Overview

About the Product

THE AUBIN ACADEMY MASTER SERIES: REVIT MEP 2011, is a concise manual focused squarely on the rationale and practicality of the Revit MEP process. This book emphasizes the process of creating projects in MEP rather than a series of independent commands and tools. The goal of each lesson is to help your students complete their projects successfully. Tools are introduced together in a focused process with a strong emphasis on "why" as well as "how." The text and exercises seek to give your students a clear sense of the value of the tools, and a clear indication of each tool's potential. THE AUBIN ACADEMY MASTER SERIES: REVIT MEP 2011, is designed to shorten your students' learning curve, raise their comfort level, and most importantly give them real life tested practical advice on the usage of the software to create mechanical, electrical, and plumbing designs and calculations. Empowered with the information within this book, your students will have insight into how to use Revit MEP to create coordinated project models and documentation.

Features

  • Includes practical project focused how-to exercises where your students learn by "doing".

  • Focused on MEP Production so your students can learn to create a coordinated model and documentation set.

  • Written by authors with real architectural and MEP experience who have over seventy five years combined building industry experience in Architecture, and MEP Engineering fields.

  • Focuses on the "Why" as well as the "How" with equal attention paid the "why" of the software as to the "how".

  • Provides "Power User/BIM Manager" tips throughout.
