By creating a path from Revit MEP to Autodesk Fabrication 2014, contractors can take design-intent models from designers and engineers and efficiently create models that are built from the same, integrated managed content database, improving collaboration and workflows between design, detailing, fabrication.
Using SysQue, Revit MEP 2014 is enhanced to model systems with materials and sizes based on actual manufacturer products by name and part number. SysQue web services extend the Revit MEP BIM data to include material cost, labor values, submittal documents and procurement part numbers, and also includes Excel reporting – making your model data-rich and ready for a multitude of additional functions – including cost analysis, prefabrication, manufacturing and installation.
Revit MEP with SysQue services supports level of development (LOD) 300 and 400 as required to produce both construction and fabrication-level documentation.
* TSI’s shop standards have been verified by the SMACNA Testing & Research Institute to the SMACNA/ANSI HVAC Duct Construction Standard – Metal & Flexible, 3rd edition.
SysQue Data is managed and downloaded directly to the Revit MEP 2014 add-in application (SysQue Systems). The managed content subscription service includes real manufacturer-specific Revit MEP 3013 content and sends update notifications when content is revised or updated by the manufacturer.
The BOM is created to LOD 400 constructible definitions (suitable for fabrication and assembly) as defined by the AIA BIM standards. This service reports live directly from the cloud that is home to hundreds of thousands of line items. Revit families that need to flex more than one size require size-dependent values for weight, cost and install times. SysQue keys off a unique data ID, including size, to return detailed reports that export directly from Revit MEP with SysQue BOM to Excel.
Hanger and supports are structure-aware and adjust hanger spacing and rod length based on structural beams versus the underside of the floor above.
