Revit Implementation Secrets - 10 Best Revit Process Features

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Apr 27, 2016 6:57:00 AM

The secret to successfully implementing Revit is choosing Revit process features; that offer the best initial financial benefits early in the CAD-to-Revit transition process.

If Revit can substantially outperform your CAD software for creating documentation; why not start using Revit to draw faster and improve your documentation integrity and quality?

Here's my list of the ten best process features in Revit; that can offer the biggest Return On Investment (ROI) in the initial phase of Revit implementation.

  1. Automatic Sheet set Management and Tag Coordination

  2. Automated Floor Planning Tools

  3. All Model & Sheet Views Update When the Revit Model is Edited

  4. Annotation Graphics Resize Based on View Scale

  5. Power of Parametric Dimensioning

  6. Pre-built Building Product Manufacturer Model Libraries

  7. Building Schedules Synchronize\Auto-Update With Model Changes

  8. Views: Independent & Automated Visibility Controls

  9. Multiple people can simultaneously Access and Edit the Project File

  10. Link DWG Files Into Revit Project

I established this list more than ten years ago; to help my Revit clients maximize their Return-On-Investment (ROI) on their "Revit Pilot-Project" implementations.

Many of these Revit process features and associated functionality -- do not exist in other CAD or object-based software programs. Clients immediately reaped the financial rewards (faster drawing, reduced labor) from using these processes on their first pilot projects.

The Bradley BIM Team uses this Revit Tagging and Revit Scheduling test process as part of our Quality Assurance Process prior to adding families to the Bradley Revit Library.

 

1) Bradley Revit Family Components are loaded into a Revit test project. (*.rvt)

2) Next, Revit families are inserted into Revit test floor plans views,
