Here is a glance at what’s in each chapter:
Part 1: General Project Setup
Chapter 1: Exploring the User Interface The ribbon interface is designed for optimal workfl ow. In this chapter, you will discover the features of the user interface that allow you to work effi ciently. Some new features in Revit MEP 2016 improve the user interface
Chapter 2: View Filters and View Templates This chapter takes you through the major areas for creating and applying view fi lters and view templates that help you deliver consistent-looking documentation for all your projects.
Chapter 3: Worksets and Worksharing This chapter guides you through the process of setting up a project file in a multiuser environment. The features of a worksharingenabled file are explained in a manner that promotes ideas for project workfl ow
Chapter 4: Project Collaboration Revit has many features that make project collaboration easy to manage. In this chapter, you will learn about ways to use the power of Revit MEP to coordinate your design and documents with other members of the project team.
Chapter 5: Multiplatform Interoperability: Working with 2D and 3D Data This chapter provides best-use techniques for importing non-Revit data into your projects. You will learn about the data types available and how to use them effectively in your Revit
Chapter 6: Parameters Parameters are the intelligence within a BIM project. This chapter explores how parameters can be used in both projects and families for applying computable data to your Revit models. The creation of shared parameters and their use is also covered.
Chapter 7: Schedules The best way to extract the data contained in your Revit project model is to use the power of schedules. In this chapter, you will learn about the tools available for scheduling model components and how to use schedules to manage data within your projects. The panel schedule template feature is also covered in this chapter.
Part 2: Mechanical Design
Chapter 8: HVAC Cooling and Heating Load Analysis Mechanical design must start with understanding how your building will perform in different weather conditions and climates.
In Chapter 8, you will learn that properly produced building loads can ensure that the mechanical design has been sized for maximum effi ciency, saving energy and money while reducing the impact on the environment.
Chapter 9: Creating Logical Systems In this chapter, you will learn how to set up logical systems and how each system is affected by the type you assign it. From mechanical systems to fi re-protection systems, all have a certain role to play in BIM
Chapter 10: Mechanical Systems and Ductwork Understanding how to route ductwork successfully can lead to error reduction and better coordination. In Chapter 10, you will learn how to locate mechanical equipment and how to use the proper routing methods for ductwork.
Chapter 11: Mechanical Piping Routing mechanical piping can be a daunting task. In this chapter, you will learn how to route and coordinate your piping and how, through these techniques, you can speed up production and take full advantage of what Revit MEP 2016 has to offer.
Part 3: Electrical Design
Chapter 12: Lighting In this chapter, you will learn how to place lighting fi xtures, including site lighting, into your projects. The use of lighting switches is also discussed, along with the relationship between lighting fi xtures and the spaces they occupy. This chapter also covers the basics for using Revit MEP for lighting analysis.
Chapter 13: Power and Communications In this chapter, the basics for placing power and communication devices into a model are covered. You will also learn how to place electrical equipment and connections for use in distribution systems. Conduit and cable tray modeling tools are also explored in this chapter.
Chapter 14: Circuiting and Panels Creating systems for your electrical components is just as important as it is for mechanical components. In this chapter, you will learn how to set up your projects to your standards for wiring, create circuits within your model, and create panel schedules to report the loads. The tools for load classifi cation and demand factors are also covered in this chapter.
Part 4: Plumbing
Chapter 15: Plumbing (Domestic, Sanitary, and Other) In this chapter, you will learn how to modify plumbing fi xture families and create custom systems to speed up plumbing design. You will also learn how to use the Copy/Monitor feature in ways never discussed before.
Chapter 16: Fire Protection Fire-protection systems protect buildings and lives. You will learn how to lay out a fi re pump system and assemble components to help in your design process. You will learn how to coordinate with other disciplines and how to enter into the BIM arena effectively through the use of Revit MEP.
Part 5: Managing Content
Chapter 17: Solid Modeling The foundation for custom content creation is having the ability to create the forms required to build component families. In this chapter, you will learn how to use the tools available in Revit MEP to create model geometry. You will also learn how to make geometry parametric, increasing its usability.
Chapter 18: Creating Symbols and Annotations Because so much of MEP design information is conveyed with schematic symbols, it is important to have the symbols and annotative objects commonly used for projects. Revit MEP has the tools needed to create schematic symbols for use in component families or directly in projects. In this chapter, you will learn how to use these tools and how to create constraints within families for display of the symbols in your projects.
Chapter 19: Creating Equipment Equipment families are an important component of a Revit model because of the space they occupy within a building. In this chapter, you will EBSCO Publishing : eBook Collection (EBSCOhost) – printed on 6/13/2017 3:39 PM via UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN learn how to use solid modeling tools to create equipment. You will also learn how to add
connectors for systems and how to create clearance spaces for coordination with other model elements.
Chapter 20: Creating Light Fixtures Lighting fi xture families are special because they can hold photometric data that allows for lighting analysis directly in your Revit model. This chapter covers how to create lighting fi xture families and add the data needed for
analysis. You will also learn how lighting fi xture families can be represented in project model views using detail components, linework, and annotation within the family file.
Chapter 21: Creating Devices This chapter examines the process for creating MEP system devices and how to use annotations to represent them on construction documents. In this chapter, you will also learn how parameters can be used to control and manage symbol visibility.
Chapter 22: Details Although creating a model with computable data is the primary reason for using Revit MEP, you do not want to model every minute detail of the design. The tools for creating detail drawings of your design are examined in this chapter. You will also learn how to use existing CAD details along with strategies for creating a library of Revit details.
Chapter 23: Sheets When it comes time to submit a project, you need to have a set of coordinated construction documents. In this chapter, you will learn the ways you can create and manage your project sheets. You will also learn how you can print and export your project sheets for submittal or coordination with clients.
Chapter 24: Fabrication This is a totally new workflow for Revit MEP 2016. Fabrication tools are a step in the direction of a fully life-cycle building project, from conceptual design to construction.
Chapter 25: Creating a Project Template The key to success with Revit projects is to have a good template file. Chapter 25 takes you through the major areas of a template file, offering ideas for settings that will make starting a project as simple and efficient as
