3 Utility Shed Design Guide (Revit 2011)


Introduction
Sketching ideas is an important skill to communicate design ideas, particularly when brainstorming. Todays final designs for buildings and structures are almost exclusively created and stored electronically. In this way designs can be shared, updated, and improved more quickly and efficiently. The first CAD (Computer Aided Design) program developed was Sketchpad. It was developed by a graduate student at MIT in the early 1960s. His software utilized a light pen to draw on the computer monitor.

Procedure
In this activity you will use Autodesk Revit to create a utility shed. You will utilize your knowledge of common wood frame components and learn to translate those into the software. You will then produce drawings to document your design.

Constraints
The utility shed must have the following attributes: 12 ft x 16 ft footprint 8 foot wall height Wood framed construction Exterior wall should include clapboard siding, wall sheathing, studs, and interior gypsum wall board Gable roof One exterior door Interior partition walls creating two separate rooms Interior door between rooms At least two windows (minimum one window in each room)

Deliverables
Construction drawings to include the following views Dimensioned Floor Plan Site Plan Renderings Elevation views Schedules with Area Plan Summary Sheet
