Course Description

If you've ever had to create and cross-check a door schedule manually, you know first hand how awesome Revit schedules really are. They can save you tons of time and are hands-down, one of the most powerful features in Revit. Schedules can do a lot more than just door schedules, however.

In this mini-course, we'll cover the various types of schedules available in Revit and when you should use each type. We'll also look at how to super-charge your schedules using calculated values and formulas. We'll discuss best practices for using formulas and review a cheat sheet I developed to help you utilize this powerful feature. Lastly, we'll look at how to create matrix schedules, which use symbols rather than text to represent schedule values.

Course Objectives

  • Understand the different types of schedules available in Revit and when to use each.
  • Learn how to use calculated values and formulas to super-charge your schedules
  • Understand how to apply conditional logic to make your schedules react to your BIM data.
  • Learn how to create matrix schedules as well as other schedule presentation tips and tricks.
