Menambah Asset Material pada Library

Untuk menambah Asset pada Library:

Buka Material Editor
Pada Name Pilih Asset Appearence

Klik kanan dan pilih Duplicate
Jika Asset tersebut tidak digunakan pada mama-mana Material. Massage berikut timbul
Pada Asset ubah Nama kepada Nama baru

Penggunaan Material Pada Revit 2013

Revit 2013 memperkenalkan paparan baru berkaitan Material yang melibatkan beberapa Dialog Box. Untuk mendapatkan material, dari Ribbon:

Manage Tab > Settings Panel > Material

Dialog box yang melibatkan Material:
  • Material Browser
  • Material Editor
  • Asset Browser

Selain itu  ia memperkenalkan beberapa terma Asset data yang melibatkan:

  • Graphics
  • Appearance 
  • Physical 
  • Thermal
Revit 2013 juga telah memperkenaklan Libraries yang boleh di-save dengan fail extension .asdklib.

Penggunaan Asset boleh di-share. Bermakna Asset tersebut boleh digunasama dengan beberapa material yang lain. Sukar untuk menentukan Material mana menggunakan Asset yang sama. Walaubagaimanapun hanya Asset yang digunasama sahaja boleh di-duplicate. Untuk mengatasi perkara tersebut Duplicate material supaya Asset tersebut terdapat pada Material Asal, seterusnya duplicate Asset tersebut pada Material Editor atau Asset Browser. Oleh yang demikian jangan sewenang-wenang merubah Asset tersebut tanpa menggunakan Duplicate dan Rename.

Asset Browser hanya boleh dibuka melalui Material Editor dialog box.

Adalah didapati Material Library yang terdapat di Material Browser dan Asset Browser adalah berbeza, walaupun berasal dari fail yang sama. Ini adalah kerana Library pada Material Browser memaparkan Material manakala pada Asset Browser hanya memaparkan Asset yang berkaitan dengan Material tersebut. Walaubagaimanapun Asset boleh ditambah pada Asset Browser. Update dan Save Library tersebut pada fail adalah Automatik.

Mengenai Butang OK, Cancel dan Apply pada Material Browser,
Butang OK adalah untuk Save dan Keluar dari men-edit Material.
Butang Cancel adalah untuk membatalkan perubahan yang dilakukan.
Butang Apply adalah Save dan kekal dalam Material

Webinar: Performance Based Design - The Energy Modeling Process

Reduce Precision of AutoCAD file for insertion into Revit (too many decimals!) and it has some wacky or imprecise units (like the distance between two walls is 8250.092234897). What you need to do is reduce the precision, such that all the decimal points get 'chopped off'. To do this: Open the offending DWG in AutoCAD. 'Save As' and choose a DXF format. Go to Tools menu - Options (see below) Choose DXF Options, ASCII Format and set the 'Decimal Places of Accuracy' to the desired value (choosing 0 will remove all decimal places): Hit Save. I recommend that you now open the DXF file you saved, and then resave it as a DWG file. Now you can insert your file into Revit, and you won't have to deal with imprecise units. Please note that this process may result in some 'rounding off' of values - you may want to double check the resulting file. I found this process at the following link: Forum Link RELATED POSTS AutoCAD (R) 2012 x64 Service Pack 1 Convert HPGL PLT files to DXF or DWG Sketchup tools - DWG import / export, OBJ importer, IFC impo...

Let's say you have AutoCAD file of unknown origin, and it has some wacky or imprecise units (like the distance between two walls is 8250.092234897). What you need to do is reduce the precision, such that all the decimal points get 'chopped off'....

Just How Accurate is 123D Catch?

Do you remember Autodesk Lab's Project PhotoFly? Well, it has recently graduated into 123D Catch. And it's still free!
The idea behind it is that you can use a digital camera to take pictures of something, load it into this software, and it uses all sorts of black magic and cloud computing to convert these pictures into a real honest to goodness 3D mesh with texture. I used the Labs version to take pictures of a small statue on a co-worker's desk using just the camera on my cell phone and the results were astonishing. You can then take a known dimension on the object to convert it into something that has real size and scale.
But just how accurate is the resulting model? A model generated from nothing more than digital photos.
Well, to help answer that question I thought I'd pass along an article that I recently ran across:

[Asset Creation] Autodesk 123d Catch - pt.1

123D Catch - Create your first project

Project Photofly to 3DS MAX or Navisworks

Using Photofly with Revit and Vasari

Using Photofly with Revit and Vasari

So first lest start with what Photofly is: It is basically the merging of point clouds and photogrammetry. What it does is take a set of photographs of a building and stitches them together in 3D space and figures out the camera locations for each image. Once it does that, it can be used to create a 3D model of the building that is usually accurate enough for basic conceptual design and analysis related to sustainability and engineering. The heavy processing for all of this is done in the cloud and what you install is a small application to view and edit the results of Photofly. You can output the results to a number of file formats that could then be imported into AutoCADRevitVasari3ds Max among others.

