The Revit MEP 2016: Electrical Essentials course is designed for electrical 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 electrical design 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 circuits and distribution systems, create connecting wiring, conduit and cable tray, and then annotate the drawings. Learning how wire sizing tools work will also be reviewed, as well as developing panel schedules and working with electrical settings. Common to all disciplines, the user will also learn how to use tools that generate sections and schedules. Managing and comparing changes between documents will be reviewed, and performing interference detections is also covered Users taking this course must complete the Revit MEP Project Fundamentals course or demonstrate relevant experience prior to taking this course.
