Few manufacturers have developed their product catalogs for Revi MEP and in this post we talk about Systemair. Unlike others they didn’t send a huge full of families arranged at their discretion but a selection software for the AHU units and a plug-in for Revit that imports the file generated, as a family, in our project.
In the version I tested the families exported only had information about the air connectors although the families parameters are not yet linked to the connector parameters.
The hydraulic parameters are not yet included, honestly do not understand why you skipped. As for the electrical parameters, as Systemair, not included by the installation of the equipment in situ are not typical configurations but still electricity consumption unchanged.
Manage the selection program has some difficulty and we leave Systemair experts who choose the conditioner that best suits our needs and send together with the financial offer SystemaAirCad file. For now this workflow is that we should lower.
Install the software
From their official website we download and install the software SystemairCAD selection, we will find in the “Global / Support / Software tools / SystemairCAD”. On the same page we have instructions on installing the plug-in for Autodesk Revit
IMPORT OF 3D MODELS TO AUTODESK REVIT
SystemairCAD is able to export a DMR file of a 3D CAD model.
A small plug-in have to be installed, to import the 3D model to Autodesk Revit.
The import plug-in together with instructions how to install it can be downloaded via the following link:
The purpose of the connection is to add Systemair air handling units selected with SystemairCAD into MagiCAD for Revit or Revit project and drawing.
Import an AHU
The plug-in offers two options for importing an air conditioner but we are going to focus only on the second, importing a file. “dmr” exported from SystemairCAD.
