[Applause] Welcome to my channel click and design let’s get started so today we will be going to create electrical systems or that will create a new project let’s go to new project and choose a system template browse and select system default metric template open again and then create a new project

Your template is being loaded ok so here is the template next thing we have to insert the Revit file for that we’ll go to insert then link Revit ok I have this architect file over here and bhavish new I will choose Auto origin to origin then

Open so the Revit file is being linked to this system default metric template ok so now we will see how to create litical systems like lightning systems power system etc ok so for that let’s start with the project browser and here you can see electrical discipline and we

Have to dust and we have to sub-disciplines lightning and power before the lightning we will go to the ceiling path let’s say first electrical ceiling plan ok now we here can see the ceiling okay before that let’s go to the West elevation okay here we see we have

This West elevation and we can see this level – it is from the metric template and the second floor it is from the architect file now I will align these two levels to each other okay and the base level will be the second floor or gal selected and

What I have to do is to coincidentally level two from the template file to the second floor okay so I will select now level two so these two levels you can see they have been coincident now then you can log okay so now we have to create a ceiling okay a false ceiling

For the reference purpose only because we’ll be applying the lightening fixtures and for that we need a false ceiling so we’ll create a reference plane okay and on that reference plane we will be applying this fixtures okay for that lets go to architecture and here you can see reference plane so

First of all I will make a reference plane let’s say roughly I am sketching it now okay then I will select this reference plane and now you can see the values from the level 1 to this plane so I can modify it let’s say 3000 so here

We have this reference plane okay so on this reference plane we need to create a birth parents okay so let a name it so I will click this plane and we’ll name it like lightning okay so here we have our reference plane as lightning and now I will go to this

Working plane to attach our lightning pictures but that I will go to the ceiling and ceiling electrical so right now I’ll be attaching some Lightning pictures on the ceiling okay for that I will go to systems then I see here electrical okay in the last you can see lightning

Fixtures okay so we have a list of different sizes or you can load some family if you want some different I think fixture let’s say I will choose first is 600 into 600 forget this lightning fixture and will attach on the working plane okay for that I will

Select this place on work plane okay so it will automatically be aligned to the working plane so let’s start with this room over here and let’s fix some pictures in this room okay you see I have a – some Lightning pictures in this one okay let’s draw a

Section here I have this section and let’s go to the view okay so you can see this fixtures over here this lightning fixtures 1 and they are attached to the level or to the plane which I created before you caught lightning okay so let’s go back to exceeding view if you

Want to create a system out of this lightning pictures the silica any of the fixture here then go to power ok so now we are going to create a power system so next you have to go to this edit circuit and then we’ll add the remaining

Fixtures to the circuit ok so I have added them and then next I will finish editing circuit ok so let’s see I will select a fixture and will press tab so here is my circuit ok so let us do it again I will select a fixture and then

Press tab it will select all the circuit so you can see this circuit has been selected and after selecting circuit I see these two symbols ok so this is basically the type of wiring Revit is asking me for the wiring which wiring you want so I have arc wiring and I have

Chamfer wiring so let’s use for our query ok I have selected our query now you can see here we have wiring between these fixtures let’s pick the viewpoint and shade it now you can see we have wiring between the fixtures this was about creating a power system to to

View this system you can go to view okay and user interface here you will see system browser selected go to electrical and you will see a power system has been created in our system browser okay so here is our system and here are the four fixtures which we added okay

Now let’s add a switch to this system for that I will go to systems then we’ll go to electrical here I have device and lighting okay now I will introduce a switch to this lightning fixtures okay now I need to place the switch on the

Vertical face on a wall okay so here I have wall and I will just place it okay you can also mention the elevation if you have different elevation okay so I have applied this pitch over here you can see this switch okay so now let’s create another system with the help of

The switch and let’s connect this switch to this already made the system okay for that I will again choose a lightning fixture okay and then we will choose switch from the tap electrical circuits so here I’ve selected the switch and now we’ll go to edit which system okay now I

