Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Looking at mechanical settings, part of Revit 2017: Essential Training for MEP (Metric).
- [Voiceover] Let's take a look at some…of our mechanical settings, shall we?…What I'd like to do is go to the Systems tab,…now notice we have HVAC, Mechanical,…Plumbing and Piping, Electrical,…we can set our settings up completely…in our templates with just these little buttons.…So I'm going to click on the HVAC one first…and all this does is opens the same dialogue.…So, for example, if I want come in, I'm gonna…select hidden line, I'm gonna start here.…
Now whenever we have something in plan,…and it's obscured by another item,…this is what controls how the hidden lines work.…My line style, the MEP hidden, is actually a little bit…light, we can select hidden lines, which is a little bit…heavier, and it's that green line type.…0.5 mm is pretty small for our gaps,…but I like it, it seems to work.…Draw MEP hidden lines, we could actually even turn that…off if you don't want to see them, I don't like doing that.…
I'm going to go down to duct settings.…Now, this is how we control the view of our ducts.…Use annotation scale for single line fittings, yeah,…
