Vince, thank you for the tips. I have a couple of questions in regards using fabrication content for design. We are a design build firm and have a engineering dept that works solely in revit and have a fab dept that lives in autocad, my question has to do with the graphics shown by fab parts, from my understanding our cd should only be shown in single line and no double like fab shows it. If you could point me in the right direction that would be great. Thanks again!

Hi Jes, from our tech team:
If you are designing and wanting to do single line, you could start with Revit parts to maintain that single line from the design standpoint and then convert it all to fabrication parts later as one option. It would give you that first single line that you would need, and if you continued on and went to build it, convert design to Fabrication. It would be more work than just designing with Fabrication parts, but it would give you the single line that you want to use in all MEP parts.

You could convert the Revit Families to Fabrication Parts and export it as a .MAJ file and import it into Fabrication CADmep so that the fab group could take it and fabricate it as needed.

Hope that helps! Feel free to call us if you would like more information.
