Description

In this course we'll cover the basics in modeling electrical circuits in Revit MEP. We'll begin by exploring how to work with electrical settings like wiring types, voltage definitions, and even distribution systems. We'll also place fixtures, appliances, and receptacles throughout the floor plan. From there we'll establish circuits amongst the appliances, fixtures, and switches we just placed. We'll apply a few calculations and code concepts when designing the circuit layout. To finish up this training, we'll discover a quick and easy way to create a simple circuit breaker schedule that can be used to as a reference for installing your system or even for property management tasks. Software required: Revit 2014.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there, I'm Pierre with Digital-Tutors, an Autodesk authorized publisher, and in this course we'll cover the basics in modeling electrical circuits in Revit MEP. We'll begin by exploring how to work with electrical settings, like wire types, voltage definitions, and even distribution systems. We'll also place fixtures, appliances, and receptacles throughout our floor plan. From there, we'll establish circuits amongst our appliances and fixtures, and also switches that we just placed. We'll also apply a few calculations and code concepts when designing the circuit layout. Finally, I'll show you a quick and easy way to create a simple circuit breaker schedule that can be used as a reference for installing your system or even for daily property management tasks. So, with that, I'm ready to get started, and I'll see you in the next lesson.
