With AutoCAD Revit MEP Suite you can achieve high speed of designing and engineering calculations, coordination of presentations and the building documentation with model. Thus, expenses of time and means for acquisition of the given decision, its introduction and training to work with it will be completely justified. Статьи
AutoCAD Revit MEP Suite it is intended for designing of engineering systems of buildings: the mechanical equipment, electric and sanitary networks. The product covers all stages of performance of the project – from working out of its general concept before preparation design-engineering specifications. It allows engineers-designers to achieve high efficiency and accuracy, and also to coordinate the work with activity of colleagues and accessory manufacturers.
Let's consider features AutoCAD Revit MEP Suite.
The program includes full features of Revit Architecture for architecturally-building designing. Special functions of designing of internal engineering communications are added, construction of models of engineering networks of plumbing and sanitary, heating and ventilation, electricians is carried out. Reception of the target documentation is realised within the limits of uniform information model. In the program study of various variants of trace is possible, predesigns of systems are carried out. Revit MEP has a database of the parametrical engineering equipment and the built in visualisation tools. Format DWG is supported.
Tools of this program follow thought of the engineer. Revit MEP it is based on technology of information modelling of buildings and allows to investigate projects of engineering systems long before their physical embodiment. The made changes automatically extend on all project:
- faster and faultless acceptance of design decisions;
- obtaining new and lucrative orders due to improved interaction with customers;
- use of the competitive advantages given by information modelling, by optimisation of designing of engineering systems and their evident demonstration to customers;
- use of product Revit MEP in projects where information modelling is required;
- peak efficiency of processes of designing of engineering systems and engineering specifications formation thanks to automation of current working procedures by means of AutoCAD MEP.
Let's consider coordination improvement thanks to the parametrical control.
The high management efficiency in Revit MEP is reached by the project and the documentation thanks to means of information modelling. At designing of internal communications of a building and preparation of the documentation it allows to reduce essentially quantity of the errors arising owing to inconsistency of work of designers, engineers and architects. The built in visualisation tools allow to raise quality of dialogue with clients and to accelerate decision-making process. The initial model of a building from which engineers on internal communications work, undertakes from Revit Architecture or Revit Structure.
Let's consider designing of power effective buildings.
In Revit MEP functions of calculation of loadings on heat/cold supply which allow to expedite power consumption calculations are built in, and also to form reports on loadings on heating and ventilation systems for the warm and cold period of year. Optimum designing of systems is based on information model of a building, and search of right decisions is promoted by the realistic design scenarios working in real time. Revit MEP in common with service Integrated Environmental Solutions (IES) helps to reduce number of design errors and in the best way to set strategy of creation of the project of a power effective building. By means of the built in means of the analysis of operational characteristics the information model of a building allows to optimise decision-making process. Besides, Revit MEP supports language green building extensible mark-up language (gbXML) in which the information on premises, zones and lighting devices can be transferred. The exported files gbXML are used at calculation of loadings in foreign appendices. Calculations of loadings on heat/cold supply, illumination on norms Leed, thermal energy, etc. – the important condition of minimisation of negative influence of projected buildings on environment.
Let's consider calculation of sections and resistance for pipelines and air lines.
The built in settlement functions allow to recalculate the sizes and to count resistance of systems of heating and ventilation according to building norms and rules. Tools of calculation of the sizes of systems instantly update dimensional and design data of pipeline and ventilating systems without use of additional software. The trial and error method of the sizes is set by the user in functions Duct Sizing and Pipe Sizing. For air lines throttling, and methods of resistance, as much as possible admissible speeds and a method are accessible to pipelines – resistance and as much as possible admissible speeds.
Let's consider modelling of ventilating and pipeline systems.
Intuitive means of configuration allow to modify model easily. As always in such cases, Revit MEP automatically updates kinds of model and sheets, helping to support a coordination of the project and the documentation to it. Heating and ventilation systems are created by means of 3D-modelling of air lines and pipelines. Almost on any kind the model can be edited, simply moving its elements. Work with model on cuts and facades is supposed. At modification of the project all kinds of model and sheets are automatically updated are provides accuracy and a coordination of drawings and the documentation at all stages of work.
Let's consider colour display of characteristics.
