When end users have to spend time fixing these visibility issues, they aren’t being productive on other model development tasks. The Invisibility Advisor was purpose built to investigate and resolve visibility issues with components that are hidden in various ways, saving time and frustration. CTC’s Shawn Zirbes will present.

Learning Objectives:

  • Accessing Invisibility Advisor
  • Introduction to Interface

Introduction to Room Data Sheets from the BIM Project Suite

April 9 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Creating Views and laying out sheets is tedious enough without having to repeat the process for every type of room in the model. It is often more convenient to setup the desired views, then just select all desired rooms, knowing that the views and sheets will be generated as expected. Room Data Sheets does just that, allowing a streamlined workflow to generate this information rapidly and consistently.

Learning Objectives:

  • Accessing Room Data Sheets
  • Introduction to Interface
  • Define View Settings and Positions
  • Generate Views and Sheets

Introduction to Survey Template Manager from CIM Manager Suite

April 16 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

CTC’s Brian Levendowski will present. Creation and updating of Description Key Sets and Figure Prefix Databases in Civil 3D can be a slow and error-prone process, as the interfaces leave much to be desired. With Survey Template Manager it becomes much easier by allowing the management of ALL data through an Excel file that syncs to Civil 3D. You can create new, or sync and update existing Description Keys and Figure Prefixes, including Layers, Styles, blocks, and more, all while interfacing through the quick and easy to use interface of Excel.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to export and sync Description Key Sets from Excel
  • Understand how to export and sync Figure Prefix Databases from Excel
  • Manage Codes, Layers, Styles and more through an excel interface
  • Auto-generate Styles from Excel syncing

Introduction to Parameter Jammer from the BIM Project Suite

April 17 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Often users will download content from manufacturer websites. The issue of external content doesn’t always become apparent until the Revit user attempts to display component data in a Revit Schedule. Content built on differing standards often cannot be scheduled in any consistent way causing significant frustration and interruptions in the workflow. Parameter Jammer can resolve most of the data issues with externally sourced content quite easily. This webinar will demonstrate exact tool workflows and how the end users can have much smoother workflows in relation to content. Shawn will present this webcast.

Learning Objectives:

  • Accessing Parameter Jammer
  • Introduction to Interface
  • Define Add-in Options
  • Update Modeled Content for Schedule Compliance

Introduction to Occupant Flow Analyzer from the BIM Project Suite

April 23 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Unfortunately Revit has no way to auto calculate room occupancy and generate egress pathing, accounting for multiple levels. This process typically happens in external tools, or is calculated entirely by hand. The process is not fast, and is often riddled with human error. The Occupant Flow Analyzer does all of these tasks and more. This webinar will demonstrate the entry level controls available to you in this add-in. CTC’s Shawn Zirbes will present.

Learning Objectives:

  • Accessing Occupant Flow Analyzer
  • Introduction to Interface
  • Define Add-in Options
  • Generate Occupancies and Egress Flows

Introduction to Layer Boss from CIM Manager Suite

April 30 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Management of Civil 3D Object Layers and drawing Layers through their native interfaces is clumsy and slow. With Layer Boss you can automate the creation and updating of all Object Layer and Layer settings from an Excel file. Excel files can be exported with all settings from an existing template, then used going forward to manage all Layer settings.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to export and sync Civil 3D Object Layer settings from Excel
  • Understand how to export and sync Layer Manager settings from Excel
  • Quickly manage Layer names, descriptions, plot styles, and all other settings
  • Configure and update all options in the Object Layers dialog box

Introduction to Dimension Checker from the BIM Manager Suite

May 7 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Have you ever run into conflicts in your project models because a dimension reported one value, but the actual modeled space was not consistent with it? This can generate significant issues in actual construction. While Revit does try to protect from this, users can still create overrides that cause conflicts. The Dimension Checker has been purpose built to detect these types of conflicts and generate reports so the responsible party can correct the issue.

Learning Objectives:

  • Accessing Dimension Checker
  • Introduction to Interface
  • Detection Settings
  • Discovery and reporting of problematic dimensions

Introduction to Linetype Manager from CIM Manager Suite

May 14 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Creating and updating Linetype definitions in an AutoCAD .LIN file is not only tedious, but error-prone. Does anyone remember the syntax for this anyway? With Linetype Manager you have a completely new interface for creating and editing linetype definitions in your .LIN file. Through an intuitive and visual interface, CAD Managers can quickly create and edit linetypes in a .LIN file.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to quickly create and edit Linetype definitions without having to work in an .LIN file
  • Create simple, complex, text-based, and Shape-file based Linetypes
  • Visualize linetypes as you're creating them, on the fly
  • Utilize an intuitive, input parameter-based interface to build your linetypes

Introduction to Template Tracker from CIM Manager Suite

May 28 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

From Civil 3D Styles, to AutoCAD Text, Leaders, and Dimensions, finding references to all these style types in a template can be a maze. What if you don’t know where a Text Style is being used? What if you don’t know what Civil 3D Style is using a certain Layer? Template Tracker allows you to quickly track and then edit references to all these style definitions. Brian Levendowski will present.

Learning Objectives:

  • Locate use of Layers in Civil 3D Styles and quickly make edits
  • Track where Text Styles are using in Civil 3D Styles, Blocks, and more, and swap out their usage
  • Quickly swap out drawing objects' use of any Text, Leader or Dimension Styles
  • Rid templates of those old, pesky Layer and Annotation Style references

Introduction to Point File Converter from CIM Project Suite

June 25 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Dealing with multiple survey code lists can be a challenge. Perhaps your crews use one code list and you need to import as another. Perhaps you get outside surveys that need converting to your firm’s code list. Either way, Point File Converter allows quick conversions from one code list to another in your point files. Users can create “translation files” that map the conversion from one list to another so conversions only take seconds.

Learning Objectives:

  • Convert point files from one standard to another in seconds
  • Accommodate both survey and linework coding translations
  • Make your crews happy by using only one code list in the field
  • Save tons of time in dealing with multiple code list standards

Introduction to Sheet Generator from CIM Project Suite

July 16 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Sheet Generator will create Plan and/or Profile sheets, similar to the native Viewframes toolset, but allows dynamic updating of sheets. Users will be able to create “Viewshapes” in Modelspace, then edit them and “push” changes to sheets. Viewport size and position, Profile Views, north arrow, sheet numbering, Matchline text and more, are all dynamically linked to Modelspace “Viewshapes”. Brian Levendowski from CTC will show off this awesome tool included in the CIM Project Suite.

Learning Objectives:

  • Create dynamically-linked Plan and/or Profile sheets
  • Update sheets by editing “Viewshapes” in Modelspace
  • Automatic updating of Viewports, Profiles Views, Sheet Set Fields, Matchlines, and more
  • Automatic Profile Matchline placement & setting of Profile Station/Elevation
