Autodesk Revit MEP

Autodesk Revit MEP is a building information modeling (BIM) software created by Autodesk for professionals who work in MEP engineering. MEP stands for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing which are the three engineering disciplines that are addressed by Revit MEP. The course will show you how to Link Revit models from other disciplines. You will learn how to create Spaces and Zones, then make the energy analysis. You will learn how to annotate, tag, detail, your model, along with creating and printing sheets. Once the architectural model is complete, MEP engineers will link the file to add MEP components. Upon completion, they can use the software to detect clashes between elements, create views, generate quantity schedules, and prepare documentations.
