Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding branch piping, part of Revit: Sprinkler Design.
- [Instructor] Now it's just connect the dots.…With the mains in place,…and the sprinklers in place…we can start routing our branches.…Revit does it make it really easy to do this…but there's some difficult spots.…The objective of this video of this video…is we're going to select a few sprinklers…and route some branch piping.…Then we'll add our branches…at different elevations…and different sizes to get a feel…for how Revit like's to route it.…To get started, let's jump in to Revit.…Under Projects, let's go Open.…Browse to where you're keeping…your exercise files…and open up your Branches model…or, of course, any model…you prefer to open.…
Let's make sure we're in…Mechanical>Sprinkler>Floorplans>Level 1.…Let's zoom in over here.…I'd like to turn off…that annoying hatch pattern…on the floor.…To do that, let's type…V G for Visibility Graphics.…Under Model Categories, we'll scroll down…until we find Floors…but we're not gonna turn it off,…we're just gonna select Floors.…Come over to Patterns, and let's click…the Override button right here.…
