Creating openings for model objects no longer needs to be a time-consuming and detailed task. Using the GRAITEC PowerPack for Revit® Openings tool, designers can now swiftly generate openings at intersections which can be instantly assessed at the click of a button. The model can be interrogated further to discover intersecting pipes, ducts, cable trays and other linear items and openings can be globally applied in a single action, saving considerable time.
The Pipe Opening tool actively monitors intersections using a traffic light color coding system, giving the designer an early advantage of avoiding costly complications when collisions arise, and to greatly improve communication and co-ordination between disciplines. Default openings can be applied based on the service size, range or shape, and any changes made by mechanical designers are monitored by the tool, with the ability to view and approve the effects.
