Videos: Construction Documents for Structural Engineering

To complete the following exercises, students will need to download the datasets at the bottom of this page. They will also need headphones if they are in a lab setting among other computers.

 

 

 

 

Exercise 6.1 Overview Construction Documents

Watch the video that introduces construction documents as you follow along in Revit. It will give an overview of what will be covered in the subsequent videos.

 

Exercise 6.2 Plans, Elevations, Sections, and Details  

Start Revit and open the dataset file SE_Unit6_IMPERIAL.rvt or SE_Unit6_METRIC.rvt. Watch the video that compares the different graphical views found in construction documents.

 

Exercise 6.3 Schedules and Plan Notes 

Start Autodesk Revit Structure and open the dataset file SE_Unit6_IMPERIAL.rvt or SE_Unit6_METRIC.rvt. Watch the video that introduces non-graphical data and demonstrates the use of schedules and plan notes. 

 

Exercise 6.4 Sheets 

Start Revit Structure and open the dataset file SE_Unit6_IMPERIAL.rvt or SE_Unit6_METRIC.rvt. Watch the video that introduces sheets. Follow along the video demonstrates sheet creation and editing.
