Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Identify Revit MEP tools that help you understand your design better
  • Analyze the design of your systems and show the analysis data graphically
  • Explain how engineering calculations are incorporated into Revit MEP and how to use them to facilitate system design
  • Identify and avoid items that negatively affect your model performance

Description

Description

This class focuses on the mechanical aspects of the industry: ductwork and piping. We will review Autodesk® Revit® MEP ductwork and piping tools to help you better understand and facilitate your design by analyzing your ductwork and piping systems. We will explore Engineering 101 fundamentals for both ductwork and piping and learn how these concepts are incorporated into Revit MEP, as well as the impacts these fundamentals have on sizing your ductwork and piping systems. We will review tools for routing and sizing your ductwork and piping systems. We will also discuss the System Inspector and explain how it can supplement the information in the Duct and Pipe Pressure reports.
