Appendix • The Bottom Line
The primary focus of this book is, of course, on the MEP disciplines, but there is plenty of information that applies to Revit in general. The idea behind the format is to take you through the major points of the design process and requirements for completing a building design and project submittal. This book focuses on building engineering, but it may also be helpful for other types of engineering projects such as process piping design or any others that require a combination of data and model components.
The book is written in five parts, the first of which covers general functionality that is useful for all disciplines. You will find suggestions throughout the book for including features and components in your project templates. The first part does not cover every pick and click available in the software; it approaches the use of Revit from a best-practices standpoint, which we hope will inspire you to think about ways to make Revit MEP 2012 work best for you. Any topics not covered were not omitted to imply that they are unimportant but simply because you can find information about these features in the documentation provided by Autodesk and in the Revit MEP 2012 Help menu.
The next three parts of the book are MEP-specific and have been written to cover the key design areas of each individual discipline. Again we focus on best practices by relating our professional experience with not only the software but also the design industry. In an effort to tie it all together, the fifth part of the book contains information on how to optimize your Revit experience by learning the tools and features available for creating the various components that make up an MEP model.
This book is intended for readers who are at least somewhat familiar with Revit MEP. It is not intended to be a “how-to” book by simply explaining picks and clicks; it is more for readers who are looking to find ideas on how to make the software work for them. Engineers, designers, and CAD technicians will all find useful information related to their workflows. If you are looking to move further with your Revit MEP implementation, you should find this book to be a useful resource. Even if you find that you know the topics discussed in this book.
