Class Description:

This class will focus on the essential tools to create a complete Sprinkler Design using Hydratec for Revit tools. This will allow the student to immediately start using Revit to create sprinkler plans. By utilizing a familiar AutoCAD background as the start of this process the student will be able to focus on what’s new and exciting in sprinkler design using Revit before learning the intricacies of the full Revit environment.

This hands-on class will walk the student through the complete process of creating a sprinkler model (including sprinklers, pipes, fittings, and valves) and subsequently calculating it, listing it and creating a complete set of submittal plans for it. The pace of this class will attempt to allow each student follow each lesson live during class.

A strong focus of this class is to enable the student to complete their very next project using these tools.

Training Includes:

  • 1 live one hour preparation session (Tuesday kickoff meeting)
  • 3 live 3 hour on-line sessions (subsequent Thur, Tues & Thur)
  • 2 additional live sessions for further Revit immersion plus Q&A (1 & 2 weeks later)
  • Access to every recording for each session
  • Reviewed homework assignment following the 3-day class
  • Live hands-on opportunity to model a simple sprinkler system in Revit on top of an AutoCAD background (No Revit experience required)

Recommended Prerequisites:

  • Autodesk Revit software (No Revit experience required)
