SEU BIM Forum: Tips & Tricks in Revit Structure – Beams And Braces in Revit Structure

August 26, 2020 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Speaker: Betsy Werra
E.L.Werra Consulting

This SEU BIM Forum session will demonstrate various ways to create and add different types of parametric beams and braces using the structural framing families. During the session, Betsy Werra will show the beam, beam system, and brace tools for placing these types of elements. She will cover editing profiles, updating parametric properties, and changing symbolic representation for structural framing elements, as well as displaying various information for all beam/brace framing tags. This session will delve deep into the family editor for customizing structural framing families, so it will be important for attendees to have some knowledge about families such as reference planes, reference lines, formulas, form creation, and the creation of parameters.


Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the difference between adding a beam and a brace element to a Revit model.
  • Understand how to edit/change structural framing members by using the beam/brace properties, family editor and modification options.
  • Identify how to display the symbolic representation and tag information for beams and braces.


Handout and registration emails for this session will be sent to SE University companies on Friday, August 21st.
