Back to Basics: Revit for MEP Users – Linking Files & Checking Room Bounding
This is the first in a series of short videos designed to help the novice Revit user. While my videos are focused on the workflows of an MEP user, a lot of what I cover is applicable for other trades.
In this first video, I will cover four specific topics in Revit for the MEP user:
- How to open a template in Revit
- How to link in an architectural file
- How to check room bounding
- How to look at the phase mapping
View the full video and demo below.

The newly released Autodesk® Revit® 2017 brings more stability and uptime with improvements to over 100 functions in the program. Revit is made for BIM and, in the 2017 release, features more efficient processes to connect architectural design, MEP and structural engineering. Below is a collection of resources to help you discover what is possible in Revit 2017.
If you are used to creating your construction documents in AutoCAD, you understand the time it takes working in Paper Space, adding your Viewports, and printing. Learn how you can save stress and time by creating and managing your documents in Revit.
Many people think Dynamo isn’t for them based on the notion that it’s only useful for complex geometry or twisting towers. Lacking programming knowledge scares some others away. The reality, however, is that this powerful Revit add-on can be useful for anyone and everyone who uses Revit.
Since July 31, 2016, Autodesk is no longer selling new subscriptions or perpetual licenses for Design & Creation Suites. In their place, three new industry collections were introduced to provide you value that well exceeds the premium suites. Here are 5 things you need to know about the switch.
Question: How do object enablers work in Navisworks?
Expert Solution from Heidi Boutwell, CADLearning’s Infrastructure Content Manager: Autodesk uses object enablers in all of its platforms, including Navisworks. Object enablers ensure that model objects are displayed properly.
Read on for some tools and workflow tips that can improve your day-to-day processes.
Many users know how to create a simple spool drawing from their pipe layout, but when it comes to creating a batch spool there seems to be some difficulty. Learn how to create a Batch Spool for CADmep from Philip Charlson.
Over the last few weeks, Autodesk has released a couple of updates for various software. I also have some really cool videos and articles that show some helpful tips & tricks for Civil 3D. Read on for all the updates this month.
Greetings from the Infrastructure Universe! In addition to some recent updates to note, I also have some awesome resources for InfraWorks and Civil 3D for you. Read on for all the updates and make sure you watch the videos.
Question: I just want to view a Revit model. How can I do this?
Expert Solution: Download the Revit trial version and use the Revit Viewer.
If you’ve ever played the “I’m not touching you game” as a child, you know how important boundaries are and our need for space. Revit families are no different. A 3D element provides a great parametric visual of what we can expect outside of the virtual world, but without the proper clearances the equipment may not be given the space it truly needs to function.
Revit 2019 is finally here! Check out my conversation with CADLearning’s Building Content Manager Jason Boehning about some of our favorite new features and what they’ll mean for Revit users.
Although the rendering option in Navisworks continues to improve, many of us want basic colors for our 3D Spatial Coordination and other useful tools. Many owners are dictating what colors they want model objects to be, to improve communication during design review and other important meetings. Improvement means change, and change often means moving buttons and commands. For those having trouble coloring their models, follow this sequence:
Autodesk came out with their mid-release update of Revit. With the release, comes a number of user-requested enhancements that just can’t wait for the next release. Philip Charlson shares what you need to know about these enhancements:
Many architectural designers face the issue of bridging the gaps between preliminary design, design development and construction documentation in Revit. Users needed a tool to seamlessly move their designs in and out of Revit throughout their design process. With FormIt, you can start producing your 3D model designs on your tablet before your morning commute, pick up where you started on your office desktop and switch back to your tablet during your lunch-time meeting with a potential client.
