Key Learning

  • Learn how to edit the profile for project requirements for use in Fabrication as well as Revit

Description

Description

Does your company have multiple locations, branches, or divisions? Does your Fabrication database have multiple “job specific” services? Does your Fabrication database have multiple “job specific” pressure classes, insulation specifications, or support specifications? If you answered “yes” to one of these questions, we have a solution for you. Using Fabrication Profiles for each project is a great way to maintain the Fabrication database without the need for project-specific groups within the database. Utilizing Profiles will help maintain a clean database to eliminate temporary database entries. If you plan to use Fabrication Parts in Revit software, this is a must-see. This session features Fabrication CADmep and Fabrication CAMduct.
