    Revit Luminaire and two switch

    So I'm quite new with Revit and I still most of time I have no clue what I'm doing. But now I was wondering is it possible to add two switch to lighting? I haven't been able to do that, is it really possible?
  2. Hi Does anyone know how I can change the colour of only a small section of pipe? Thanks
  3. First I'll say that currently this is stemming from an HVAC drafter/ designer that just wants to put out some quality drawings in an efficient amount of time with not a lot of hassle - kind of like in AutoCAD. This is also coming from 20+ years CAD experience here so I am not talking out of my arse. From AutoLISP programming to Revit I am a drafter/ designer. Thus far my findings are that Revit is a horrible drafting tool (or plotting tool) IMO. From poor representation of symbology to the far too involved annotation tools it is not worth a penny in the long run. It may have some nice features but if our clients didn't require a RVT model we'd NEVER use it. After using Revit for several years now it still does not impress me. The many steps required to accomplish a simple task (especially regarding display) are simply not worth the time spent especially given the final result. Not too long ago there was an article/ blog about how the production side of generating a 3D model for use in Revit is far more desirable a task to complete inside of AutoCAD MEP so drafting issues/ headaches are minimized & workflow is maximized. The article focused on keeping your efforts outside of the Revit platform for production & ONLY using a RVT file for submittal of your required 3D model at time of turn in. Hopefully there are others doing this already that could assist in reviewing the process here so that others, like myself, can start to be more productive in this unfortunate software program that is currently being shoved down the throat of the industry that we work in. Thanks in advance... I hope. Note: Currently using Revit MEP 14 & 15 as well as AutoCAD MEP 14. Learned CAD on v12 DOS a looooong time ago (ITT Tech) & self taught Revit over the past 5 years.
  4. Hi all, Could you please advise me an easy method for having a separate file for a particular system. e.g.: I had a Revit mechanical file contains hvac piping, ducting and steam piping for boilers, now I need only the steam system in a separate file. Could you please assist..? rgds, john
  5. Has anyone developed a way on Revit MEP 2013 to automatically select a pump from a loaded family based on a specific flow rate calculated? As opposed to manually selecting the pump size yourself? It would be much appreciated if anyone can shine any light on this subject! Alex
  6. We are a plumbing and HVAC contractor looking for a 3D piping package for coordination drawings and prefabrication in the future. We do not do sheetmetal. I have heard that Revit MEP is overkill for what we are doing but on the otherhand also heard its the future. We are leaning twords AutoCad MEP but have been told that the librarys are not as up to date as a product like CadPipe or TSI which i believe are add ons?? Both CAD operators are very comfortable with AutoCad. It seems that alot of companies have revit models available for their equipment. If we went with a package other then Revit are these useless or can they also be imported into AutoCad MEP? Thanks in advance for he feedback.This forum has been a huge help to me.
