Key Features

  • Learn to create 3D Parametric models of MEP systems using Autodesk Revit
  • Introduces you to the basics of HVAC, electrical, piping/plumbing and more
  • Learn to create construction documents, create schedules and add details with Autodesk Revit
  • Takes you through the basics of a complete MEP project

In Detail

To take full advantage of Building Information Modeling, the Autodesk Revit 2024 MEP Fundamentals has been designed to teach the concepts and principles of creating 3D parametric models of MEP systems from engineering design through construction documentation.

This guide is intended to introduce users to the user interface and the basic HVAC, electrical, and piping/plumbing components that make Autodesk Revit a powerful and flexible engineering modeling tool. The guide will also familiarize users with the tools required to create, document, and print the parametric model. The examples and practices are designed to take users through the basics of a full MEP project from linking in an architectural model to construction documents.
