Precast ConcreteOver the past several months, we've held webinars about modeling and documenting precast concrete slabs, walls, columns and beams in Revit®. With our Precast Concrete BIM Solution, you can split floors into various types of slabs and divide walls into panels. Distribute connectors, cuts, plates, supports, anchors, grout tubes and other details en masse according to predefined rules, and then modify details to match the level of detail required. Automatically sort elements according to predefined rules. And finish off by generating shop drawings with automated dimensions, views, schedules, and sheets.

If you missed those webinars or would like to see them again, we'll be more than happy to send a link to the recording. Contact us HERE.

Meanwhile, here's a set of short videos we've produced that give a brief look at each aspect of our Precast software.

In this article, I will go through a few ways you can apply Revit add-ons from our Precast Concrete solution (compatible with Revit® 2016, 2017, 2018) to deal with the design of Precast Massive/Solid and Sandwich Walls.

Our Precast Concrete solution includes tools for inserting details, cuts, and connections; sorting columns and beams automatically; and preparing shop drawings with automated dimensions and sheets.

Let's begin by taking a look at a couple of examples of how to work with walls.

First of all, if your building has full-length Revit walls, you have to split them into separate panels. You can do that by switching to Smart Walls and using the Split Wall window commands for automatic or selectable splitting of walls.
