SAuBIM - Code Calcs v2.0 Add-in for Revit Released

New In Version 2.0:

From the developer of SAuBIM Jeff Pinheiro, he of the excellent The Revit Kid blog, and co-developer Fredy Teyssedou...

"We teamed up with Harry [Mattison] from Boost Your BIM to create an integrated Add-In for Revit 2013 and 2014.  No more closing and opening Revit.  Simply click and go!"

SAuBIM – Code Calcs v2.0 for Autodesk® Revit® Architecture is a compact, easy to use, and time saving program.  Autodesk® Revit® Architecture is a BIM (Building Information Modeling) program and can be very powerful when pulling the right information in and out.  SAuBIM – Code Calcs v2.0 takes advantage of the information in your BIM model and saves you hours of time.

What does it do?

SAuBIM – Code Calcs v2.0 streamlines two very tedious processes when completing a building model: building code calculations and floor plans.

Code Compliance Floor Plan Tags

There is a major link that has not existed, and still does not exist, in Autodesk® Revit® Architecture.  This link is the ability to display calculated data from a schedule into a Tag or Symbol on your floor plans.  Well, SAuBIM takes care of this for you when it comes to Occupancy Tags on Code Compliance floor plans.

SAuBIM will create the required schedules to automatically calculate the following items:

  • Occupancy Loads (Per Room)
  • Required Male Water Closets
  • Required Female Water Closets
  • Required Lavatories
  • Required Drinking Fountains

Once the schedules are loaded into your Revit® template or model all the work is done for you.  Simply build your model, make sure your rooms are set to the correct Use Groups (Use Groups and integers are editable), create your Code Compliance plans with the proper room tags, and SAuBIM will take care of the rest.

What is included?

Once you purchase and install SAuBIM – Code Calcs v2.0 follow the Using SAuBIM video and you will have:

  • Occupancy Schedule that Calculates:
    • Occupancy Loads (Per Room)
    • Required Male Water Closets
    • Required Female Water Closets
    • Required Lavatories
    • Required Drinking Fountains
  • Occupancy Load Tag – Will be automatically filled in on floor plans
  • Plumbing Fixture Schedule
  • Editable Use Group Key Schedule

Note:

The SAuBIM Use Group schedule is loosely based off of the International Building Code.  Verify and update the numbers within the schedule for your use and more accuracy.

There's more information available on the SAuBIM website.