The colour scheme of premises is useful by visual transfer of design ideas to colleagues and customers. All changes in plans with the colour scheme automatically extend on all model. You can create any quantity of schemes of colour designations and work with them throughout all process. The 3D-technology of modelling of air lines and pipelines allows to create systems of heating, water supply, air-conditioning to which by means of colour schemes values of a design and actual stream are presented, zoning, etc. Color schemes also it is possible to create for electric parametres – such as power loading and light exposure on square metre. Now it is not required to rummage in tables and to lead round fragments of plans colour pencils.
Let's consider the analysis of engineering communications.
The program provides increase of productivity and efficiency of designing, allowing to reveal and correct quickly sites with the big loss of pressure. In Revit MEP interactive possibilities of change fittings, forms and the configurations of system allowing at once to see new value of loss of static pressure and properties of a stream are realised. Revit MEP shows a critical direction of a stream for the main lines, taps and for system as a whole.
Let's consider automatic electrical wiring formation.
Revit MEP automatically connects lighting devices and sockets to corresponding distributive panel. You can choose an optimum variant of distributing from among offered by the program. For maintenance of accuracy of the project some chains unite in the main cable. Process of addition of explanatories in the documentation is simple and thus differs high detail and accuracy.
Let's consider specifications of panels.
Specifications of electric panels are automatically formed in process of project working out. It is possible to counterbalance loadings with their help and to replace the chains approaching to devices. Replacement of chains is carried out by means of the built in editor of chains. Specifications of panels can be formatted according to the standards accepted in the organisation. Doubtless advantage is possibility of replacement of electric devices directly in specifications of panels.
Let's consider light exposure calculation.
For automatic definition of levels of light exposure of premises the method of division into zones is used. The user sets level of reflective ability of surfaces of a premise, connects standard IES-files and specifies height of a working plane then the system counts average value of light exposure.
Let's consider modelling of systems of water supply and the water drain.
Means of configuration of systems in 3D-space automatically place struts and drains according to the set initial parametres. At entering of any changes other fragments of the project and drawing kinds are updated. The important advantage of the program is the split-hair accuracy of a lining of systems and them coordination with the documentation.
Let's consider two-forked associativity.
You can change model in any sequence: information storage in the uniform coordinated database provides a constant urgency of model. The technology of parametrical modelling automatically extends changes to all project, excepting occurrence in it of out-of-date fragments. One of the major advantages Revit MEP is possibility to make change in the specification and on the basis of it to reconstruct all project.
Let's consider parametrical components.
Functions of work with parametrical components provide possibility of evident graphic realisation of design ideas. Such components can be applied in the most difficult engineering systems, and from the user it is not required to know programming languages.
Let's consider building-engineering specifications.
Plans, cuts, knots, kinds and specifications are automatically formed of model that provides accuracy of the information displayed on them. Synchronisation of kinds with a uniform database of the project provides the coordinated management of changes. Thanks to technology of information modelling developers of engineering systems have an opportunity to let out the quality documentation.
Let's consider automatic support of an urgency of drawings.
Cuts, facades and references to fragments are extremely exact. All data, a drawing, knots, specifications, drawings and sheets in the documentation complete set reflects a current condition of the project. It is not necessary to spend long hours for the coordination of elements of the documentation among themselves: Revit MEP does it automatically.
Let's consider a browser of systems.
This tool allows to carry out check of integrity of engineering systems without any difficulties, quickly to find out unbalanced loadings and not attached elements. A guarantee of that all elements are connected with systems and meet loading requirements, is important for correct selection of the sizes. Working with Revit MEP the designer can be assured that engineering systems of buildings are grouped correctly.
Let's consider support of formats DWG/DWF/DXF/DGN.
Thanks to support of formats DWG, DWF, DXF and DGN full compatibility is provided at data exchange. Possibility to import and export the data in conventional branch format DWG and also to establish with them communications does Revit MEP by one of the best decisions on degree of coordination and teamwork possibilities.
Let's consider visualisation.
For representation of projects to customers photorealistic visualisation are often used. Revit MEP supports visualisation possibility on 3D-kinds with addition of such effects, as illumination sources, trees and bushes, people. To show degree of light exposure of premises, in model add a sunlight. As sources of natural illumination apply elements of families from transparent materials. Thanks to the photorealistic images received in Revit MEP, the customer receives full representation about the project even prior to the beginning of civil work.
