Description

As an engineer or designer you are responsible for designing systems that are the lifeblood of the buildings we occupy. Knowing the systems you design will function properly is critical to your success as an engineer. Revit MEP provides you with the tools necessary for checking and analyzing the systems you design. In this course, Testing, Analyzing, and Fabricating Building Systems in Revit MEP, you'll learn how to utilize the tools in Revit, including the fabrication tools which allow you to develop a fabrication model for the fabrication process. First, you'll dive into leveraging the linked architecture model in order to develop spaces. Next, you'll explore how to utilize spaces and zones, where you'll cover how to check your systems for problems and analyze them for efficiency. Finally, you'll learn how to use the fabrication tools in practice. By the end of this course, you'll have the necessary skills to set up a linked Revit model and use it to create MEP spaces and zones. Software required: Revit.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Troy Crandell, and welcome to my course Testing, Analyzing, and Fabricating Building Systems in Revit MEP. I'm a BIM technologist and have been working in the AEC industry for about 12 years. Revit MEP is the premiere BIM operating tool for designers and engineers in the AEC industry today. If you've ever used this application then you understand how powerful this tool can be in the hands of an experienced engineer. This course is designed to dig into the analytical tools Revit MEP has to offer. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include leveraging the linked architecture module to develop spaces which are critical for reporting systems data. Testing your design to ensure the systems you develop are connected properly and assigned to the correct systems. Analyzing your designs by generating reports for the systems you've developed. And developing a fabrication model based on the design utilizing the fabrication configurations that you'll load into your model. By the end of the course you will have the skills necessary to begin testing, analyzing, and fabricating systems you've developed in Revit MEP. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Revit MEP with the testing, analyzing, and fabricating building systems in Revit MEP course at Pluralsight.
