    Concrete formwork shutters

    Guys,

    Does anyone know if there are any Revit plugins that assist with formwork shutters?

    For insitu walls and columns we produce both a 'formwork components' drawing (a legend of all the different size formwork shutters we have) plus a layout drawing for each level showing site how to position each formwork shutter to create the desired wall/column. I have attached a couple of screenshots.

    Is there anything that can do this within Revit? My thinking was we could create new families of each shutter (size, ID etc) then if Revit (or a plugin) can automatically calculate the best way to position the shutters based on the wall/walls selected and then place them we could develop layout drawings and a materials takeoff schedule.

    Does anyone know of anything that will do this?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I do things like that in Revit all day long. I have families for my formworks (metal panels), and use both groups and assemblies.

    Schedules and work breakdown is also done in Revit, with a large use of filters and shared parameters.

    For automation, you will need to put some money on the table for API. But can be done for sure.

    Excellent Julien, would you mind sharing some of your processes with me please? Who do I give money to for API, I am very good at spending money to increase productivity.
