The AutoCAD MEP Fundamentals course is designed for HVAC, electrical, plumbing, piping and fire protection engineers and designers who want to take advantage of AutoCAD MEP`s interactive, dynamic design functionality. AutoCAD MEP, which is built on the long-running AutoCAD Architecture platform, adds the MEP engineering tools to help design a comprehensive AutoCAD-based Building Information Model. In this initial training class, the user will learn the foundations of MEP-object based design. Fundamentals of creating 3D parts are reviewed, along with a review of how AutoCAD MEP fits into a three-step design process that is repeatable and predictable. An overview of the Project Navigator tool from the engineer`s perspective is also covered in this class. Finally, the user will learn how to leverage the space and zone tools to help perform energy analysis and develop LEED/sustainable design projects. This course is a pre-requisite to the AutoCAD MEP HVAC/Electrical/Piping courses offered by Advanced Solutions.
