Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating space tags, part of MEP Families in Revit.
- I'd like to show you how to make a space tag.…The reason I'm including this,…it seems awfully remedial, but,…too many times I see people using room tags…when they should be using spaces and MEP.…So what I want to do is I want to start a new project.…I want to use our mechanical template,…and I want to hit OK.…I want to go to inserts and I want to link revit.…Now I want to browse to where we're keeping…our exercise files.…Now I want to grab our arch-test,…and I'm going to click okay.…
Now I need to pin this down, what I really need to do…is click on edit type and click on room bounding,…that way we can put a space in here.…I'm going to click apply, I'm going to click OK,…and hit escape a couple times.…Now what I want to do is go to the analyze tab…and we're going to click on space.…I'm going to go here, here, and here,…and I'm going to hit escape.…
Now the thing is, if I hover over…one of these spaces and select it,…and I scroll down, this says number two, name space,…but it knows the room name and number,…that's coming in from the architectural model.…
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.
