Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding plumbing fixtures, part of Revit 2017 Essential Training: MEP (Metric).
- [Voiceover] Let's talk about plumbing piping,…but most of all, let's talk about plumbing fixtures.…This is probably the most convoluted part…of all of plumbing, because of the fact that…the architect always puts their own fixtures in.…We can't hook to their fixtures, so what do we do?…I have four different methods that I employ.…Let's go through them.…Under Plumbing, I'm gonna go to Enlarged Men's Room.…The first method, and least popular,…is to draw a pipe and just trick it,…so it's actually going into their fixture.…
