Revit MEP Base/Core Training
Recommended Course Length: 2 day*
Class Hours: 8:30 – 4:30
16 AIA Learning Units
This two day instructor-led course will teach students about the Autodesk Revit platform with an engineering twist specific to MEP systems for real world applications. The instructor will use lecture, discussions, and hands-on practices (based on real customer scenarios) to teach students techniques for initiating a Building Information Model (BIM) project, recommended workflows, and basic skills required to solve common issues. Students will use Revit MEP tools to prepare and create the foundation of a building information model. Given a complete architectural building model (as a reference), the student will be able to demonstrate how to begin and maintain a commercial BIM design. The student will then be able to extract 2D drawings for construction documents.
Who Should Attend
This course is intended for designers, drafters, modelers, and engineers new to Revit MEP.
Each Student Receives
- A student guide for use in the classroom*
- Telephone support on class topics for 30 days
- Certificate of completion
- AIA Learning Units for AIA members
* If desired, training materials may be purchased separately for use as a reference guide outside the classroom. Cost varies by title, please contact email@example.com for details.
There are no required prerequisites for this course. Nevertheless, students should come to this two day class with basic understanding of BIM and have a working knowledge of Microsoft Windows.
- Explain the following: What is BIM? What is Revit MEP?
- Describe how the Project Browser structure is organized and how to modify it to view the project orientation in other ways.
- Discuss families – describing their component parts, and interpreting how to best utilize a given family in a specific system.
- List the proper steps in creating a new project.
- Understand how to link Linking Models / Files, the best practices associated to this process, and how to manage the linked files.
- Formulate the reasoning behind the Copy / Monitor tool for interdisciplinary coordination.
- Define Space & Zone Energy Analysis data for load densities, service types, and conditions and constructions.
- Define the multiple different view types, their associated parameters, and graphics overrides that allow the view to be represented as standard in other CAD applications.
- Identify the most successful ways to create details, callouts, and section detail views for expressing the most complex designs.
- List the reasons why schedules are beneficial to the design of a BIM and how they can speed the design process.
- Describe the difference between Project Parameters, Shared Parameters, and Reporting Parameters. Define each parameter’s function in a Revit project setting.
- Create Sheets / Title Blocks and formulate how to represent the design that is being created in 2D dimensions.
Further, discuss finalizing the process by plotting the sheets while discussing best practices.
- Compare and contrast the difference and similarities between using Worksets and Worksharing as these concepts relate to best practices, based upon real world project experience and industry standards.
