We have a giant historical building project being integrated into REVIT 2009.  Is there a way to produce Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Communications drawings from Revit Architecture?  Or is this something only done in MEP?

it would be cool if you are able to borrow the licences but i dont think you can. the thing about having it all...in rac, you basically have all of revit structure, and mep being the best has everything rac has minus 2 things.

"Is there a way to produce 'MPE' in Revit Architecture...." N.O. no!; so why then call it BIM? Revit Architecture is not a complete BIM software cuz you can't place ducts for one thing. Either you buy the Revit Mechanical or you have to customize it. It's not for small project Architect/Builders. If you are an architect, you have to have a project greater than 25 tons HVAC and hire a Mechanical engineer with a Revit Mechanical to collaborate with your Revit Architecture to make sense  and complete advantage in Revit BIM. Otherwise, don't buy one and just design your 5 tons HVAC residential or small projects with plain old CAD. Revit do not consider Architects who design their own building systems. Wonder why Revit included some structural Items in Revit Architecture and completely ignored the other important systems. Do they even know that Architects in most States or Counties can sign less than 15 tons of HVAC systems?

You wrote:" ...just design your 5 tons HVAC residential or small projects with plain old CAD..."  <<  Go ahead!  But I would prefer to do it in Revit Architecture ... and I can do it a whole lot easier than using CAD.

In this case I HIGHLY suggest you move to the REVIT Building Design Suite Premium.

RAC, RST, RME + 3DS MAX.

 

I've personally never seen MEP design being done within the confines of an "Architectural" office unlesa there is an engineer employed. In which case they need some software.

My 2 cents.

I agree, with DGCad, I had three different licenses, Revit ARCH, MEP, STRUCT. Now with BDS, is wonderful, and hardly more expensive.

dgcad and mpsteve - You misread the post.  VersionX was talking about simple, non-engineered sytems.  No ductwork, piping or electrical panel boards.  So just drafting - no enginnering.  That is why I responded that it would be easier to do that in Revit.

 

Obviously Revit's MEP does so much more than what this poster wants to do.  And plain old CAD won't do what Revit MEP does.  I guess this poster doesn't understand that just like in Revit where you need the MEP package, you also need the MEP package in AutoCAD if you want to do any MEP systems work instead of just drafting.
