Chapter 25. Direct to Fabrication

The use of BIM in the industry has exploded over the past decade to include a variety of uses both before documentation commences and after construction begins. So far, we have covered many of the ways you can use Revit to augment this design through the construction process. With the "direct to fabrication" process, you are taking that entire cycle of concept to realization and compacting it into a single, fluid process.

In this chapter, you'll learn to:

  • Understand the concepts of digital fabrication

  • Use digital fabrication on a project

  • Model cleanly and accurately
