Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Discover that conceptual massing can be fast, accurate, and fun!
  • Identify the problem areas in a conceptual linked Revit file and explain how to resolve them
  • Construct a conceptual mass in Revit MEP 2013
  • Override the different options for building materials in the analytical model

Description

Description

You want MEP building analysis, but there is no architectural model. Are you kidding? Should you continue with 2D or maintain your skills and create your own building model using the conceptual massing tools? MEP building analysis is easy when you use the massing tools in Autodesk Revit MEP 2013 software—a largely underused tool for the MEP designer. In this class, you will discover how to build an analysis model using linked 2D data as a wireframe model. From this wireframe, we will construct a mass model, add external walls and windows, and populate the interior with walls rooms and spaces. We will continue the process, creating a space schedule for checking and naming purposes and exporting to gbXML. Additionally, we will take a look at some of the new features in Revit MEP 2013 that enable you to make best use of a linked architectural file—whether you use the data attached to the architect's model or override it in the design analysis model.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Project Manager/Engineer, End User, Building services engineers who want to use the power of Revit MEP, AEC professionals who are involved with conceptual design and analysis, and Revit users who want to take full advantage of the data from the analysis process

Originally from London, Simon relocated to New Zealand in 2002. He has over 30 years’ experience in Building Services and Architectural industries. Since the early 1990's he has been involved in developing and managing CAD and IT Systems for a variety of companies, and now spends most of his time, teaching Revit to a wide range of students at all levels of age and experience. After a five year term with Jasmax, one of New Zealand's leading architectural practices, where he led the implementation of Revit Architecture, he spent 3 years with Beca, training and supporting Revit Architecture and Revit MEP. Using Revit since r5.1, and Revit MEP since its inception. Now a Revit Specialist for KarelCAD, he provides implementation, training and support services, and in his spare time has now co-authored three Revit MEP books, and is also working on a series of video tutorials for Revit MEP. You can also sometimes find him on twitter, or reluctantly blogging at www.BIM-BS.blogspot.com
