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.
Here I am again. I’m posting some more information with regards to Revit and how to use it for Plumbing Design.
After a couple of months I finally had an opportunity to create a new video on Revit for plumbing design. I did a brief review of the previous 2 videos and showed how to get more comfortable with Revit specially for AutoCAD Users. One of the features that make it easier is short cuts. I will make the files available for you to dissect. Hope you enjoy it.
Vlog 03 – Revit Plumbing design.
Here is an other Video on Revit configuration before you start designing Plumbing systems in it. Enjoy.
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.
Sovent Fitting. Fitting ABCDG. I’ve been working on creating the Fitting for Autodesk Revit MEP with all its variations.
