The 5th Dimension of BIM

Reduce Your Intelligent BIM Models to Spreadsheets

A lot of professionals in the built sector today knows how to create visually appealing 3D models. But only a few know how to create information-rich, intelligent BIM models. But even more importantly is how to extract as much information as you need from BIM Models with few clicks of a button. This course explores the different types of Schedules you can create from Revit. How to go beyond the parameters that come with Revit and create custom parameters for your schedules. How to calculate construction materials, and so much more. The course also touches on how to create Legends and document all these in sheets, and also export them to excel for further use.
