Description

By using the Fabrication Tools within Revit you can produce manufacturing/shop drawings without the need to re-design a consultants model. In such a competitive and seemingly inefficient industry, tools like this and the know-how required to master them can help you get more value out of time spent on projects. In this course, Generating Fabrication Models from Revit Mechanical Systems, you will learn how to take a design intent model and transform it into a Fabrication Model that can be exported to typical fabrication software like Fabrication CAMDuct used in sheetmetal workshops. You will also get a quick overview of the Fabrication Parts Database in CAMDuct. Finally, you'll learn even more about Fabrication Parts Database in CAMDuct - specifically relationship it has to Revit. Software required: Revit 2017, CAMDuct 2017.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Hendre Roesch, and welcome to my course, Generating Fabrication Models from Revit Mechanical Systems. I'm a design coordinator with Jordan Plumbing in Australia, but the majority of my career experience is in mechanical and HVAC services. This course will make you more efficient in the use of Revit 2017, and especially the Fabrication Parts components of the software. In this course, we're going to convert part of the consultant's design intent model in to a fabrication-ready file that can be used by a sheet metal workshop to produce our ductwork. Some of the major topics we will cover include, the connection between Revit and CAMduct, tagging fabrication parts, and sending in the model fabrication. By the end of this course, you'll be able to take a design model to fabrication without hours of rework. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Revit 2017. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Revit fabrication with the Generating Fabrication Models from Revit Mechanical Systems course, at Pluralsight.
