Autodesk Revit MEP 2012 released

Advanced Solutions released Autodesk Revit MEP 2012 Fundamentals and Autodesk Revit MEP 2012 Advanced training courseware for MEP engineers.

09/01/2011


Advanced Solutions announced the availability of Autodesk Revit MEP 2012 Fundamentals and Autodesk Revit MEP 2012 Advanced training courseware. Autodesk Revit MEP is the building information modeling (BIM) solution for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineers, providing purpose-built tools for building systems design, analysis and documentation.

Advanced Solutions’ Autodesk Revit MEP 2012 Fundamentals courseware is designed for HVAC, electrical, plumbing, piping and fire protection engineers and designers who want to take advantage of Revit MEP’s interactive, dynamic design functionality. Revit MEP, which is built on the long-running AutoCAD Revit Architecture platform, adds the MEP engineering tools needed to help design a comprehensive Revit-based building information model. Using the training manual, users will learn the foundations of MEP-object based design. Fundamentals of creating 3D parts are reviewed, along with a review of how Revit MEP fits into a three-step design process that is repeatable and predictable. An overview of the project browser tool from the engineer’s perspective is also covered. Finally, the user will learn how to leverage the space and zone tools to help perform energy analysis and develop LEED/sustainable design projects.

The Fundamentals courseware serves as a prerequisite to the Autodesk Revit MEP 2012 Advanced courseware. The Revit MEP Advanced manual is designed for MEP engineers and designers who want to take their Revit MEP designs to the next level, by extending their knowledge of optimizing content and display systems. This guide begins by reviewing how to create custom styles, system definitions and block based equipment styles. Creating a custom parametric fitting is also reviewed. The guide continues into the Revit Architecture display system, which helps the user control the visibility of MEP objects from different points of view.
