Lighting Analysts was pleased to host noted Revit author and blogger, Mr. Dan Stine for two great sessions recently: Basic ElumTools for Interiors and Basic ElumTools for Exteriors. If you are new to ElumTools these are the sessions for you. You will learn basic use of ElumTools as well as Revit best practices for an ElumTools workflow. See the outlines as linked below. Recordings of these sessions are available for purchase in our E-Store.
Additionally, Dan hosted previous sessions targeted to those new to Revit that are more Revit-centric than the ElumTools courses above. These sessions are also available as recordings in our store: Basic Revit for Lighting Professionals and Intermediate Revit for Lighting Professionals. Outlines also below.
Dan also co-presented with ElumTools developer Matt Kincaid for an EXTREMELY relevant session on lighting fixture (luminaire) families: Revit Luminaire Families – Best Practices for Lighting Calculations. This is an evolution of Matt’s course given at Lightfair 2016, which was again updated and presented at Lightfair 2018.
