Learning Autodesk Revit MEP 2012

Video Description

In this Autodesk Revit MEP 2012 Training Course, expert Simon Whitbread will teach you how to use this Building Information Modelling software from Autodesk. Starting at the beginning, this video based training course assumes no prior knowledge of this software. The training begins with a tour of the interface and various navigation components in Revit MEP. Quickly diving into the actual application of the Revit MEP tools, you will get hands on experience with functions such as copying and pasting, rotating, aligning, and more. You will continue with topics such as views, families, spaces and zones, and performance analysis. This video based tutorial also contains full chapters specifically focused on HVAC, piping and plumbing systems, and electrical systems. You will finish by exploring subjects such as work-sharing, documenting and sharing your designs. By the conclusion of this Revit MEP video training course, you will be fully capable of designing and adding mechanical, electric and plumbing systems to building designs. Included are extensive working files so that you can work alongside the author as he teaches you the ins and outs of Autodesk Revit MEP.
