Description:  
David Baldacchino of Philo Wilke Partnership will be presenting Advanced Stairs & Railings. 
There is no argument that the stair and railing tools in Revit leave a lot to be desired.  Despite being very design-unfriendly, they can still be used successfully to model various project conditions and properly document 2D views for construction document purposes.  In this month’s user group meeting we will:  

   – See some real-world examples of completed stairs and railings  
   – Discuss the strategies employed in assembling the bits and pieces. 
   – Look at various examples such as a typical fire staircase, grand stairs and also some out-of-the-box applications. 
   – Examining case studies to see how the tools where applied, which functionalities were ignored and what other techniques were employed to get the job done.

Q&A session will follow to round up the meeting.

Please RSVP by replying to rsvp@harug.org, no later than 5:00 pm on Tuesday, June 7th so that we may get an accurate count for pizza and refreshments provided by Total CAD Systems, Inc.
