AutoDesk Revit MEP Fundamentals


Course Description

The Revit MEP 2012 Essentials course is intended to introduce students to the software’s user interface and the basic HVAC, electrical, and piping/plumbing components that make Revit MEP a powerful and flexible engineering modeling tool. The objective is to familiarize you with the tools necessary to create, document, and print your parametric model. Examples and practices are designed to take you through the basics of a full MEP project, from linking in an architectural model to construction documents.

Course Prerequisites

No previous CAD experience is necessary. However, drafting, design or engineering experience is a plus. It is recommended that you have a working knowledge of: Microsoft Windows: Vista, 2007, XP, 2000.
