Revit 2017 Plumbing – 05

Standard

I finally was able to create Video 5 of my Series of Plumbing design with Revit. Since I had lost my previews tutorial drawings for Video 04. I improvised by using another set of floor plans to continue with the tutorial. Also, as part of the tutorial I’m showing how to create a basic Revit family to connect two different systems such as sanitary and venting.

I hope you find it beneficial.

First Video Blog – Vlog – Revit – Plumbing

Standard

With the increase in the AEC industry using of Autodesk Revit in the last few years, I have been learning it for Coordination design and in particularly for plumbing design. You might ask why an other video on Revit, aren’t there enough on YouTube? While that is true, most of the videos that I’ve come across are mostly targeted to the use of the software for architectural, structural, electrical and HVAC modeling. Very few are specific to my field, as the title of this post states “Plumbing”. There are some available but not to many go in to every aspect of using Revit for Plumbing Design specifically. Many of the well known training sites have very good Video tutorials for Revit. But, when it comes to Plumbing and Revit they usually have one or two out of a 40 to 60 video series on Revit. My intent is to created video tutorials specific to Plumbing. When I say plumbing I’m not only referring to just modeling a piece of pipe, anybody can do that, but trying to apply some of the engineering that it involves. Utilizing the most common Plumbing Codes like the IPC (International Plumbing Code) or the UPC (Unified Plumbing Code). I will get as detail as necessary on any giving subject but not so much that is boring. That is the one thing I hate (no disrespect to any Training Site) about most instructors. They start talking on something and they go on and on. I’ll try to make each video concise and direct. I won’t try to cover everything under the sun. My goal is to make 10 to 15 min. videos that show exactly how I come across doing something. If you like let me know. If there is something you’ll like me to show write tome and I’ll put together a video on the subject.

I hope all of you enjoy it and learn something new.

Below is my first video posted on YouTube.

 

 

Revit Sovet Fittings

Standard

Hello, I have not really posted much in a while. This is a quick upload on one Item I’ve been working on for a Client. With the AEC industry rapidly moving towards the use of Autodesk Revit (in all its flavors) I had model Sovent Fittings for Revit MEP in particular.

If interested here is a link to the files:

Finally – AutoCAD 2011 for the Mac

Standard

It is Official Autodesk has come out with a version of AutoCAD for the Mac. After so many years (since 1982 that they released a Mac Version of AutoCAD). I believe this has been one of the most requested applications in many industries to be ported to Mac’s. Now they would get a much greater response if they released a version for Linux (they had released a Unix Version many years ago, which was a very robust application considering that it ran at 64 Bit from what I’ve read.) All the Linux fanatics would go crazy over it (including my self).

Here is their Video Release.

Here is Autoesk’s Official Page for AutoCAD for the Mac.
