    Revit MEP software is a powerful design tool in the Building Information Modeling (BIM) world. While we can’t automate the entire design of plumbing systems in Revit software, there are various workflows that we can automate for a quicker, more efficient way of design. Utilizing Revit software, this class will show how we can use Revit software’s piping systems, families with more useful information, and manipulation of some parameters to automate various workflows in our plumbing designs. These workflows include: automating the flow of roof areas in square footage or gallons per minute (GPM) in roof drainage piping, required cubic feet per hour (CFH) in gas piping, and GPM in hot-water return piping. The information in the families used will also enable us to create schedules for our drawings or calculation sheets. Attendees of this class should have a basic understanding of Revit software, but be looking to expand their knowledge of Revit software Piping Systems and BIM. This session features Revit MEP.
