On your jobsite, at any given moment, there are about a hundred different demands on your time. Let’s face it, you’re a busy superintendent. Between the quality walks, document management, issue resolution, equipment tracking, and daily reports there’s no shortage of demands on your time.

In today’s Four Minute Friday Video @_TheDanWarren discuss how BIM 360 Glue and Revit can be used to coordinate openings in precast walls. Glue allows your project team to quickly clash test models to identify issues. Then use the clash pinpoint tool within Revit to quickly locate the correct wall and add your openings. Once the openings have been added the models update in Glue and you’ll be able to see the clash move to “resolved”. This will help you coordinate with your MEP designers faster.

In this week’s Four Minute Friday you will learn how to use Selection Cycling to filter multiple entities. Civil 3D .dwg files commonly have entities created on top of other entities and this can cause problems when trying to select a specific object. For instance, an alignment can be created from a polyline and a feature line can be created from an alignment. This results in three objects directly on top of each other. Selection Cycling helps you filter out the exact object you want to work with.
