My company is currently using Revit 9.1.  We usually do our own MEP work on small projects and my bosses are condsidering purchasing a seat of Revit MEP for us to use on those projects.  The questions we have concerning the MEP version are these: 1.  How does Revit MEP make the duct work, piping, etc?   Does it go by the sweep extrustion technique, drawing the path of the piping and then attaching a profile, or does it work some other way?  2.  Does Revit MEP have/show the pipe connections?  If someone is willing to post a sample project for us to take a look at we would really appreciate it.  Thanks.

I am an architect. I have seen the demo on MEP. I must say very impressive indeed!

Since you bosses are considering of buying Revit MEP, why not contact the Revit dealer to get their salesperson to do a demo for you. I am sure they are well trianed to show you a few tricks but maybe not in practical sense. I think the demo should highlight the key features on MEP capabilities. 

G'day mate. I am migrating to Sydney, Australia. Looking for Revit Architect position. Any taker? Thanks. Kim Wong.

1.  Drawing pipes and ducts is just like the wall command in Revit 9.1.  You click "Duct" select the size and just draw it like you do a wall.  2.  MEP does have and show pipe connections. 

I dont really have any good examples of it at the moment, but if I ever get one done I will post.

Revit MEP is in its beginnings.  There is a lot of content lacking in the program, that you would ave to design yourself.  If you are using it on small projects, you might be better off then tose of us that are learning to use the software on large project.  Currently the Industry is reconizing a 6 month ramp up time for the software, but that is in larger firms that are employing several users.  My company is using 4 people, and we are in our fourth month of software use.  We have a long way to go before the porgram will have enough content, and when we will feel confortable using all the design tools that Revit offers.  As for now, the software is difficult to use, and there is not enough readaly avalible training.  Use the Software now, and you will be ahead of the curve, but it will take a lot of work.

there should be generic p-traps that come with out of the box software. search the imperial/metric libraries.
