Using Revit for Interior Design – Part 4 of 4
In this part we will be looking at how you can create documentation of your model and discuss the Building Information Modelling workflow and how you can get involved in this workflow.
All plans, layouts, internal elevations, and details can be done with ease as Revit uses the 3D model to generate the floor plans, sections and elevations. You further create callouts or detail views from these main views, change the scale and draw the details using Revit’s powerful 2D tools.
An example of the powerful documentation tools inside Revit is placing 1 Revit Elevation View marker in plan to generate 4 internal elevation 2D views of a room as shown below.
Using Revit allows you to link with other stakeholders and disciplines via BIM360 cloud system or simply just via sharing the Revit model data with them.
This allow you to not work in silo but be included in the BIM workflow. The BIM workflow is used primarily in larger projects giving you the opportunity to be involved in these larger projects.
As you can see Revit is a tool that fits the Interior Designers workflow and has many benefits, from the initial design and presentation to creating documentation. One important benefit is that by using a BIM authoring tool like Revit opens the door for you to be included in the BIM workflow in larger projects. And this opportunity should not be missed.
