    Oh I get it. The owner signs the contract and they know it's "intent". And I wouldn't expect any consultant firm to "fully" coordinate. It's very good if a consultant firm decides for itself to...

    And they make a ton of money because of this mentality. Poor quality designs = good change order payout for the contractor. And I'm not talking about something that would be missed because of...

    Yeah it's the same old story. People just don't want to put in the effort. People want to cut corners with Revit and you can't. You aren't supposed to draw in Revit, you model a building. It's a...

    I would propose dropping the WIPEOUT tool altogether and instead use Masking techniques via True Color + Solid Hatch, or a 0% screened STB Style/CTB Color.

    Yeah, that is pretty simple. My business caters heavily to the MEP BIM construction world. I use Revit for BIM collaboration and for shop drawings. I'm beginning to get a lot of design/build projects...

    That is correct. Only System Families, not Loadable Families.

    I never use an existing model. I always copy/paste major System Families, like Duct, Pipes, etc, and then highlight them collectively and apply my own routing types. From there I connect everything...

    They're all fundamentals so either way you go will cover the basics.

    The first two companies you mention are all in the Dallas area... is that were you are? Personally, the best MEP training is...

    Simple. As in, I just placed one just to see if it would or not. I did not try at all manipulating it.

    Side topics. It happens. :)

    Hmm, that's not accurate. You can also apply rebar to Structural Columns. So... I created an In-Place Model of a regular column, and no rebar options. Did the same thing but made it a structural...

    I am in the AEC industry and have not used In-Place Families. I don't see why it wouldn't work though. I'm curious to test it.

    Agreeing with the other guys. This is not a new idea. Already out there. I am a Revit user and I know the rebar and reinforcement tools (which are all 3D already) are very slick and can create very...

    Owning is definitely nice. For a one time price you can use it as long as you need until it's necessary to upgrade.

    Yeah, good point. But LT is only $45/mo for monthly, or $26/mo if you buy 3 year up front:

    What do you mean "expense wise"? AutoCAD 2006 hasn't been currently for sale for a decade now. Do you have an older copy or something?

    Autodesk now has desktop licensing which is very...

    If you move the level, you'll move the MEP elements - period. But!! It shouldn't be as bad as it seems. There are several processes that take minutes to get everything back in order.

    Is this some type of network installer? Has the installer file been modified or anything? Have you tried simply downloading the installers fresh from Autodesk?

    I actually gave you the wrong info... that was my code to NOT show Xrefs in my Layer Manager. Which, AutoCAD now does automatically. This was implemented in my template well before this was a...

    Then something is wrong with that file. Maybe out of date, or whatever the reason the installer knows it's not the file it needs. Sometimes stored installer files can be the exact same name, but from...

    I just think the original install location on the G:\ drive doesn't have the files there to reference. Is this an update? Does it let you change the path after you click OK?
