Back and updated for the 2013 release, we are going to help you take your AutoCAD Revit MEP software to the next level. In this intermediate class you will learn how to get piping accessories (such as valves) to look the way you want for single-line and double-line piping. We will also look at how to define electrical panel schedules to match what the code reviewers want. For HVAC designers, we will explain how to create some nifty custom fittings. Finally, there are the fast tips for all users—everyday tasks made easy for your Revit MEP projects. If you've ever been to one of these classes, be prepared! This one's going to be as informative as it is fun!

Key Learnings

  • Customize duct fittings for unusual parts and connections
  • List productivity tips for day-to-day use
  • Edit piping accessory view behavior for schematic/single/double line graphics
