[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Today's Four Minute Friday video shows many tips and tricks to produce a good Plumbing Isometric View. This includes managing the scope of the view, the visibility of other pipe systems, getting vent pipes to display with the correct line type, and controllling the visibility of plumbing fixtures so tags are visible while the fixtures are not.

We start the process in a floor plan view where we have already created and designed the pipes. We will then go into a 3D view where we will walk you through the process to create a good Isometric view.

Check out the video for the best tips and tricks of Revit MEP Isometric Plumbing.
