Description

Description

As engineers, we typically have certain ways we like things to be done. But Revit software has an exact way things must be done. Often, those 2 ways are not the same. While most people agree that using Revit as part of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process is the way to go, we still face challenges with some of these strict program workflows. For example, maybe you have trouble automating parameters and getting systems to calculate properly, or getting circuits to behave the way you want them to. The good news is that there have been several improvements to the MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) tools in Revit over the past few years. And with the development of Dynamo software, MEP design in Revit has made some major leaps forward. In this session, we'll discuss the current pitfalls and issues with MEP workflows inside Revit. Then we can focus on solutions or work-arounds that improve productivity. It's always great to be able to discuss your problems with other people who struggle with the same things. Let's talk about these ideas and share our solutions.
