Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Modeling duct fittings, part of Revit: MEP Families.
- So, suppose we need to splitl one big…duct into two.…So, we'll model a big duct, it'll go into a duct fitting,…and then our duct fitting will split it into two different…smaller ducts.…Let's do that.…So under Families, let's go New.…I'm going to scroll down to my favorite, generic model.…Now, I'm going to create some parameters.…I'm going to right click here.…And Create Similar.…On my Pick Lines, my offset will be one foot.…A little to the left, to the right, up and then down.…
I'm going to hit Escape.…Now, I'm going to click a line, dimension.…EQ.…Overall, my label will be Length.…Nothing shocking there.…I want this to be Instance.…Click OK.…Want to click on Align Dimension again.…Want to equally constrain this one.…Just like this.…This one's going to be Duct Width.…
Instance parameter for sure.…Look okay.…Now let's go to a front elevation.…Hit z + a to zoom all.…I'm going to right click on this reference plane, and…Create Similar.…On my Draw panel, I use my Pick Lines button.…And I'm going to offset two inches.…Up and and then down.…
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.
