  10. 10. ALPHA BIM - Revit Plugin Guideline https://alphabimvn.com v2023.1 Page 10 of 143 3. Alpha BIM Features 3.1. Convert AutoCAD to Revit These features help you can automatically build the structural model from AutoCAD linked file. Include: • Model Grid • Model Pile Foundation • Model Slab Foundation • Model Column • Model Wall • Model Framing • Model Floor - Download the AutoCAD sample file for test: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/10rezbqSafeTOCCrkXmXPVIh1614dNlP_?usp=share_ link - Download the example Revit file: https://t.me/alphabim_software/43 3.1.1. Model Grid This feature helps you can automatically create all grids from the AutoCAD link file. Watch the demo here: https://youtu.be/vBetO_zncE0 How to use: Step 1: Go to a plan in Revit and link the AutoCAD file. You can “Link CAD” or “Import CAD”. Suggestion: use “Import CAD” because after using the plugin to create Grid, we will use other plugin to set Grid number faster. Step 2: Select AutoCAD linked file then click “Query” in “Modify” tab then click on a Grid line to copy “Layer/Level” name of the grid line.
  11. 11. ALPHA BIM - Revit Plugin Guideline https://alphabimvn.com v2023.1 Page 11 of 143 Step 3: Press “Ctrl + C” to copy the Layer name of Grid Line. Then select the “OK” button or click to “x” sign to close this dialog. Step 4: Run the command “Model Grid”, then select AutoCAD linked file or you can also preselect AutoCAD linked file and then run the command “Model Grid”
  12. 12. ALPHA BIM - Revit Plugin Guideline https://alphabimvn.com v2023.1 Page 12 of 143 Step 5: In the interface appears as below, press Ctrl + V to paste the layer name that was copied before to the row “Choose Layer of Grid” Minimum Length(millimeter): If the lines in AutoCAD linked file is smaller than this length, this plugin will not create Grid for these Lines. Then click the “OK” button to execute. 3.1.2. Set Name for Grid After the plugin creates the Grid line, the Grids name has not correct with the AutoCAD file. You can use the plugin “Text to Grid” to copy text from AutoCAD linked file to Grid in Revit. Watch the demo here: https://youtu.be/vBetO_zncE0?t=39 How to use: Step 1: First you must “Explode” the AutoCAD file to get the Text of the Grid name Step 2: Go to the tab “Alpha BIM – GEN” then run the command “Text to Element” Step 3: Select all Grids, or you can preselect the Grids that want to set the name as the same with AutoCAD file then click “Finish” button on the upper left corner of the screen.
  13. 13. ALPHA BIM - Revit Plugin Guideline https://alphabimvn.com v2023.1 Page 13 of 143 Step 4: After plugin run successfully, the name of Grids will be set to follow Grid name in the AutoCAD file. If some Grid name can not be set because of error, you can modify Grid name by manually. 3.1.3. Extend Grid through all Level After you created Grids, there is a problem that Grid has not reached all Levels in the model, as image below: Alpha BIM has a plugin to extend all Grids through all Levels automatically. Watch the demo here: https://youtu.be/_jGNIHRUNDU How to use: Step 1: Active plan that you can see all Grids. Go to tab Alpha BIM – GEN, then drop down at “Misc Utils” and click the command “Extend Grids through all Levels” Step 2: Select the Grids that you want to extend, then click the “Finish” button on the upper left corner of the screen.

ALPHA BIM - Revit Plugin Guideline https://alphabimvn.com v2023.1 Page 14 of 143 Step 3: In the interface that appears after that, you select the Top Level, Bottom Level, and Offset distance(millimeter) that Grids will be extended to. Then click “OK” button to complete. 3.1.4. Model Pile Foundation This feature helps you automatically create Structural Pile Foundation model from AutoCAD linked file. Watch a demo here: https://youtu.be/rAneZfxykv4 How to use: Step 1: Link or import the AutoCAD Piling plan file into Revit, on the plan or 3D view. Step 2: Select AutoCAD linked file then click “Query” in “Modify” tab then click Pile line. Then press “Ctrl + C” on the keyboard to copy the layer name.
  15. 15. ALPHA BIM - Revit Plugin Guideline https://alphabimvn.com v2023.1 Page 15 of 143 Step 3: Run the command “Model Pile Foundation” Note: In the Revit Model must have Pile family before running this plugin. After clicking the command “Model Pile Foundation”, you select the AutoCAD linked file. The interface will appear below the image.

