Description

Key Features

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

In Detail

This book has been designed to teach you the concepts and principles of creating 3D parametric models of MEP system from engineering design through construction documentation. Throughout this book you will learn how to take full advantage of Building Information Modeling.

Revit MEP 2012 Fundamentals is intended to introduce you to the software’s user interface and the basic HVAC, electrical, and piping/plumbing components that make Revit MEP a powerful and flexible engineering modeling tool.

The objective is to familiarize you with the tools necessary to create, document, and print your parametric model. The examples and practices are designed to take you through the basics of a full MEP project from linking in an architectural model to construction documents.

Topics include:

  • Introduction to Revit MEP, its interface, including viewing, drawing, and editing commands
  • Working with linked architectural files
  • Creating and modifying views
  • Understanding Revit MEP Systems in general
  • Creating spaces and zones
  • Analyzing heating and cooling loads
  • Working with HVAC module to add air terminals, mechanical equipment, and create HVAC systems
  • Working with the Piping module to add mechanical equipment as well as creating hydronic piping systems
  • Working with fire protection systems
  • Working with fixtures and piping systems in the Plumbing module
  • Working with components, circuits, cable tray, and conduits in the Electrical module
  • Creating and annotating construction documents
  • Adding tags and creating schedules
  • Detailing in Revit MEP

Who this book is for:

This book introduces the fundamental skills in learning Revit MEP. It is highly recommended that you have experience and knowledge in MEP engineering and its terminology.
