Revit MEP Level 1

About The Course

To take full advantage of Building Information Modeling, the Autodesk Revit 2020 Fundamentals for MEP course has been designed to teach the concepts and principles of creating 3D parametric models of MEP system from engineering design through construction documentation.

This course is intended to introduce users to the software's user interface and the basic HVAC, electrical, and piping/plumbing components that make the Autodesk Revit software a powerful and flexible engineering modeling tool. The course will also familiarize users with the tools required to create, document, and print the parametric model. The examples and practices are designed to take the users through the basics of a full MEP project from linking in an architectural model to construction documents.

Note: This learning course is designed for those using Autodesk Revit 2020 Fundamentals for MEP with a Windows operating system. This learning course is not designed for the Autodesk Revit 2020 Fundamentals for MEP for Mac software.
