What to expect during the event
Are you a BIM Manager, BIM Coordinator, or even an end user who is in-charge of the Revit model? As projects are getting larger and more complex, and project delivery timetables are getting shorter, we find it easy to push aside the need to perform comprehensive reviews of our Revit models.
Revit Warnings in ANY language can be a problem. Failure to manage the warnings in your Revit project could result in poor performance and slow synchronization times. We will break Revit warnings into 3 categories and show examples of how to manage and fix these warnings using the tools in out-of-the-box Revit and some third-party software
As time continues to push on, model reviews and cleanups take longer, or are missed altogether, which can lead to delays, file corruption and missed deadlines.
In this presentation & discussion, we will review some of the strategies and tactics for ensuring your models are kept lean and in good health, including:
• Review the importance of addressing health concerns in your Revit models and why it is important to
add periodic health-checks as part of your BIM Execution Plans.
• Review key areas that should be included as part of your periodic Revit model health-checks.
• Review some of the pitfalls and built-in features that can lead to poor model health, such as certain
modelling behaviors and native commands.
• Discuss which warnings can be more critical to the health of your project and which warnings can be
• Visualise the health check data in PowerBi.
- Understand which issues can affect model health.
- Learn how to resolve and purge difficult to manage issues Including Object and Line styles.
- Understand why reviewing Revit warnings are critical to the health and success of your Revit projects.
- Decipher and break-down the multitude of warnings and fixes needed.
- Learn how Ideate Software for Revit products might assist with the Revit model health check and review
of Revit warnings.
