Topics Covered in the RTC AUS and RTC NA 2013 Site Topography Lab Titled: "A Match Made in Revit : Hardscape Meets Landscape"

Below are some of the topics I will be covering in a lab I will be teaching at both the RTC AUS and RTC NA 2013 events. The lab is titled:

The lab will cover how to place elements in Revit to create walls, fences, roads, curbs, planters, walking paths and other hardscape elements that follow the exact shape of the site topography. This lab only uses Revit. Therefore, no other program or 3rd party add in for Revit is used in this lab.

The following topics will be discussed among others.....
  • Walls that follow the shape of complex site topography elements
  • Straight Roads and curbs (in plan) that follow the shape of site topography elements 

  • Helical Shaped Walking Paths and Fencing that follow the shape of site topography elements

  • Planters and Planter walls shaped like the RTC logo that follow the shape of site topography elements

Note: I recently found out how to make hardscape elements follow site topography even if they move. It involved one extra step. Want to learn more? Attend my lab at RTC.

I would like to give a special thanks to Jay Zallan for letting me know that some elements "do" follow site topo. Thanks Jay!
See the video below and try to make plans to attend The Revit Technology Conference this year. 

 Also, be sure to sign up for this hardscape lab, space is limited. If the lab is full, don't worry, you may still be able to see the session. Get on the waiting list to get a seat with a computer, ask to be placed in a seat without a computer and bring your own labtop, or just listen to the session as a lecture. See you all there!

Hi Marcello. Are you willing to explain how you made hardscape elements update even when they move on a topo surface? Or do we have to wait for an official unveiling at AU?

Btw, I've been reading through a lot of your content today, and it's absolutely amazing. Thanks for all your lessons!

I will be showing how to do this at AU2013. Thank you

how you use this tool for CD's I like the tool but when it comes to "floor pattern" it is hard to get to work

I saw the conference very interesting, but question, how you manage to make the pattern for the floor to work as far of construction documents?

Hi Marcello,

I don't know if you will see this, but do you have this classes in video like Youtube or something else?

I'm very interested in learning how to make these models.
