With the Hurricane Sandy hitting the east coast this past year, we have a lot of customers doing more and more reconstruction.  If you have a model of your structure already, you can easily demolish walls or parts so you can redesign and reconstruct.  Here is a video to show the Revit Parts feature for disassembly.

I hope it is helpful.  Feel free to let me know what projects you are working on and how we can help you stay ahead.
Bill has a four-year Architectural Engineering degree from the University of Hartford. He has accumulated over seven years of industry experience in the field of Architecture. During that time he helped design, document, and in some cases, manage a variety of residential, commercial, municipal, and institutional projects. Most notably, he received recognition for the adaptive reuse of a vacant factory into leasable office condominiums and a conversion of a dilapidated 81-year-old silk mill into a local bank’s administration building using sustainable design techniques. For the past four years at Synergis, Bill has been training, supporting, and implementing the Building Solutions offered from Autodesk, which include AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture, and the Revit applications. Bill is a Revit Architecture 2008 Certified User and during this latest round of certification exams, he became an AutoCAD 2009, AutoCAD Architecture 2009, and Revit Architecture 2009 Certified Associate and Certified Professional. His interactions with customers have led him to author several technical articles for AEC Bytes and Cadalyst. Bill enjoys teaching and sharing his industry and technical knowledge.
