TSI User Group 2014 Making the Switch CADmep to Revit with SysQue – YouTube
Customer Presentation: Making the Switch: Jumping from Fabrication CADmep to Revit with SysQue
Tom’s presentation will cover PCI Skanska’s implementation of SysQue, the transition from CADmep, the challenges and benefits of this progression, and its potential benefit to a large-scale and diversely located company such as Skanska USA.
After attending this session, attendees will be able to:
• Recognize the benefits of working in Revit
•See the big picture Revit setup:
-Workshared project template
-Overview of shared parameters for a company
-Library creation of details and schedules
• Understand pipe systems setup for a company
• See what a contractor could expect from a Revit model
• Leverage the data in a Revit Model
