Check out our Revit Basic Online Training (July)

Class Description:

This class will expand creating a complete Sprinkler Design using Hydratec for Revit tools. The process will begin with a set of linked Revit linked files and the set up needed to start a stand- alone fire protection project. This will allow the student to immediately start using Revit to create sprinkler plans. In addition to a review of the basic design functions of modeling, calculating and listing a project, emphasis will be placed on coordinating that FP project with the other trades using clash detection inside of Revit and in conjunction with Navisworks. This coordination process will also highlight an advanced understanding of the pipe configuration changes available through the Hydratec for Revit tools. This class will also include model detailing of hangers and their inclusion in the field layout for hanger inserts using a Robotic Total Station (Trimble).

This hands-on class will allow for the student to follow along with the lessons using files provided for each lesson. The pace of this class will be set by the amount of material covered and will likely require more follow up exercise and review of the recordings than in the Revit Basic Online Training class.

A strong focus of this class is to expand the students knowledge of the complete Hydratec tool set to allow application to more sophisticated projects.

Training Includes:

  • 1 live one hour preparation session
  • 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 sprinkler system in Revit and revise for it for coordination with the other trades. All lessons will be actual Revit model for an expanded BIM experience

Recommended Prerequisites:

  • Autodesk Revit software (No Revit experience required)
  • Some sprinkler design experience
  • Basic understanding NFPA standards necessary to apply the lessons
  • HydraCAD for AutoCAD (or equivalent) experience including Calculations & Listing
  • A prompt specific plan to use the new tools

Agenda & Schedule

Dates Available:

  • August 1st (Intermediate Online)
  • Classes will be scheduled at a later date for November

Training Objectives:

  • This class will prepare the student to:
    • Link an AutoCAD background into your Revit sprinkler model
    • Layout a Simple Sprinkler System including:
      • Layout of sprinklers and branch lines

      • Layout of automatic sprinkler riser, feed main and cross main piping

      • Automated methods for connecting branch lines to cross mains
