Did you know that PG Bison’s full catalogue is available as a downloadable materials library?

Revit is an advanced parametric 3D CAD modelling platform. Adrian Fouché, Solutions Sales Consultant at Micrographics, says it drives efficiency and accuracy across the project lifecycle, from conceptual design through to visualisation, and from analysis to fabrication and construction.

“It automatically updates floor plans, elevations, and sections as your model is developed and handles routine and repetitive tasks with automation so you can focus on higher-value work,” he explains. “Most other modelling tools simply utilise lines, arcs and circles to generate a CAD model. Revit uses component design, with intelligence behind each component to allow for analysis of the model both in and of itself as well as the environment within which the project will be built. For example, importing of historical weather data can be used to analyse sun paths, shadows, heating and cooling, etc. to analyse best modelling techniques to harness natural airflow, sun for lighting and heating, etc. It further integrates with all converged technologies from Autodesk, so all project stakeholders are able to use CAD design tools that suit their individual professions, and yet share data between each other to co-ordinate models and eliminate clashes at pre-construction design level.”

Everyone involved in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) value chain benefits from one another’s expertise working by using Revit, which can help to minimise model rework and time-consuming efforts to co-ordinate construction level activities. This is because Revit caters for multiple disciplines within the software by using a common design platform, but with discipline-specific toolsets.

For architects, designers and other Revit users, PG Bison has created a materials library that contains all our latest products and designs, as well as a “how-to” guide. You can access these here.
