Description

Description

Using Revit software, plumbing engineers and designers are able to capitalize on Building Information Modeling (BIM) data and 3D views to more effectively communicate design intent, while at the same time reducing overall production hours on projects. This class will walk through methodologies and concepts, such as the tagging of BIM components, when it is viable to use an isometric versus an enlarged plan, filters to display specific piping systems, and visibility graphics related to plumbing families and links. These simple ideas can add up to tremendous savings in coordination issues and project hours spent trying to communicate the design. We will cover the concepts that can make that possible for you.
