The equipment families used for the design of your MEP engineering systems are important—not only for coordinating the physical model, but also for establishing the components that serve as the equipment for your engineering systems. The properties you assign to your equipment families will define how they can be used in relation to other components within a system.
Many mechanical and electrical equipment items require clearance space for maintenance and installation. With Autodesk® Revit® MEP 2013, you can define the required clearances for equipment families either directly in the family files or as a separate component.
