Autodesk Revit 2016 uses the Autodesk Fabrication MEP configuration data defined in the current version of Autodesk Fabrication products CADmep, ESTmep, CAMduct.

Services from the configuration are added to the Revit project and are organized into groups as defined in the Autodesk Fabrication MEP products.

ITM components within the Services are inserted from the Revit MEP Fabrication Part browser.

Fabrication components provide detailed connection definitions, more granular control on fitting definitions, and standardized segment lengths, leading to more accurate lengths, quantities, and coordination.  Modeling with these components in Revit provides detailers in construction firms’ greater certainty that the model accurately reflects the intended installation.

Using the fabrication content on the MEP Fabrication Parts palette, you can add the components by selecting them and using the Smart Snapping tool easily connect to mechanical equipment.