Have to add all the fixtures over here so fixtures I have added and then select the switch so I will select the switch here is the switch and then finish editing system okay so see one more system has been created with the help of switch for that I’ll go to switch will

Press Turkey you can see system has been created so this is how we create electrical systems in Revit MEP it was a small example let’s make it more bigger let’s add some more features to this project okay so let I delete this system so our system has been deleted but let’s say

This is the our project and now we need to create electrical system in this project ceiling okay so first of all let’s get started putting all the fixtures in the ceiling on the wall on the floors if required okay now I will select the fixtures I will go to systems then electrical

Then I will select some lighting fixtures first of all okay so let’s say I have this plain lighting fixture and we’ll select the workplane to attach them okay so air high light fun so see if I have attached all the lighting fixtures in all the rooms

Okay to make it look like a real project for that I will go to mechanical equipment okay and then I will see I have something French over here let’s say this Vav over here let’s check it elevation let let it be three four zero zero okay and here I put this

Okay so right now I cannot view this equipment because of the view settings but that I will go to visibility in the properties edit and then we’ll select all and we’ll check all the entities then make it apply okay so here I can see my mechanical equipment so I will be

Copping some equipments across this ceiling so let’s copy it further here I copy them let be heirs of me and okay here okay I think it’s enough we are assuming this all the mechanical equipment inside the ceilings so now I need to include an electrical equipment for that I’ll go to electrical then

Electrical equipment here I will add electrical panel or that I will choose let’s say 250 ampere electrical panel and the elevation you can mention accordingly okay so let I place it somewhere here maybe or maybe here you let I place it over here on this wall okay so here I have this elliptical

Pattern okay so we have lighting fixtures we have electrical panels we have mechanical equipment okay so now we need to convert this all so now we will add all these fixtures all these equipments into one system so now we will be adding all this equipments fixtures into a

System okay with the help of cable tray and conduits create a system okay let’s drop the system okay so first of all we will start from this panel electrical panel okay for this I will create a section about this panel okay again sheets vo I will go to view and

Now here I have my electrical panel let’s define the view and shade it it is the liquid to a panel so now let’s go back to the power view okay here we have the power view and now we’ll be creating the cable this for that I will go to

Electrical and we’ll choose cable tray we have different types of cable tray in the eternity here you can see the ledger types solid active wire mesh types let’s choose channel cable tray okay so here we have the cable tray and accordingly you can define the width and

The height of the cable tray and the elevation that the elevation will be 3 4 0 0 okay let’s start this cable tray or here will distribute electricity throughout this ceiling okay so here we have this cable tray okay let’s make the view find and

Shade it okay and now I need some more cable trays for that I will again you go to electrical cable tray and will create a branch so here I’m creating a branch Accordingly one more branch I need electrical we will play here is more function so you can see how easily we can create a cable tray and this cable tray it is automatically taking this cable tray fittings okay as per the size of the cable tray

So this is our main cable tray now we need to draw some branch cable to it for that I will again use electrical command then we’ll go to cable tray and I will perform now a small cable tray of width let’s say 200 okay and we’ll make some branches

Let’s see here in branch and some more bunches inland a branch ik let’s go over here and one more I need looks at this one okay register you can delete so here we have made some branches let’s make some more branches faster You can see we have created all the branches so now I will go to this section go to view and see it is my cable tray I need to make it attached to my panel so let’s join for the walkable tray okay and now let’s align it or you

Can just shift so now you can see I have aligned this cable tray with this panel okay let’s make it more further till this panel okay let’s go to now power you after creating this network of cable trays we will now model electrical conduits which will carry the

Electricity from the panel to this electrical fixtures or equipments okay one thing more let’s open this mechanical equipments we cannot see them in this view so we will go to visibility graphics again and here we will check this mechanical equipments to see them better okay fly so here we see some mechanical

