The initial goal in creating this tool was simply to be able to build a valid Revit piping/ plumbing model suitable for coordination purposes, and then print recognizable construction documents. The package has grown to include an increasing list of pipe types and manufacturers, including more than six hundred fittings. This offering includes standards for ASTM, ANSI, and AWWA pipe materials, sizes, schedules, and connection types. The fittings are all manufacturer specific and restrictive to only the sizes and angles available in the manufacturer's catalog. There is a package available for three releases of Revit MEP: 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
The Pipe and Fittings Package installation includes templates, families, and lookup tables. Fittings can only be placed at angles that correlate to real product. The advantage of the package is to maintain model integrity, as well as convey design intent in the 2-D space. The sizes of pipe available include larger diameter types needed for many designs.
A dedicated team of Engineers and modelers are constantly developing and improving on the existing offerings.
