Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a transformer switchboard, part of MEP Families in Revit.
- Let's move on to bigger and better things…such as a switchboard transformer.…Okay. Let's get started.…Let's go Families, New.…Let's scroll down until we find Electrical Equipment,…and let's click Open.…On the Create tab, let's go to…Family Category and Parameters.…I would like to keep our part type as a Panelboard,…but I want to scroll down until we find OmniClass Number.…I'm going to click into here,…and I'm going to click on the builder button right here.…
I'm going to go to Generation and Transformation Equipment.…I'm going to go to Transformers.…I'm going to go to Power Transformers,…and I'm going to click OK.…I'm going to click OK again.…Let's make our reference plans.…I'm going to right-click here.…Create Similar.…I'm going to offset two feet.…Left and right.…And I'll offset two feet, up and down,…and I'll hit Escape a few times.…Now I'm going to click on my Aligned Dimension.…
I'm going to equally dimension these.…I'll equally dimension these.…Now I'll put my overall dimensions in.…Select my top one.…I'm going to add a parameter, call it Width.…
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.
