Revit MEP Systems - Here are the real benefits Jarrod Baumann BIM Manager – Tilden-Coil Constructors, Inc. Joel Londenberg BIM Manager – ACH Mechanical Contractors, Inc.
Class Summary In this class we will see some real world examples of when systems are useless and when they can genuinely help you with engineering, documentation, and construction. We will cover how to effectively define the logical systems, track flow in ducts and pipes for non-supported Revit system types, create custom tag families to use system flow, and use schedules to order supplies
Who we are: Joel Londenberg –BIM Manager –7 years AEC design and modeling experience –8 years manufactured equipment 3D design Jarrod Baumann –BIM Manager –15 years AEC design and modeling experience –Active user of Revit since 2006
Learning Objectives Choose a Revit MEP systems definition workflow depending on your desired goal Create systems to benefit your engineering / construction needs Edit Families and Schedules to parametrically drive your project
Tips… My sewer pipe is leaking - The tag says No Flow –“Exactly one possible path for flow” My vent pipe is plugged - The tag says No Flow –Not every system classification works the same. Test each early in your implementation and cheat work- around with others as needed My calc’s don’t work - The schedule says No Flow –Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler… Iterate your formula’s testing each step, add complexity only when needed, but don’t give up
