Dataset to accompany “Process to Automate the Creation of Building Information Models for Existing Buildings” by Brandon Bortoluzzi, Ivan Efremov, Clarice Medina, Daniel Sobieraj, and J.J. McArthur The enclosed files are provided to permit the creation of two sample buildings. These include the automated Revit model for each building as well as the finished version for the complex building (which has multiple wall and window types assigned), the input CAD files, custom families used in the final models, and the Dynamo scripts used in Automation. The following procedure, outlined in the article, is listed in a step-by-step format below. Some comments regarding potential modeling shortcuts based on our team experience have been noted in italics, which are consistent with the article process but provide further detail on modeling processes. An IFC file for each building has also been provided for visual reference, however these do not contain the custom parameters.
