This class will illustrate how MEP electrical designers and engineers can utilize Revit to provide clients with more-accurate 3D representations of electrical elements without dramatically increasing design time. In an industry still heavily reliant on 2D deliverables for construction, it may be easy for electrical designers or engineers to produce traditional construction documents without exact 3D element placement. Revit electrical design is a drag-and-drop process in which exact 3D element placement may be missed (or ignored)—leading to coordination issues and client frustration, since some elements can’t be used for client elevations, sections, renderings, or virtual reality (VR) walk-throughs. This session will demonstrate content manipulation of Revit electrical fixtures and lighting families using parameters, filters, schedules, and tags for improved 3D representation.
- Discover an Elevation parameter for use in Schedules, Tags and Filters
- Learn how to use an Elevation parameter on Views for 2D visualization clarity via Tags, Filters, and Colors
- Learn how flexible lighting families are created
- Learn how to use a flexible lighting family efficiently
