Quickstart for Revit

The CG Visions’ Quickstart Residential Startup Kit for Revit was created specifically for home builders to achieve the efficiency and productivity anticipated from their investment in BIM.

The CG Visions’ Quickstart Residential Startup Kit for Revit was created specifically for home builders of North America who are either new to Revit or have used Revit for some time yet still struggle to achieve the efficiency and productivity anticipated from their investment in BIM. The content supplied within the Startup Kit should allow a home builder (big or small, production or custom) to hit the ground running with minimal upfront customization time to create a proper construction document set while further leveraging the information to enhance an estimation workflow. This is not a one size fits all package, but is meant to be a stepping stone for developing sound habits and workflows while refining the tools to best reflect your company’s specific brand and business requirements.

Quickstart Overview

Reference projects prove to be an invaluable resource when planning out a workflow for your design team. The Residential Startup Kit comes with a Design Option enabled master project and a lot specific project created from the master. The Kit also provides .PDFs of the document sets, marketing handouts and key measure take-offs created from both projects.

Samples Include:

  • Master Project
  • Lot Specific Project
  • PDF Construction & Marketing Documents
  • Excel & XML Quantities

Revit Templates

The Family library contained within the residential Startup Kit provides an array of system and loadable Family Types that support a wide variety of common building styles found in North America today.

With the construction documentation needs of both the production builder and custom builder in mind, the residential Startup Kit provides a template for both workflows. The templates are preconditioned to produce document sets & key measures similar to the samples provided. They fully support architectural and electrical documentation with additional “Lite” structural and marketing documentation. They are also streamlined for arch D output size and use imperial units.

Revit Families

Much of the Revit content has been preconditioned for a Pipeline estimation workflow.

This means that several custom parameters and naming conventions have been applied to various Family categories which allow the Pipeline X-RAY Add-In to connect them to Pipeline giving your estimation team the essential key measures they require. Developed under a “practical lens”, the level of detail provided has been optimized to support construction documentation & estimation but not photo realistic rendering or MEP workflows.