BIM Roundtable Discussion

The NBS BIM Research Report found an industry awash with different opinions on what BIM actually is, and what change it could mean for the architecture and construction industries. Following the release of these findings, NBS quickly gathered some key voices and leading industry commentators, including Paul Morrell OBE, around a table to discuss how BIM will impact the construction sector, and how this will lead to a very different, increasingly collaborative approach to building design and management. Watch the discussions and interviews with the contributors now.

Kenapa Lukis di tingkat satu tapi timbul di tingkat 2

Semasa menyediakan pelan siling di tingkat satu, di project browser menunjukkan Ceiling Plan - Tingkat 1. Tetapi setelah siling dilukis tiada siling dapat dilihat. Setelah disemak dengan melihat Section, Komponen siling terbentuk ditingkat 2. Bagaimana ia boleh berlaku begitu. Setelah menyemak kepada lukisan tersebut beberapa tempat tidak dapat penyelesaian, akhirnya cuba dilihat setting Set Work Plane adalah di tingkat 2. Dengan mengubah Working Work Plane kepada Tingkat 1, Setting View tersebut dapat diperbetulkan.

Proses menggunakan Parameter, Filter dan View Template:

1) Sediakan Project Parameter
  • Gunakan On/Off parameter
  • Gunakan Instance
  • Pilih parameter category
  • OK
2) Sediakan Filter
  • Namakan Filter dengan rename
  • Pilih category untuk dilaksanakan (sama seperti parameter)
  • Pilih parameter yang baru dibuat
3) Sediakan View Template dan guna Filter
  • Laksanakan Visibility Graphic yang sesuai 
4) Pada Project Browser copy dan rename View untuk meujudkan View yang dikehendaki.

5) Laksanakan View pada View Windows

6) Pada Object properties ubah perameter yang dikehendaki.

Modular Design Using Revit

Penggunaan Rekabentuk Modular menggunakan kaedah "Modular Coordination" boleh mendapatkan proses rekabentuk yang efektif. Sehingga kini saya belum jumpa lagi kaedah  yang berkesan menggunakan kaedah ini. Kaedah yang ketara adalah kombinasi penggunaan fungsi GROUP, COMPONENT, ASSEMBLY, PARTS dan LINK. Adakah lagi fungsi yang berkesan untuk mencapai rekabentuk modular?

Penggunaan Workset

Penggunaan workset dalam revit adalah satu perkara yang kurang difahami.
Secara asasnya workset digunakan untuk bekerja serentak dengan menggunakan satu fail.
Tetapi bagaimanakah perlaksanaanya?
Ia mesti ada Central Fail dulu.
Selepas itu membina Local Fail.
Meletakkan komponen kepada workset tertentu
Seterusnya berkerja menggunakan workset

Antara Soalan-soalan yang dilemparkan adalah:
Mestikah ia menggunakan Network?
Bagaimana jika tidak mengunakan network?
Siapa yang mengawal Central File?

Antara rujukan saya menggunakan workset:

Isu Rendering dalam Revit

Selepas membangunkan model kita ingin melihat, bagaimana pula finish product dengan melakukan render.
Ada dua kehendak render pertama adalah mendapatkan still image kedua adalah untuk mendapatkan animasi. Kedua-duanya mempunyai kehendak dan proses yang berbeza.

Antara isu nya ialah:
Adakah baik di-render dengan menggunakan 3DS Max.
Bagaimana pula penggunaan Movie Editor seperti Movie Maker, Adobe Premire, Camtasia, VirtualDub
Render menggunakan format untuk animasi dengan avi atau jpg dan seterusnya wmv
Codec untuk compression.
Kaedah render yang menjimatkan masa.
Penyediaan model, lighting dan material
Setting render
Keperluan Hardware dan Graphic card

Berikut adalah antara sumber rujukan mengenai rendering yang berkaitan proses, kaedah/amalan terbaik kualiti dan masa penyediaan.
