How to perform MEP modeling in a jobsite with Revit
In this Revit video tutorial, you will learn how to use Revit for creating MEP modeling of a site office, canteen, outdoor switch room with distribution boards, transformers, diesel generator and fuel tank.
Given below, some useful features of Revit for MEP modeling :-
• Mechanical Systems: Create the design of various types of mechanical systems like duct system to fulfill the heating and cooling requirements of the building. With the use of various tools, form duct systems to arrange air terminals and mechanical equipment in a project. By applying automatic system creation tools, generate duct routing layouts to unite the supply and return system components.
• Electrical Systems: Develop electrical systems (circuits) to arrange devices, lighting fixtures, and electrical equipment in a project.
• Piping Systems: Develop piping systems with the arrangement of mechanical components in a model and attribute them to a supply or return system. Then, with the use of various layout tools, define the most recommended routing for the piping that relates the system components.
• MEP Fabrication Detailing: Arrange LOD 400 content from the Autodesk Fabrication products (CADmep, ESTmep, and CAMduct) inside Revit MEP to generate a more coordinated model. Produce a perfect model for detailers within construction firms that reflects the intended installation.
• Spaces: Arrange spaces in all the sections of the building model to preserve values applied for accomplishing heating and cooling load analysis on the building model.
• Zones: With the use of the zone tool, it is possible to identify spaces to be managed with environmental control systems like heating, cooling, and humidity control systems. It facilitates you to execute load balancing and analysis procedures on a building model.
• Use the System Inspector: System Inspector is applied to observe the properties for a selected duct or pipe system.
