Event Description

Hello 505 BIMer’s!

Please join us for our,

505 BIM User’s Group October 2019 Monthly Meeting

Thursday October 10th at 11:30 at CNM's Advanced Technology Center room 132. (THIS IS A NEW CLASSROOM!)

This month’s feature presentation is:

Plumbing Revit MEP: Drop and Go—Let the Information Flow

This month B&P will be presenting their Autodesk University topics. Though the presentation is geared to Revit MEP, Architects and General Contractors will also learn a great deal. I highly encourage all to attend.

Attendees will see how they can use out-of-the box Revit MEP categories, connectors, and plumbing families to provide “What Revit Wants” to “Let the Information Flow” through plumbing systems to schedules. This session will include a demonstration of improved plumbing Revit MEP design workflows that use software features to automate information flow. We’ll discuss lessons learned during content development, and we’ll review processes. And we’ll demonstrate strategies for addressing International Plumbing Code (IPC) and Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC) to build a foundation for calculation and design of plumbing fixture demands.
