I guess precision is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about Scan to BIM best practices. Although you are correct, after a couple of years diving into this kind of projects, too many factors now come to ours prior to starting any modeling.
Back again, this time we want to share our internal quality control checklist for Revit Models.
Beside all the tools we can find on the web, like Solibri, Model Checker, and so on, this is the list of elements we are used to keep an eye within each model, as well as the list of question we ask ourselves before delivering any Revit project. Hope you find it useful for your daily work!
The truth is that I don’t know how I’ve managed to work in Revit without pyRevit.Ehsan Iran-Nejad’s pyRevit addin gives access to several python’s (IronPython) libraries scripts directly from Revit’s ribbon.
This week we were asked to find a way to report how many elements a specific user had created. For this we code a small python script that uses the Revit API tool WorksharingUtils.GetWorksharingTooltipInfo(Document, ElementID) to return the creator and the name of last user who edited it. (Thanks to JF for the idea)
As you may recall, in our previous posts we talked about Information as key word on BIM processes and projects. Although loading this data might be the funniest part, at a certain point we will find ourselves diving into a deep ocean of information which need to be sorted and checked to accomplish quality standards.
Keeping our own model clean and organized may not be so difficult if we have a few years working in BIM procedures, but when we work with several collaborators and model authors in the same project we should follow some metodologies to check all this information together and make sure that it is coherent and consistent. Today’s recomendation are the interesting Pivot Tables…
