Troubleshooting Revit MEP

A 20 minute video from Autodesk's Harlan Brumm and Jerry Lee Smith covering:

Overview of the Revit MEP Workflow
  • Create new project using MEP template
  • Save Arch model as central file on server
  • Link in models using origin-to-origin
  • setting links to be room bounding
  • copy/monitor levels
  • Setting up views and apply view templates to views
  • create levels to account for plenum spaces
Troubleshooting Spaces and Zones
  • space not visible in view
  • rooms are "unoccupied"

Troubleshooting Revit MEP Performance
  • Not following workflow
  • not creating logical systems
  • large connected duct networks
  • complicated families
  • poorly connected elements
  • Limit color schemes
  • place endcaps on open ducts
  • ensure flow direction on connectors is correct

    This has very good information. But this gives presssure drop across single of piece of duct.

    How can we get pressure drop across the longest path from AHU to Last Diffusers?
