Strong knowledge of terminology, systems, and workflows commonly found in the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing disciplines, as well as Revit® MEP (RME) 2017-2020 Level I (or equiv.) ...or… 6-12 months continuous RME 2017-2020 experience
Intermediate / Advanced
Who Can Benefit From This Class: 
Professionals responsible for the development of custom Revit content and project standards, including engineers/designers, production staff, and CAD/BIM Managers

Go beyond the basics of Revit® and take your skills to the next level with this progressive two-day class. Focusing on the creation of customized family content, learn how to create shared parameters for devices and equipment, set up pre-formatted schedules in a project template, document through the use of tags, learn the use of filters to distinguish families, and understand the aspects of creating complex families. While each example demonstrated in class is discipline specific, the topics covered in the curriculum are applicable across the disciplines.
