Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Learn comprehensive steps for controlling project system settings, including mechanical and electrical system project settings
  • Learn how to capitalize on the system sizing and analysis tools, and learn how to maximize project performance when you don't need these features
  • Understand how to create the target and source relationship between equipment without routing a duct, pipe, or wire
  • Learn how to improve the quality of your construction documents by capitalizing on system-based features

Description

Description

Revit systems help us to define the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) design in several ways, but the main purpose is to understand the relationships between system equipment, such as air terminals to air handling units, or from light fixtures to panels. This lab (which has won multiple Autodesk University awards) will teach you the key steps needed to control project system settings, then demonstrate how to capitalize on (or disable) sizing and analysis tools related to the system. We'll cover creating the target-source relationship between parts, and then we'll review using the systems to improve the quality of your documentation. On top of this, you'll get a project template that already defines everything in the class, so you can take advantage of these topics immediately. The class will cover HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning), piping, and electrical items, so join us for this fast-paced, but thorough, lab-you'll be glad you did. This session will feature Revit MEP software and Revit software.
