    When switching to Revit MEP Fabrication Parts, one of the first hurdles you need to cross is understanding how to get services and service templates configured in Fabrication software. Knowing how to navigate the services in Fabrication is key. You’ll be surprised by what little customization is required to get a basic service to function correctly in Revit software. Many of the settings that Fabrication CADmep software and Fabrication ESTmep software require are not necessarily required when using these services in Revit. We’ll cover how to deal with issues of connectivity and routing while in Revit and what changes to the database will improve routing and product selection. At the end of the class, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the design-to-fabrication feature in Revit to convert engineers’ design models and reduce coordination time needed to fabricate.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how different routing methods in Revit use the service differently
    • Learn how to quickly create a service from scratch and begin routing
    • Learn how customizing fabrication parts can speed product selection and routing
    • Learn simple button mapping to optimize design-to-fabrication conversions
