Site and Project Setup REVIT CCP WORKSHOP 1 – SITE & PROJECT SETUP SUPPORT@MODENA.CO.ZA WORKSHOP 1 – SITE & PROJECT SETUP In this workshop we are going to look at a few things that relate to setting up your project with the correct co-ordinates and levels. We are also going to look at how to use a DWG from a land surveyor inside of Revit and how to build the topography from it. Lastly we will be looking at Cut and Fill calculations of the topography. We will start with the DWG from the land surveyor. Most DWGs that we want to import or link into our Revit drawings come in off-scale, they leave a very wide or large space in our floor plans and sometime they are a couple of thousand meters hi. This is what you get if the DWG has not been cleaned up properly in AutoCAD. When requesting a DWG from a surveyor or other consultants ask that they draw it in the following manner and information; a. b. c. d. e. f. g. h. i. The drawing must start at 0.0 origin on AutoCAD The contour lines must be poly lines that are one continuous line per contour The contour lines must have elevations They must indicate the units used They must indicate the horizontal and vertical grids ( longitude & latitude lines with values) Contour values indicated Co-ordinates of the cadastral information ( to check position in Revit) The scale of the drawing in model space must be 1:1 The orientation must be indicated Tel : 086 166 3362 Fax : 086 567 2315 e-mail : shaun@modena.co.za Physical Address : 5 Pont Road, Bryanston, Johannesburg Page 1 of 33
