Integrated Specifications with Revit
e-SPECS for Revit extends
the Autodesk® Revit-based products document coordination and quality
solutions to the construction specifications. Integrate your design
firm preferences to automate the process of creating your construction
specs and access those specs directly within Revit based applications.
e-SPECS for Revit interfaces with
Revit's parametric database, instantly updating your project specifications
to the requirements of the building model. Insert a wall, door, window,
or any other building object into your Revit model and instantly update
your project manual with the appropriate specifications. Any changes
you make to the designs will automatically be incorporated into the
specification manual. And with the click of the mouse, you can access
all the other functionality that e-SPECS
provides to update your sections on-the-fly, post project notes, review
section markups and more. e-SPECS Validation
Reporting console ensures the correct parameters are used resulting
in an accurate coordinated spec manual.
for Revit eliminates the drudgery of specwriting, saving time and
money while keeping your specifications in sync with your Revit model.
e-SPECS for Revit ensures that your
drawings and specifications remain in sync. If you added a brick wall
to your project and later changed it to concrete, e-SPECS
for Revit would remove the unit masonry section and add a concrete
section to the project manual. At any time, you can review the "history"
of your specification sections to see why it was included in the project.
You can also review the Drawing Reconciliation reports to get a complete
overview of all the drawing elements that resulted in project specification
sections. Select a Revit family and view those specs linked to it
and even markup the specs collaborating with your specifier and other
e-SPECS for Revit generates project
specific keynotes coordinated with your specifications to ensure accuracy
in detailing. Rather than have your detailers select from hundreds
to thousands of master keynotes, e-SPECS
generates the list of only those used in your BIM project. In addition,
e-SPECS for Revit generates automatic
Outline Reports and a specification Table of Contents. These facilitate
a design process ensuring the highest quality product is produced
without the error prone and mundane manual efforts previously required
e-SPECS for Revit brings your entire
project team together, enabling collaboration on your specification
documents from any place in the world. Team members can access the
project directly in Revit based Applications, using the e-SPECS
Desktop markup tools, or through an Autodesk Buzzsaw® online account.
Inside Revit, simply select a family and view the specs linked to
that family and even markup and redline the specs collaborating with
your specifier. With e-SPECS for Revit,
you can publish you entire project to Buzzsaw with the click of a
mouse. e-SPECS version control keeps
track of all user edits and makes it simple to incorporate comments
and changes from multiple sources. You'll save time and money and
ensure that all team comments and considerations are included in the
for Revit enables direct access to the linked specs from within Revit
and makes it easy to incorporate team members' comments and redlines
into the project manual.
Developing the specifications for the products and materials that
are incorporated into your building designs is only part of the complete
specifications package. You also have to identify available products
that meet those specifications. With its built-in browser, e-SPECS
for Revit automates the selection of available products that meet
your specifications by linking to supplier information on the Internet
directly from your specification document. With the click of the mouse,
you go directly to a list of manufacturers supplying products applicable
to the section you are editing. You'll save hours researching products
to include in your specifications and when you find the appropriate
suppliers, information from their web sites can be cut and pasted
into your specifications with a few simple mouse clicks.
