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.
