Although it is hard to generate errors in a training video, rest assured that when you sit for the certification exam they will be giving you a model where you need to ferret out some disconnects. The purpose of this video is to to to the analyze tab, then go to the Check Systems tab, then to the Check Circuits button. Also you can type EC and it will bring you right there!

- [Instructor] It's a lot easier to check for disconnects…in duct work and piping than it is in electrical systems.…Which is a good thing.…Under Projects, let's go to Open.…I'm gonna go to my Checking model and I'm gonna click Open.…Now, if we go to Analyze, we have a lot of different items…that we can check on.…Let's go to Manage first, and under Manage,…we can come to Inquiry.…And if we had any warnings here,…we could click on Review Warnings,…and it would display lists of messages that…you can ignore or resolve.…
Now, we have such a clean model here…we don't have any warnings in it.…But that's fine.…If you did have warnings, you'd turn them on here.…Let's go back to the Analyze tab.…Now what I'd like to do is, I want to Check Systems.…Now, we can Duct, we can Pipe, and we can Circuit.…So go ahead and check the circuits.…We have some pretty close tight circuits here,…and generally I never find that there are errors…in circuits too often, because what happens…if you make an error, Revit will take that item…off of the circuit so it won't be on the circuit.…
