Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Revit: MEP Families.
- [Voiceover] If you're a premium member of luna.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. All of the videos have a Revit family that has been completed for you to look at if you get lost, but you're not going to need these files to complete the videos. Also, there's an architectural test model you'll be given if you do not have a model of your own to test out these families. If you're a monthly member or annual member of luna.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, however, you can download the complementary architectural test file for your use or if you want you can follow along from scratch with your own assets or even live projects you might be in the middle of.
Either way you like to learn, let's get started.
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.
