Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a round to rectangle duct tap, part of Revit: MEP Families.
- Okay, let's talk about duct fittings,…the harder part of the duct work.…But what I'd like to do here is,…I always say I like to start with a template.…However, a part like this,…why not start with a part that already exists?…So what I'm saying is, we have hundreds of templates,…actually, that Autodesk has already made for us,…that we can use, that are a lot further along…than just a blank template.…So what we're going to do is…we're going to grab an actual fitting that exists,…and we're going to build from it.…
It seems like cheating, but it's really not.…So what I'd like to do is let's jump into Revit,…and under Families, this time let's go Open.…Now, I want to go down to Ducts,…I want to go to Fittings, Round, let's go to Taps.…Let's grab Round Takeoff.…Now I'm just going to go File, Save As, Family,…I'm going to go to where I'm keeping my exercise files,…and let's call it "Booty".…
Go to Options, let's make sure we only have one backup,…click OK, let's click Save.…Now what I want to do is I want to go to Views,…
Author Eric Wing shows how to model MEP families on a topic-by-topic basic, so you can learn the ins and outs of family creation while modeling exactly what you need for your drawings today. The course starts with a review of the basics: parameters, connectors, dimensions, and various family modeling techniques. Then Eric investigates specific parts and systems that can be created with Revit families: electrical panels and junction boxes, recessed and track lighting, HVAC systems with ducting and air terminals, and pipe systems. Along the way, he introduces the reference planes, parameters, shapes, and hosting options necessary to build families on your own.
