    Connecting design and fabrication with Revit and LayoutFAST plug-in

    Written by Alan Creel, VP Preconstruction Services, Miller Electric Co.  Our goal at Miller Electric Co. is to be a forward-thinking, innovative company. That means understanding our clients’ unique requirements. To do that, we have invested in technology that takes into consideration many variables, including their data infrastructure needs and energy efficiency requirements.  I’d like […]

  • MEP fabrication in Revit

    Convert MEP design intent models to MEP fabrication detail models in BIM

    The Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection now includes Revit and Fabrication CADmep, enabling mechanical and plumbing contractors to connect detailing and fabrication to BIM. Use a single fabrication database and a variety of tools to detail, coordinate, and prepare BIM detail models for pricing, MEP fabrication and installation. Working in Revit for MEP, you can […]

  • What’s in the Autodesk AEC Collection for Revit MEP users

    The Autodesk Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Collection gives you access to a set of integrated tools — including Revit — that equip you to meet any project challenge – now and in the future.  Here’s the full list of products and services included in an AEC Collection subscription. MEP engineers and detailers using Revit may […]

  • Using Revit, Dynamo and Navisworks for better MEP Coordination

    Let’s take a look at a clash detection workflow between Revit, Dynamo Studio, and Navisworks Manage that can help improve design optimization and efficiencies in building design coordination. This workflow streams clash results between MEP and structural designs using a live link between Revit and Navisworks with Dynamo, and improves clash detection throughout the Building Information […]

  • Model piping faster with P&ID Modeler for Revit 2018.1

    We are pleased to announce the release of Revit P&ID Modeler for Revit 2018.1. Revit P&ID Modeler helps you model piping faster and more efficiently using P&IDs (piping and instrumentation diagrams) from a Plant 3D Collaboration project directly within Revit. A common request from our customers across the building and industrial industry has been to […]

  • Exporting PCF Files from Revit 2018 – Part 2 (Assemblies)

    PCF and Assemblies In a prior post, we showed how to output pipe fabrication parts to a PCF file.  If you are using Assemblies in Revit to generate assembly views, and want to output a PCF of that assembly, you will find that you need to make some enhancements to the PCF output macro. To […]

    Exporting PCF Files from Revit 2018

    Revit 2018.0 has the ability to generate Piping Component Files (PCF) files from fabrication level of detail piping models using a simple macro.   PCF files are used in the piping industry to automate a variety of process, such as stress analysis, generation of documentation (such as isometrics), and even to automate shop equipment. The PCF […]

  • Revit MEP 2018 Electrical Circuit Pathway

    What’s New in Revit MEP 2018 for Electrical Circuit Pathway

    Revit 2018 enables you to modify an electrical circuit path for more accurate voltage drop calculations. You can choose to edit the circuit path by selecting Farthest Device, All Devices, or Custom and manually edit the circuit path. You can manually adjust the offset (elevation) and position of the circuit path as well as set […]

  • Revit MEP 2018 Energy Analysis

    What’s New in Revit MEP 2018 for Energy Analysis

    Energy analytical model – outside air enhancements Would you like to cover all internal gains, occupancy schedules, and outdoor air requirements with a single setting from a list of ASHRAE 62.1 activities?  What if you could use the same data from your BIM model for more detailed energy analysis in simulation software like Autodesk Insight, […]
