Do the courses cover ground beams, piles, precast floors and trusses

I've worked through the beginners course and other YouTube vids and am now on with my next live (real) project in Revit. It's a three storey housing development; cavity walls, on ground beams with piles, precast floors, trussed roof (some normal, some attic trusses).

Undertaking a project such as this previously I'd have done in AutoCAD with 1:50 GA's, 1:50/1:20 sections and 1:10/1:5 details as required. Even with my 1:50 GA sections I will show ground beams (and dotted pile outlines) in section, precast floor units (with longitudinal voids) and trusses in the roof space etc. 

I do not want to compromise on my (hard earned and developed) graphical presentation style so would like to show the same in Revit. I don't though want to sketch these details into each view, I want these elements (families) added correctly into the model. 

So my question is whether any parts of the course cover these areas? If so, which courses?

Hi,

I haven't yet covered these topics as they are venturing into the realms of Revit Structure.  However certainly for the foundations- you have all the tools you need, even in Revit LT. If you check out the Structure Menu- you'll find a "Foundation" panel that covers strip foundations and piles.

Once you have added these elements to your model, it's just a case of playing around the View Range Settings and using the Linework tool- in order to create plans showing dotted ground beam edges, etc.

Hope this helps,

Kind regards,

Ian
