it remains my personal opinion, but by dint of attending conferences around the BIM,
I'm really starting to think that Revit is good for Archis, by account,
for technical trades, I'm not sure it's the simplest work tool
nor the most intuitive of the market ...
Being more specialist in the big work, it is video makes me dream:
And I think that to get to this with Revit, it takes a lot of practice hours and developments ...
for information, REVIT MEP trainings (but also structures, etc.) available via MAN AND MACHINE, it is trainings that can enter within the framework of the collective actions (that is to say that it is trainings supported to 100% without impacting the training budget, do not hesitate to contact me if necessary
The strong point of REVIT is that it proposes a package of 3 product ARCHI, STRUCT and MEP in 1 and many switches on the product for reasons of ease of exchange ... There would be things to criticize and to review c is safe but the return I have is not so bad There is also the fact that many work on Autocad and therefore naturally go to REVIT which remains an Autodesk product ...
Afterwards on the part structure they are in full development on the part reinforcement and metal conenxion because when one sees what makes Allplan and teckla which have a good advance on the subject, that seems to send heavy c ' is safe and Autodesk must hang on
Afterwards, in terms of MEP network traceability, REVIT is performing well on the duct tracing part, as well as on gravity-free ducting. This is a problem when you need to connect tuayux with Gravitaire. Regarding the tracing of cable trays it is well done although CDC flags it does not know unless we start on manufacturing elements. On the electric ducts it works well too. The big HIC to return to the electricity is that the library is not almost exploitable, and that it is necessary to make his families, evening find them at the manufacturers who rely heavily on the format RFA and RVT.
Finally for the electrical system part we will be quite limited in terms of power calculation, it is possible to make power balances but it is very basic. Better to go through a CANECO app, FISA MEP stabiplan or magicad I let the experts give you their opinion on the apps mentioned above ... But I have confidence in the future . I am not an expert in Elec but I have formed some companies in elec and my times they are doing pretty well in view of what is requested in the EXE plan of BIM.
We have trainings "Revit Mep CVC", and "Revit MEP Elec" (multi level) on Rennes, Nantes and Metz,.
Rennes, being only at 1h30 of Paris (LGV), it facilitates the movement and makes it possible to work in the train (rather than to spend one's time in traffic jams).
We have several levels, and our trainer MEP is a fluent engineer / elec, having practiced in BE, it allows to have an interlocutor who will facilitate the training and your evolution to the digital model.
In addition, we have developed tools specifically for BE Fluide / Elec, Installers, which facilitates the transition to Revit.
