Generating Fabrication Models from Revit Mechanical Systems

by Hendre Roesch

In this course, you will use the Fabrication Tools within Revit to produce manufacturing drawings and export the model to the sheetmetal workshop without needing to re-design a consultants model. Software required: Revit 2017, CAMDuct 2017.

What you'll learn

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.
