AutoDesk REVIT MEP is a software database used by engineers such as Electrical, Mechanical, and Plumbing to coordinate with each other and other disciplines such as Architects and Structural Engineers during the design process of a project. REVIT MEP can be used to create REVIT Families. REVIT Families are the building block for transferring information to the software database and receiving information from the software database when using REVIT MEP.

Two key concepts in a REVIT Family are “dimensions” and “reference planes.” The course discusses the following concepts:

  • Dimensions, which are used to control an object’s shape or movement in a REVIT Family
    • Definition of a dimension
    • Different types of dimensions
    • Inserting different types of dimensions in a REVIT Family
    • Labeling different types of dimensions in a REVIT Family
    • Characteristics regarding the different types of dimensions
  • Reference planes, which are used as a platform for modeling (constructing) an object in a REVIT Family
    • Definition of a reference plane
    • Different types of reference planes
    • Different types of views in a REVIT Family
    • Modeling ground level and non-ground level objects in different views using reference planes
