Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring systems, part of Revit: Sprinkler Design.
- [Instructor] It's time to talk about systems.…If we know the physical type of pipe,…and the specific fittings we're gonna use,…we can direct our attention to what is actually in the pipe,…what color and line type we want to see,…the rise and drop symbols,…and the abbreviation we want to tag the pipe with.…We can even specify the material of the pipe.…The focus of this video is to drill…into the families category in the project browser.…Now we're going to create a new system.…We'll configure the visibility graphics,…the rise/drop symbols, the materials, and the abbreviation.…
So, let's jump into Revit, like we always do.…Under projects, let's go open.…I'm gonna browse around, keep in my exercise files,…and I'm gonna grab my two two systems.…And click open.…To find where our systems are,…it's not something we can come up here and click on…and go with the systems.…They actually live in our project browser.…So in your project browser,…let's scroll down 'til we find families.…
Drill into families.…Scroll down 'til we find piping systems.…
