I am using revit2011. How do I draw infloor heating tubing loops? Are there any Manifolds available? I use the pline command in autocad, then do a 'list' to get lenght of loop. In revit I am hopelessly lost as to how to do this. Please can you help me out?

Are you in Revit MEP or Revit Arch?

 

I doubt there is any content yet for this specialty system.  I'm sure you could build a couple of families to do this and that you could schedule them.  Perhaps someone can step up to help you -

 

It looks like if you ggogle: hydronic in floor heating revit... you may find some things.

If all you want to do is sketch detail lines you could try something similar to what is described in this thread from AUGI...http://forums.augi.com/showthread.php?t=81636&highlight=pline

 

Otherwise - please post your findings if you decide to model the piping.  We haven't had to try and do this yet in our office, but that doesn't mean we won't have to in the future and would love to know how you made out, thanks-

Looks like this is a pretty old post but anyways,

I work for a PEX manufacturer and I'm currently creating Revit Families for exactly this.  I've almost for the supply and return manifolds finished...I'm just looking for a little more information before I say they're done.  I'll post a link when I'm done.  I haven’t found anything on this yet either...

Thanks, I am very interested in getting somewhere with this tubing stuff. All our hot and cold water lines are done with pex tubing as well. We go as far as 2" and as small as 1/2". I do not know how to show this in our projects either. Any help is greatly appriciated.

Hi.

I am working on a project with radial heating in Revit MEP, and I am having some issues.

And news on the topic? 

 

Cheers Smile

I will be posting my Revit families there (in the AutoCAD and Revit tab).  It's empty except for the CAD details I've created.  But, supply and return heating manifolds are coming very soon.  I'm trying to get 20 some heating manifold families on there by March 15th.  Feel free to take what you need when I post them, and please, please, please, feel free to comment on them or make any suggestions.  I'm not a heating guy myself, and I’ve found nothing online about making families like this, so I just gave it a shot, they’re not going to be perfect by any means, but they’re better than nothing.

Download the file - TruFLOW Jr. Assembly Balancing Valves and Valveless.zip

Here are the first 7 heating manifolds I've created. Please leave feedback if you use them.  I'm not a heating guy and this Revit stuff is still pretty new to me...

just as a little tip -- revit doesn't like to use splines.  You can draw splines with detail lines and such, but they often won't work for modeling with.  Best to stick with arcs.

Well, I finally managed to do 3d tubing in a long about way. Create dwg floor plans, insert these into a new family then use model lines and arcs to draw the path for the sweep. Create a pofile click on the path (using refence planes to get the 3d risers) and you now have a 3d tubing layout. Repeat for however many loops you need. Then delete the dwg and insert into your project.

I do not know how to get the loop lenghts to list, still fighting with that. Thanks for the manifolds, they look great.
