  • Describe tips for creating plumbing models accurately and efficiently

Description

Description

This class will provide an in-depth discussion of best practices for building a design model for use in both 2D construction documentation and 3D trade coordination. We will look at the out-of-the-box tools in Autodesk Revit MEP software and provide ingenious tips for making the most accurate plumbing models quickly. We will also cover the basics of how the models can be built so that they are easy to manipulate for use in coordination. We will give you a step-by-step process for making models that serve for both documentation creation and coordination.
