Weekly Reflection:
This week I continued to work on the Elementary School Project. This is a school plan that is altered for many schools across the country. The firm has the school modeled in AutoCAD; however, with the changing times they wish to render aspects of the building for the school. Therefore, the project must be converted to Revit. I was tasked with creating the elevation views around the entire project. I was also tasked this week to design the various sunshade and canopy that appear around the exterior. During the days in the office I was numerous tips and tricks within Revit to improve my workflow and to prepare myself for the Autodesk Professional Certification I hope to achieve in the coming months. While I learned a lot of new tricks within Revit, it would be too much to record them all within this reflection. This week I also worked on renderings for upcoming project proposals that cannot be discussed in detail at this time; however, these are some exciting projects that are in the works. Towards the end of the week I jumped back into the elementary school and learned how to split a wall face into multiple materials in the same place. On Thursday, we also met with the website team and learned what goes into creating a professional portfolio website.
