The Revit MEP 2015: Mechanical Essentials course is designed for HVAC engineers and designers who want to take advantage of Revit MEP`s interactive, dynamic design functionality. Revit MEP, which is built on the Revit Architecture platform, adds the MEP engineering tools to help design a comprehensive Revit-based Building Information Model. Focusing on HVAC tools, this course begins by explaining the four step process, and then moving into key settings for options and preferences. Users will then learn how to place target and source equipment, define logical systems, create connecting ductwork and inline assets, and then annotate the drawings. Learning how duct sizing tools work will also be reviewed, as well as how to export to external duct sizing analysis applications. Common to all disciplines, the user will also learn how to use tools that generate sections and schedules. Adding other forms of annotation objects, including schedules will also be review. Managing and comparing changes between documents will be reviewed, and performing interference detections will be examined. Users taking this course must complete the Revit MEP Project Fundamentals course or demonstrate relevant experience prior to taking this course.
