GENERATIVE COMPONENTS – DWG EXPORT TIPS

DWG> GENERIC FAMILY > INTO REVIT PROJECT

  •  Massing cannot be applied to surfaces
  • But there seems no need to be able to do that
  • Cuts in all views
  • Can dimension. Aligned dimensions work best – since twist can cause elements to no longer be parallel to screen work plane. Arcs can be dimensioned if cut, like Revit. Create point as work around.
  • Better when updated, since massing is not reformed.
  • Obviously changes made on reload will mean dimensions are lost. Small price to pay for flexibility and re-generation speed of form
  • Fabrication plans can be imported into Revit
  • Fabrication readings of x,y and z co-ordinates can be reported in schedule format through GC.
  • Layers can be switched off in VG to create various set-out drawings – like structural versus glazing etc.
