  • This is a real customer’s workflow. They need to manage all these updates and they want a sync to GIS for their floorplans. (Washington State U)
  • 1. Model Checking - As we slowly move toward models being deliverables we are struck by a lack of technologies available to set requirements for what information must be in the models and what elements must be modeled. Our goal of using FME is to create standard work spaces on FME Server that accept 2 inputs; 1: A formatted excel file that indicated require attributes, acceptable values for those attributes and elements that must be modeled that are specific to projects. 2: RVZ file(s) that represents a current snapshot of the project that can be compared to the requirementsThe output of this process could be 3D PDF’s illustrated deficiencies in by color type. Excel Reports or number of other file formats.2. Revit DWG/DGN to “Classic DWG” set. One of the difficulties in working with Revit is that sheet outputs from Revit don’t contain a hierarchical set of drawings. Instead each sheet is a small snapshot of the information being shown in the view. So as example DWG export sheets don’t referenced a shared structural grid. We have clients all around the world that require these sets. We often have to manually reconstruct them. While FME doesn’t offer all the tools needed to do these translations it does provide methods of getting the process started.3. Layered PDF/GeoReferencedPDF- Sheets from Revit – Revit doesn’t create very rich PDF files from sheets as it flattens all elements into a single vector layer. This eliminates the ability to interrogate them by turning on and off layers in the PDF it also makes them pretty dumb documents. Using DWG/DWF we could potentially export them on a routine basis to FME and have “Smart” PDF’s generated. Elements like Rooms could be attributed that they could become useful in other field and downstream workflows. (Both 2 and 3 would require “Paper Space” support if DWG was used)4. Firm Data Capture – We are a big firm and clients expect with size comes knowledge of trends and innovations that happen across projects. Currently we have a hard time capturing both end state and iterative design knowledge of the work we produce. We’d look to use FME to extract data from models and put specific information into both project and firm wide data repositories. These could include SQL Databases. IFC Servers, SharePoint and so on. This is sort of a “Big Data for AEC” effort that we are trying to work through.
  • Just indicate there is a new button added to Revit – happens when we install FME 2014 and Revit is present…a standalone no-license-needed installer is also coming, will be downloadable from Safe
  • Play the movie and talk through it.
  • Show the input excel file of dates, and the resulting PDF. If time, show the .rvz input in data inspector first as well. Show onlh flow terminals, always a crowd pleaser.
  • Show the resulting KML (kmz) in Google Earth
  • Don’t actually show anything for this one, just enough to mention it can be done.
  • Show only the resulting PDF
