1. General information

Platforms

lindab | we simplify construction

LindabRevitTools 2016 is designed for Autodesk Revit Architecture 2016 and Autodesk Revit Structure 2016.

Editions

The extension is available in two editions; Standard and Professional.

The Standard Edition is optimized for architects. It contains tools for defining, selecting, creating, converting and tagging Lindab walls. It also contains tools for work sharing and wall section schedules.

The Professional Edition is optimized for engineers, estimators, contractors and builders. It contains tools for framing, material lists and wall sheets. The tools available in the Standard Edition are also available in the Professional Edition.

The extension is designed in two editions for ease of use purposes. The toolbar and some of the dialogs will look different dependent on the edition used.

Licensing

The following license options are applicable:

Single-User license, Internet based

This license type is given to members of Lindab’s Information Gateway. If you are not a member, apply for membership at http://profilesolutions.lindab.com

Company license, Internet based

This license type is created upon request for large scale user scenarios. Contact Lindab on lindabrevittools@lindab.com for more information.

Both license options are free of charge but the usage of the extension should comply with the extension EULA (End-User License Agreement) given during the installation.

Display language

The extension is available in two display languages; Swedish and English. The display language is chosen according to the settings made in the Regional and Language Options in the Windows Control Panel.

2. Features

Work sharing

The extension is designed to support sharing of families, wall definitions and wall layer definitions. The location of these folders is given to a set of pre-defined project parameters. If a server or another shared location is used, multiple users can work with the same content in the same project.

users can work with the same content in the same project. Clearance for walls This feature

Clearance for walls

This feature makes it possible to design walls in its full sizes which speeds up the design process considerably. The clearance values are first considered when the framing or specification tools are used. The clearance values can be assigned in general for different wall types (exterior, interior, bearing, non- bearing) or wall for wall using an override option. The clearance feature is mostly used for infill wall projects.

Clearance for windows, doors and gates

The clearance values for windows, doors and gates are handled using family type parameters. The most time saving solution is to use clearance values for walls and openings simultaneously.

Definitions for walls and wall layers

Wall and wall layer definitions are managed using graphical interfaces which are easy and clear to work with. Each definition can be stored in different libraries to increase control and reusability. Definitions can be created as user specific or company/project specific depending on working method and project type. The extension comes with a predefined library but new libraries/definitions can be added when needed.

Wall types

The extension offers three alternatives for creating wall types in projects. The first alternative is to create a wall type from a selected wall definition. This option is suitable when starting from scratch. The second alternative is appropriate when the project is designed with generic wall types, which are to be changed into Lindab wall types. There is a special converter tool available for this alternative which simplifies the work. The terms of contract for each project are usually the governing factor here. The third alternative is to create the wall types manually but it is a much more time consuming operation. The third alternative is the only option for exterior walls.

Light gauge steel framing has never been easier. The customized framing tools for exterior and interior walls are interactive and show the framing in detail. The framing tools analyze the wall geometry together with the matching wall definition resulting in a default wall design. Lintels, strip steel reinforcements etc. can be added in the tool if needed before finalizing the wall design. The finalized wall design tool data is stored if changes need to be done later on.

Wall joints

Both the framing and the specification tools analyze the wall joints and the appropriate solution is given in the output results. Outer joints, inner joints and T-joints are handled automatically no matter if the joining walls are perpendicular or non-perpendicular to each other. The only exception to this automatic handling is exterior walls with cross laid layers; they must be perpendicular to each other.

Wall section schedule

The wall section schedule for Lindab interior wall types are generated automatically when needed. Both the predefined and user defined wall types are included in the print-out. Exterior wall type sections must be created manually.

Material list

The material lists for light gauge steel profiles and wall layer materials are created easily with the specification tools available. Steel profiles are shown with their exact length, amount, weight etc. Wall layer materials are shown with their gross and net area. The material list is shown in a grid where it can be filtered and grouped according to user requirements. The filtering and grouping possibilities are dependent on the identification parameters given for each wall in the project. If the walls are well specified, the filtering and grouping options increase and vice versa. The material list can be exported to excel when customized and ready.
