Plumbing Code Calculations with Spreadsheet Link and Schedule XL

August 5, 2020 at 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM UTC-6

Revit® has trouble with complex calculations and the ability to run cross-category math. This can be frustrating when design calculations need to be run. In the case of plumbing code calculations, we need to take the occupancy of a defined area (floor, smoke compartment, etc…) and use these totals to derive the number of different plumbing fixtures that are required by code to be designed into these areas. Many firms run these calculations manually, but this can be done far more efficiently. This webinar will demonstrate how a re-usable workflow can generate occupancy, calculate plumbing fixture counts and generate graphics for use in Revit to present this information in a live model.

Learning Objectives:

  • Establishing a repeatable workflow
  • Generating reusable Excel® templates
  • Leveraging Excel formulas to drive calculations and graphics
  • Importing Excel graphics into Revit sheets

Introduction to the MEPPP™ (HVAC and Plumbing)

October 22, 2020 at 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM UTC-6

Revit® is a powerful MEP modeling tool, but requires extensive up-front work by savvy HVAC and plumbing users to create useful project templates and content libraries. A fully developed starter project and library can require thousands of hours to create. The MEP Productivity Pack™ (MEPPP) from CTC Software™ allows firms to skip this process entirely by providing a set of standards implemented throughout a starter project, a sample project and a vast amount of family content based on actual manufacturer data. The MEPPP has been vetted by multiple industry design professionals. Not only is the MEPPP an all-in-one, get-started-now package for firms new to Revit, but for established Revit users it provides advanced features created by Revit experts that are found in no other industry product. This webinar will focus primarily on the HVAC and plumbing portions of the productivity pack.

Learning Objectives:

  • Overview of the features and content
  • Explanation of how to ‘get-started-now’ in Revit for HVAC and plumbing design
  • Demonstration of advanced HVAC and plumbing content
  • Extract equipment information from the mechanical model

HIVE User Management with Excel and Active Directory Sync

December 1, 2020 at 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM UTC-6

Managing many users and groups in HIVE one by one can be inefficient when you have more than 10 users. This webinar will demonstrate exactly how users can be very efficiently added, updated and just generally managed. This will allow you to far more easily assign groups, update offices and departments for users via the Excel workflow. Additionally, the user creation and disabling can be entirely synchronized with your internal Active Directory, greatly minimizing your user and group management tasks. Join us live in this webinar to get all user management questions answered.

Learning Objectives:

  • Essential User and group management strategies
  • How to obtain an export of all users
  • How to push changes to users and groups into HIVE
  • Associating Active Directory to your HIVE account
