Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Loading, part of Revit 2018: Essential Training for MEP (Metric).
- [Instructor] These new fabrication parts are pretty cool. Revit is definitely headed in the right direction when it comes to constructability. The problem is I think Autodesk still basically considers this to be somewhat third party. I say that because there are steps involved in getting this stuff to work. Hopefully you don't need this video, but some of you may. Let's look and see where we can go get this stuff. Before we even do that though, I'd like to just show you the fabrication parts. I've already got them loaded in here. As you can see we have a new panel over here. We can select our service with Ductwork with all the items that kind of come with it.
If I hit the drop down I can go to like electrical, piping, a bunch of stuff. Now under groups we can go fittings, valves, joints and even hangers which is really cool. See we have clevis hangers, trapeze hangers, I like it but the problem is you have to have this stuff loaded in order for it to work. So, let's take a look on where we can go get it. If you have an Autodesk subscription, obviously you can just log into your site, and find it. If not, like me, I've actually loaded it here, so if you want to go to Windows Explorer, and browse to where you're keeping your exercise files, I've made a Fabrication folder for you.
So, if we go to the Fabrication folder, I've put in the four different components that you need to run. Just run them in order. So, I'm going to run my Imperial_Revit_MEP. It's going to compute the space. Always accept and click Next, Next. You need to be an admin to install it, so you might have to get IT to do this. Yes. Now wait a couple seconds. It's going to copy all your files over, and voila, you're done.
I'm going to click Finish here. Now if you want to jump into a Revit file, I can close out of this, and I'm just going to hop into my Mechanical Template. If we go to the Systems tab, if you click on the little down arrow next to Fabrication Settings, we have Configurations, if you click the drop down, they should all be in here. If you want to turn on the Fabrication Parts, it's over here.
So, that's how you get the stuff into your Revit.
You can dive into a specific trade, or take the entire course to learn about all aspects of the vast Revit MEP ecosystem. Upon completion, you'll know how to create basic floor plans, design electric circuits and lighting systems, model air intake and exhaust systems, create plumbing plans, and design fire alarm and sprinkler systems, and document your designs for construction and fabrication.
