BIMON Manufacturers – > Create – Centralize – Digitize

When it comes to talk about Revit Families or the Digital Version of that object, it is done enough these days for a fully digital integration or it still takes time?

How we can fully digitalize libraries?

Until now we know that manufacturers world wide are adapting and creating their BIM Libraries. But what is the ideal BIM Library Creation Strategy?  Are they standardized? And what comes after you’ve created your library?

For all these questions we have created an in depth concept about the BIM Market and of course where this digitalization should go from a manufacturer viewpoint.

Here at EDDBIM AND DIGITAL we have developed a strategy to Create, Centralize and Digitalize manufacturers Libraries:

1. Create / Develop your BIM Library

2. Centralize your BIM Library

3. Digitalize

Things to know about Revit Architecture Template

The very first thing to do when you start your Project in Revit is, to use a Template that comes with Revit Installation, create your own company template from scratch or adapt a template that is already preinstalled.

1.Use Revit Architectural Template1

2.Develop a Company’s Revit Template

It is  recommended that for the best  workflow to have different  templates for different type of constructions:  (Infrastructure , buildings, master plans…) for different  disciplines : Architecture, Structure, MEP …, for different type of construction data  or for Refurbished  Projects where is  a need of using Phases.

Trying to obtain the most from the BIM Process you will have to make use of the latest BIM ISO19650 Standards, Company Standards and BIM Orientated  procedures for continuous development .


Structure to the ideal Revit Template

1. Document centralization

2. Drawing Management :  

  • File Location
  • Custom Revit Template Names and Numbering
  • Custom Revit Elements Names and Numbering
  • Family Management

3. Drafting Styles : Fonts, Dimensions, Leaders, Tags, Labels, Views Representations

4. Drafting Preferences : Line Types, Line Weights, Hatching, Coloring, Filters

5. Defining Project  Template  through  :   

  • Project Browser
  • System Browser
  • System Families
  • Component Families
  • Project Parameters : 
    • Parameters
    • Global Parameters
    • Shared Parameters

6. Automated Documentation: Key Plan Views, Views, Detail Views, Schedules, Legends

7. View Management :

  • Standardizing Vies
  • Set a Company Starting View
  • View Names and Numbering
  • Create a Revit Template Legend View
  • Create a Notes View

8. Elements to Include in Template.

9. What makes  the template  heavier?

10. Identify the Project Origin.

11.Define Your Revit Titleblock with :

  • All Sheet sizes
  • Revision Table
  • Automated Parameters
  • Standardized Data

12. Aligning with Existing CAD Templates
