Learning Revit MEP 2014

Video Description

In this Revit MEP 2014 training course, Simon Whitbread teaches you the basics of using Revit to design mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. Using BIM (Building Information Modeling) helps you create accurate building systems from concept to construction, and Simon will show you how to take full advantage of the features Revit has to offer you.

This video tutorial is designed for beginners, and no previous experience is necessary to learn how to use Revit MEP. You start by touring the interface and understanding file concepts in Revit, and how they apply to this training. You will then learn to use the basic creation and editing tools such as copy and paste, rotate, mirror, align, offset and others. Throughout the course, you will cover important topics like; using views, spaces and zones, running an energy analysis, HVAC, hydronic piping systems, fire protection and creating electrical systems. This video training course also covers detailing and documentation, the basics of worksharing, and how to present your completed projects.

Once you have finished this computer based training course for Revit MEP 2014, you will have a strong understanding of the fundamental tools and concepts available to you in Revit for MEP application. You will be fully capable of applying this knowledge to your own mechanical, electrical and plumbing building projects. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
