3 simple ways to create openings in Revit
Place an opening manually (face-based or non-hosted) at the desired position. Or generate the openings automatically (based on a selection or interference check file) at the places where MEP elements clash with structural elements. Information from the MEP model (such as dimensions, pipe type, insulation) is then directly transferred to the openings objects. No matter your choice, the openings are created with the correct dimensions and properties based on your input.
Always have a clear overview
Monitor and manage your openings in an efficient way using the openings monitor with all relevant information regarding the openings in your project such as status, dimensions, fire rating and many more. Apply filters and sort columns to see, for instance, which openings still need to be added to a request or for which ones you are expecting a response. You can also create schedules and extend them with your own data.
Combine and edit openings
Let the App automatically combine your openings when they are close to each other, or choose to do this manually. You can also quickly edit the characteristics of your openings like setting a different shape or adjusting the dimensions.
Define your preferences
Define settings like default margins for MEP elements, the minimum distance between openings on the same host, and even specify if you want to use linked models for generating the openings.
Place annotations with the height of the openings in your project. You can choose if the height must be measured up to the bottom, center, or top of the opening and even specify if the annotation must be based on your project elevation or on a specified level.
Take BIM collaboration to the next level
Let the structural engineer approve or decline your opening requests using the free Stabiplan Openings Manager for Structural Engineers App for Revit. Simply send an opening request to the structural engineer, get a response file back and load it directly into your model to have the most up-to-date status for each opening.
Predefined view templates
Import predefined view templates for a better control of the openings. Make use of the different filters to see, for instance, all the openings which are approved by the structural engineer in a particular view.
