Autodesk Revit MEP training course lays emphasis on the understanding of fundamental features of Revit MEP and move ahead with software’s user interface. Revit software is a widely accepted tool for creating architectural models covering the disciplines of plumbing, piping, HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning), and electrical designs.

Upon completion of this training you will be able to:

  • Understand Revit MEP key concepts and user interface
  • Use the Building Information Modeling (BIM) solution for creating 3D parametric models
  • Setting up project information and energy analysis
  • Work with mechanical and electrical systems
  • Execute plumbing and pipe settings with both manual and semi-automatic approach
  • Maintain construction documentation, align with schedules and tags, and handle printing and publishing
  • Create building layout to design the walls, doors and windows in 3D model
  • Work on different views such as elevation, schedule, sheet, and drafting
  • Working with column grids and structural layout covering floors, stairs, railings, ramps, elevators and shafts.
  • Edit, create, customize and build Families
  • Define ways to share work and enable worksharing
Target audience
  • Mechanical engineers
  • Drafters
  • Modelers
  • Civil engineers
