Isometric Views in Revit MEP ?

Hello,

I know that Revit MEP can of course provide some 3D models of our buildings and its equipments; but I'm wondering if there is a way to have some isometric views of our plumbing network (i.e. I mean a true isometric view being unscaled if possible).

In affirmative case, could you please advise me how to do it?

Thanks in advance,

Best regards,

Sylvain

Currently there is no ability to provide a "traditional" isometric view of the elements that have been modeled. You can (as you note) create 3D views of the model, and limit what elements are displayed in those 3D views, but there is no "built in" capability to produce NTS Plumbing Iso's.

Okay thank you Jason for the fast answer.

By the way, do you know if there is a way to convert our Revit MEP 3D model in a PCF file.... in order to transfer it in the Bentley Autoplant Isogen software, and finally get a Traditionnal NTS Isoview?

Kind regards,

Sylvain

I'm not aware of the ability to create a PCF file from Revit MEP, and quite honestly, I am not familiar enough with Isogen to know if there might be some other options to get you from Revit to Isogen. Sorry.

Jason,
Do you know of anyway to tag the piping and plbg fixtures in this view. I have done what you indicate, but now would like to tag it, by Revit since the information is there. I don't know if writing a custom program through the API would allow this or not, as it appears Revit does not allow you to.

You can not tag in an iso view, I would just use good old text.

Adding Text to an Isometric is not the right way to do things. If you mis-type something on the Iso, it may mislead the Plumbing Contractor. Alot of plumbing contractors tend to look at the isometric views for sizing, etc. Why can't a $6k program that already has the tags on the piping allow it to be viewed on the Isometric view.

Just my 2 cents worth. I still have $5999.98 to go.

Hi Sylvain,

 

I know it's been a while since you addressed this subject, but did you ever solve your problem?

 

We are at a crossroads where we need to deicde which direction to take. We have recently ( last 2 years) started using Autoplant. There are lieks and dislikes about it, but one thing I really like is it's ability to generate isometrics complete with mat'l list. Because our structural dept uses Revit, and also several other reasons: I get the impression Revit MEP is more user friendly, it produces more attracted 3d views, one of our other offices has a subtantial library, we are thinking of switching to Revit. However, if I cannot easily produce isos like I can with Autoplant, that is a major drawback.