  21. 21. ALPHA BIM - Revit Plugin Guideline https://alphabimvn.com v2023.1 Page 21 of 143 Sample model after running this command: 3.1.8. Model Wall This feature helps you automatically create Wall model from AutoCAD linked file. Watch the demo here: https://youtu.be/xvGLdOlaUb0 How to use: Step 1: Link or import AutoCAD Wall Setting Out plan file into Revit, on plan or 3D view. Step 2: Select AutoCAD linked file then click “Query” in “Modify” tab then click hatch face of Wall. Then press “Ctrl + C” on keyboard to copy the layer name.
  22. 22. ALPHA BIM - Revit Plugin Guideline https://alphabimvn.com v2023.1 Page 22 of 143 Step 3: Run command “Model Wall” After clicking the command “Model Wall”, you select the AutoCAD linked file. The interface will appear below the image. Or you can also preselect the AutoCAD file and then run the command “Model Wall” Step 4: Ctrl + V to paste the layer name that was copied before to the row “Choose Layer of Hatch Face of Wall”. Then choose 01, 02, or 03 Wall Type and choose Level of new Wall. After that, click “OK” button to complete. You need to pre-generate all the Wall Types before running this command. The thickness of the Wall Type is equal to the thickness of the Hatch face in the AutoCAD link file. For example, when Hatch in AutoCAD link file has a width of 400mm, you need to create a Wall Type W400 first, with a thickness of 400mm.
  23. 23. ALPHA BIM - Revit Plugin Guideline https://alphabimvn.com v2023.1 Page 23 of 143 Sample model after running this command: 3.1.9.

Watch the demo here: https://youtu.be/FdO_AsD1MGs How to use: Step 1: Link or import the AutoCAD Framing Plan file into Revit, on the plan or 3D view.
  24. 24. ALPHA BIM - Revit Plugin Guideline https://alphabimvn.com v2023.1 Page 24 of 143 Step 2: Select AutoCAD linked file then click “Query” in “Modify” tab then click CAD line of Framing. Then press “Ctrl + C” on keyboard to copy the layer name. Step 3: Run the command “Model Framing” After clicking the command “Model Framing”, you select the AutoCAD linked file. The interface will appear below the image. Or you can also preselect the AutoCAD file and then run the command “Model Framing”
  25. 25. ALPHA BIM - Revit Plugin Guideline https://alphabimvn.com v2023.1 Page 25 of 143 Step 4: Ctrl + V to paste the layer name that was copied before to the row “Choose Layer of Beam”. Then choose Beam Family, width type parameter, and height type parameter,... After that, click “OK” button to complete. You need to fill in the Beam sections that will be built into the model in “All sections of Beam, example: 200x300; 400x600...” The plugin will get the width between the two lines of Beam in the AutoCAD file to put in a section with the corresponding width. So you can only create one Beam section with the same width. For example, if the AutoCAD drawing has 2 sections 300x600 and 300x800, you can only set 300x600 or 300x800 in the “All sections of Beam, example: 200x300; 400x600...” box, and the plugin will only be able to create 01 section with a width of 300. For boundary Beams with only one line showing the Beam width, when you click “Create for Single Line?”, the plugin will get the first section entered in the “All sections of Beam, example: 200x300; 400x600...” to create model.
  26. 26. ALPHA BIM - Revit Plugin Guideline https://alphabimvn.com v2023.1 Page 26 of 143 Sample model after running this command:
