As a subcontractor, it seems like from the minute we're awarded a job, we're behind. Typically, we only have a few days to get a model ready for coordination. When this is the case, being able to quickly and accurately model your mechanical rooms can be crucial to getting the space you need. Using Revit software, we will walk through how to pipe a typical mechanical room utilizing tips and tricks to quickly and efficiently prepare a fabrication-ready model. At the end of this class, you'll know what a fabrication-ready model contains, how to create a coordination-ready model that you can easily complete for fabrication, and how to work through typically difficult problems when piping a mechanical room. The tools and processes discussed in the class can be applied to any MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) discipline.
- Determine the difference between a coordination-ready and a fabrication-ready model
- Learn how to quickly get “pipe into the model”
- Learn how to adjust and refine the model to be fabrication and install ready
- Learn how to create a coordination-ready mechanical room model in a short amount of time
