Wavin BIM Revit video tutorial: “How to insert actual instead of generic bends in your BIM projects”
Wavin Revit content is so accurate that it allows one-to-one transition from the 3D model to the real build. Our Revit packages have integrated intelligent assistance which allows Revit modelers to insert accurate bends which can be ordered and installed as easy as generic Revit bends in your BIM model. This gives users the great advantage of being able to generate a very accurate BOM (bill of materials). And that’s just one of the many features of our Revit content packages. As an excellent example, check out how to insert and validate Wavin bends into Revit projects:
Insert actual bends in record time
Standard Revit piping functionality allow you to draw bends with almost any angle. Not so with Wavin’s Revit content packages. The integrated intelligent assistance provides impeccable checks and balances, so as to only allow you to draw the bends at angles that exist within the product portfolio used, thus preventing potential inaccuracies in the pipe design. And you don’t have to refer to a product catalogue. In this tutorial video, we show you how simple it is to change the type of bend, as well as how to reverse the direction of a bend. We demonstrate, for example, how a 90° bend can be quickly and accurately changed to an assembly of two 45° bends. We also show you how to validate your view, giving you the benefit of seeing the accurate installation model level of detail of your project. Now it’s your turn to try it out.
