team Targets Biggest Revit Family Quality Concerns

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Mar 18, 2016 5:53:00 AM

The Bradley BIM Team emphasis (target) for the Bradley Revit Family Library; has been

  • Revit Family-Type stability and

  • Revit Family dimensional accuracy.

How many times have you downloaded a Revit family, inserted it into your project and then it visually "falls apart" as you switch between the Family Types?

How many times has your downloaded Revit family been dimensionally wrong (length, width, height)?

Over the last 10 years, these are 2 of the biggest concerns Revit users have given for NOT using pre-built, user and/or manufacturer Revit families (including, my projects)

These 2 quality concerns were the main design targets of the Bradley Revit-BIM Team!

What is the Best Timeline for Upgrading Revit Software

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Jul 9, 2012 5:15:54 AM

What is the Best Timeline for Upgrading Revit Software?

Here's the 7-point recommendation I've usually offered to BIM Managers and posted for this discussion in the Revit Users LinkedIn Group:

I usually ask my clients to review & consider these points; prior to upgrading.

  • "How will a Revit product upgrade affect your project's current timelines and team members?"
  • If a project's print or submittal milestone date is looming in the next 30-45 days, I don't recommend an upgrade...especially for larger project teams.
  • If the project is long term and does not have an immediate print/submittal milestone; the PM/PA is consulted to discuss a potential switch date of a project's Revit version with his/her entire team (design, engineering, contractor).
  • I encourage BIM Managers to "look out" 3-6 months from December --and review new incoming projects that may be acceptable for the next Revit version. Based on software subscription dates; Autodesk software is updated each March-April.
  • During this time, BIM Managers should review, "What current or future projects should be considered for upgrade or to be started on the newest version of software?"
  • I suggest that Revit\BIM Managers consider participating with Autodesk's Beta programs as they can be helpful to "kicking the tires" early using test equipment to anticipate any training, equipment or process changes to the project team(s).
  • Most (IT & Project Teams) agree that they will wait until the first service pack...re-patching an installed release is disruptive. However, the First Customer Shipment (FCS) version is used to do final testing of deployment images, upgraded Revit standards, project testing, equipment upgrades and training update materials.

My recommendation is based on technically supporting and consulting the Revit upgrade process with hundreds of Revit-based design firms since 2002.
