Revit 2018.2 New Feature – Filtering by Fabrication Service Type

Revit 2018.2 New Feature – Filtering by Fabrication Service Type
New and hot off the press is another new feature from the Autodesk Revit 2018.2 update. This feature gives you more control over the visibility and the look of your fabrication content. Revit view filters have now become even better with the additional option of using Fabrication Services type. This allows you to now add the colours back to the design once it has been converted from design in...

Revit 2018.2 new feature – resizing Fabrication runs

Revit 2018.2 new feature – resizing Fabrication runs
If you have installed the latest Autodesk Revit 2018.2 update you will hopefully find this time saving addition to the Fabrication toolset very useful. Using ‘Change Size’ you can now re-size an entire selected run of fabrication ductwork, pipework or containment in one go. The first step is to select the required fabrication run in the normal method, then in the ribbon you will see the new ‘Chang...

Powering Your Model with Revit Circuits - Part 3

Powering Your Model with Revit Circuits - Part 3
Circuits in Revit can take many forms. Power, Data and Fire Protection to name but a few, whatever the circuit you wish to create, the process is very similar and relatively simple once you’re familiar with it. Naturally you need to have the correct equipment loaded into your project to create circuits, the default Autodesk content is generally set up well enough to begin with. The benefits of cir...

See What You Require - Navisworks Section Planes

See What You Require - Navisworks Section Planes
When working with Navisworks, quite often you will have quite a sizeable project in terms of area. In these cases, sometimes it’s difficult to take a good look at just the areas you need. Many design packages allow you to create sections and Navisworks is no exception. Much like the others they provide views of a localised area of the project. Once the section is produced a viewpoint can be create...

Revit Rooms and Spaces – Missing or not?

Revit Rooms and Spaces – Missing or not?
Rooms and Spaces are very similar items in Revit. Adding them to your project can give you some useful information and allow some flexibility in the design, albeit quite different. However, there's always the risk of accidentally deleting them if you haven't pinned these elements, which can be so frustrating! Incidentally, if you do happen to delete a room or a space you will get the below warning...

Editing Configuration Menu - Fabrication CADmep / ESTmep / CAMduct
CADmep comes pre-installed with huge variety of content. When you first launch CADmep or ESTmep, you will be presented with the Edit Configuration dialogue box to allow you to choose which catalogue to base your job on. You can also copy the default catalogues from here to make a new version based on existing data. Once you choose the required catalogue, you can tick ‘Remember this next time’ and...

Fabrication CADmep modelling using ‘Takeoff as Cut-In’

Fabrication CADmep modelling using ‘Takeoff as Cut-In’
With most things in life there are more than one way of doing things and CADmep is no exception. Rather than using the attacher arrow to input components (read about that by clicking the arrow below), we will in this article look at using the ‘Takeoff as Cut-In’ function. This is particularly useful when you wish to add inline components into an existing run, for example a volume control damper pa...

L1 vs A? – Revit Circuiting Quick Tip

L1 vs A? – Revit Circuiting Quick Tip
Out of the box, the phase referencing for electrical circuits in Revit defaults to the American standard of A, B & C. This means your circuit references will look like the following for 3 phase circuits – A1, B1 & C1 etc... A quick fix for this is to go into the Electrical Settings (shortcut ES) and amend the ‘Circuit Naming by Phase - Phase A, B & C Label’. See below: As seen in scre...