Equipments which we added before first of all we will start from the panel to make electrical conduits let’s sketch them okay in the electrical I have electrical conduit okay now again Revit is asking to specify the diameter of the conduit and elevation let the diameter of the convert be 63

Okay and the elevation will be matching this cable tray okay same which we have it cable tray okay here we have electrical conduit here we have our cable tray so see here the elevation we have three four zero zero for the cable tray and

For the can do it we also need the same elevation so that both can run together at same elevation so here we have our electrical conduit okay now let’s make it shift to the cable tray I think it will be better to change the type of the

Cable trays let’s select all the cable trays in this view go to filter and let’s choose all the cable trays and change type okay I’m here I can choose later type so see why I am choosing the letter type cable tray because leather type cable tray they will be open and we

Can easily see the electrical conduits going through them okay you learn better air efficient so now see we have this cable trays opened and now let’s create some electrical conduits going from the fan to the electrical fixtures now we will create converts about this cable

Trays for that I will go to systems and electrical tab and wait here I will choose the diameter that will be 35 and a division that will be 3400 ok let’s start making hundreds I will start from here here I go I will take a turn and first

Of all will supply through this lighting fixture over here oh we have made one conduct let’s shift it little above now let’s make one more conduit electrical conduit and along with this first can do it I will draw the second one here and then all above I will void this

Electrical fixture now adjust this converts both the left so we can have more space for the other converts so see these conduits have reached to the electrical fixtures okay so let’s make some more converts system electrical conduit and again let’s make one more just make one more conduit over here and

It will go so I’ve sketched one more conduit make it balanced in the center so we have this convergent in the center okay okay so now here we can see this cable tray it is small for all the conduits to fit together so we need to change the size of this cable tray

Let’s select them this cable tape I need the size to be little more we’ll go to filter and we’ll check only the cable trays okay and we’ll change the side and we’ll change the size to be let’s say 450 so you can see now we have little more

Space than before and a big cable tray let’s shift this conduits little above to save the space okay I think this is more better than before now we have more space So now I have placed all the converts in the cable tray now need to pay some junction boxes for the converts just now with the help of converts we will connect all these fixtures let’s start let’s go to electrical conduit let’s create a conduit over here one and a Kent

Over here so we will create now some junction boxes with the help of conduit so okay here we have the branchlets great can do it over here and let’s merge it to this and do it so you can see here we have one junction box over

Here okay now what we will do let’s create one more conduit from here let’s connect it to this conduit okay now we need to connect this convert this fixture let’s make remember it again so let’s lick the equipment we can see here we have this electrical connection so we need to

Rotate this equipment by 90 degrees and now we can see we have this little connection over here so now we need to create the junction box to provide electricity to this equipment so again we’ll use electrical conduit and let’s tap it over here and here we get a

Convert which will provide the wiring to the mechanically and okay to connect this electrical fixture or lighting fixture if again we need a conduit so you can see in this way we can provide wiring to all these fixtures or the mechanical equipment so rest of the

Wiring I will do faster with that for junction box So right now we have created all the conduits and we have connected all the converts with electrical fixtures and mechanical equipments okay so let’s see this view in 3d we’ll go to 3d view so here you can see all the fixtures connected to each other with the help of cable trays and conduits

Here you can see we need to continue this Android’s to the electrical panel so let’s do it for that I will go to Power View shade it drop conduit and then we’ll change the elevation ooh one two zero zero and then apply Let’s go transection you owe to you so we have dissolve this converts now I will create a section section and now we’ll create a section here is a section small section and we’ll reverse this direction here go to view so you can see here all the scandals coming down and I

Need to slice them over here so I will use this command and modify split elements lice I can do it and will delete the rest of the part which are not needed and this joint also why not you again I will go to the Power View so in this

Section I’m gonna go to view to align of this bandage to this particular panel we’ll choose the line come on and we’ll choose the center line will select all the androids one by one okay so now I have aligned all these converts there’s again go to 3d view you

See here all this converts adenine well on the electrical panel okay
