Site Lighting Revit mep

Although you cannot do lighting analysis on site lighting within Revit MEP, a site lighting design can be useful to coordinate loads within panels and create a realistic view of the model from the exterior. Locations of poles, bollards, and other site lighting fixtures can be coordinated with other utilities …

Light Fixtures in a Ceiling Revit mep

Face-hosted lighting fixture families are most commonly used because they can be attached to ceilings in your model or ceilings within a linked file in your model. You can use face-hosted fixtures to represent recessed, surface, and pendant-mounted lights. Cutting holes in the Ceiling Lighting fixture families can be made …

Efficient Lighting Design Revit mep

Let’s face it: Ceiling plans are one of the biggest coordination pain points for a design team. Nearly every MEP discipline has some type of element that resides in the ceiling. Using intelligent lighting families will help you, the electrical designer, stake your claim to that precious real estate. Using …

Pipe Routing Options Revit mep

The size of a mechanical piping model can grow quite large because of the amount of fluids constantly transferred, so it is very important that routing is closely coordinated. Using Revit MEP 2012, you can improve visual coordination with color-coded systems and use interference checking to monitor conflicts with cable …

Using Manual Duct Routing Revit mep

For the experienced design drafter, using the automatic tools may seem too limiting. However, wih experience and use, most users eventually settle for a variety, sometimes for no better reason than “a change is as good as a rest.” Sometimes, however, the manual tool is much more efficient, especially when …

Mechanical Systems and Ductwork Revit mep

Ductwork, like pipework, is a system family through which Revit MEP can calculate airflow rates and pressure drops on any correctly defined system. Ductwork also provides the graphics for the traditional “drawn” documentation and the variety of ways this can be represented on a drawing sheet at different stages of …

Understanding Parameters Revit mep

Parameters for piping are similar to the parameters for air systems such as Flow Factor, Calculated, Preset, Flow Direction, and so on. The available pipe system types are as follows: Hydronic Supply This pipe system can also be used for chilled water supply, cold water supply, steam, hot water supply, …

Why Are Systems Important

A new feature in Revit MEP 2012 is the ability to create duct runs in a supply/return or exhaust system without actually creating a system in the first place. The neat thing about this is that the system can be changed on the fly. Of course, if a duct system …

Outdoor Air Infiltration Revit mep

The Building Infiltration class needs to be set next. You are given four choices to model the rate of outdoor air that enters the building, typically through leaks in the building envelope created at openings such as windows, doors, and locations where perpendicular building surfaces join. In Revit, infiltration is …
