Hello all,
My name is Darick Brokaw. I am a Structural Designer for an A&E firm in Orlando FL. I am looking forward to sharing some of what I know with you all. The session I will call “Watch Me Flex” is intended to share the methods & workflows of a single story retail structure and how to build it so it will flex with changes. It can be benifitcial to have a Revit model move & adjust in a predictable way when changes are made. I am looking for questions, ideas, & tips to cover in the class. I will review all relevant posts for their inclusion into this session prior to May 1st. Thank you for your support.

1. Location
........a. Positive coordinates (benift: structural analysis)
........b. Mirror Project (benift: prototype reuse)
................i. Project Basepoint
........c. Other disiplines existing model location?

2. Column Grid
........a. Constraints
................i. Dimension (lock)
........................1. Designate view where constraints are not Hidden in view,

................ii. Pin (eliminate unwanted movment)
........b. Host
................i. Use additional GridTypes soley for hosting elements (benift: visiblity control
...................thru V/G Filters & or Worksets)
........................1. Prefix non printable reference Grids (i.e. R1 = Refernece one)
........................2. Change color of reference Grids

You must be very excited about the AU 2010 class? Is it your first class?
