Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Dealing with fittings, part of Revit: MEP Families.
- Pipe fittings.…The hardest thing to do in all of Revit.…Alright, I'm going to go back to when I made that boot.…Essentially, I like to look at it like this.…Every fitting that Revit has for us is a potential template.…So, what I want to do is, we're going to start…a new project, we're going to draw some pipe.…We're going to grab the basic fitting,…and we're going to make it our own.…What I want to do is I want to go to Project, New,…I'm just going to grab the Mechanical Template,…I'm going to click OK.…On the Systems tab, I'm going to click on my Pipe button.…
Now I'm going to draw this pipe over here up like that.…I'm going to turn off my thin lines.…And this is the fitting than I want.…Basic, boring fitting.…I look at this as a fitting template.…I'm going to click on Edit Family.…I'm going to go to the purple R, Save As, Family.…Browse to where I'm keeping my exercise files.…I'm going to call it Lynda-Elbow.…
Go to my Options, maximum backups is one,…hit OK, hit Save.…But first I want to explain a few things…
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.
