Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding mechanical equipment, part of Revit 2017: Essential Training for MEP (Metric).
- [Voiceover] What I'd like to do now…is start to add some equipment.…Pretty much the equipment dictates…the main part of our layout.…I like to go big, to small, to smallest.…So I like to go to my roof-top units, or my AHUs,…down to my VAVs, then down to my diffusers.…So, what I want to do first, is…I want to throw a roof-top unit up…on the top of my building.…In my Project browser, I'm going to go to my Roof level.…
Now what I want to do is I'm going to zoom in over here.…I think I want it over in this neighborhood.…I'm going to go the Systems.…I'm going to go to Mechanical Equipment.…Now I know I don't have one of these big boys in here,…so I'm going to click on Load Family.…I'm going to scroll down to Mechanical.…MEP for sure.…I want to go to Air Side Components.…
I want to go to AHUs, Air Handling Units.…And I want to scroll down 'til we get to…M_Outdoor AHU - Horizontal.…That's my favorite.…I want to click on Open.…Now I'm going to put it right about here.…I'm going to hit Esp a few times.…Now I want to select this unit.…
