Revit – Annotation (Weld Symbol)

January 26, 2014

I’ve just added a “Weld Symbol” annotation to the A.I. Dropbox.

You can access it by requesting to be added to the A.I. drop box here (http://www.arch-intel.info/contact.html).

The family link, “How to Use” descriptive and Weld Symbols legend can be found here, http://www.arch-intel.info/revit-families.html

The Youtube I posted on this family can be directly accessed here, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P81CUAJJPMA&feature=youtu.be

Although we don’t do much in the way of welding, as architects, the complexity of these symbols can be a graphic pain-in-the-backside when we do need to make these callouts.  Hopefully this little gem will make that process a little easier.

Cheers to Detailing
Carl

3DA Systems – 3D PDF Converter Product review.

January 25, 2014

Just posted a review of this product at Arch-Intel you might want to check out.

The 3D PDF Converter for Revit works as an add-0n and has great potential.

On a simple, new project the program would probably work fine but I hit the performance wall in a number of areas that proved to be shortcomings of the application.

If you group elements in your model, use phases (existing / new) or want to have nested families processed in your 3D PDF then you’ll need to wait for the upgrade.

Expanded review and comparison image in the review link.

Not so 3PDF’d
