Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Generic tags, part of MEP Families in Revit.
- I want to make a type tag that pulls in the…abbreviation for the system it's on.…For Families, let's go New.…Let's go to Annotations.…Let's go generic tag this time, let's click Open.…Delete that note like we always do.…Now, we can't do anything until we specify…what this thing is going to be tagging.…So go to Family Category and Parameters.…What I want to do is I want to scroll down to Pipe Tags.…
I want to rotate it with the component, for sure.…Click Ok, and notice that it's clicked on here.…Now what I want to do is go to Create and let's go to Label.…I'm going to put that label right here…but it's not going to stay there for long.…Now I can scroll down and notice that we're getting…categories for piping.…So we're going to scroll down and we're going to…find System Abbreviation, we're going to click add…and my sample value will be GAS.…
We're going to click Apply and then we're going to click OK.…Select GAS, what I want to do is the vertical align,…I want it to be middle.…My horizontal align, I want it to be center.…
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.
