    Siteworks for Revit

    Interesting....

    https://forums.augi.com/showthread.p...vit-Site-Tools

    And the page is gone.

    Could there be new site tools coming to Revit? I don't see them being sued as Eagle Point is an Autodesk Partner.

    If thats what Autodesk gives us for new Site Tools, youre going to be tremendously disappointed if you try to make a Parking Lot, lol. It was great for really complex land terracing. But its was horrifying for basic Architectural Site Plans.

    Uh oh... Well I've never used it. I checked them out at AU years ago and didn't look into more.

    Hi Aaron.

    Let's say that I'd be interested in hearing where those tools came up short.

    Best,
    Anthony

    Anytime, Anthony. I actually gave the EP folks some great feedback that i think could have knocked it out of the park, but it was deemed unimportant. Wanna catch up this week?

    Interesting indeed.

    I'm not holding my breath, but even a basic site tools package would come in handy on nearly every single project we work on, me being in a city and all with things like streets and sidewalks that we have to show in our model.

    They ( EP) came into my old office, gave us a demo, with our landscape architect looking on curiously. Great dog and pony show--did some grading, curb/gutter profiles/roads, ( using Masses, which works, but seems like a last ditch attempt.... ) Then I asked them to place parking stalls along a sloped parking lot.

    Ultimate fail. They still "cantilevered" from their origin and either bury into the slope, or protrude above casting shadows--i.e. parking spaces need to conform to the topography. Yes, there are a bunch of hacks for that ( individually sketched sub-regions, etc.) But we need more robust tools for doing large/complex site plans and master plans with hundreds and sometimes thousands of parking spaces on sloped sites.

    Our landscape architects had mixed reviews on Siteworks. They do all the hardscape design.

    Maybe because the tools aren't really for landscape architects? Curbs, sidewalks, drives, parking lots, topo and grading....
